ICARUS Beta Weekend 7 Photo and Build Contest, RTX 3080 Giveaway Details Announced

As part of the final ICARUS Beta Weekend, developer RocketWerkz is holding both a graphics card giveaway and two game-related competitions: a Best Photo competition, and a Best Build competition. To aid Prospectors in capturing their work, Beta Weekend 7 will launch with a new Photo Mode, as well as NVIDIA’s RTX Global Illumination tech.

  • Best Environment Photo – The best beautiful but deadly with beautifully-lit scenery
  • Best Action Photo – Capture a moment of intense gameplay frozen in time
  • Best Team Photo – Showcase your teamwork or comradery

To enter the Best Photo competition, submit your photo(s) in the Icarus Discord‘s  #bw7-photo-competition channel, or use the hashtag #icarusphoto on Twitter or Instagram.

  • Best Skyscraper – Not necessarily the tallest, but the build that gives the best sense of height
  • Most Impossible Build – The build that seemingly defies the laws of physics and gravity
  • Best Geography – The build that best uses the terrain it is built on, in or around. Maybe a cave, island, cliff face or outcrop.

To enter the Best Build competition, submit a video or screenshot(s) of your build in the Icarus Discord‘s  #bw7-building-competition channel, or use the hashtag #icarusbuild on Twitter or Instagram.

The winner of each category will win the following:

  • Icarus T-shirt
  • Icarus mousepad
  • Icarus Wings enamel pin
  • USD$140 Steam Wallet funds (NZD$200)
  • Icarus Supporters Edition key
  • Logitech Pro Wired Gaming Mouse and Gaming Keyboard

We’ve pulled most of the important Terms and Conditions, and highlighted the key ones for you:

  • Entries close 12 noon PST / 8pm UTC on Tuesday 23 November 2021
  • Only three entries per person will be considered (across both categories)
  • Only entries created during Beta Weekend 7 will be considered
  • No external editing allowed
  • Only PNGs, JPGs, MP4s or MOV files will be accepted. Videos can also be submitted as YouTube links or Vimeo links as an alternative
  • Entries can be taken using Icarus’ Photo Mode (press NumPad 9), Steam screenshots or other tools but must not include any branding
  • For the Best Photo Competition, each image is considered an entry
  • For the Best Build Competition, each entry can be either a video or series of images but must be a singular building project. This can include multiple buildings in the same space, but not across multiple prospects
  • RocketWerkz reserves the right to publish and use your entries in Icarus promotions
  • Winners will be announced on Discord and Steam by Friday, November 26th
