Hey there, Hollowers!

It has only been 10 DAYS since we announced our favorite furry whip-wielder & her Kickstarter you’ve all been wildly supporting!!! We’re awestruck by the love and support we’ve received so far and as a thank you to you all, we’re holding a community art contest for Mina the Hollower! Winners will be granted some Kickstarter Reward Tier prizes so if you want to know more, keep reading!!!! 

Whoa! So much cool stuff!

Contest Prompt

The prompt of the contest is "Mina the Hollower",  so anything concerning the game is on target! 

If you are unfamiliar with Mina the Hollower, you can learn all about Mina, her quest, and the spooky world she lives in on our:

To help get the creative juices flowing, here are some prompts:

  • What death defying scenarios would Mina get herself into while out on an adventure? What about in her down time, while kicking back in her Underlab? 

  • What might life have been like for Mina while she was a trainee back at the Hollowers Guild?

  • What would Mina look like facing off against a gaggle of Goopers or a swarm of Brittle Beaks?

  • Thorne is a mysterious presence and a shadow over Mina's attempts to keep the spark generators running. How would you visually depict their dynamic? 

  • When he’s not conducting civic affairs on Tenebrous Isle, how does Baron Lionel spend his time off? (Even Island overseers get PTO!)

Have ideas for your own original character that you think would fit right in on Tenebrous Isle or adventuring alongside Mina? Feel free to work them into your submission too!

The sky is the limit and we want to see it!

If you want examples, feel free to check out some cool art from our previous contests:
