Yes, you read that correctly. It started with an online petition from a fan on the 2K forums, imploring 2K Games to make a BioShock limited edition. 19,692 signatures later, a poll was opened on the Cult of Rapture asking BioShock devotees what they would like to see in the box.
What would you like ON the box?
To give you some backstory, this idea began because of a fan in the 2K forums, Rapture_Tourist gave them an awesome idea with his very detailed fan art of a possible BioShock Limited Edition. They loved the feeling of his etched metal casing, and want to run with it. (See his design here.)
So now, for the next two weeks, they be collecting submissions for designs that could go on the front of the BioShock Limited Edition box.
If trying your hand at making the box art for BioShock isn’t enough, all entries will will be displayed on the Cult of Rapture at the end of the contest? And if you win? Heres what you get:
- Third Place will receive an exclusive Cult of Rapture tee shirt and a copy of the BioShock Limited Edition for both Xbox 360 and PC.
- Second Place will receive an official Xbox 360 faceplate, a Cult of Rapture tee, an exclusive Cult of Rapture download on Xbox Live, and a copy of the BioShock Limited Edition for both Xbox 360 and PC.
- First Place will get their art on the cover of the BioShock Limited Edition, a copy of the BioShock Limited Edition for both Xbox 360 and PC, and an all-expense paid trip from their home anywhere in the world to the BioShock Launch Party in August.
