Competition – Journey to The Dark Tower with Dendy Direct
We love a good story here at Player 2. Obviously, video games are our thing but books and movies also get plenty of love. One such story that gets a lot of love from the P2 crew is The Dark Tower by Stephen King. To celebrate The Dark Tower’s movie version getting a home release, Dendy Direct has given us 5 X $20 vouchers to give away to our readers. These vouchers can be used to purchase or rent movies and TV shows from the Dendy Direct service. For those that don’t know Dendy Direct is an off-shoot of the Dendy cinema chain and it is a great place to find documentaries, foreign language films, art house films, Australian productions and of course, the latest blockbusters.
So to win all you need to do is tell us in any way you want, which Stephen King story would make a great video game, in what genre and why. You can let us know via direct message on Facebook or Twitter, or you can email us here: (use the subject line Stephen King Comp). The entries will be judged by Player 2 Editor Matt Hewson and Player 2 writer (and Australia’s biggest Stephen King fan) Dylan Burns and will be judged on originality, humour and concept. The competition will end on the 29th of November 2017 at 5pm AEDST so don’t hesitate and get your answers in ASAP. Winners will be notified via their entry method. Sadly this competition is for Australian residents only.
To start you off here is an example of what an entry could look like from Dylan.
I’d have to say Stephen King’s IT. It could be structured episodically, a bit like Alan Wake, and you could play any of the Losers’ Club members in whichever order you choose. There’d be “shared” levels where you confront IT and each character has objectives to complete before they come together. There could also be mini-games where you look at photos and have to find incongruous elements that point to Pennywise’s supernatural involvement, a bit like the secrets in the Assassin’s Creed series.
So what are you waiting for, time to catch up on your Stephen King backlog and win a great prize in the process. Get cracking folks!
