JANUARY 14, 2022, KYOTO, JAPAN – Development studio Q-Games today announced a community driven design competition to celebrate the revival of The Tomorrow Children. Following the recent IP acquisition from Sony Interactive Entertainment, Q-Games has confirmed that the upcoming release will include a plethora of brand new content, with elements inspired by the community. The studio is inviting fans of the cult PlayStation hit to create their very own island design for a chance to see it included in the upcoming release of the game.
The Tomorrow Children is a collaborative adventure game set within an alternate future, inviting players to work together to rebuild civilization following a neo-Soviet experiment-gone-wrong. The breath-taking world is set within ‘The Void’ and is made up of uniquely distinguished islands, offering much-needed access to resources and supplies. Q-Games is providing the opportunity for one player to leave a permanent mark within the world of The Tomorrow Children, by designing their own island that will be shared with players across the globe.
The winning concept will be selected by the game’s Director, Dylan Cuthbert and developed into a full island design that will be included in the upcoming release of The Tomorrow Children. No game design experience is required to take part and there are no restrictions on format for submissions, aside from the requirement for the concept to be represented visually rather than in text format.
Submissions for the contest are open now and entries close on February 1st, 2022. For more details on how to enter and to view the full terms and conditions, visit the Q-Games website: or join the official Q-Games Discord server.
To celebrate the launch of the contest, Q-Games have released several pieces of never-before-seen concept artwork from the original development of The Tomorrow Children for PlayStation 4.
Dylan Cuthbert, Game Director and Founder of Q-Games said: “The passion and excitement we’ve seen from the community since our announcement of The Tomorrow Children’s return has been extraordinary. They continued to keep the dream alive whilst we worked to acquire the IP and now we have the opportunity to give back by offering a chance to be a part of the game’s future.
We’ve been working hard to implement brand new features and content into the game and we’re really looking forward to sharing the recent updates. This contest will allow us to embody the spirit of our players permanently into the game alongside our latest additions, which to us is incredibly special!”
Island design entries should be sent to TTCIslandContest@q-games.com with the subject line, “TTC Island Design Contest”. The contest runs from January 14th until February 1, 2022.
Designs can also be shared on social media using #TTCIslands. The winning entry will be announced on the Q-Games website by July 15th, 2022 and the winner will receive exclusive merchandise from Q-Games. The winner’s name will also be added to the credits of The Tomorrow Children.
