We had tons of fun with the item concept contest back in September, so this month we’re doing another one! Submit your your neat ideas for equippable game items in this thread, using the format provided. We’ll select a shortlist of fun and exciting concepts, then the community (you) will vote on your favorites! The most popular concept will be released into the game as a powerful new item! The player with the winning submission will have the final result awarded to their inventory, as well as a bonus package of 50 Favor Points! SUBMISSIONS To submit your concept to the GearJam, please follow the format below: NAME: What your item is called. Please keep this under 25 characters TYPE: (Weapon, Matey or Ship) DESCRIPTION: This is “look and feel” information that tells the artist what you have in mind. Try to include some visual information such as details about shapes, colors, textures, etc. If you wish you can also include conceptual information to help add flavor.
