OGPlanet Celebrates Rumble Fighter Anniversary With Two Fan Contests

El Segundo, Calif.- Jul 23, 2008 Multiplayer online gaming company OGPlanet today announced two upcoming contests to celebrate the first anniversary of its popular free-to-play online fighting game Rumble Fighter. The game celebrates its first birthday on Aug. 7, 2008. Both fan contests commence Wednesday, July 23, 2008.

Anniversary Cosplay Contest

Contest participants are invited to post photographs of themselves dressed up as their Rumble Fighter character to the OGPlanet MySpace page. Rumble Fighter's wide variety of costume options allows players to create their ideal fighter and the Cosplay Contest will allow players to show off their creations in a unique way. Ten winners will be chosen based on both accuracy and uniqueness of costume and will be granted a birthday wish for any one in-game item that is normally available for purchase. The Cosplay Contest runs through Aug. 12, 2008.

Anniversary Commercial Contest

Rumble Fighter fans will compete to make the best video commercial based on their favorite feature from the game's first year. Once they have made their video, players can post links to the videos for a chance to win a special limited-edition, short-term Birthday ExoCore that allows the player to transform during in-game battle with special abilities. The top 10 videos selected by OGPlanet will receive the limited edition prize. The Commercial Contest will run through Aug. 5, 2008.
