The lights are on
UPDATE: It was a long, hard decision-making process, but the 20 winners of the Sonic 4 on XBLA contest have been finalized.
The lucky artists who drew winning pictures of the worst Sonic game imaginable have been sent their codes for the games. However, I'd like to share with you the top four submissions. These are the entries that tickled us the most, so we hope they tickle you too:
Congratulations to the winners, and thanks for entering the contest!
ORIGINAL STORY: We have a whole bunch of codes to give away for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 on Xbox 360. One of these 20 codes could be yours, but it comes at the cost of your artistic talents.
My appreciation of Sonic is no secret. However, my busy schedule of playing games and drinking sodas leaves me with very little time to draw beautiful portraits of my beloved mascot. If I did have time, I would spend it drawing pictures of Sonic. That's where you come in.
With the release of Sonic 4 and Sonic Colors DS, Sonic has begun to move away from his lineage of terrible games like Sonic Unleashed and Sonic the Hedgehog 2006. I want you to draw a screenshot or box art for the worst Sonic game imaginable and email it to email@example.com. Mind you, this is a fictional game that hasn't ever been released, so I want you to reach deep into the depths of your imagination and pluck out the worst idea Sonic Team could ever come up with. Even worse than the Werehog.
The top 20 drawings will be announced on Saturday, with the whole batch of blue-tinted art ending up in the media gallery below.
So what are you waiting for?
Email the author Tim Turi, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
I think I'll try this out. I heard good things about the game, and played the demo. It'd be nice to play through the whole thing. Sonic was one of my first games for the Genesis.
ooooh hope i can find time to do this, even if i dont get it turned in by saturday, im sending you one tim.
Ha Ha.. this should be easy. Just look to Sonic's old games for inspiration.
I'm sure anything that people draw would be more fun to play than Sonic's troubled previous games.
I wonder what the people will draw.
Lol, I already have a great (well at least I think it's great) idea. Can't wait to submit it!
just had to be for xbox.... *sigh*
Alright, got mine in. Good thing today is a slow day at work, otherwise I don't think I'd find the time for this haha.
Man, The UnderGarden was so fun to draw, I hope this is gonna be better!
Alright drawing submitted! I hope mine counts because even though I didn't draw really anything I did make it using Paint so I hope that counts. I like Sonic I just can't draw him well with his disproportional body. XD
Thanks for making the post family friendly by insinuating that you drink something besides beer when playing video games.
Just wanted to say I WAS gonna draw Sonic Curling but it turns out it already exists lol
well good thing im getting a ipod touch cause my mom said when i get a ipod touch i can get this
I remember the top picture (with the wrecking ball) from the SEGA I used to have.
