Nintendo Life favorite Toki Tori is turning one year old. Hooray! In honor of the plump bird's anniversary and the game's impending iPhone release, Two Tribes and Chillingo have teamed up for a contest to get Tori fans to do all the marketing.
To compete, come up with a snazzy way of promoting the game and submit it to the contest's official Web site. Photoshopped pics, videos, anything at all really, as long as it has that yellow fella slapped on it somewhere.
First prize nets you 20,000 Wii Points worth of Wii Points or iTunes gift cards, a chicken adopted in your name and a Toki Tori figurine. Nine additional Toki Tori figurines will go to the best runners-up.
Check out the contest's kinda weird video and fairly normal press release below.
In preparation of the May 22nd Toki Tori iPhone launch, in conjunction with the celebration of the one year anniversary of the WiiWare™ game, Two Tribes and Chillingo are inviting gamers to show off their creative skills in the newly launched Toki Tori Promotion Contest. The contest challenges entrants to think of cool ways to promote the game.
Fans who are interested in participating in this contest can view the official rules and submit their entries at: http://www.tokitori.com/contest. Toki Tori fans can show off their creativity by showing their original promotional plans in action. Possible examples include dressing up as Toki Tori, pimping out their MySpace page, creating a YouTube video featuring Toki Tori, or organizing a Toki Tori party and showing off the results. Contestants can submit their entries to http://www.tokitori.com/contest as well.
The Toki Tori Promotion Contest begins today and ends on June 26. The production teams at Two Tribes B.V and Chillingo will judge all entries and pick winners. The most creative entry will receive the first price consisting of a $200EU iTunes Gift Card or Wii points, a chicken to be adopted in your name and a Toki Tori figurine. The top nine runner up entries will all win a Toki Tori figurine.
The winners and their designs will be announced on June 29th at http://www.tokitori.com/contest.
