Dress Like Hector and Win

As Hector would say, "listen up you coachpokers"! Do you aspire to become a slovenly, crass, yet somehow incredibly skilled officer of the law? Do you have the fashion sense of...ah, better yet, do you lack any fashion sense? Does your interior decorating resemble that of a derelict tenement? Also, are you creative? Well then, this contest is for you.

From now until 2:00 pm (Pacific Time) on Wednesday, May 11, get your most unkempt yet "professional-ish" outfit together (use Hector's garb in the photo above as inspiration if you like) and take a photo of yourself (or have a friend take it, that would be more ideal) in a setting suitable for a dirty detective (ie. a messy office, a boarded up building) and post it in the contest thread (in the Telltale Games Forum) (which you are already in). Once the entry period has ended (2:00 pm Pacific Time on 5/11/2011) I'll create a poll in this thread that includes all entrants and the contest voting period will begin, ending at 2:00 pm Pacific Time on Monday, May 16 - so get your votes in on time. At that time, the three entrants with the most votes will win. I'll announce them here and post the winning entries on the Telltale Games Blog later that day. (If you don't want me to post yours, I won't.)

You're probably wondering what you can win, am I right? Here's what:

A copy of Hector: Episode 1 - We Negotiate With Terrorists for PC/Mac (giftable)
A copy of Poker Night at the Inventory for PC/Mac (giftable)

There's no prize for being first so please take your time on your contest entry (one entry per person); you have plenty of time to sully up some clothes and find a fine location for your shoot. Get creative, use some lighting that matches the look of the game, re-create a scene from the game, go wild! What are you waiting for, get to work on your entry! Good luck!

    You just didn't want to jeopardize your status as "the hot one". :D

    Have you seen some of the girls on here lately? I can gracefully segue into my role as the homely nanna figure. :p

    Hello! You called?
  • Hello! You called?

    That was quick and kind of creepy...going over here now...the safe side of the forum*Runs*
  • I'm here, too, y'know.

    I saw that you intended to enter. Since then, I was hoping you and/or Puzzlebox would do a Courtney Love take on Hector.

    Am I too horny for this forum?
  • Hi Alcoremortis,
    Is that Kreia from KOTOR in your avatar? It doesn't get much more attractive than that!
  • I like Klatuu's version the most. Really surprised by the results so far.

    When you've walked down the filthy crime-ridden streets of this forum as long as I have, you've seen it all. No-good low-life two-bit thugs swarming across the threads like body lice on a hobo, respawning like life is set on the maximum difficulty setting, taking all your hopes and dreams, and crushing them flatter than a flapjack at a greasy spoon diner where they never even give you enough maple syrup, the eggs have little bits of shell in them, and the coffee, like the forum, is cold and bitter. All I know is, the dreams of a washed-up gamer and delusions of winning a poll don't amount to a bucket of fish in this crazy mixed-up world. But I'm not here for contests. I'm here for justice. I'm a detective.



    P.S. Thanks, Falanca!
  • Hey folks -

    Apologies for the late end to the contest, yesterday got a little nuts with Claudia Wells here so I couldn't shut it down. Since there's no way to definitively tell who was winning at the end of the contest I'm just going to give everyone that entered the contest a code for the game! Keep an eye on your PMs today to receive your Hector gift code! Thanks so much for playing!


    EDIT: I'll just be adding the game to everyone who entered's accounts! Check your My Telltale pages soon!
