The story

It was the year 2414 when the entire human race was forced to leave planet Earth as a result of the disorder in the parallel universe. It directly affected the solar system and whole Universe as we know it. No one knows what exactly happened, but the living conditions on the majority of planets became unhabitable. In these times of instability and race migration a war broke out when two origins had collided one with another due to growing supply needs and habitable territories.

The galaxy split into the origins of good and evil. The good ones were concerned to restore stability and overcome the crisis in a peaceful way. The evil ones, however, had a desire to use this crisis to take control over the whole Universe. It marked the beginning of a war that would last for hundreds of years. It still continues to this day, and the universe needs you to end this conflict!

Brave 3D designer, it is time for you to take a side - join Polyguardians or Enraged Verticians. Design anything that could help your side win: spaceships, characters, buildings, vehicles, guns - you name it. Anything goes! And let the stronger side win. That’s right - the participants of the winning side will be awarded with a special prizes. However, the most stunning model and portfolio will be selected from all entries of the challenge.

Join the battle for the Universe!
