Brother Electronics and Sony have joined forces to launch a contest, wherein a lucky family of four will get flown to New York to take part in a Ghostbusters Halloween in 2010! I’ve found references on Irish and UK websites for Brother, but other press makes it sound global. More on that in a second.
The contest is pretty simple – play their odd little, flash game (UK page), which you can play using either the top-down, Pac-Man style or 3rd person, Doom style interface. The winner will be whomever can complete the five levels the fastest – there are runner up prizes of Sony electronics, and unspecified weekly prizes. The contest will run until November of this year.
This is the UK contest page, but as mentioned, it’s not clear if the contest will soon appear on other Brother sites around the world – if anyone spots one, please post the link in the comments, so we can direct people to the right contest and rules for their country.
