Mojang and Microsoft are running a cat contest in Minecraft. Basically, it's a chance for one lucky player to have their very own feline added to the game. Here's how the competition came about:
Our excellent pixel artist, Jasper Boestra, has already designed loads of cute-tacular new cat skins that are coming to the game. But he was too lazy/untalented to make the final one. So that's where YOU come in!
All you have to do to enter is take a photo or video of the cat you think deserves to be in Minecraft, then share it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #Minecraftcatcontest
Submissions can be made until 12th November. After this, the game's community team will be deciding on the best three cats based on the following judging criteria:
- 33.3% Is the cat unique looking?
- 33.3% Could the cat be successfully rendered into Minecraft content?
- 33.3% Would the cat appeal to other Minecraft players?
The best three cats will then be posted on a social media site - to be announced - and the public will vote for their favourite entry by logging in. One vote is allowed per person and social media account, and the winning cat will be announced on 19th November. It will then be added to the game as part of the Village and Pillage update, arriving next year.
