Are you a game developer with a sense of humor?

Would you like to participate in a free fun promotion designed to build awareness of your game and to help you acquire users?

Seek no more. We have the answer. HarryBalls.com plans to publish a special new section called to The Harry Balls Bathing Suit Edition which will gently make fun of traditional media’s swimsuit editions while promoting upcoming video games and entertaining the gaming consumer.

Imagine seeing a tank in a thong or an zombie in a bikini. How about an Orc in a one piece bathing suit?

What makes an image funny?

a. Putting a swimsuit on a video game character who wouldn’t normally wear a swimsuit. i.e. A space alien, Orc, Zombie, a tank

b. Putting a swimsuit like a bikini or thong on a game character that wouldn’t be expected to wear a bikini if the character were to wear a swimsuit.

c. Putting a swimsuit designed in the 20’s on a modern or futuristic video game character.

d. Putting the character in the swimsuit in a pose only a swimsuit model use.

e. Posing a character in a poorly fitted swimsuit.

Cliff Harris, owner of the UK based indie game company Positech Games said “This sounds truly awesome.”

Patrick Hudson, CEO of Robot Entertainment said “I like the idea.”

The Harry Balls Bathing Suit Edition will reside on the HarryBalls.com site. It will only appear on the HarryBalls.com site and not in any print magazines. Participation on the Harry Balls Bathing Suit edition is free for game developers. The character can come from a game on any platform – mobile, IPad, IPhone, PC, Mac, XBLA, XBox 360, DS, etc in an game genre.

HarryBalls.com will include information about each game including features and links to purchase/download the games. Game developers should send the 600 x 400 image of their character (s) in their bathing suit to hb AT harryballsdotcom by October 15th, 2011.
