Ever dream of having your name appear in the credits of your favorite game? Now is your chance, and all you need is a little design sense. Namco Bandai is holding a community shield design contest via the official Dark Souls Facebook page, and the three winners will have their names squeezed into the game's credits.
You will need to actually "Like" the page in order to participate. Once you've pressed the blue button, you can download a blank shield template provided by the publisher and begin working on your masterpiece. The deadline is July 13, and every contestant may submit up to three designs.
On July 20, the community will be voting for their favorites, narrowing down the selection to ten entries. At that point, the remaining ten finalists will be sent to developer From Software, and the development team will choose the winning three. The top ten finalists will each receive an autographed copy of Dark Souls Limited Edition, while the winners get that and their names in the credits.
