Posted by GillB on October 29, 2004

A reminder that you have 2 more days to get your entries to me. So far we’ve had one entry – I’m sure more than one person has had a disaster that’s worth a screenshot …

October Screenshot Competition

Posted by GillB on October 7, 2004

The October competition is being widened to include all the citybuilding games in the hopes of attracting more entries. The best entries will be added to our gallery.

So, what’s the competition? It’s for a screenshot, taken in normal gameplay, for the heading ‘Worst Disaster‘. Earthquake, fire, flood … any shot that you think comes under that description can be entered. I realise that not all the games have the same disasters, but each has something that can come under that heading.

Contest Rules:

1. Your screenshot must be an image generated only by the core game (which does include the ‘cheats’).

2. Your screenshot must be saved in jpg, jpeg, or gif format.

3. Your screenshot must not be retouched using image-editing software.

4. Your screenshot must not contain content in violation of HeavenGames rules and guidelines.

5. Screenshots must be received by 31st October.

Screenshot Submissions:

1. You may enter a maximum of one screenshot for each of the CB games.

2. Submit your screenshot by attaching it to an email sent to

Children of the Nile Section

Posted by GraniteQ on August 11, 2004

We’ve been busy, as you will soon notice, collecting lots of information for the upcoming Egytian game, Children of the Nile, from places like the official forums; and gathered it all in a little compendium. You can find it here

You can also find the Heaven Games interview with Chris Beatrice there, and some new screen shots. Yes, new screenshots!

The current design is still a temporary one, so don’t be too disappointed if everything doesn’t quite work yet.

Many thanks to the Heaven Games team comprising Jayhawk, Pecunia, EJay and Granite Q, and special thanks of course to Chris Beatrice of Tilted Mill. 😉


February’s Poseidon Competition ‘The Ridge’

Posted by Angel Jayhawk on January 26, 2004

Our resident contest wizard: Granite Q has been working his fingers to the bone again. This time to provide a neat little Poseidon Competition to chase away the gloom of winter with some mediterranean sun.

“To the north of the great river lies a tall tree-covered ridge; no-one knows what lies beyond. Many have tried to scale the ridge, but no-one has yet succeeded. If a way across it can be found, surely a great city could be built there, able to house as many people as possible”.

The Competition closes at 12 midnight ET(US), 22nd February 2004.
