Mission Against Terror Holds Character Design Contest

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

TORONTO, ON December 2, 2010—Mission Against Terror (M.A.T.), everyone's favorite free-to-play shooter from Wicked Interactive, is at it again. Just when you thought you had them figured out, they go and do the last thing you'd expect. This time, it's a Character Creation Contest in which gamers are asked to put down their virtual weapons in exchange for their favorite design tool. The stakes are nothing less than the once-in-a-lifetime chance to have your character included in M.A.T. as well as win a brand-new pair of Nox headphones.

"Keeping things interesting, always being fresh, being new, that's what M.A.T. is all about," said Sam Ho, Director, Wicked Interactive. "Since we launched back in September, we have been working hard to make sure that the game remains an exciting experience for everyone. With this contest, we take things to the next level once again to engage gamers creatively so they are inspired in new ways."

How It Works:

The premise is simple, draw(or model in 3D) on paper or on your computer a character.  Draw the front view, the back view and the side view, exactly how you envision this character to be.  The clothes they’re wearing, their facial features, everything!  If your design is chosen, your design will be modeled by a studio and put into production as a suit that people can buy and wear in Mission Against Terror.  You can put your name on the clothes, it’s totally up to you!

There are three major rules:

#1, no copyright infringement. Watch those logos! 

#2, no copying someone else’s work Whether it’s a sketch or a 3D model, it must be done by you! 

#3, keep it clean, with a PG13 audience in mind.

Will you be the next hot fashion designer?  Will you be the innovator in the latest military uniform design?  Put on your creative cap and start creating your dream character!
