Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Milo Edition

This week's challenge is another no-brainer. Develop unearthed some storyboards for Milo, the presumed-dead game by Lionhead Studios that was one of the first proofs of concept for what is now known as Kinect.

Now, we value good games development and are very respectful of others' property, always. But not when we've got our mitts on exploitable images like these. I really shouldn't have to set any parameters here. There are four pictures in this gallery and even more through Develop. Go to town.


Given how, well, creepy it is to be put in charge of an adolescent boy, manipulating him with your hands ... yeah ... we're gonna see a lot of Chris Hansen and pedobear in this one. There's no prize to the contest other than selection to the final gallery, so it's not like I'll disqualify anyone, but try to think a little further outside that box, though.

This is your no-frills step-by-step procedure to participate.

1. Create your 'Shop.
2. Upload it to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. It's stupid simple. No account is necessary.
3. This is very important: You must use the URL of the image itself. In imgur, this is the second URL it gives you after you upload the image. It's under "Direct Link (email & IM)"
4. At the beginning of the comments roll, click "Start a New Thread"
5. To the right of your name, select "Image."
6. Paste the imgur URL in the image URL field. It's the field that says "Image URL."
7. You can add editorial commentary if you want, but you can hit submit and your 'Shop entry will be uploaded to the comments.

You know the rules: The 20 best will get rounded up and published at the end of next Saturday. Meantime, I and the rest of the starred commentariat will approve and promote as many as we can so folks can see them and pass judgment.

As an added inducement, I want to let you know I do star commenters who send in worthy/funny submissions - whether or not they're chosen for the final 20. This may not happen immediately. I usually start rounding up a gallery by the middle of the week. This is my subjective call, but I do want to recognize as many contributors as possible, and show gratitude for making this such a popular feature on weekends
