Okay, I know I say this quite often but...
This was one of the most difficult competitions I've ever had to judge at Kotaku Australia.
There were so many entries and the entries were of such a high level of quality. It was super difficult to whittle the list down. I had to make a shortlist of the shortlist of the shortlist. I spent a lot of time judging these. It's your fault I didn't get any work done today!
Okay, a reminder. Here's what was up for grabs...
1 x Glacier White PlayStation 4 1 x Until Dawn Special Edition 1 x Until Dawn Prize Pack (T-Shirt, Heat Reveal Mug & Snow Globe)
1 x Until Dawn Special Edition 1 x Until Dawn Prize Pack (T-Shirt, Heat Reveal Mug & Snow Globe)
3 x Runners-Up
3 x Until Dawn Standard Edition
Okay, now for the overall winner:
Okay — context. Jdub made a GIF. A fantastic GIF that was waaaaay too big to post here. Click on this link to view it. Pure genius.
Okay this is also a GIF, but it was small enough for us to post. It also comes with a horrible story...
My entry is inspired by a true story. I finally bought a second hand PS4 last week, after abstaining and saving for serious life purchases, debts, etc. It's my first foray into current gen gaming. I got it home, and on taking a peek at my new score, I found a single bug on my PS4. I didn't think too much of it, tossed the bugger out of my clean, not-infested flat, and went out to work for a few hours.
When I got home later, I discovered three more roaches chilling out with my supposedly new PS4. 'Oh no' I thought, normally priding myself on sensible online purchases. In terror, I wrapped the playstation up tight in quarantine packaging conditions (the green package pictured). My only plan is to wait a month, maybe two, to starve them out, then to finally crack open my poor PS4 with a bunch of tools and remove the bodies.
Longtime reader, had to make a new account since i haven't posted in many years! #putmeoutofmymisery #reallifenightmare #scarierthanuntildawn
Really sorry we couldn't give you the PS4 you deserve Sarahmohawk!
3 x Runners-Up
I wish Kanye West was actually in Until Dawn.
Also, I want to give a big shout out to mrtoomuchsparetime who made this monstrosity. Seriously. This was unbelievable
Congrats to all the winners, we'll be in touch soon. Thanks to everyone who entered!
