Joystiq pumpkin-carving contest (win Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles!)


Next week is Halloween, which means many of you are putting the finishing touches on your video game-themed costumes, while decorating your haunted mansions with video game-themed jack-o'-lanterns. Since you're already at it, why not enter our pumpkin-carving contest for a chance to win the perfect Halloween game, Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles? We're giving away ten copies of the beautiful 2.5D PSP game, a remake of the heretofore Japan-only Dracula X: Rondo of Blood, to the winners. Did we mention it also includes the PC Engine Duo original and a new port of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night? Well, it does. So get carving!

The rules are simple:
  • Carve a video-game themed pumpkin.
  • Send a picture of your pumpkin, in .jpg format, to contests AAT joystiq DAWT com. (Be sure to take an additional picture with the word "joystiq" written on a piece of paper somewhere. If you're selected as a winner, we'll ask to see this other photo to ensure that you haven't submitted someone else's carving as your own.)
  • Deadline for entries is noon Eastern Time Monday, October 29. Twenty-five (25) finalists will be selected by Joystiq staffers based equally on creativity and originality. Out of those finalists, ten (10) winners will be selected based on reader votes.
  • You may enter as many carved pumpkins as you like, so long as they're all somehow related to video games.
For the full details, peruse the official rules here.
