If you ever wanted your creations or images in a video game, you’ve got a chance with two new contests Capcom is running for their upcoming title Remember Me.
If you’re the creative type, you can design a billboard advertisement for inclusion in the game’s vibrant and futuristic world of Neo-Paris. Check out the contest on the game’s Facebook page, and you can check out five fictional companies, one of which you can design a billboard for that promotes that company in the game’s world.
The second contest, which started yesterday, October 25th, and runs through November 29th, you’ll get to come back down to the real world and submit images of your most cherished memories and a short written piece about why that particular moment is so important to you. Capcom will then choose images at random for inclusion in the game’s “Memory Overload” sequences, which pop up in game when the heroine, Nilin, completes a signature attack. Hang tight and check out the game’s main Facebook page for info on that contest.
Both of these actually sound really cool and unique. Outside of a few Kickstarter projects, it’s rare that publishers and developers will go the route of taking player-created content and integrating it into a game’s development. As if I wasn’t looking forward to Remember Me enough, having this content in there would make it even more interesting to see.
