Dress Like Hector and Win

posted by Alan Johnson on - last edited - Viewed by 805 users

As Hector would say, "listen up you coachpokers"! Do you aspire to become a slovenly, crass, yet somehow incredibly skilled officer of the law? Do you have the fashion sense of...ah, better yet, do you lack any fashion sense? Does your interior decorating resemble that of a derelict tenement? Also, are you creative? Well then, this contest is for you.

From now until 2:00 pm (Pacific Time) on Wednesday, May 11, get your most unkempt yet "professional-ish" outfit together (use Hector's garb in the photo above as inspiration if you like) and take a photo of yourself (or have a friend take it, that would be more ideal) in a setting suitable for a dirty detective (ie. a messy office, a boarded up building) and post it in the contest thread (in the Telltale Games Forum) (which you are already in). Once the entry period has ended (2:00 pm Pacific Time on 5/11/2011) I'll create a poll in this thread that includes all entrants and the contest voting period will begin, ending at 2:00 pm Pacific Time on Monday, May 16 - so get your votes in on time. At that time, the three entrants with the most votes will win. I'll announce them here and post the winning entries on the Telltale Games Blog later that day. (If you don't want me to post yours, I won't.)

You're probably wondering what you can win, am I right? Here's what:

A copy of Hector: Episode 1 - We Negotiate With Terrorists for PC/Mac (giftable)
A copy of Poker Night at the Inventory for PC/Mac (giftable)

There's no prize for being first so please take your time on your contest entry (one entry per person); you have plenty of time to sully up some clothes and find a fine location for your shoot. Get creative, use some lighting that matches the look of the game, re-create a scene from the game, go wild! What are you waiting for, get to work on your entry! Good luck!

    YOU MAY CALL ME MURRAY! THE DEMONIC DISEMBODIED TALKING SKULL! WHEN YOU CLAPPED YOUR EYES UPON ME, YOU LOOKED INTO THE FACE OF DOOM!

    My name's Tom, Andrei. Pleased to meet you (sort of).

  • Pleased to meet you (sort of), Tom! :D I love it when I meet cool talented people!

  • @Silverwolfpet said: Pleased to meet you (sort of), Tom! :D I love it when I meet cool talented people!

    Let me know when you meet one, won't you?

    I don't have much (if any) talent, truth be told. I'm a Metaller, computer game nerd, mathematician, philosopher, Grammar Nazi and IT professional wannabe (with the highlight of my career hopefully being a Tester for Telltale).

    You can sing, write, draw, animate, act and have a lot of charm. That's just what I've picked up. Oh and the ladies love you. I envy you in pretty much every way and tend to bask in your shadow.

  • Haha, thanks but your sensors may need a little tweaking :)
    I cannot sing, but I admit that is not stopping me for trying (and failing). My voice is just not good for what I want to sing.
    Writing...eh...tons of people write better than I do.
    Drawing? Hm... nope. I'm using programs. Free-hand drawing on real paper is worse than Picasso's little brother, Bobo. What? You've never heard of Bobo?! ...that's how bad my drawing is. :p
    Act? ...I just have fun in front of the camera. Dunno if I could do it if it were the real thing.
    Charm...hm... I do wash my hair from time to time...maybe that's when I have a bit of charm. Otherwise... :D
    Ladies love me?! Hahahaha! My last girlfriend hated everything I did on the artistic side. :p That's why we broke up. I'm really intrigued by this... show me da ladies!

    True, I never liked Metal, but I always wanted to have the patience of being a game nerd. This includes my struggle to play a D&D game at least once in this lifetime. I've got my eyes set on Mansion of Madness, but it's kind of expensive and I have no idea if I'll like it. Not to mention PC games of all sorts.
    I always sucked at math, I was never capable of remembering every single little tiny formula.
    My philosophy rarely helps me out in real life situations.
    I suck at grammar and my IT knowledge is limited to "never ever stick a screwdriver in your PC while it is running". Yes, I did that. All I remember is a blue light. Haha, no, really... that was stupid.

    So, in the most friendly way, the envy is mutual :p

    I like that we have such selfless people here, willing to remove their pants in the name of art and free games.

    I wish I could get more girls to do that in exchange for alcohol and/or my company.

  • Yesterday I "ran out" of girls. Two of my best actresses (well, I only had 2) announced that they will focus on University and such...so no more actresses for a while. Bummer.

  • I for one voted for the individual who can see who voted for whom so he doesn't hit me with a spoon for voting against him. (not that I think he ever would... I hope)

    Mods can't actually see who voted what on an anonymous poll. ;)

    And I'm sure Silverwolfpet would never hit you with a spoon... well not a big one anyway.

  • *hides spoon*

    Of course not! :D
