Design a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Quest, Win a Contest

GSC Game World is giving creative S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fans an opportunity to see their best ideas put to use in the upcoming post-Chernobyl shooter S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.

Remember the time that guy in Yanov was talking smack and taking credit for all kinds of things he didn't actually do? Or how about when they discovered that huge lair of bloodsuckers that was killing stalkers night after night, and dumped the whole mess onto your lap? Or when that guy asked you to help him hunt down that mutant dog thing that turned out to have two heads, an armored hide and claws like railroad spikes?

Good times for sure, and now's your chance to prove that you can come up with even better ways to make people squeal like little girlies while they blindly spray bullets into the black Ukrainian night. GSC Game World is giving gamers a chance to get their names in the credits and their ideas in the game with the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Quest Contest, a simple little competition with some very simple rules.

It goes like this. Come up with a cool idea for a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 quest. Write it down, in either Russian or English, clearly and concisely, using no more than half of an A4 page. If you don't know what an A4 page is, Google it. Put your name and the title of your quest at the top of the page. Save it as a .doc, .rtf or .txt file, then mail it to [email protected] with the subject line "S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-2 quest contest entry." Then wait a couple of years for the game to come out.

Actually, you won't have to wait quite that long: The contest runs until March 1, 2011 and winners will presumably be notified fairly shortly thereafter. Winners will get their names in the credits and "may" have their quests included in the game, although GSC naturally reserves the right to mix and mash things up as they see fit. Got some good ideas for bad things to do to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. players? Check out the full contest details at the official S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Facebook page.

Already have ideas, but for obvious reasons i cannot tell you.

U mad?!

Honestly, I would pitch in a few ideas/concepts, but half a A4 page sounds..Limited for some reason.

I'll enter this probably... need time to plan though.

I hope they can bring back the immersion of the SoC. Clear sky didn't cut it and CoP was more polished but way less atmospheric.

Basically they just need to re-release SoC with all of the good work the modders were doing also have one continuous world with no loading screens between areas. Oblivion Lost, LURK, and Complete all are great ideas that deserve to be added to the full game.

Anomaly fields marked on your map SUCK. And the detector makes bolts pointless which takes a ton of fun out of the game. Also artifacts only spawning when you get close to them is totally lame.

Also COP had WAY too much ammo and medical supplies.

And FOR CTHULU'S SAKE do NOT make it into a cover shooter.

Da comrade. It involves teaming up with Colonel Sammich. He may be a loose canon, but he's a damn good Cop.

I must be mad. Why would i want to give away good concepts to other people before i can submit them myself? There is no logic behind that action.

I hope you wasn't taking that sentence too serious, just having a chuckle behind your back. :( FORGIVE ME PLZ?!

Relax, we are on the internet, the world's largest MMO. I don't take anything seriously. I am here to have fun with and like the rest of the human race, you included.

On that note: how about a mission where you must execute the beta testers of STALKER?

That would be hard, as due to a bug, they never spawn.

Thank you, GSC, for being unfailingly community oriented.

GSC (next to Valve) are probably the company with the best PR and reputation in the indusrty .
They make a TV series, a FRIGGIN FESTIVAL IN THE CENTRE OF KIEV (no other game can say that... not even CoD with its 2453567734 dollers)[email protected]# and contests and many more stufff just so that they can have a good rep.

Hope someone makes something really cool. Though with just an half of an A4 is a little bit short for a decent quest. But i may be wrong.
But who the hell does not know what an A4 is??
Or is the word not common in some countries?
i dunno, but it seems weird for me.
Anyways, fingers crossed that someone will make some epic story.

I've got a idea. Lets just say it involves putting on a dress and bending over...

heheh

Then the second part of the mission is to use a community patch to break down their defences. 5 quicksaves and quickloads later they glitch and are spontaneously deleted from the zone. Your reward is a better, bug free game.

A writer, a scientist and a Stalker enter The Zone and have super long mass effect branching conversations concerning the nature of existence. The game spends long amounts of time focused on trees and stuff before climaxing in an abandoned building with artistically laid out piles of sand.

A quest where you have to change all of freedoms nappies and burp them before bed.

A quest where you have to clean out Freedoms Kennel and clean up after their mess around the zone. Freedom Dogs

A quest where you have to convince Duty to stop pwning Freedom by giving them cookies Freedom baked.

A quest where you have to sit with Freedom and join in their drum circles and wear tie die shirts... Fucking hippies.
