Konami's New Contest Will Kill You

By Matthew Jay

January 26, 2011

On their Facebook page today Konami announced the “Be Buried in Silent Hill” contest. You (yes you!) can have your art featured on a headstone in the upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour (DP).

Fans can submit concept art for burial sculptures to be featured in the game. Six finalists will be chosen and whittled down to three winners through a vote on Facebook.

Take it seriously, though, as Konami is not looking for fan art or references to past games in the series. I, for one, will spend most of my time until the end of the contest submitting entries with hilarious names. Here’s a short list of what I have so far:

  • Seymour Butts
  • Pat McGroin
  • Dr. Dick Weiner
  • Bobby Kotick
  • Allen Park
