I don't know a whole lot about Red Wasp Design's iPad RPG Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land, but I know a cool contest when I see it. The game is sponsoring one of the most interesting gaming contests I've heard of in years.
To enter, gamers need to submit a review to the App Store or rewrite the text of an existing review of Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land in the style of H.P. Lovecraft. So all you literary types take note! You then email your neo-Lovecraft style writing to developers Red Wasp, and wait for the prize. Make sure you use the subject line “Review competition.”
The prize is amazing: An original 1936 copy of a pulp fiction magazine Astounding Stories which contains part H.P. Lovecraft’s seminal horror-novel At The Mountains of Madness. This is a truly one-of-a-kind item, and I personally will be working hard to make sure it is added to my personal collection. I suggest you do the same.
I have experience writing like Lovecraft, too. Just check out this Lovecraftian post I did during the early days of G4's The Feed. Red Wasp will feature the best entries on their site and pick the winner on Friday, March 9.
