"I'm only interested in dating other worshippers of Pan, God of the Wild. Although, if you're really hot, I'll reconsider."
Wow! Thanks so much to everyone who has submitted proposals so far. We've received an overwhelming response and a number of quality entries!
To keep things manageable for the team, we will be moving the cut-off for submissions up to the end of Saturday, October 1st,
so please be sure to send in all submissions before that time.
MONSTR, is a parody of the Tinder dating app, featuring everyone's favorite spooks, ghosts, and creeps—all single and looking to date you, fellow monster! For the 2016 Halloween season we are releasing an updated version of the app with some new features and a score of new profiles.
This is where you come in! We are looking to add at least 10 laugh-out-loud profiles to the game. The profiles that appear in game are an affectionate (and often cringe-worthy) take on the weirdly specific and boastful varieties of profiles seen on Tinder and other dating apps—so if you've ever seen a dating profile so bad it was good, you know exactly what we're looking for.
The best way to get an idea of the game's current content will be to play the game, which is available (free!) for iOS on the iTunes Store:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/monstr- ... 34599?mt=8
If you do not have an iOS device, however, please see the second post in this thread for some examples of profiles that appear in-game.
Each submitted profile proposal must include a username, statistics (such as height/weight/features), and profile text, as well as the type of monster they are and a proposed description of appearance for the monster.
Profiles must be well-written, but will be judged for their coherence and above all their humor. Be as funny as you can—but not intentionally offensive!
If selected, writers will be asked to supply a brief description of the first meeting with their monster, as well as a short excerpt of chat transcript between the player and the monster. Some brief content relating to the game's new features (TBD) may also be requested. Further details of this will be provided to selected applicants.
Accepted and completed profiles (including additional content) will earn $100/profile for the writer. Profiles, if accepted, will also have high-quality art produced to accompany them. Contributors will also be credited in-game.
The team has a very high standard for humor. If interested, it is suggested to submit multiple proposals at a time, because it is likely that only a very small percentage of submitted profiles will be accepted.
Content from submitted proposals that are not accepted will not be used in any way, shape, or form.
The deadline for proposal submissions is October 1, 11:59 PM PST. If selected, writers will be expected to complete the additional content for the profile by a hard deadline of October 14, so please apply only if you feel you will be able to work on a tight schedule.
Please submit profile proposals and other inquiries to: Rosstin.Murphy[at]gmail.com
