CONTEST: Name Trophies in New 'n' Tasty, Win Ridiculous Prizes
Hello, creative Inhabitants!
When we wanted to make New ‘n’ Tasty, we didn’t do it because some Glukkon deemed it the next big moolah-maker. We did it because you all gathered round, chanted a bit, and pointed straight at Abe’s weird ol’ mug and said, “That’s what we want as the next game!”
And next Abe was. (And there was much rejoicing.)
And then! And then we asked, “So you guys want Stitch Lips and RuptureFarms… but what the heck do you wanna call this thing?” And you guys clicked on your interwebnet devices and voted. And so, New ‘n’ Tasty had its name.
But our questions were not all answered, Inhabitants – our journey isn’t over.
So: trophies. They come in all shapes and sizes and metals and flav- colors. And names. What should we be naming our trophies? It’s not as easy as you’d think. And that’s where you come in.
Whilst we’ve been busy naming and building, we’ve left five trophies to be named specifically by you guys. Awesome? Yeah, we think so, too.
HOW IT WORKS:
Over the next week, we’ll be taking submissions for the trophy names. Submit as many or few ideas as your Earth-human brain can think of for as many trophies as you’d like. Make sure to include which trophy/trophies you’re submitting for – otherwise we can’t count the submissions since we won’t know what you’re naming.
The submission deadline is next Wednesday (Feb. 5th), 11:59PM EST.
The next day (Thursday), we’ll announce five finalists for each trophy, selected by the Oddworld staff. From those finalists, you all get to vote once in each category, with a further deadline for that to be announced later.
One winner for each trophy will then be announced on Friday, February 14th. It’s just another way of us showing our love for you.
TROPHIES TO BE NAMED:
- Kill a Boombat with a rock
- Escape from RuptureFarms without Abe being spotted by any Slig
- Have Abe die in 15 unique ways
- Kill Sligs in 15 unique ways
- Finish the game with the Good Ending faster than our best developer time
As an example, you may wish to name the first trophy “BOOMBAT BASHER”.
Winners: Along with having the trophy hold your brilliant title, the winner of each trophy title will win:
- A New ‘n’ Tasty poster signed by the company
- Their name in the game credits
- A free Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty code for the PlayStation platform of their choice*
Runner-ups: If you’re one of the runner-ups, you’re not leaving empty-handed! Okay, technically you are. But that’s because game codes are digital these days, so what are you gonna do about it. You guys will each win a free Oddboxx code for PlayStation, which will net you the first four Oddworld games.
So, that’s it! Get those neurons sparking and emails blasting. All submissions must go to Abe’s trustworthy tea-buddy, Alf (firstname.lastname@example.org). No use in sucking up to him, he’s heard it all before down at Alf’s Rehab and Tea.
*Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty codes will be distributed out when the game is released. And before you can ask: No, we still haven’t finalized our release date.
