So, you play Final Fantasy XIV, right? And in it you have a house to call your own, right? Well, a house is nothing but an empty shell without items to fill it up, right? So, you’ve gone throughout the land and looked at the furnishings and other items that you can put in it and you just don’t like any of them! What are you to do? Well, what if you could design your own? What if your design could be given to the entire playerbase? Well, Square Enix is giving you the chance to do exactly that.
Welcome to the Final Fantasy XIV Furnishing Contest! In this contest, you’ll put your art and design skills to the test to try and create a piece of furniture that would look great in not only your home, but the homes of players across the land! Do you think you have what it takes?
Now, to be clear, there are rules for this design contest, not the least of which is that there are limits to who can participate (based on country) so be sure to check out the site (via the link above) to see if you qualify.
If you do, then it’s time to get to work. You need to digitally draw (or draw physically and take a picture of) a piece of furniture that you feel fits the style of Final Fantasy XIV in some way. Then, in an email to the team, you’ll need to tell them about your furniture. What kind of category it fits into, what material it’s made of, etc. You’ll also need to make 3 pics of your piece so they can see it from the front, side, and back.
There is no limit to how many entries you can put in, so go nuts if you want to. The contest is live now, and will go on until the 28th.
