Good afternoon from Age of Empires HQ in Microsoft Studios! It’s the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time for a new edition of our monthly contest, Wololo Wednesday. Last month, we asked you to redesign the box cover of your favorite Age of Empires game, and we received some incredible submissions. Let’s take a look at the March winners and announce the April contest!
Congratulations to the three March Wololo Wednesday winners:
It was difficult to pick the winners this month since there were so many awesome entries from talented individuals. Therefore, we’re allowing everyone who participated in the contest to choose one prize from the prize list. In addition, winners can pick an extra prize, for a total of three.
Have a look at all of the custom box art we received:
And now, without further ado, let’s move on to this month’s contest. Even if you’ve never played Age of Empires II, chances are you recognize the three warriors on the front cover. They’ve been waiting patiently on the box for almost fifteen years now, and it’s about time they got outside and experienced the world.
To participate in the April Wololo Wednesday contest, we want you to show off your Photoshop skills and place our three warrior friends in interesting or humorous situations. Be sure to submit your images in this forum thread (NOT in the comments below) by Wednesday, April 29th at 11:59 PM PST/GMT-8. The Age of Empires community team will pick our three favorite submissions as winners, and they’ll get to choose two items from the prize list above.
If you’d like some help, you can download a cutout of the three warriors on OneDrive.
You can find the full official rules here.
We were extremely impressed with the artistic talent from our community last month, and we can’t wait to see your submissions for this contest! GLHF!
