Hello Sim here! Yes, it's that time again!
Got another great competition for you! We want you to create a Pun-tastic fictional brand that might be found in the world of Carma. It could be a business, or a product, or service, and might also be accompanied by a snappy slogan and even a logo. For instance, in Carmageddon we featured spoof brands such as Immobil and Badyear, the evil Magnachem corporation plus U-Get Gas and Gasso gas stations. We brought you TWAT Airlines and Planker's Lumber, not forgetting posters featuring attractive products such as the soft drink "Urine". So let's face it, we haven't exactly set the bar at an astronomically high level here guys…
So start thinking about the great big world of brand identity, and share your awful ideas with us here in this thread! You are more than welcome to create a logo too, if you feel so inclined, however it isn't a requirement for the competition and wont effect the choosing of the winners. The winner will just be the entry that makes us laugh and/or groan the loudest. And obviously you can enter more than once if you are full of ideas!
And how about this for a prize… the best brand will appear in the game! :D Yes, the winning entry (and possibly runner ups, if we love 'em enough) will be incorporated into the game world, whether it's as a car sponsor logo, or an advertising billboard, or store front signage. The winner will also receive our fabulous Competition Winner t-shirt, plus one of my limited edition Granny models! Runners up will get themselves a Carmageddon: Reincarnation t-shirt.
The competition is going to run until the new year to give you all a great chance at coming up with a great* idea or ten.
Think you can improve on "The Log Inn"? Well then get posting! Sim Out!
