The Haunted wins grand prize in second Make Something Unreal mod contest

It's been a long time since the contest started but this week Epic Games finally revealed the grand prize winners in their second Make Something Unreal mod contest. Using Unreal Tournament 3 as its basis, mod makers created games for the ultimate prize of $50,000 and more importantly a full Unreal Engine 3 license which would allow the mod team to release a full commercial game.

The grand prize winner turned out to be The Haunted, an impressive third person survival horror-style shooter. You can bet that a full stand alone version is in the works. Indeed many of the runners-up for the contest have already released stand alone demos via the Unreal Development Kit. You can check out the list of winners after the jump:
