Admittedly, the original rules were a little restricted. The reason you weren’t allowed to use GAME CHARACTERS in your entries was because of the legal complications of them appearing in the official music video.
But there have been SO MANY of you who have protested over this that we have come up with a simple solution…
YOU CAN NOW USE GAME CHARACTERS IN YOUR ENTRIES!! To make this happen we’ve had to cancel production of the official music video so that MORE of you can enter. It’s a small price to pay BUT you can still win the same INCREDIBLE PRIZE BUNDLES! Plus there is an extended deadline to Midnight (GMT) March 5th 2010 for anyone who wants to work on a new entry.
Sing / Lip-sync
Play / Air an instrument
Be as CREATIVE as you can!
You cannot excessively use official artwork
You cannot use game footage
You cannot use official animations (cutscenes, cartoons, anime etc.)
WINNERS will still receive the original prize bundles. Even better in fact… the concept art has been upgraded to a SIGNED CONCEPT ART BOOK from SONIC & SEGA ALL-STARS RACING.
Entries that have already been accepted WILL NOT BE AFFECTED and the original terms and conditions still apply. However, if you want to SUBMIT A NEW ENTRY you can do that too!
YOU HAVE 2 WEEKS LEFT – get creative!!
