Outcast Odyssey

Your Art In The Game!

Create a new Steampunk Warrior, Witch/Warlock, or Dragon/Monster that belongs in the adventurous fantasy world of Outcast Odyssey.

Three grand-prize winners will work with the Outcast Odyssey creative team to bring their portrait or illustration to life as a limited edition trading card available within the game! Outcast Odyssey has already worked with deviants to create art for the game - chuck-piresart and yigitkoroglu have each created beautiful pieces featured in the world of Outcast Odyssey. Will you be next?

What is
outcast odyssey?

Do you have what it takes to become a legend?

Outcast Odyssey is a visually stunning, action-packed card battler game for your mobile devices.


Uncover monsters, lost dungeons, and frequent rewards as you explore the floating islands of Outcast Odyssey. What treasures and trouble will you find on your journies?


Fight in epic battles using the explosive power of your cards and your strategic mastermind! You'll be able to take on monsters through the in-game storyline, challenge players in the PvP arena, and link up to test your skills against your friends!


Collect hundreds of monsters and their evolutions, hand-drawn by some of the top artists in the industry (including some of our very own deviants)! Watch your power grow as your creatures and skills evolve!

Are You the next

Hi I put links in the comments to my entrys but didn't know to put it in the group. Does this mean I can't be in the contest? I'm new and didn't know, but I put a lot of effort and time into these. Please tell me I can still enter.

If you followed the directions and hit the ENTER button on the contest info up top here, it would have automatically selected the proper folders for you.
Whenever DA hosts a contest they always provide a quick link like that.
Entry date has long passed though, for several days now so either way I think you were a bit late dear.

And for a quick future reference, when you want to find a contest folder manually when you submit something, you select CONTESTS, the year of the contest and then the contest name. Only certain contests hosted by DA will be listed as selectable choices.

So... much... stress... I was too afraid to add my submission to any groups in fear of it potentially invalidating my entry, so I have no idea how well I did, as my entry is maybe 2700th in line 8(
