Sony “When Vikings Attack” Character Design Competition (Asia)

Have you ever dreamt of using your artistic talent to actually design a character for a game? How about doing this, getting your name in the game credits, and winning a Crystal White PlayStation®Vita console, too?


“When Vikings Attack” Character Design Competition (Asia) is your chance!


Set to come out on PlayStation®Network Autumn this year, “When Vikings Attack” is an all-action fighting adventure game in which you have a group of townsfolk – men, women and kids fight against invading Vikings to keep their idyllic land free from oppression. Want to take a glance at the game? Here you go:


More about the game

Now Clever Beans, the game developer company have tried their best to represent all these brave people in the game but it would be pretty cool to throw it out to the community as well…

All you need to do is to pick up a pen or a mouse to let your creativity run wild on the Viking character template and submit your design via an online registration form from 16th July to 10th August. The character design can be a drawing done with pen, pencil, crayon or computer graphics, but remember to i­­nclude a short description of the character to let us know why your character is the way it is.


1. Designs should be ‘original’ concepts, and cannot represent trademarked characters (e.g. a Batman design).

2. The character should be one of the townspeople (wacky as you like) with all ethnicities welcome (apart from Viking!)

Clever Beans, the game developer company of this title will select the best design based on its creativity. The Asia grand prize winner will not only get a Crystal White PS Vita (Wi-Fi) with a ‘When Vikings Attack’ full game voucher, but also have their winning character implemented in the game and their name in the credits! The 1st to 5th runner-up will each get Prepaid Value, while 25 special prize winners can enjoy a free game download of “When Vikings Attack”!

How would it feel when your creative skills are given free rein? When you see a character designed by you come to life on screen? When you win the brand-new Crystal White PS Vita console? You will find that out, before Vikings attack.
