Planet Coaster fans have a chance to win a bag of goodies themed around the game in a Chinese New Year "Year of the Dog" contest announced by the developers on the game's Steam Community page.

If you're a fan of theme park simulators, Planet Coaster is perhaps one of the best modern titles on the market right now. The game has been out for just over a year now and received quite a few content updates since its release (along with the occasional bits of paid DLC). Now the developers have announced a contest for the Chinese New Year centered around the theme of the Year of the Dog.

The contest has three distinct categories, each of which will have its own winner:

  • A dog made from the game's scenery pieces
  • A shop or ride skin themed around dogs
  • A blank park themed around dogs made using only the water & terrain tools and brushes.
To enter the contest, players must submit their entry to along with the subject line "Chinese New Year Competition". Each submission must be for one of the three above categories. The deadline for the contest is Friday, March 2, 2018 at 6:00 PM GMT (that's 1:00 PM Eastern Time). As is usual with these sorts of contests, Frontier Developments reserves the right to disqualify submissions for any reasons.

Winners in each of the three categories will receive a goodie bag filled with Planet Coaster merchandise. In addition, their creations will be shown off in a community livestream. Be sure to read the announcement in full for all of the details!

If you don't already own Planet Coaster, now's as good a time as any to buy it on Steam - it's currently on sale for 75% off of its retail price. Check out our review of the game to see what we thought of it!
