Game developer Stoic Studio recently made an interesting proposal to the fans of the Banner Saga franchise: they make their own game-related trailer.
Banner Saga trailer contest has a hefty prize
Stoic Studio said that in order to celebrate the release of the upcoming third title, they want their fans to make a trailer of their own. They can use the trailers and images that the studio will provide them, use the footage from the game that players have captured, or use their own artwork. If one of them wins the first prize, they get the bragging rights for creating such an awesome video and a whopping $4,500.
The runner-up will get a digital copy of the game’s trilogy deluxe edition on PC. The three third place winners will get a digital copy of the third iteration of the game on the platform of their choosing.
