The swirling chaos of the World of Depleted is fraught with perils on all sides. Chief among them is the clashing factions that war over the remnants of the world. From the clashes between the vicious American anti-Tech Neo-Palidins to the European pro-Tech tribal Tekothik, to the battles between the brutal N.I.R. of Spain and the shrouded cloistered Order of the Steel Rood, there are few places that still aren’t be torn up. (In the former United States, there are even two factions of self-styled Confederate southerners who war to see who really are the TRUE Sons of the South.)
The good folks at Corel are happy to help you get into the action of the World of Depleted with their new software package, MotionStudio 3D! (Be sure to read Matt Terry’s 8.8/10 review in this issue!) MotionStudio 3D makes creating 3D logos and icons a breeze, so you’ll be able to use the demo of the program to make your own logos for some of the new factions in World of Depleted. The best submissions will be included in the World of Depleted as official content as well as being showcased in an official Corel gallery on Corel’s website, as well as on their YouTube and Facebook pages. There are seven prize packs, with the grand prize winner receiving over $1000 in cutting edge Corel software for art, video, and 3D animation!
