We here are Greater Than Games know that many of you have all sorts of great idea for you own heroes, villains, and environments. We want to give all of you character-inventors a chance to join in on an expansion with the Greater Than Games team!

 

Baron Blade demands Villains!

 

We are in the early production stages of a Time Travel/Alternate Reality based expansion, and we are putting out a casting call for Villains! We only have space for one more villain (the rest are all ready to go!), so there can only be one winner, but the chosen entry will be given the Greater Than Games treatment; you will work with the Greater Than Games team on your character, and then that villain will be published in our next expansion!

We will begin taking submissions on September 3rd, at which point we will release a full write-up and the details of what winning will entail on this website. Please, hold on your your ideas for now! Start crafting your nefarious masterminds, your time-jumping evil-doers, your unhinged assassins, and be ready to submit them at the beginning of September. We will be accepting submissions for at least a week or two, so you have plenty of time.

Now get out there are save that Multiverse! Hurry - more villains are coming...

Look, Title Bug!

Are we just designing the character itself, or are we coming up with its general playstyle and gameplay too?

As much or as little as you like! However, the more work you put into it, the more likely we are to get into that character!

Are we allowed to make up villians for existing characters, or would you want a wholly unique villain?

 

Because I can totally do both.

It is if you have the powers of the time-twisting villain you are trying to create!

Stop lurking, it makes you look like a villain target

*arrives with a slightly wheezy whooomp-whoooomp* Right, fools! Prepare to tremble before the temporal might of...what do you mean there's still a week to go? *Checks controls* What? Stupid useless piece of junk! I should never have gone to Best Buy for the &*$%&^"£ chronal calibration unit. *vanishes*

Any villain which you can justify going into a Time Travel/Alternate Reality based expansion!

Might as well ask now: Will we be allowed to submit multiple villains if we happen to have multiple good ideas? Or multiple ideas we think are good, anyway.

My intention is to limit it to 2 or 3 entries per person, just so it doesn't get overwhelming. So, each person will get at least two entries, possibly three. We'll see what the next week brings...

Ooh! Awesome! It's not that often you find a contest aimed at game designers! This will be fun...

There is a chipmunk in the center of the universe.

In Ghat they believe in vampire watermelons, although folklore is silent about what they believe about vampire watermelons.
Possibly they suck back.
