August Hammer of the Month | Gamescom Edition!
Sledgehammer Games is in Cologne, Germany this week for Gamescom 2011! We’re looking forward to meeting everyone here while showcasing MW3 at the Activision booth. For the first time, fans will get some hands-on time with the all new Spec Ops Survival in never before seen locations, and some exciting new announcements that gamers have been asking for.
Throughout the week, we’ll be updating our webpage with a daily recap of events including stories and pictures from Co-founders Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey as well as Community Manager Guy Beahm. Also included in these daily recaps are key steps to winning the August Hammer of the Month contest!
So without further ado, let’s introduce the contest:
At the end of each Gamescom daily recap, there will be a random picture. Consider that picture just a small piece to the bigger puzzle. There will be five random pictures total with the last one being on Friday of this week. We're asking you to put these five pieces together to reveal one big picture. The first successful picture submitted to email@example.com becomes the August Hammer of the Month!
Winner receives the infamous Tool Box of Chaos! What’s in the box you ask? You’ll have to wait and see…
So make sure you’re following us on Twitter to stay up to date on everything Sledgehammer Games including our daily recap of Gamescom all week.

In July’s Hammer of the Month contest, we asked for epic Sledgehammer Games/MW3 themed pictures from our fans. We wanted it to be a photo that represented Sledgehammer Games in the most interesting way.
We received a lot of great submissions. Some serious. Some funny. Some just plain wacky. Yup, these are our proud fans and you are all winners in our book! Unfortunately we can only choose one winner to receive the HotM title.
So without further ado, July’s Hammer of the Month contest winner is…
You’ve just won a signed signed MW3 poster from the development team at Sledgehammer Games! Hang it with pride!
Thanks to everyone who participated. Here were some notable runner ups:

Hard to believe it's been two years since we formed Sledgehammer Games. Since then, some of the most passionate and talented developers I have ever worked with have taken a chance with us. It means so much to Michael and I to have such a dedicated group to work with. It didn't take long for Activision to realize the talent here and offer us the opportunity of a lifetime - working with Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 3. For that we are extremely appreciative.
We have so many people to thank, but none more than our families and friends who support us no matter what. You allow us to follow our dreams and turn our passion into a career. You are there for us and your patience during the final months of a game is what helps make a good game great. We are eternally thankful.
It's been an amazing 24 months for Sledgehammer Games, but we're just getting started. We make games for a living and we work for a great company that has given us opportunities we could only dream of. Today we are laser focused on MW3 and delivering the best game of our lives for the millions of fans who have embraced us.
The sky is the limit for this talented team. I know I speak for Michael when I say we are two of the luckiest guys in the game industry.
