Nowhere Studios Invites Fans to Create Monochroma-inspired Videos

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ISTANBUL – August 5, 2013 – With 18 days left in the Monochroma Kickstarter campaign, Nowhere Studios is proud to announce a special contest aimed squarely at the game’s many fans: a video contest inspired by the deeply cinematic Monochroma universe – an alternate 1950s dystopia where technology enslaves thousands in a capitalist nightmare.

To date, Monochroma has secured $31,526 in pledges from 802 backers. The project needs to hit its funding goal of $80,000 by August 24 or development could be delayed indefinitely. However, if the funding goal is met, Monochroma will be released in December 2013 on Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms — followed by Ouya, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and Xbox One in 2014.

“This is it,” says Burak Tezateser, Executive Producer of Monochroma. “We are running out of time. We need everyone who believes that games can be more than formulaic blockbusters or overgrown amusement rides. Talk to your friends, co-workers, and family members. Help us change the industry with a game that puts gameplay, atmosphere, and storytelling above focus tests and price targets—and share your vision with us.”

To participate, fans must come up with a video of any length about Monochroma. It can be a Let’s Play, a new teaser, a music video, or even an experimental short set in the Monochroma universe. Once the video is complete, entrants should post it to YouTube with a link to the Kickstarter campaign ( http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/445804219/monochroma) and send an email to info@nowherestudios.com with the YouTube URL and contact information. Participants are free to use the game’s Main Theme by psychedelic folk band Gevende.

The deadline for entries is Thursday, August 22 at 10 a.m. Pacific.

Those still “on the fence” can download a 30-minute, fully-featured demo at http://www. Monochroma game.com/ Monochroma/redirectdownloaddemo.html. The demo runs on most Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs.
