2014 House Depot Contest Winners

Posted by on 31 comments


Everyone who participated in the competition (so long as you didn’t cheat!) will receive a 2014 House Depot Badge for your AQWorlds Character Page. Please be patient while award each badge as it will take us several days to complete the process.  The winners in the below categories will receive special prizes in addition to their Badge. Let’s see if you won!

Grand Prize Winner Winners

This was a tough one. So many amazing submissions and we could only choose 1 Grand Prize Winner. But we couldn’t pick just 1… so we have 2 Grand Prize Winners!

Pirate’s Paradise

Created by Mr Zul and Capn Cio

Tired after a plunderin’ day? Drop anchor on ye’ TreehouseShip, Matey! All the amenities of a true Pirate’s Life at ye’ hooks: white sand at ye’ peg-leg, peaceful quarters, convenient hangin’ point on your Crow’s Nest an’ 100 miles to Tortulgar Inn only! Yarrrr!

House of Vita

Created by Prime, Nici , Ryuu

The house of the Stars, this structure is the remainder of an ancient civilization, Vita. Living knowledge of the cosmos is stored within its crystal shards. The entire structure is powered by the Stars gem at the top.

These two houses will soon be created in AdventureQuest Worlds for everyone to enjoy. The players who created these houses will receive their creation for FREE, plus a bonus of 1,500 AdventureCoins! Woohoo!

1st Place Winners

These players did an AMAZING job designing their houses! We wish we could transform ALL of these into in-game houses, but we’re just a small team and only have so many hands (we’re looking to employ an artistic octopus). These 1st Place Winners will receive 1,000 AdventureCoins in AQWorlds =D

DerpSonic: "What's this? Something to do with Twilly?" *Scrolls down* "OMG OMG IT'S A TWILLY COUCH OMG OMG!" Also, the whole mailbox thing isn't a bad idea! It would be cool if there was a similar concept in-game. By the way, that derp house: genius.

18lunastar: Some of these entries I thought I did better than, but oh well. It's just a matter of opinion. I didn't like any of these. Perhaps mine was too simple.
