EDINBURGH, Scotland, June 27th 2012 - Scottish educational specialists Interface3 is inviting children of all ages to design a brand new character for upcoming learning title Cosmic Reactor, with the winner's entry becoming a fully-fledged playable alien in the full game.

Already boasting a cast of seven zany and unique aliens, Cosmic Reactor rates two players on their maths and vocabulary skills while also putting their reactions to the test in head-to-head contests. But with one alien getting lost in space and failing to make the line-up, there's a free space going for any particularly creative kids to fill with their own invention!

Entries of all kinds are welcome: drawings, paintings and iPad doodles are equally likely to be considered. The most creative, funny or interesting character design will be restyled by Interface3's lead artist, David Bell, and then go on to appear as a playable character. The winner will also receive a code for the game when it launches on the App Store in August, so they can play as their own character from day one!

Details for entering and all terms and conditions can be found on the Interface3 website, and the contest closes on the 8th of July. Cosmic Reactor is released on iOS and Android in the second half of August.
