We’re very excited to announce details of a create-your-own “Revolution Mashup” video competition as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations.
We are offering a number of fabulous prizes and invite the wonderful and talented members of our community to create their very own stop-motion papercraft movie showing what might happen if characters from different Revolution games were to meet. Whether it’s bringing George and Nico into the world of In Cold Blood, or Robert Foster to “Paris in the Fall…” the only limits are the stories their imagination can conjure. And the 4 minute maximum video length we’re stipulating.
If you’d like to take part, all the assets you will need – from locations to characters – are now available to download here https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4s4hkqk479pzjio/AAAVgGOoSPJlInBiOo_K5Kfta?dl=0. Just cut out the characters and locations that you want to feature in your masterpiece, stick them all together, and you will have everything you need to create your own adventures across the Revolution universe. The first prize is a massive 6′ * 4′ print of the Gnostic fresco that appeared in Broken Sword 5 – the Serpent’s Curse, perfect to adorn your very own medieval chapel walls. Additionally we will send a T-shirt, and a 16 Gig Broken Sword memory stick to the winner and two runners up.
The competition will close 30th March. The Revolution team will then gather together to watch them all and vote. We will announce the winners on 1st April and send links in an update.
