Event Gif Contest! Show Us What You've Been Doing [Deadline June 19th at 11:59 PM]

Hello! As Next Fest winds down, we’d like to see what you’ve been up to. What better way than to hold a contest! We’re interested in fun gifs that show off the game, show off your skills, or are just hilariously fun.

Deadline: June 19th at 11:59 PM Eastern

How to enter:

  • Make a fun gif in the game
  • Follow @TheArcaneWaters (we need to be able to DM the winner)
  • Tweet the gif to @TheArcaneWaters or reply to our tweet for the event
  • Use the hashtag #ArcaneWatersContest
We may have multiple winners; the number will be determined by the total number of overall people who submit an entry. Any overall winner will each be able to pick one prize from the following hats:

Pirate’s Choice Award:
The entry with the most likes and retweets will receive the “Pirate’s Choice Award” and be able to choose one of the caravel skins listed below:

Judging Criteria:
Judging will be based upon the creativity and cleverness of your gif. Extra points if your gif would encourage a new player to come check out the game.

Other Information:
  • Winners will be announced on Twitter, in this forum thread, and notified via DM. They’ll then need to respond to the DM so we know what prize they want.
  • While we hope not to need to wipe character progress after the demo, if we’re forced to do that during the development before Early Access, we will make sure you get your prize again.
  • By entering this contest you agree that we may use your creation for social media or other marketing purposes.
  • You can enter more than once, but only one entry per person will be awarded a prize.
  • If you do not use the #ArcaneWatersContest hashtag, we won't see your entry. So please make sure you add that.
  • There is a /gif command in the game you can use to create it. Be sure it’s enabled in your options.
  • You’re welcome to edit the /gif however you want. There are some free online editors that don’t require you to download a program which can help you crop or resize your gif.
For any additional questions, please check the Q&A thread we have here.
