THE "CAPTAIN N: PUT YOURSELF IN THE GAME" CONTEST!

I-Mockery's latest contest is in celebration of the release of Captain N on DVD. I've been waiting a long time for them to release this series on DVD, and other than them leaving out some episodes from the 3rd season due to legal reasons, the DVD set is great.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with "Captain N: The Game Master", you can look up some info on the series on Wikipedia. But to put it simply, back in the day it was the one cartoon that every NES fanboy absolutely HAD to watch every week. In the show, a teenager by the name of Kevin Keene is sucked into the world of video games "Videoland" to help some of your favorite good guy video game characters fight some of your favorite bad guy video game characters. Mother Brain, King Hippo, Kid Icarus, Eggplant Wizard, Dr. Wily, Ganon, Donkey Kong... they're all in it.

Well, for I-Mockery's latest contest, YOU get to become Captain N! That's right, I want each of you to take a photo of yourself and put yourself into a screenshot of any video game of your choice. Do your best to make it look like you're interacting with what's going on in the video game. Feel free to use any nifty controllers to help make your picture look all the better (example: the Nintendo Zapper, the Power Glove or whatever you have). You can choose any video game you like, new or old, just as long as you insert a photograph of yourself into it and make it look like you're interacting with the game somehow. Make yourself save the princess, make yourself getting slaughtered in a street brawl, it really doesn't matter... just have fun with it! One lucky winner will receive a brand new copy of the Captain N DVD set!

Since some of you probably aren't sure about what I mean when I say "insert yourself into a video game", I've worked up a quick example to show you what I'm talkin' about:



See? That's all there is to it. Just choose any game you like and add yourself into the action! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.


RULES:

-To participate, you must register an account on these forums (if you don't already have one) and post your entries in this thread.

Ok that's it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Good luck to all of you!

This contest ends 4/15/07.
