Ok guys, here's the second iDrop Dead competition, and again you have a chance of getting your creation into the craziest ragdoll game there is! Here's what you need to do: Draw a background image, or an object (e.g., a cannon) that fits into the given theme. The themes: * Water World (waterfalls, fountains, ...) * War (WW2 style, old) * ... or any of the current themes in the game v1.1.0 (classic Drop Dead, shake, fire, explosion and winter) Rules: * You need to own the rights to the competition entry, be its creator, and can give the rights to us to use it in our Drop Dead games, free of charge. * Post your work here or send it to us via email (ville.helin at gmail.com). * PNG submissions only. * Keep the background of the PNG file transparent if you submit an object, black outlines would be nice. * If you submit an object, also tell us how it works (if it needs animation, please draw the animation frames, too), and describe all special effects it requires to work. * If you submit a background image, it has to be of size 1024x1024. It doesn't need to be tileable as we just mirror the image using code, upside down and left to right. But keep it abstract if possible so that the mirroring trick will work. * You can submit as many entries you want, but you can win only one prize. * We'll (me and Jyri) choose the winners. * UPDATE (28-Sep-2009): Deadline is Monday, 5th of October 2009, 23:00 Finnish time (GMT+3). Here's the clock: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/europe/european-union/finland/time.htm Prizes (UPGRADED ON 14-Sep-2009): 1st prize: Three Drop Dead t-shirts + 16GB USB memory stick. 2nd prize: Two Drop Dead t-shirts + 8GB USB memory stick. 3rd prize: One Drop Dead t-shirt + 4GB USB memory stick. EDIT 03-Oct-2009: PS. As we still have lots of t-shirts left from the first contest, we'll be giving them out instead of printing new shirts with a different image. We are still on red with this project, need more time to collect more money for new t-shirts... If you still want t-shirt(s) with different image, then we can send you the shirt(s) later, when we print the next batch, if you can wait that long. PPS. The memory sticks come loaded with all Drop Dead music there is, released and unreleased, and some work-in-progress material! We'll also give away 5 iDrop Dead promo codes to random people who participate (with ok entries). Also the three winners will get their names into the credits screen of the game. NOTE! The promo codes will work only in the US App Store. ;( So if you live outside the USA, well, you are out of luck. Blame Apple. ;( For more information about iDrop Dead, check out the official iDrop Dead thread here @ TA: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=23123 ... or visit our homepage: http://www.ttursas.com Good luck, ladies and gentlemen! PPPS. We need to get v1.2.0 update out before the competition ends, to get access to those promo codes as we've run out of the old ones. Shouldn't be a problem as v1.2.0 was submitted to Apple earlier this week, but just in case everything goes wrong we might need extra time with them. I'll keep you updated on this as well. UPDATE 29-Sep-2009: As Apple rejected v1.2.0, and we now need to take away blood, skeletons and hit noises, we need more time with the promo codes.
