RESULTS: Building Challenge - The Colossal Statue



Wooh, what a challenge. We were a little worried the "Colossal Statue" theme might be too difficult, but once again, the community baffles us and completely blows our expectations out of the water. Seriously, I've had devs looking over my shoulder asking me "how the heck did they do that?" as I was sorting through the entries and I'm like, "well, you know, I taught them and stuff." Just kidding, seriously, you guys are great.

Honourable Mentions

These two builders may not have made it to first position, but we still had to show them off, because these statues are incredible.

Stenpett, the Bricktrons are going to go on strike if you keep overworking them like that, man! They have rights! Stenpett shared two builds with us for this challenge, both of them are pretty sweet.

A neat tribute to a gaming classic. By the way, anyone else see the resemblance between Pacman and the Bricktrons? Evolution at work?!

Dear mother of colossi, Stenpett. That is one HUGE statue! Thanks for conveniently placing a mountain nearby for size comparison. ;)

Not a conventional statue, but very original build by HateMe. Very creative double-sided construction. It's not easy to see, but one side is a face and the other one a skull, representing life and death. That's deep, HateMe. That's deep.

We almost didn't see your statue, Syfo, almost! Luckily, we lurk the Steam screenshots section regularly and spotted it there. Make sure to share it on our forums next time! Either way, this is a seriously beautiful colossus you've built! The sword in the ground, the gazing into the distance and the little Bricktron knights you lined up at its base! It's really great, hats off to you!

The Winner!

Edvic007!

Ah. May. Zing. Seriously. Getting chills looking at your screenshots, Edvic! That is a really impressive statue. We're loving how you built it on its own island, sword up in the air, it even has a helmet! Wow. We're pretty speechless, what a display of skill.

That's all folks!

Thank you to everyone who participated to this not-so-easy challenge, you guys are really good. Too good, actually. We're starting to re-consider our "Devs V.S. Players" tournament to spare ourselves the embarrassment.

Keep an eye out for the next challenge, coming soon! ;)

    Nice work everyone!
    Sadly you thwarted my plan of using my tower once again! I was going to build a dinosaur (which looked like a dog) but I destroyed the foot and it collapsed. I think it was for the best as it blinded whoever looked at it.
  • Nice statues, really impressive Edvic!

    Do you have any screens? I would like to be blinded.

    That gave us a really good laugh. :lol:
