We’re happy to join our Community’s initiative in setting up a Mask Design Contest for Absolver in the following weeks, please read carefully the post below to know everything about this event!

Please note that a Gameplay Beta is taking place on Steam on the 3rd and 4th of March, here is the dedicated post

How To Enter

  • Create an original Mask design for the game Absolver. Only digital images will be accepted, this includes photographs of hand drawn / sculpted designs. Examples of authorised submissions: digital painting, photomontage, scanned drawing, picture of a painting etc.
  • The mask should be accompanied by relevant description / lore that makes it believable and showcases how it would fit into the world of Absolver.
  • Four winners will be selected in total, three will be selected via community votes and one will be selected by the Sloclap team.
  • Winners will be announced via our website, social media and by direct contact to the winner’s Discord Profile. Submissions end on 25/03/18 12:00am GMT. The Team’s choice will be integrated into the game in an ulterior patch (barring minor design adaptations to fit the game’s technical constraints). The Popular Choice will be submitted to visitor’s votes via a TypeForm poll. The winner will be designated following interpretation of the TypeForm poll results.
  • The winner chosen by Sloclap will be featured in the game. The winners chosen by the community will be awarded a $50 / $25 / $10 gift card respectively for their chosen platform (Steam or PlayStation Network.) Each of the 4 winners will also win 1 Special Reserve Games edition of Absolver (Steam+Mask bundle or PS4+Mask bundle).
