First off we wanted to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in our first ever Zooba Skin Design Contest! We had so many awesome submissions come in and we are grateful for each and every one of you that took the time to submit an idea! We’ll be honest, this was one of the toughest decisions we’ve had to make, especially since OVER 3,000 skin designs were entered! WOW!
Before we announce who the winners are we also wanted to talk about what we had to take into consideration when looking at the submissions. There were a lot of factors we had to think about for example, if we had made or are currently making a similar skin, if it infringed on Intellectual Property, or even if it was doable from a technical standpoint! With that aside, let’s give a big congratulations to our winners below!
Congratulations to our First Place Winner: “Plague Doctor Steve” designed by Chanthar Yee. You will have your skin design added to the game plus receive 5,000 gems! (You will receive your own skin and other top two designs once released!)
Along with this we wanted to give a special shoutout to our second and third place winners! Initially we had said we would only be making the first place skin design, but our team loved the top three so much that we will be making ALL TOP THREE skins come to life in Zooba!!
Congratulations to our Second Place winner: “Adventure Molly and Joey” designed by Kyon Schram! You will receive the First Place skin design, have your skin design added to the game plus receive 3,000 gems! (You will receive your own skin and other top two designs once released!)
And a final congratulations to our Third Place winner: “Lonely Samurai Ollie“ designed by Mária Hegedűs! You will receive the First Place skin design, have your skin design added to the game plus receive 1,000 gems! (You will receive your own skin and other top two designs once released!)
