    TFW2005 has teamed up with Razer for and an awesome contest where you could win some amazing Transformers PC Gaming prizes! We will be giving away a selection of Razer's Dark of the Moon DeathAdder Ergonomic Gaming Mice and their Dark of the Moon Vespula Dual-Sided Gaming Mouse Mats. Don't know what we're taking about? Well check out Razer's Transformers: Dark of the Moon Collector's Edition Gaming Peripherals.

    Contest
    Create, draw or photoshop an image showing TFW2005 as a video game from any gaming era. You can alter photos, video game screen shots, create faux box art or create an image from scratch. Do you picture TFW2005 as an old school side scroller like Super Mario, or do you picture it as a fighting game? How about an Atari 2600 era game? It's your choice. The only criteria is that your submission must be clearly related to video games and be clearly related to TFW2005. That's it.

    Now remember, TFW2005 is a TRANSFORMERS website, so incorporating something Transformers related (like our very own mascot, BOOMBOX) into the image will likely earn you some extra consideration.

    FAQ

    Will update ad needed.

    Q. May I share my entry outide of this thread?
    A. Yes.

    Q. May I post a WIP thread on the forums?
    A. Yes

    Q. Can I collaborate with another member for my entry?
    A. No.

    Q. Do I get to choose the prize sent to me?
    A. No. Prizes are chosen at random.

    Q. Can my entry consist of more than 1 image?
    A. Yes, if you want to do, say, a front and back of a faux box, or multiple faux screen shots. That is fine, but it will only count as one entry.

    Q. I posted my entry, but I want to make changes or add to it, can I?
    A. No. Once you submit something here, that is the final entry. So make it count.

    Q. What type of image can I submit?
    A. 2D art, computer generated images, 3D art, photoshopped photos, photoshopped video game screen shots, etc.

    Q. Can staff members (mods, content contributors, photos staff, etc.) enter?
    A. No

    Q. I don't live in the U.S. Can I still enter?
    A. Yes.

    Q. Can I enter an animated image or a video?
    A. Yes.

    Q. Who's judging the entries?
    A. Upper level staff of TFW2005.

    Q. Hey, I found some awesome fan art, can I just use that?
    A. NO! If you want to use fan art, it must be your own.

    Q. Can I use officially released Transformers art?
    A. Yes, so long as you aren't simply slapping that one a box or something and expecting that to be your entry. It's a photoshopping contest, so go to town.

    Q. Does it have to be an 8-Bit or 16-Bit era style game?
    A. No. Any gaming era is allowed.

    Q. Can I use someone else's custom figure for my photoshop or entry?
    A. No

    Q. Can I use your Boombox art from the gallery?
    A. EDIT: After further review, yes, you can use the Boombox art from the gallery, just not from the Boombox comic book.

    This is not where entries go. Please read the contest details.

    Also, you have a full month to work on this. Take your time and really think about what you want to do and take the time to make it look as good as possible.

    You cannot use other people's fan art. You cannot steal art from other members and claim it as your own. If you are entering artwork, then you must be the artist.

    As cool as this is, I'm gonna be passing since I really wouldn't know where to stick this TF stuff.

    I currently have the new Razer TRON keyboard and mouse set and am using that.

    Good luck to all who partake. :)
