Galactic Keep: Dice Battles - Create a Creature Contest!
Welcome to the first CREATE A CREATURE contest for Galactic Keep: Dice Battles, a sci-fi, dice-based adventure for iOS.
Create a creature, post it here (in this thread) and have it chosen (by TA user vote) to be featured as an enemy in the game!
Here’s what you’ll need to do. Tell us about your creature:
Species: The name people use when referring to your creature.
SubSpecies (if any): Is it a particular ‘version’ of the species?
Size: Small, medium, large...XXXL?
Diet: Carnivore? Yes please.
Physical Description: “Holy s**t! You won’t believe what I just saw. It had a...”. Add a quick sketch if you want!
Narrative Description: A brief description (3 to 4 sentences) to, you know, give your creature a backstory, bring it to life!
We will pick our top ten favorites, they will be announced in this TA thread on March 7th (entries must be in by 6pm EST on Friday March 7th). After the ten choices are announced, toucharcade users will choose the top three in a poll. The winners will have their creatures featured somewhere in the first module of the game!!
Next, after the voting ends and the three winners are chosen, we’ll sketch up the creatures in the style of the game and post them for all to see. As soon as they are programmed into the game we will post a video of the new enemies locked in mortal dice combat with a player! You create it, we’ll kill it!
You can also follow us on TWITTER and tweet about your entry: include your creatures name and a little something about it, make sure to add @gildedskull and #galactickeep to the tweet. Quick and easy! At least one of our ten choices will come from an entry that was also tweeted!
As an example, here’s a creature that is already in the game:
SubSpecies (if any): Bear
Size: medium to large, twice the size of a human
Diet: omnivore, scavenger
Physical Description: It has a head that resembles a human skull, very large (hulking) shoulders and a virtually hairless body. The forelimbs of the creature are fitted with bone-like claws that can grow in excess of a full meter in length.
Narrative Description: These creatures fear nothing. The appearance of their skull-like head is a foreboding message that usually leads to anguish. They are known to stalk their prey for hours before striking when their mark is most vulnerable.

If you're not inclined to click links (I feel bad, that must make the internet hard for you) here is a short summary covering the basics of the game:
The world of Galactic Keep: Dice Battles is rendered to feel like a tabletop role playing game. Roll a die to move, explore maps and to battle enemies. Puzzles and mysteries set into the world require choices that redirect the game story. Collect weapons, battle strange and unique creatures and seek out new classes of playable characters as you protect the universe from an unseen, evil hand.
In the past, we hosted a 'create a character contest' for the game that had some *very* amazing entries and a rather cool winner who will be featured as one of the first seven playable characters in the game. Here's a link to that thread.
Good luck and we hope to see some curious and bizarre entries!
