If Advent Rising isn't your thing, maybe you'd rather be a zombie? Hip Games is offering a contest where gamers can become a zombie in George Romero's City of the Dead. Behold:
To enter and become a zombie in "City of the Dead", contestants are asked to submit one digital photograph with an angry facial expression. Those selected as finalists will be contacted to submit additional photographs with various facial expressions. Long hair should be tied back in a low ponytail and glasses should be removed.
The contest runs from June 8th - June 20th and players should enter their pictures at www.gamespot.com/promos/2005/hipzombie.
Three winners will be selected on June 22 and in addition to becoming zombies they will receive receive a credit in the instruction book and a free copy of the game when it ships next year. The winners will be announced on GameSpot Live on June 27.
So good luck to all in both contests, now if you'll excuse me, I have to put on my mean face.
