Stoic Unfurls Creating The Banner Contest
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Stoic and publisher Versus Evil have announced an art contest for fans of the viking themed The Banner Saga. The Creating the Banner contest gives artistic gamers the chance to create a real life banner based on the traditional Viking runic art style seen on Godstones in the game. Winners will have their design featured on a final life-sized banner and will receive a mini replica of their own.
“The Banner Saga has been applauded by reviewers and fans alike for the art style, something we are incredibly proud of. We’ve seen such great fan art for the game that it made sense to ask our fans to assist us in designing a real life banner. We are looking for designs based on the traditional Viking runic art style as seen on the Godstones in the game,” said Stoic’s Art Director Arnie Jorgensen. “One way of recording history in early Viking times was for each family to contribute (sew) their own ‘saga’ onto their clan’s banner. Similarly, we plan to include some of the best designs submitted in this contest to create a twelve foot banner depicting our fan’s experiences with the game, creating a community ‘saga’.”Head over to the links below for more information.
