Would you like to help the war effort against the Viking hordes? How about win a PlayStation Vita whilst your own character design is implemented in When Vikings Attack! as a playable character?

Well now you can, thanks to the When Vikings Attack! Character Design Contest that begins today!

Sony PlayStation and the awesome guys over at Clever Beans are offering one lucky gamer the opportunity to design a character in our upcoming Viking ‘em up for PSN.

Need a catch up on the game? Here’s Martin and Andrew from Clever Beans being all British at E3, describing When Vikings Attack! for both the PS3 and Vita.

During the second Viking invasion of Great Britain in the 1970s (you remember that from history class right?), many brave townsfolk took up arms to become one of the greatest civilian armies the country has ever known. Men, women and children fought the good fight to keep their idyllic land free from Viking oppression. Now we’ve done our best to represent all these brave people in the game but we thought it would be pretty cool to throw it out to the community as well…

All you have to do is take the character template that we’ve created, fill it in with any design you can think of and provide a short description. Once you’re ready, head on over to the contest page and upload your entry. Creations can be hand-drawn or created using your graphic design program of choice. We will do the technical bits and the fine artists over at Clever Beans will interpret it into the game.


Here are some examples of a few of the existing townsfolk in the game and how they came from sketch to character model.


Don’t feel you have to be constrained to the time period or location of the game. We understand that all sorts participated in the great battle so go wild and let your imagination have at it. We understand some of you may be hesitant to enter a contest that entails drawing, but have no fear. Artistic skill is not a requirement here — this is a contest of creativity! To ease your nerves, some of the folks at SCEE have volunteered to share their quirky character designs – head on over to our Flickr set to check them out.
