Update: Since the responses to this have been so great, we've decided to extend the contest a day until 11:59PM PST on Wednesday, and add a little something to it. Not only will the Shackstaff pick their favorite five, but all the results will be posted to the InstantAction web site for additional public voting. The top five of those who haven't already won beta access will also receive keys. Those who win beta access are guaranteed at least two weeks of exclusive play before public access opens up.
Original Story: Ever play a game so much, that you start to see elements of it in real life? Your stoplight exchanged for Chu-Chu Rocket direction blocks? Disgaea style path trails leading to where ever you walk? Do you catch glimpses of Scouts in the corner of your vision, bat at ready?
Well, for once we will confront this phenomena directly, and jump to the conclusion of mixing real life and game elements. Thus, our next contest with GarageGames and Shacknews.
What we would like you to do is to take the art in the gallery above--so kindly provided by Fallen Empire: Legions developer GarageGames--and photoshop it into real-world events, specifically the news. Frame the picture with a more humorously accurate headline.
For PNG versions of the assets, here are the backgrounds (1,2) and characters (1,2,3)
We have five (5!) keys to the closed beta of Fallen Empire up for grabs, to be awarded for the five best photoshopping efforts. You have until Tuesday night 11:59PM CST to produce something and post it in the comments to this article. Good luck!
