If Sega receives 100 pieces of fan-made concept art for Project Needlemouse Badniks, we can finally stop calling the next Sonic game Project Needlemouse.

It started with a trivia challenge, and now part II of Sega's Needlemouse Challenge tests fans artistic skills. We can blame Deviant artist Trakker for this, as his concept art piece, seen above, caught the company's attention. Now they want more. 100 pieces more. The price is steep, but the reward is never having to type the words Project Needlemouse again. I'm in.

What they want is 100 fan-crafted bits of art depicting Badniks from any of the 2D Sonic games in concept-art style. Create them, upload them somewhere, and then post them to the comments section of the Sega post below. Should the goal be reached by Monday morning, Sega will reveal the name of the new Sonic game.

If the goal isn't reached, it's Project Needlemouse for all eternity.

Okay, probably not. I figure the name is coming on Monday no matter what, but pull out your crayons and your pencils anyway, just in case.
