Supercell's Brawl Stars has introduced a neat new community feature where talented players can design skins for their favourite characters. Supercell Make is described as "a place to create, share, and vote on community-made content for Brawl Stars".
Basically, Supercell will put out a call for skins for one specific character at a time, in this case it's for brawler Bo, and the winners will be decided by a community vote. If a skin is selected by the Brawl Stars team to be added to the game, its creator will be eligible for a $10,000 reward.
Several of the submissions I've seen so far are super impressive. Some of my favourites include Bunny Bo, Bo Dragon, Bo the Samurai, Horus Bo, Mecha Bo, and Parrot Bo. There are clearly a ton of very talented players in the community, and I could honestly see most of these skins eventually finding their way into the game.
All 3D assets are provided Make, and some of the compatible tools you could use include Blender, Maya, Cinema4D, or 3DS Max. That said, according to the official site, any 3D tool that supports. fbx models and .png textures should work just as well. The full list of helpful guidelines and tips can be seen right here.
At the time of writing, Horus Bo from creator gedi-kor has received 8000 votes, putting it in first place. Bo Dragon is currently in second place with close to 7000. Submissions are open until January 20th, voting closes on February 3rd, and winners will be announced within one week of voting closing.
Reckon you've got what it takes to design an awesome skin for Bo? Then best head over to the official site to download the required assets and submit your creation. And you'll find Brawl Stars available for download now from both the App Store and Google Play.Nominate your Game of the Year for the Pocket Gamer People's Choice Award 2020.
