Dark Souls contest could see Train2Game students get their names in game credits

Train2Game Art & Animation students have the chance to see their work appear in the upcoming Dark Souls thanks to a competition from Namco Bandai.

They’re giving fans the opportunity to design a shield that’ll be included in Dark Souls following its release for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in October this year. It’s a great opportunity for Train2Game Art & Animation students to get their names into the credits of a Triple-A title.

To enter, interested Train2Game students need to ‘like’ the Dark Souls Facebook page then create a shield design using one of the three templates provided.

You have until 13th July to submit your designs after which the top ten will be decided by a week of voting from the community.  The top ten designs for each template will then be sent to game developers From Software who will pick the three winners for use in the game.

Of course, there’s nothing stopping any Train2Game student from entering the Dark Souls competition! But it’s probably something that’s more suited to the Train2Game Art & Animation students.

For more information about the Dark Souls design contest, see the the Dark Souls Facebook page. You can also ‘like’ the official Train2Game Facebook page.

Dark Souls is scheduled for release on 7th October for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

So Train2Game, will you enter the contest? Could you see such a competition as a way of trying to get into the game industry?
