    Update:
    Cubekin just went LIVE on the app store! Get it now at:
    http://itunes.apple.com/app/cubekin/id399885978?mt=8

    Or, since I just love TF2maps.net and how much you guys have helped me out as a mapper, just use this super secret (but make sure to tell everyone) link:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/589952/Unity...ekin_full.html

    Hi all! Long time, no see!

    This is for all the creative souls on the TF2 forums, who want a chance to show off what they can do...and possibly win something cool! ($25 iTunes gift card, or community "Prize Jar"!)

    I need Cubekin entries! :D

    Basically, "Cubekin" is a stylized, cube-oid, 3D pumpkin carver, that challenges you to really be creative and clever with your art. We need lots more gallery entries to show off what can be created, hence the contest and this post!

    Check out "www.cubekin.tumblr.com", to see what other's have already made, go to the "about" section for more info and a link to the web player, and then click "submit" to post your masterpiece! :D

    BTW, it's also totally, 100% cool to use your Cubekin and it's caption, up to 140 characters, as promotion/etc for your own (likely nefarious) ends!

    Cubekin will be (hopefully) launching as an iPhone app just before Halloween, so the webplayer won't be up much longer!

    Lastly, if you submitted a Cubekin or want to keep up-to-date on new ones, you can follow via twitter, "@6by7studio"

    Thanks, excited to see what everyone can come up with!! :D

    ;) hahaha. it's all about makin the most of what you gots!

    The best things always come from situations where options are limited...it forces out our most ingenius, imaginative, and clever bits of creativity!

    hmm...that's a good marketing phrase for this thing...haha :D

    thanks...but I don't see your cubekin submitted yet! ;)

    I'm... not even seeing where we make one? I was actually going to mess around with it, but alas I could not locate this supposed 'webplayer' thing and I fear I'll get absorbed back into my work shortly.

    Hi grazr- once you submit it (cubekin.tumblr.com/submit), I check for things like...oh i dunno...certain body parts, nazi flags, or references to bands i don't like, and then hit publish :D

    speaking of, checking for yours right now...

    thanks!!

    Egyptian dancers and llamas!! Please don't give up, I beg of you! :)

    www.cubekin.tumblr.com/submit didn't work for you?

    Or did I miss-type it before? I just checked and that link is correct...sorry if I messed it up previously :(

    Please retry the Llamas, must h as Llamas (and egyptian dancers)! One last try :)
