Help Advertise Tierkreis!

Postby KoRnholio » Fri Mar 13, 2009 3:04 pm

Suikosource is pleased to announce a Tierkreis advertisement contest. Contestants are to create any kind of advertisement for the upcoming Nintendo DS title, Suikoden Tierkreis. The series is still a niche, and we want to change that.

The format? Anything. I got this idea from a popular thread at the boards at NeoGAF.com, which had forum members creating one-page magazine ads for games. If you have brilliant Photoshop skills, great. Make a magazine ad. What if you don't? Maybe you're a good writer. Write a short essay convincing someone to take a dip into the Suikoden series. Always wanted to create a Suikoden box art and think you can do better than the current Tierkreis box art? Make one. You can pick anything that you think is going to sell Suikoden to someone who's never heard of it before. I think there's a large amount of creativity in the Suikoden community, and we can use it to increase Suikoden's visibility on the internet.

There will be Suikoden prizes. I'm not exactly sure what yet, but it will be something.

Deadline? I think two weeks will work out well. March 27 it is.

Where to post it? Post it on whatever forum you read this post on. Just as a reply to this topic. We'll check each topic we make for submissions. If its in a format that is hard to just post on a forum (audio / video), email me at [email protected] and we will work something out.

Good luck!

Can you ask Konami to provide you with a FanKit that can be used in creating some advertising material? I cannot imaging creating ads without character artworks, backgrounds, logos, etc..

Not to throw in a shameless plug, but:

You can get some mugshots from the game there, or even some of the artwork used in the game.

That should help a few people.

I've ripped (screenshotted) some Tierkreis character art from the main site here:

http://www.suikosource.com/kornholio/tierkreis

I will ask and see if I can get any more varied / higher resolution art as well.

Here's a simple concept I drew up for an ad. Its not polished, because I don't have image editing skillz. But if someone wants to fix it up, by all means, do so.

Sounds like fun.

(Alternately: http://img55.imageshack.us/img55/3835/t ... dpaper.png , for that "crummy photoshop simulated 2-page spread" kind of look.)

...somehow, that turned out nothing at all like what I imagined when I started. <_<

Dang, this is addictive. I should be playing the game, not messing with photoshop.

First page: http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/1441/footstepsad1.jpg
Then turn the page for: http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/6618 ... epsad2.jpg

(...on second thought, I should probably have hunted down a different font for "Destiny", but... meh, effort. :|)

This is probably the one that's closest to an ad that's actually supposed to sell the game so far.


[edit] Out of curiousity - where else has this been posted? I'd like to go check out other people's entries too.

Not final, but something along the lines of this

Keeping it simple is key :wink:

Keeping it simple meaning writing some words on an image that Konami already made?
