Journal Entry: Thu May 9, 2013, 12:44 PM
Word's on the street there is a game coming. But it's not just another game - a pretty big one. It's safe to presume it's gonna be awsome - it gotta be, knowin' lots of money has been put into it.
Besides that, not much is known. Is it going to be first person shooter? An action game, with lots of ass whoopin'? Nobody can tell for sure. There is ONE thing, however, that we know about the protagonist. It's a female.
You go from there. The task is quite simple: describe what you think that game would be. Be as vague or as detailed as you like - just make sure the concept is appealing and that you would play such a game if it was out there.
You CAN draw your entry but it's not necessary. It's meant to be a small thing (for now), so words will be just enough.
To sum up:
Write (or draw) about a game with a female protagonist. Much preffered not objectified, strong characters. Awesomeness is mandatory.
Winner(s) get a free commission from me. The amount of winners is unlimited - I'll choose them as I see fit.
Feature goes without saying.
1st of June, any time zone.
How to submit entry:
Simply put it in a comment below. Write "ENTRY" in capital letters at the beginning so I know it's related. You may also link to your entry.
You may submit as many entries as you like, however - you may claim only one reward.
Important: entry must be your original idea and your own work.
Inspiration for this contest was a fact that there are very few games with female protagonist, much less should they be NOT sexualized. Off the top of my head I can list Tomb Raider (in which Lara got full pants only recently), Mirror's Edge and Bayonetta - which is about latex-clad lady kickin' ass. So much for not objectifying. Like, come on! Gimme ONE female badass with no boob window. As far as mmorpg go... But we're getting off track here. What I want is a game with a strong female protagonist who needn't shake her ass and tits to be awesome. I know you have it in you. Go!
Discussion is much encouraged, so if you have a thought to share on the subject, suit yourself.
