Public Voting on Neo Devroom's "Ruin Roundup" Begins

Imagine you are a seasoned and accomplished Digger. You've been on countless adventures over the years. Unfurled bizarre mysteries. Battled building sized Reaverbots. You've got so many refractors in the bank, it's kind of ridiculous, frankly. And no pirate's going to try to mess with you, because you maxed out your Shining Laser. It's hanging right there on the wall, next to your SSS Digger's license, and a framed picture of you with Mayor Amelia. You two had dinner together. As you sit back in your leather recliner, swishing around a glass of vintage 20XX wine, and flipping through the latest issue of ACTION, you stop and have to think. Just which of those adventures really was your favorite? What was the best ruin you ever conquered?

Well it's time for you to decide that now. If you'll recall, the Neo Devroom, those true blue Legends fans keeping the MML3 spirit alive, started a contest for generating new ruins. Now, the finalists have been narrowed down, and it's up to you to decide on which one is the most fantastical. You can head over to the Neo Devroom activity and vote among the five finalists. There are prizes at stake for the winners, so make it count! And give the Neo Devroom guys some serious cred for keeping hope alive!

Conjure Ruins of Mystery in the Next MML3 Neo Devroom Event

Mega Man Legends enthusiasts cease to let up, and have been continuing the work of the Mega Man Legends 3 Devroom, if at least to keep up the spirit. You may recall the original Neo Devroom contest to design a weapon, and it wrapped up with big results. For this next contest, the aims are even bigger.

In the Ruin Roundup, you are tasked with designing designing, outlining or otherwise creating one of the ruins in the Mega Man Legends universe; the mysterious underground labyrinths that teem with Reaverbots but promise the treasure of refractors and ancient technology.

This is definitely a complex task, and one that requires a bit of imagination I'd say. There are so many elements to consider! IMO, it's not enough to think of a stage with neat gimmicks; you really have to think of what significance such a place would have had to the ancients. Was it an ancient city, or a factory, or a control system for something else? What kind of elements and hazards would that create? How would the diggers exploring it now interpret it all? It's these kind of wonderings that, among other things, keep the interest in Legends so strong.

Of course, there are great prizes to be had for winning, with the top award being a Mega Man Legends 3 Project poster signed by Inafune himself! You may also snag a MegaMan Volnutt T-shirt, or a custom notebook featuring the winning ruin.

The contest is currently underway, and the deadline is July 1st, Sunday, at 11:59 PM EST. If you fancy yourself a maker of mysteries, give it a shot! You can see the discussion thread here, and submit your entry here. Good luck to you, and keep on supporting! When it comes to Mega Man, the fans never hold back!
