#gamescomcharacter: Top 16 is chosen – vote now and win!


We asked: If gamescom were a game character or a superhero, how would he/she look like? What would his/her hidden super power be?

And you answered with all your creativity: We received over 430 submissions with characters ranging from fluffy superanimals, muscular fighters to manga superwomen. Our top-class jury consisting of Oskar Pannier, the Blitz, Nino Kerl, Maja Felicitas and Salome Soe Gschwind-Penski chose their Top 16.

Their criteria were that the figure cannot be based on or resemble an already existing figure. The participants had to come up with something truly unique. The superpower has to be apparent, be it by showing or describing it. The figure has an individual style, is somehow funny or has an unmistakable signature in another way. Furthermore, a good technical execution was criterion.

In a second round the jury will vote an overall winner from the Top 16, who wins a gamescom VIP package consisting of tickets for all days of gamescom 2016, overnight stays and a T-shirt.
