Become A Video Game Character For A Year

from the now,-there's-a-job... dept

Brought to you by the company that earlier this year wanted to put video game advertising on tombstones in graveyards, is a new marketing gimmick to get people to change their identity into that of a video game character. The company says these people will be "walking billboards" for the game for one year. They're not just changing their names, they need to change their entire identities to be like the characters. In doing so they'll get a video game system, all the games they want, and a whopping total of about $800.

    Becoming a game character for a year

    That would totally rock, my face is highly animated already so that wouldn't be a stretch. I am an artist, and a student at the Art Institute working on my bachelors in Game Art and Design, and this would definately be an honor.

    Rock on,
