'Shop Contest: Cowboys Go Everywhere

Illustration for article titled Shop Contest: Cowboys Go Everywhere

We’ve finally seen gameplay footage of Red Dead Redemption 2. Surprise, it’s got cowboys. Our ‘Shop Contest this week is all about figuring out where those cowboys go.


In the gameplay trailer for RDR2, it’s explained that the West encompassed all kinds of areas. Swamps and deserts, plains and mountains. My assumption is that if you point yourself in a direction, you’ll eventually wander off the game map. But where does the cowboy go when they leave the map?

Our ‘Shop Contest this week is all about showing where the cowboys go if they mosey just a little too far. As you can see above, it’s interesting to me that Tamriel is just a hop away from the map boundary. But it could be space. Or the Upper Aedirn. Or that stage where you fight the steak in Earthworm Jim 2. Anything is possible.


I’m including a handy .PNG of Cowboy McProtagonist from RDR2, but feel free to use anything from the trailer in your quest to put the cowboys in the places.

Next Saturday I will look at all the entries and choose a winner and some honorable mentions! Good ‘shopping to ya, the rest of the instructions are below. Y’all.

How To Upload Images — Instructions

1. Create your ‘Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 636 pixels wide.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click “Choose file” if you’re uploading your ‘shop from your desktop

4. Alternatively, you can upload the ‘Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image’s URL into the field that says “Image URL.” Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

5. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn’t, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I will look at it.

6. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you’re still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.
