Anyone can send in a photo (as long as it's their own). Major characters require the same face from many different views (front, side, half front-side etc.). All photos will be used, but the more views you send, the higher your chance of landing a major part. The artist will choose the most appropriate face for each part. The artist's decision is final.
Remaining images will be used for creating crowd scenes. Full terms and conditions, and examples of people who feature in pevious games, are at http://enterthestory.com/auditions.html

ABOUT THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO
The Count of Monte Cristo is arguably the world's greatest adventure novel. The story follows Edmund Dantes as he is unjustly condemned to life imprisonment, escapes, and returns to seek his revenge.
This adventure game has no connection with the hidden object game of the same name.

ABOUT ENTER THE STORY
Enter The Story is a thirty year project to convert one hundred of the world's greatest classics into adventure games. This will eventually include all thirty seven of Shakespeare's plays. All the stories join up to make the world's biggest point and click adventure. Planning began in 1997, and the game currently has four stories and one in development. By
2011 a new story will be released every three months. Players can vote on the next story to adapt, and can send in their photos and have their likenesses used for characters in the game. All profits from the game go to research solutions to global poverty.
