    Siege Editor Master Class Contest Begins Today

    Winners to be Trained by Gas Powered Games, Developers of Dungeon Siege

    Microsoft Game Studios and Gas Powered Games today announced the Siege Editor Master Class Contest that will bring five creative individuals to Kirkland, Washington to be trained by the developers of Dungeon Siege. The contest begins today and runs until September 20, 2002. Winners will be announced on October 4 and will then be flown to Gas Powered games on November 1 for an intensive training session run by members of the Gas Powered Games development team.

    Would-be game developers are asked to submit an essay that describes why they should be chosen to attend this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Entrants should also explain what they would create with the Siege Editor if chosen, how they think the training session would help reach this goal, and how their newfound knowledge could benefit others in the Dungeon Siege community. To help get a head start with the Siege Editor, download the Dungeon Siege Tool Kit and explore the online Siege University at http://www.dungeonsiege.com/su.shtml.
