London, United Kingdom 4/11/2003 NovaLogic Ltd. today announced the launch of an online graffiti competition at
www.devastationgame.co.uk/graffiti to search for the nation’s most promising
online graffiti artist.
With a top prize of £1000, the graffiti competition has been launched
in conjunction with the release of Devastation, due for PC on 17th April, and
is looking for the graffiti piece that best represents the Devastation world.
Based in a post apocalyptic future, Devastation is a first person shooter-style
game that pits rebelling urban street fighters, gang leaders and mercenaries
against overwhelming armies of high-tech corporate troopers.
NovaLogic has also teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
to cross promote the release of Devastation with the forthcoming DVD release
of 28 Days Later, a film that shares a similar theme to the Devastation world.
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will be supplying theatrical posters
and screenplays signed by Director Danny Boyle, Author Alex Garland and Producer
Andrew Macdonald, as well as DVD copies of the film itself, as prizes for the
online graffiti competition.
‘Working with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has been a great
coup for NovaLogic,’ commented Lucinda Searle, Marketing Manager, NovaLogic. ‘Devastation
shares a similar world to 28 Days Later and both titles have received critical
acclaim for their innovative approach to visual imagery.’
The Devastation online graffiti site uses cutting-edge online technology to
allow budding graffiti artists to spray, paint and daub their designs using
a variety of spray types and colours.
‘The Devastation graffiti interface is as close to the real thing as
you’re going to get online’, commented ‘Cause’, a South
London graffiti artist. ‘The look and feel of the sprays are bang on
and I think we’re going to see some amazing art being produced.’
The Devastation online graffiti competition can be found at www.devastationgame.co.uk/graffiti.
Devastation will be published by NovaLogic Ltd. for PC CD-ROM on 17th April
2003, priced £34.99.
28 Days Later is out on DVD, priced £19.99, and video, priced £12.99,
on 19th May 2003 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
