Hordes of Serious Sam fans and would-be video game writers around the world can now have a hand in Serious Sam HD on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC. Brought to the masses by Croteam, Devolver Digital, cdv Software Entertainment AG, and Majesco Entertainment, an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, the Serious Tweet Contest gives gamers a chance to write their very own clever one-liner or hilarious wisecrack that Sam 'Serious' Stone will drop right in the middle of all the frantic, non-stop shooting action in Serious Sam HD. The lucky winner will have his or her line recorded by John J. Dick, the voice of Serious Sam, and integrated into the upcoming summer release for the entire world to hear.
"We have always admired the love and support fans have shown Croteam and the Serious Sam franchise," said a shy, unassuming spokesperson for Devolver Digital. "This is a fantastic way to get gamers involved in Serious Sam HD and give our fans a chance to contribute to the game itself."
So how does a budding video game writer enter a finely crafted line for a chance to hear it in Serious Sam HD? Gamers can log on to Twitter and send a brilliant tweet quip to @devolverdigital between July 15 and July 30. Croteam will choose the winning line and Devolver Digital will announce it to all followers of www.twitter.com/devolverdigital and www.twitter.com/majesco in early August.
"I never get any thanks for the wonderfully poetic and emotionally layered lines I write for Sam 'Serious' Stone," said an overworked and underpaid writer at Croteam "So guess what? Let someone else take a crack at it and see how hard it is. These witty remarks don't write themselves you know."
In addition to having the winning line appear in Serious Sam HD, the winner's name will be immortalized in the credits of the game and forever become a part of Serious Sam lore.
Developed by Croteam, the creators of the Serious Sam franchise, and produced in partnership with Devolver Digital, Serious Sam: The First Encounter is re-tooled and re-vamped in glorious High Definition with the all-new Serious Engine 3. It is scheduled for release on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PC in late summer.
