EDIT: Here's a link to the humble bundle if you just want to buy it yourself!!!!!!!! http://www.humblebundle.com/weekly
So, with the Xbox One announcement came some news from Remedy Entertainment. For starters they’re working on a new game
called Quantum Break that ISN'T Alan Wake 2. On top of that bad news came a video from Sam Lake (creative lead at remedy; writer for Alan Wake and Max Payne 1+2) saying the series wasn't a big enough hit for Microsoft to fund a proper sequel, and that the series was being stored away for a while. And to celebrate the greatness of Alan Wake, he kicked off a huge sale for both the PC and 360 versions of the game.
To show my appreciation for this great studio and series, I have decided to give away 5 copies of the Alan Wake Humble Bundle to the Giant Bomb Community, in contest form.
Before I illustrate the contest requirements, rules, etc, I wanted to set up an honor system
1. Please don’t participate if you already have the game, unless you tell me you want to participate without actually entering the contest
2. Please don’t participate if you just want to trade the game away for personal gain
3. Have a genuine interest in playing the game.
4. Make sure you can actually run the game
Note: I’m obviously not going to enforce that list of rules; just know that if you go against the honor system, you’re a bad person who takes advantage of generosity. Please don’t be that guy.
Okay, here's what the contest is!
I want you to transport the Giant Bomb guys into the Psychological Thriller/Horror genre (the genre Alan Wake captures so well) in picture form
That might sound super broad at first, but I really want it to be so as many people are capable of participating
1. It's a picture (or gif, if you want to be adventurous)
2. It feature someone who works at giant bomb (Jeff, Ryan, Brad, Vinny, Patrick, Alex, Drew, Rorie, etc) as the pictures subject
3. It somehow features the Psychological Thriller/Horror genre. It could be using a famous movie/tv/game scene, a Thriller/Horror poster, playing on known motifs or cornerstones of the genre. Anything, as long as Psyco Thriller/Horror is an obvious part of the picture
4. You can create this picture however you wish. Whether it be a beautiful drawing, or a sloppy shop job on MS paint. I will look at and consider EVERY submission
4. YOU SUBMIT ON OR BEFORE THIS WEDNESDAY AT 2PM EST
5. Have fun!
The best 5 entries will win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What do I actually get if I win?
The Alan Wake Franchise Humble Bundle. Look here to see what that includes.
Also, it will be a gift copy of the whole humble bundle. How that works is Humble Bundle gives me a super secret URL that I can give to whomever I want (the URL containing the rights to the Bundle)
How will I know if I won?
I will announce the winners on this thread sometime after the contest ends. I will then PM the winners that they have won. I will also require the winners to reply back at me notifying they are willing/ready to receive the Bundle. Once I get that message, I will reply back with the URL (I'm doing this because I would feel weird leaving these URLS in an inbox for too long. Just trying to be safe)
Alright, that's it! Have at it!
