    The craziest (bear) ragdoll destruction game ever wants to become outrageous! Would you like to see your creation getting blown into millions of pieces, over and over again in slow motion?

    Then design a character to iDrop Dead, and post it here or send it to us via email (ville.helin at gmail.com)! Three best entries will make it to the game. And no John Gores, please. James Snore will be ok, as long as it's your own, original work!

    Rules:

    * You need to own the rights to the character, be its creator, and can give the rights to us to use it in our Drop Dead games, free of charge.
    * Post your character here, along with its name, or send it to us via email (ville.helin at gmail.com).
    * Read the instructions from the template image, we need two heads, a hand and a leg and body color (or your custom body).
    * Keep the background of the PNG file transparent (so PNG submissions only).
    * UPDATED 26-Aug-2009: You can submit as many entries you want, but you can win only one prize.
    * We'll (me and Jyri) choose the winners.
    * UPDATED 07-Sep-2009: Deadline is Monday, 7th of September 2009, 23:00 Finnish time (GMT+3). Here's the clock: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/time-zone/europe/european-union/finland/time.htm

    Prizes:

    1st prize: Three Drop Dead t-shirts and promo codes to all our iPhone games (Perfect Balance: Inferno & Harmony and iDrop Dead).
    2nd prize: Two Drop Dead t-shirts and also those three iPhone games.
    3rd prize: One Drop Dead t-shirt and the three games again.

    We'll also give away 20 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:

    ... or visit our homepage:

    http://www.ttursas.com

    Good luck!!!

    QUICK NOTE! The head rectangle must be at least 100x100, but can also be larger. You could also make a box head that's like 100x200 in size, if you want to make the head a big rectangle. ;) Also, if you come up with a totally different design, feel free to submit it. As long as the character would work in iDrop Dead, so please no characters with 30 body parts. Keep it simple! ;) If you follow the instructions to the letter you'll be able to create a working character, but once again, you can improvise!

    Oh, and I just updated the rules, so you don't need to follow the instructions to the letter if you want to improvise a little. :)

    If you come up with a super great idea it might be better to email it to us so others cannot copy it. ;) Or just submit on the last minute.

    But running this competition is really fun! ;) I can't wait to see what kind of creatures you guys want to see explode!

    Damn Chris I'm gonna have to step up my game!

    ttursas, is there any room for custom blood sprites or is it strictly the color particles you have currently?
