1 Year Anniversary Map Background Contest - Community Creators Converge! Create a Map Background and win credits to last a lifetime and purchase all in-game content! Due to 22nd of July.

Scrape together, hoard the talented, forgather the pixels and cluster your ideas onto MINDNIGHT's first Map Contest.
Since the last Skin Community Creation contest, we have been asked hundreds of times when would we organize the next community contest.

Here we are now! We hope you gathered all your strength and patience cause this will be a hard one. A lot of explanation to do and a lot of instructions to respect in order to qualify as being the Map BG King. In addition in winning a lot of In-Game Credits, your map will be implemented in the game and we will also send a shiny nice MINDNIGHT T-shirt to your house. It will smell of indie developers, we apologize in advance. You should wash it before wearing it.

In order to participate you need to create a map background for MINDNIGHT in 2 weeks.
The contest will be over on the 22nd of July.
Current map backgrounds are two, Subway and Backalley. You can see them here.

Technical instructions

In order to create a map you need to know the following technical instructions:

  1. The map size in pixels is 789px X 338px
  2. This size represent a wide version, in order for the background to support wide-screens
  3. Here you can download a .psd, in case you use Photoshop. In the .psd you will be able to see the folowing layers:
- Subway_BG and BackAlley_BG for your reference
- Instructions layer group with: 16:9 Visible area on screens with that aspect ratio, a safezone of the Character Area aka where the skins and players reside with their chat bubbles and last but no least Players Layer, where you are able to see the layout of a full 8-man game session
- Also you will be able to see a HUD layer, where we have the HUD elements accordingly to a 1920 by 1080 resolution.

In order for the map to be eligible for the contest it needs to respect the size.
The map can be created in any other software.

In order to facilitate other community members creations in other software we have created this album, with all of the layers separately in PNGs for your discretion to import them.

Artistic instructions

There is not much to tell here, but we recommend in using the same perspective in order to keep the map consistent with other maps. The perspective that we are talking it's a one-point perspective where buildings and objects have their sides hidden and not visible. See the other two maps for your reference.

You have creative freedom as long as it does not contain nudity, sexual and religious themes or other subjects that are perceived as being controversial topics in the world right now. You cannot depict alive or dead characters or locations with religious or political meaning.

It's a plus if the map will contain lore elements and/or it's part of San Francisco, where most of the action and story takes part in MINDNIGHT. If you are keen in using or respecting the lore, here you will find a resume of the game's lore.

Prizes and Rules

  1. The map is eligible if it respects the 789px X 338px size
  2. Any map that steals content or it's not an original creation will be disqualified and the respective player will also be banned from all MINDNIGHT servers.
  3. Any map that contains inappropriate content will be disqualified.
  4. In order to be eligible for the contest you need to submit your map file/s via Reddit, Discord (map-contest channel) or e-mail at contact [at] nomoon.io by the 22nd of July 2018. You can send a download link through Dropbox, Google Drive or WeTransfer. Any other link created by any other provider will be ignored and disqualified.


1st place - 100.000 In-Game Credits and an exclusive skin that is no longer on sale, chosen by you. And a MINDNIGHT T-shirt.

2nd place - 50.000 In-Game Credits

3rd place - 25.000 In-Game Credits

“Game was a lot of fun, enjoyed playing with friends”
8/10 – The Drastik Measure


Steam Greenlight

This game was possible with the help of the Greenlight process and Valve. Thanks a lot for the support and trust that you gave us.

About This Game

MINDNIGHT is a FREE TO PLAY online multiplayer game of social deduction for 5 to 8 players, a take on the classic party games such as Werewolf and The Resistance. It is a game of deceit, accusations and unpredictability. It challenges the player's ability to lie and detect other players that are lying.


Players are assigned a random role to be either Agents or Hackers. In order to win the game with your team you must capture three nodes.

In each round, there are three phases. The Talking Phase, The Voting Phase and the Mission Phase.After a team proposal for a mission node, each player on the proposed and voted team must secretly perform an action on the mission node. Agents may only secure the node. Hackers may either secure or hack based on their preference.

Hackers have the objective to hack three nodes while Agents need to secure three nodes from the total of five. As a hacker you know who your fellow hackers are, but as an agent, you know only who you are.

Take a look at the How To Play Video to better understand the rules and gameplay.

‰‰ Secure. Seek. Subvert. ¬þ±±

Be an agent attempting to secure the city network, or be a hacker attempting to compromise and defeat them. Utilize your communication, manipulation, and deduction skills to persuade others and win the game. You’ll never play the same game twice.

Set in a future cyberpunk San Francisco, in 2038, cities have crushed the open internet. Networks are locked by security nodes and need to be maintained by NTF agents. Hackers have been searching for a way to break into them for years.

Save or corrupt the network by working together. Remember...in the future, anyone could be compromised. Who can you trust? ±

The game is a tribute to social party games such as The Resistance and Werewolf. As MINDNIGHT is heavily inspired after these games, we are looking into other table-top deduction social games to bring new features and modes along the way through updates. MINDNIGHT is a game that was created initially in a internal game jam.
