Contest 8: 2/13 – 2/18 Trailer Mad Lib

A tremendous amount of blood, sweat, and tears went into the making of our pre-alpha trailer. As we mentioned in The Rune Recap, we went through more than 70 revisions before sharing the trailer with the world. Now, we want to see what you can do with it.

This week’s contest is a Mad Lib-style exercise inviting you to rewrite the trailer script. We’ve provided an outline below, but feel free to go wherever inspiration takes you. Post your trailer script to this forum thread by Sunday, February 18 at 11:59pm CST. We’ll vote on the best entry and the winner will earn their place on our key winners’ list.
