Climber 5 Label Contest - Winner Selected!

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, this is Jason =)

 

First a funny little story.

 

I click on my friend's page at LiveJournal.com and see the following entry:

 

"Congrats gamerave!" with a link option.

 

I was like, huh?

 

And then I saw the link, and about pee'd myself with glee. This was one hell of a contest, and to be honest, I have never won anything before in my whole life. No envelope art contests, no create-a-character contests...nothing. So you can imagine how overjoyed I am at winning this one. =) I have always wanted to have my name on something in the gaming industry besides a fan-zone and web-site...and now I got my wish.

 

I want to say that I can't imagine how much stress Dennis was under, nor would I want to. When I saw the first few entries, I almost didn't enter. There are some seriously talented people in these forums and you should all be proud of yourselves. I collect for damn near every system, and the Atari Age forums defintely have some of the best fun loving fans around.

 

And if it helps, I've ALWAYS wanted to do a label like that, where the picture doesn't conform to the mold. Some of my favorite games were chosen not for the game itself, but for the killer artwork style. I have always wanted a sort of anime look on an old school game. And yes, I rebuilt the 2600 label from scratch in photoshop. Nothing like taking a virtual eye dropper over pixels to make sure you get it right.

 

Here's hoping it's a best seller Dennis!

 

I can NOT wait till the next contest comes up. Here's to everyone having a great time climbing for their balls (rimshot).

Congrats, Jason! Nice work!

Y'know what would be cool... is if you could do a comic that could be included with the game. Either as a separate item or as part of the manual. (Assuming, of course, Dennis would be willing to go along with it.) That would be a nice little throw-back to some of the Atari games that included comic books with them. :)

Congratulations Jason :!:

 

I'm sorry I hadn't been posting to this thread much. You're label was top notch. I hope you enjoy the game once it's done.

 

I also checked out your comic. I love it. You are one talented individual.

Sweet site Jason, funny comic to boot. Don't be surprised if you start getting a lot more hits really soon. ;)

Thanks guys! Votes of encouragement like that help out =)

 

Speaking of which, as soon as I get off my lazy butt I'm going to sit down with a friend, and with my artsy fartsy skills and his mad programming skills, see if we can make a good ol' homebrew.

 

I already have the subject matter planned...and it would be a tribute to one of the all time greatest multiplayer games ever!

 

And now that I think about it...I need to start working on this week's comic :D

 

(web-site updates thursday mornings :) )

 

Jason!
