Late last week, independent game studio Stoic announced that they would be teaming up to launch a fan art contest based upon their beautifully stylized turn-based RPG The Banner Saga.
Creating The Banner is a unique fan art contest where artists can submit their original Viking-stylized designs for possible inclusion on both a life-sized twelve foot banner and a mini-replica of the same banner for display. Stoic Art Director Arnie Jorgensen described this contest as a great depiction of fans experiences within the game and a promising collaborative project for any and all Banner Saga supporters.
Submissions can be made anytime between now and Thursday March 13th. For a detailed overview of all the instructions, please visit www.creatingthebanner.com. The official launch trailer of the game is also embedded above to help get your creative juices flowing.
The Banner Saga can be purchased now on Steam for the retail price of $24.99. I had the pleasure of writing an in-depth Banner Saga Review earlier this month and am very excited to hear about this contest. If for any reason you have yet to experience this RPG for yourself, then I would highly suggest that you make this the next game on your playlist.
