Ever wanted to be in a video game? Not like TRON, but as a character? Well, now's your chance as Activision Publishing and Terminal Reality are working together to bring you the Dead Giveaway contest. The grand prize is a role in the upcoming video game The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.
To enter, you have to watch The Walking Dead on AMC every Sunday night at 9 PM, which is probably something you're already doing. Clues will be revealed during new episodes and you can enter them at AMCDead.com. Each week, one winner will be chosen to appear as a character in the game.
Terminal Reality will use photos of the winner's facial likeness to create a unique character for the game. Your backstory and death scene (sorry!) may be encountered by players throughout The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. Players looking to learn more can piece together the past of these characters, uncovering the scenes that led to the end of their lives in such horrific ways. Each contest winner will be hidden in a different level and there will be a special challenge that involves tracking down all of the winners. Every new episode until Sunday, December 2nd, 2012 has your chance to win a role in the game.
We've talked about The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct in the past but it looks like it's shaping up to be a helluva game. They sold me at the opportunity to play as Daryl Dixon but now you get the chance to actually be in the game, even though you'd be dead. Don't care. It's still cool.
What do you think of the Dead Giveaway? Have you entered yet?
