BIG PIXEL STUDIOS ANNOUNCE MEOW MEOW HAPPY FIGHT DESIGN A CHARACTER CONTEST

For immediate release: August 24, 2010

London, UK - Indie games developer Big Pixel Studios have recently updated their Japanese style dual-stick shooter title for iOS, Meow Meow Happy Fight. With the addition of 6 new levels, 3 new playable characters, and a wealth of new power-ups and achievements, this already feature packed shooter has now even more content to keep you coming back for more.

In addition to the content update, Big Pixel Studios have announced a“Design a Character” contest, allowing users to design their own unique character to feature in a future update to the game.

“We’ve listened to the fans, and we want to give them the chance to influence additional content added to the game,” said Paul Virapen, Big Pixel Studios Managing Director.“And the great thing about the contest is you don’t need any design skills to take part, it’s the idea behind the character which matters the most.”

If you think you’ve got a great idea for a character who could play alongside the likes of Noodle Cup and The Vendor, follow the instructions below:

Come up with a new character for Meow Meow Happy Fight (the weirder the better!)

Write a short back-story for your character (see www.meowmeowhappyfight.com for examples)

Draw a sketch of your character (not essential)

Email your entry to happycat@bigpixelstudios.co.uk

The winner’s character will be drawn and animated (Meow Meow style!) by the Big Pixel Studios team, and added to a future update of Meow Meow Happy Fight for iOS. The winner and 3 runners up will also receive a $10 iTunes Gift Certificate (or similar if not in the USA). Closing date is Friday 3rd September.
