    Have some great visual design ideas for a sweet new game item? Let’s see what you’ve got!

    From now until Sunday, September 20th, submit your item concepts to this thread by commenting below. The Kano Creative Team will pick their favourite based on how well it meets the submission criteria, as well as how fun and interesting it would be to make.

    The winner will see their entry added into the game as a powerful Limited Quantity item, get a free one for their inventory, and receive a package of 50 Favor Points!

    Submission criteria are below. Please read them carefully! Entries that follow the criteria carefully will have a much better shot at winning. Entries that ignore the criteria will be disqualified and might be removed from the thread.


    Your submission MUST include:
    • A name for your item that is under 25 characters long.
    • The type of item (Weapon, Vehicle, Armor)
    • A description of the item’s appearance that is under 500 characters long. You can check the length here.

    This is a visual design contest! What we’re looking for is the kind of information we would give to our illustrators to help them understand what the item is supposed to look like.

    Creative names are great, but the most important part of your submission is the description. Item creation is a technical as well as a creative process. Give the artist clear and detailed information about the item’s appearance.

    Remember, you have limited space and the illustrator is first and foremost concerned with key visual elements. Think about how you can best specify the shapes, colors, and textures of the image you have in mind.


    Name: Tacticool Assault Rifle

    Type: Weapon

    Description: A futuristic-looking matte tan assault rifle with smooth lines and rounded edges. The magazine is a standard NATO box magazine and is behind the trigger making it a "bullpup" weapon. On the rifle are a bunch of elaborate attachments such as a large scope on the top of the rifle and flashlights and laser sights on the side and a foregrip on the front of the rifle underneath the barrel. The gun is displayed on an angle to the viewer so as to display the entirety of the weapon and its various add-ons.


    Stick to one single item submission per post, please! You can post more than once if you wish, but please don’t spam the thread or your entries may be removed.

    In the past, we’ve allowed participants to include images with their entries. Not this time! We’re looking for interesting concepts straight from your own imagination, so you’re going to have to do this one without visual aids. Entries that include pictures will be disqualified and will be removed from the thread.

    Keep the game’s theme in mind! While we do make some exceptions, don’t be surprised if submissions of ancient longboats don’t gain a lot of traction with our illustrators when they’re looking to make gear for a modern day-based title.

    Name: Coffee Machine Tank

    Type: Vehicle


    It delivers fresh coffee that lets you stay awake longer, giving you the edge on your enemies. While appearing like a normal service vehicle on the outside, nobody would assume it's an undercover combat tool. Futuristic blaster weapons on top of the Tank are covered as colourful attraction lights. The sign with coffee offers can be turned over, revealing an arsenal of cannon tubes. Why not invite your rivals to a nice cup and trick them into an ambush? It's a modern Trojan horse.

    Name: Street Sweeper
    Type: Vehicle

    Description: A typical street sweeper modified for suburban warfare. The body is reinforced using junkyard car hoods, and the brushes replaced with circular saw blades. A bandana clad mobster hangs out each window, one brandishing a ratbasher, the other a lead pipe. The driver has a maniacal look on his face as he swerves INTO a rival group of mobsters. Best used for clearing out large mobs while keeping innocent folks safe from random flying bullets. Caution: Does not sweep streets

    Name: Piercing Rose
    Type: Weapon

    Description: The whole rose would be shown at a slight 45 degree angle with mostly the flower exposed. It looks like a normal rose at first sight, but showing the head of the flower, you can see a loaded gun or barrel with a spike in the center of the flower. It would have a twisting hinge on the stem which would act as the trigger to launch the spike. The petals could have a slight metallic look to it, along with a shiny bladed edge. When enemies lean in for a whiff, it'll be the last one they take.

    Name: Loaded Baked Potato
    Type: Weapon

    Description: Everybody loves a good loaded baked potato, but your enemies won't be enjoying this one. It's on top of a white porcelain plate. It has a dry, light brown leathery outside texture, as a potato would. Freshly melted cheddar is running down the sides, drizzled cream cheese on top of it, and sprinkled spots of shredded mozzarella along with it. Green onions are scattered on it as well. A timer in the front, and a lit fuse one of the sides. And you could guess what this potato is loaded with.

    Sorry, I'm hungry.
