A set-up for disaster: Sony's Folklore Create-a-Creature contest

Game Republic's upcoming PlayStation 3 title, Folklore, is probably one of the more anticipated titles here at the Destructoid offices. Sure, last year's Genji: Days of the Blade (Game Republic's PS3 launch title) made of us cry a little into our pillows at night, but Folklore's interesting play mechanics and stunning visual design are hard to ignore.

So when Sony asks PlayStation Underground members to design their own Folklore creature, I get a bit nervous. Maybe I'm just jaded, because around here, I'd expect the community to design a tuxedo wearing anus monster, whose main power would be "The Sphincter Releaser." Not that there's anything wrong with that, really ...

The contest's winner will have his or her creature added to a downloadable game pack and it will be come part of the game's story, joining one of the already 100+ available beasts (or "Folks" as they're called in the game). The winner and four runners up will also receive copies of the game, which is slated to ship this November. 

So what are you waiting for? Get to designing, and make sure it kind of looks like the Destructoid robot. 

[Thanks, Chris!]
