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.

THE WINNERS WILL RECEIVE:

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

Worst Map Background (but usable) - 10.000 In-Game Credits


The Map Contest starts now! Good luck and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to join our Discord and tag the devs.

Hey there MINDNIGHTERS,

We just rolled another small update, in our effort to update the game more often. This update contains skins that were proposed by the community in a Skin Creation Contest.

The skins were proposed originally by:

  • Generic User (the most talented skin creator) - Hangover John
  • gangster_heart (one of our veteran players and ranked 1 in-game) - Grim Reaper
  • Fudjijama (one of our beloved Discord moderators, xoxo!) - Tuxedo Guy (Kingpin from Spider-Man)
  • iwanPlays (a great youtuber and content creator) - Shodan (System Shock)
  • Snuwolfie aka Eva (Skin Contest Big Prize Winner) - Leela (Futurama)

You can see the original Contest prizes and winners below:


Together with these skins we are creating a bundle that it is valued at over 17$ in this update that contains all of the Skins from this community event and it can be purchased for only 6.99$!

Now, the complete changelog for 2.2.4 update:

  • Five new skins proposed by the community in the last Skin Contest Event
  • Added a skin bundle in the Credits Marketplace for only 6.99$
  • A sound will now be played after each purchase


As a closing note for some of you that might be concerned about this. We will never add anything regarding monetization that will affect the gameplay in anyway.

For those that want to support the game, you can always choose to purchase cosmetic features in our game or not. Nevertheless playing our game will always overwhelm us and that is the best way to support the game.

Join our discord to take part in development chat and find games - discord.gg/mindnight

Thanks, have fun and cheers!
