InXile Entertainment has announced a partnership with Unity on an experiment to create "crowdsourced" art for the company's upcoming post-apocalyptic RPG, Wasteland 2. InXile has released a batch of concept art pieces as part of a weekly feature, and is asking those interested to create 3D models of the images and submit them to the Unity Asset Store. Artists whose submissions are picked will be paid for their work and included in the game's credits.

Get your 3D model in Wasteland 2 and make money in the process! Each week on this page, we will be putting up concept art to be turned into 3D models for our game. By opening up the creative procedure behind our art asset creation, we are able to work with you to increase the overall game experience for everyone. This experiment allows us to focus our internal team onto elements that directly impact the gameplay of Wasteland 2.

Check out the link below to learn more and check out the concept art.

A revolution! Artists, creatives, and technical talent working on spec! :D

Oh, wait... that’s more degrading than revolutionary. Here, everybody, use your skills... We’ll pay you with lottery tickets! Yay! Your time is worth nothing, but OUR time is now freed up!

Could work for programmers too: everyone takes the code and fixes as many bugs as possible. The one who fixes the most bugs the best gets paid—AND their name in the fine print!

Well, not quite.  Even if they don't use the model, it's available for sale in the asset store so you can still make money off it.

I was in the asset store recently and bought a nice comfy chair.

I agree with nagromme.  You get an asset in the asset store out of this, but it'll still be an asset for Wasteland 2.

This is bound to produce a load of similar-looking models.  Won't it be strange to be selling a model that looks like one from a published game?  It seems like the rights would be hairy, too.
