Age of Empires Design Competition!

While spending most of my time writing, editing and designing '2013', I still manage to put in a good few hours gaming, and lately the game of choice has been 'Age of Empires Online'

Anyone unfamiliar with this game should check it out. The artwork moves away from the original AoE series, but the game play is still good for an RTS, and its free!

So.. my mind was been going a little like this 'AOEO, Zombies, AOEO, Zombies, AOEO...' and when I picked up a 'Hammer of Kaveh' in the game this morning (a powerful item) that I don’t need, I thought hey, competition time!

Here's the idea...

Choose your favourite unit/advisor/character in the AOEO game and Zombify it!
Mail me the image, or send me a link to it.
I will feature the best ones here on my blog, AND....

Now the small print....
All entries must be your own work, please don’t steal other peoples images.
You must be on (or able to transfer) to the Marathon Server, should you win the prize.
The draw will be made using
Closing Date for the competition is Midnight (BST) August 4th. The winner will be drawn and posted on August the 5th.

Depending on the popularity of this competition I may increase the prize pool (as you can see in the photo I do have other spare Legendary items!).

And, please, if you get the time check out the rules for my 2013 game. You can print it off and try it! Any feedback would be much appreciated.


PS. What y'all think of my attempt?


  1. here is a spearman with a woad warrior head on his spear

  2. how can we see the entrie?

  3. my brother complained it wasn't good enough so I did a little more
