Competition Reminder 23 Dec, 2008, 18:28 / 15 comments

There are only five days left until our competition to win the excellent Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts book is finished: so get your fake histories of LucasArts games to this address pronto, along with your name and e-mail, in order to be in with a chance to win that baby! And even if you don't win, we'll be publishing the best stories as part of our annual new years booze up feature.

Speaking of Rogue Leaders, ATMachine has already focused his eye of fire onto one aspect of the book, to wit, Monkey Island 2 originally had animated close-ups planned, a la SOMI and LOOM. Join in the discussion here.

Edit: The contest will close at midnight tonight (GMT) -- so just a few more hours to get those entries in!

Edit 2: The results are in, and a winnar has been chosen! See it here, along with a handful of very honourable mentions.

Thanks a lot to everyone who entered -- the standard was very high indeed -- to Chronicle Books for providing a copy of Rogue Leaders to give away, and for Spaff for kindly agreeing to judge the contest with me!

    (cough) Um, it's Rob Smith, not Rob "Red Dwarf" Grant who wrote the book.

    Congratulations to the winner by the way, truly awesome!

    Oh shut up.

    Woah thanks! I feel kinda bad for being the only one to actually not write a giant story :S

    Great stories!

    Don't feel too bad, yours was easily the best. It just goes to show that brevity is the soul of wit.

    Well done!

    And the pictures were pretty, too. Congratulations, Junaid! :)

    Now to find some Hollywood actors to stage that play...

    "Jack-Ass Victorian Bitch Opera" May just be the best phrase I hear all year. Also, Mojo needs to do more contests like this.

    Glad you liked it. :)

    We'll try to put another one together sometime in the new year.

    Great! I had a blast writing my story and it seems like everyone else did too. Congratulations to Junaid, that's some excellent artwork!
    Also, hi everybody. Finally decided to create an account. Merry Christmas.

    Didn't win, too bad.
    Well at last I made some people laugh again.
    Congratulations to the winner. I understand why they chose his entry over mine.
    Enjoy the book! :p

    Mine will probably be a bit late. I'm planning to get wrecked at the pub finish it around 1 when I get in.
  • Gabez on 24 Dec, 2008, 01:05…
    Sorry, you'll be too late to enter the contest, but please do e-mail me your drunken entry anyway, and I'll add it to the feature!
  • neon_git on 24 Dec, 2008, 01:41…
    I'm tanked up and putting the finishing touches to it now - it wouldn't have won but I'm enjoying writing it anyway :D

    Conrats to Junaid for such an epic entry. It's faultless.
  • Gabez on 24 Dec, 2008, 10:32…
    I've added your entry to the feature. Thanks for sending it in. :)

    That picture of yoda is pure nightmare fuel. It's like something out of those old "Scary Stories to tell in the Dark" books.
