[37 Steem In Prizes] Contest: Survival Horror Moments. No Upvote, No Resteem, No Follow Required!

in #archdruidcontest4 years ago

The prize pool is 37 Steem. Bring your storytelling, art skills, poetry rhythmic and so much more to express survival horror moments you have experienced in games.



Tell us about survival horror moments in a game. Some examples of how you could express this could be:

-- A written story
-- Artwork you have created
-- A written poem
-- A written song
-- Don’t have survival horror moments you have experience in a game? Tell us what is needed in a game to make you experience it.

This is about gaming in general and it could include: card games, board games, puzzle games, and video games. It could focus on a single horror moment, an entire game, or even things you find rather lackluster in this genre of games. These are just a couple of examples so don’t feel limited to just these when sharing with us. We look forward to reading your entries!

Might have to dust off the ol' contest entry keyboard and plug away at an entry on this topic. Great pick for autumn! Also, 7 Days to Die kicks ass, and I can't wait for Alpha 17 to drop. :)

can't wait for Alpha 17

Seems like we have been waiting forever on A17! I just hope they get it out by end of the year like they are looking to. It has been a while.

Awesome contest. Just resteemed and shared in the Speculative Writers of Steemit Discord group.
