A Gala of Shameless Self-Promotion

galaAugust2022

Calling all Mondrian Makers! A Gala of Shameless Self-Promotion is now live. Unlike our previous Gala contests, we will not be judging your creations on gameplay or artistic merit. This time we’re embracing the ways of the new millennium and we’re challenging you to acquire the one thing that obviously really matters in this world: Likes.


The Basics

  • Make any creation in Mondrian Maker and upload it to Steam Workshop before September 2
  • Use a corner logo in your thumbnail and share your creation across your social media accounts
  • Gather as many Likes as you can! Top 3 most liked creations get custom frames and Steam Points.

In-Depth

The rules of the Gala are simple:

  1. You can make any creation you like! It can be an abstract, a pixel art, or something we’ve never even seen before. You can Paint it or use the Dynamic Color Harmonies to your advantage. You can use the included Background Artworks or bring in your own. It’s completely up to you!
  2. Your Creation, Thumbnail, and associated social posts must be Publicly visible.
  3. Once your creation is complete, upload it to Steam Workshop from Mondrian Maker and make sure “Gala Entry” is set in the Share window.
  4. Share the Thumbnail, use the hashtag #makeAMondrian, and include a link to your creation on the Social Media of your choice: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, TikTok, Minds, Gab, reddit, imgur, it honestly does not matter.
  5. After you’ve posted everywhere you want to, add the direct links to the social posts in your Steam Workshop creation’s description. Then start gathering those Likes!

Gala submissions will close at the end of the week (September 2), after which it’ll be time to count up those Likes! These include:

  • Likes from each, individual social media post you’ve added to your creation’s Steam Workshop description
  • Favorites your Creation has earned on Steam Workshop (the Star button, as this number is publicly visible)
  • Awards your Creation has earned on Steam Workshop (total number, not their value)

For the purposes of simplicity, all reactions, whether Likes, Loves, Cares, etc. will be treated equivalently, one point each. The Top 3 creations with the most Likes at the time of counting will receive a prize pack. As usual, there will be some fun prizes involved!

  • First Place: Custom Gold Thumbnail Frame, 4800 Steam Points, Mondrian Series Bundle Steam Keys
  • Second Place: Custom Silver Thumbnail Frame, 2400 Steam Points, Mondrian – Plastic Reality Lifetime Pass Steam Key
  • Third Place: Custom Bronze Thumbnail Frame, 1200 Steam Points, Mondrian – Plastic Reality Lifetime Pass Steam Key

This contest is open to both Free Admission and premium Lifetime Pass players, meaning you do not need to purchase Mondrian – Plastic Reality to participate, just to download the demo on Steam. All entries will receive a custom Wood Frame thumbnail in their Developer Comments on Steam Workshop and you are welcome to add this as an extra image on your Creation’s page. General Rules of Gala Submissions still apply, so please click here for more details.

Prizes will be delivered to winners early next week. We’re very excited to see what you can cook up, and as always, thank you for playing.
