Hoxtober is here and the Crimefest is nigh!
On Saturday October 18 we’re kicking off with 10 days of Crimefest festivities. The 18th of course marks the three year anniversary of the PAYDAY-franchise and this year, it’s been 3 years since the PAYDAY-gang saw the light of day.
On this very fine day, October 18, which is in two weeks, we will start the celebration with two separate events:
A live show streamed on Twitch.tv with The Creatures on the 18th
We’ve flown in The Creatures and they’re going to host the Crimefest live show right here in Stockholm! If you don’t know who The Creatures are, they’ve been heisting in PAYDAY since 2011 and are the finders of the Giant Tootbrush among many other things. We’re going all-out on the live show with them with interviews with us developers and many other things.
The live show will be shot in the Monster Energy DreamHack studio!
We’re partnering with DreamHack and are filming the live show with the Creatures in the Monster Energy DreamHack studio here in Stockholm. All of it will be streamed live on the Creatures’ Twitch.tv channel for your viewing pleasure. So make sure you clear your schedule on October 18th!
We at OVERKILL and Starbreeze are celebrating with an ACTUAL Crimefest party, that you can win tickets to!
What would Crimefest be without the fest itself? We’re throwing a huge, exclusive and invite only, party and have some tickets that we want to give to our PAYDAY fans through a small competition. The party will be on October 18th!
E-mail email@example.com with a drawing or something else that you have made that is PAYDAY-related. Our in-house jury will look at it all up until next Wednesday and confirm if you get a ticket or not based on how awesome we think the thing you created is.
If you make stuff – make sure you’re able to make the party because Sweden can be a long way to go depending on where in the world you live!
Disclaimer #1: The competion goes on between 2014-10-07 – 2014-10-14. We pick as many people as we have tickets to give away. If you don’t get a reply, you weren’t picked. We will tell you if you won and get a ticket.
Disclaimer #2: By sending art and other stuff to firstname.lastname@example.org, you agree that we’re able to print it and show it off live during the Crimefest live show on Twitch.tv.
Disclaimer #3: If you win a ticket, any travel arrangements or accommodation in Stockholm has to be made by yourself. We give you an exclusive ticket to the Crimefest where you can party with the OVERKILL and Starbreeze developers and have a night you’ll remember.
There will be more…
Keep your eyes peeled on anything and everything PAYDAY during this month. More’s to come!
We in the OVERKILL crew are super excited to do this with both DreamHack and The Creatures as our partners. This is going to be a month of PAYDAY activities to remember!
Let’s do this!
