Vector Unit, the development team behind one of this year’s greatest Summer of Arcade games ‘Hydro Thunder Hurricane’, are running a competition where you can have your own custom designed boat skin featured in the upcoming DLC content containing new tracks, new boats, and new skins.
Taken from the developers blog:
Want to make your mark on video games? Now’s your chance! Enter the Hydro Thunder Hurricane Design-A-Skin Video Contest and win a chance to design a new boat skin for your favorite boat and a free copy of the upcoming DLC pack, containing new tracks, new boats, and new skins (including yours!)
No art skills required — just tell us what you want the skin to look like and we’ll make it. A wooden Rad Hazard? Done. Damn the Torpedoes with dancing cartoon rabbits? No problem. Banshee with a…um…screaming banshee? Sure. And hey, if you do have a burning desire to express your inner artist, you can send us an image and we’ll use that.
To get involved all you have to do is make a video of yourself yelling “HYDROOO THUNDERRR HURRICANNEEE!” and telling the developers which boat is your favorite and what skin you think would be awesome for it. Your skin idea has to work with the E for Everyone ESRB rating and entries which are offensive, or which violate trademarks, such as content from other games will be disqualified. Your entry must be uploaded to Youtube and then emailed to Vector Unit.
The competition closes 9am Pacific Time, Monday, August 23, 2010.
