Writing Competition Winners

As you may remember we held a writing competition last month. We had a huge number of entries (well over 1,000) so it took us a bit longer than we had planned to go through them all.

The vast majority of the entries were really good and it was incredibly tough deciding on the winners.  However Ian (Xaelath) and I have finally managed to decide on the winning submissions.

The winners and their entries are:

Armand H,  Police Transcript & DOD Letter

Tsvetoslav S, Horologist

Oliver C, Diary of Tim Newman 1-3

Jesus K, To Maria Santos

Joule P C, Newborn Baby

Vincent N, I told Bill not to bring the .22. 1-4

"Lucian", Flight Transcript & An Essay on the Degree of Consciousness

"BrightsideGuy", Necrophilliac's Note

"Jack", 3 Entries: Notes from Jack/Elizabeth

Abel O, Chili Con Canine

Nadera M, The Stew

Jordan B, Filth outside my door again

Stephanie H, Photographer's Diary

T.S. Eleanore, My Sweet Little Child

"ClockworkCookie", The Beasts 1-4

S. D. Kang, Because she was Penny to me

Jessica N, Mary-Ann


Well done to you all! I really can't wait to put these pieces into the game.

If you are one of the winners you should already have received an email from us detailing the next steps. Unfortunately, if your name doesn't appear above, and you haven't already received an email then that means you were unsuccessful. Even so, thank you very much for taking part and don't give up on the writing! We may very well hold another one of these competitions soon :)

    1. It was really hard to win this one, just because we had so many, and the quality on all of them was so good. Please don't feel bad.

    1. Yup it did take a while. We had to spend at least 2 minutes reading each, then go through them all again for a second pass on the top 100. Almost 40 hours total I guess :)

    Put my writing to more fruitful rewards doing music :)

    1. Contact support.deadfrontier.com. We are normally happy to overturn old bans as long as it's not something super serious like hacking or credit card fraud.

  15. Hello administrator, I want to ask you a question, in your minimum requirements, you set 2gb of ram, but operating systems of 64 bits, which works correctly with 4 gb of ram or more.
    My computer has 2 gb of ram, processor i3, and a good enough graphics card, but, I can only use 32-bit operating system, will not you configure the game to work in 32 bits? if you do not, many who meet your minimum requirements, can not play this wonderful game.

    Excuse English, I use a translator.

  16. I have a question about these DF1 "milestones" you talked about in the FAQ you've posted recently in the DF2 Official Discord channel: Once the game launches fully, will these milestone rewards still be achievable or do these milestones have to be completed before the game's final launch, therefore making them impossible to get afterwards?
