Back in August 2006 I ran a competition - http://www.create-games.com/forum_post.asp?id=167313 - in which the participants were encouraged to create an advert for their game to appear on television by the combined use of game footage and anything else they could think of.

TV spots are noticably different to actual trailers that frequent the internet - and in the three years that have passed since this competition ran, new klikkers have joined the scene and have created some very stunning looking games that have been released or are in the pipeline.

So, this year I'm going to run the competition again! Create a video advert/spot promoting a game of yours and then upload it to YouTube. This is just a fun little competition that will also promote your game - there are no prizes or time limit (since I'm no longer a DC admin I cannot hand out points (only donate them, but I'm a tightwad).

One of the last top three entrants has disappeared from YouTube, but the other two (by Phizzy and David Clarke) are still there though:

Davids Entry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vy25-JF2Mqk
Phizzys Entry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0HmarbQP4I

Other adverts that you might want to take a look at for inspiration:

Super Mario Kart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzCsRN1qLlA
Super GameBoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DsLg1NAdo0
Sonic The Hedgehog: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3t3dxCZ5Do
Rayman Raving Rabids: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoH0qjrW-uI
GTA 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vcHFLo3ZOI
Wii Games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mftku6Eta-I
Animal Crossing DS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJN2mcfGZmw

There is no deadline (yet) - anyone interested in giving this competition a go again?

Yeah, I'd like to see this compo again (I missed the original one)

But there are too many compos at the same time

But I guess making an Ad for a game your making for another compo could work, like those working on the Hilarious compo could make an Ad for their entry.

P.S. I can donate points, I don't really use them. And a guy keeps donating me some.

There are a few competitions floating around, this is true, but not everyone is going to want to enter them. So I just added another one to give an extra option.

This is a fantastic idea. I will provide DC points as a prize if you'd like, though I don't know if you'll get many entrants what with AndyUK's compo, W3R3W00F's compo, and Black Jaguar's compo...

Are multiple entries allowed? Because I'm making a puzzle game, and I'd like to promote that, but Drill Bits is begging for an advert. (I could also make a cheesy 80's advert for Snatch, but I don't feel like running around in a monkey costume or renting offices to record in. Plus the whole "I don't have a camcorder" thing.)

Hey, Carnivorous id! This competition is calling your name!

Yup, this time around you can make one entry per game that you are working on - but not multiple entries for one game.

I have something new that I've been working on that I might want to use for this . I can't wait to post it, just need to finish up a few last things, and talk to some people. And wow, this is the prefect compo for what I was making. Its a survival horror and that's as far as I'll go (as I'm not exactly sure I should of said anything). I was already working on this before I saw this. But anyways, any deadline yet?

Any type of video is acceptable as long as it advertises your game and somewhat resembles a TV spot rather than an internet trailer - but all need to appear on YouTube.

I have decided on a closing date...

August 1st

So you've got a fair while yet and it might give you time to focus on other competitions floating around.

I'm tempted to enter this. I've been wanting a decent video editing project to sink my teeth into for a while now. Only thing is my current project I've been messing with has no graphics... Ah well, I'm sure I can come up with something!
