Press Start to Join: A Gaming Writing Competition

A worthy challenge for gamers everywhere...



Hi everyone, ♠ Aldrin ♠ here. Gaming is becoming much more of a prevalent thing here on Movellas. Gaming fanfictions and fan art are popping up everywhere, from Pokemon, to The Elder Scrolls, to Dark Souls! Most games have all got a place in my heart, aside from some (I'm looking at you, Sanic the Horcheg…) but I would like to welcome anyone who loves to game all night and day - and then suddenly remembers “Oh honey-dipped cotton fuzzballs! I’ve forgotten to do my maths assignment! But… I need to complete this quest…” ...Trust me ladies and gents, I have oh most certainly been in that position.


But whilst I may not encourage you to miss your maths assignments, I do however implore you to write your heart out about games and gaming fanfictions. Do so with every fibre of your being, because for this competition, you’re going to need to pour everything that is geeky and nerdy about you into one movella! That’s right, a gaming fanfiction competition!!



How to Participate


We have very simple rules here. And unfortunately from the title, there is no Start button for you to press to join us. However, you can simply enter by writing either:


1. Write a fanfiction story about any videogame of your choosing. Crossovers are also allowed, so for example, mixing Mario with Call of Duty, for the hilarity.


2. Write a story where your character has been placed into the world of a game. A humble boy may suddenly live in Hyrule from Legend of Zelda, for instance.


​3. We welcome fanart as well! Any fanart, from digital, to traditional, to abstract; it just must be based on a game.


The Prizes

It's not all or nothing when it comes to winning prizes. For this competition, we have either/or options too so if you are one of our winners you can choose a giftcard, or a prize, it's up to you.



1st place will receive a $20 amazon giftcard for their gaming and/or writing needs :) 

or Zombie Version Stereo Headphones specifically made for Gaming!


1 runner up will receive a $15 amazon giftcard to buy the prize of your choosing... 


Best Fanart will receive a $15 amazon giftcard or a Gaming Headset from Sades - in Movellas blue.

Multiple entries allowed (limit - 3)

You may not update your entry/movella once the competition deadline has passed.

You may not use the same movella in future competitions.

You may not use a movella that has already been published in other competitions.

NOTE: Covers & trailers must use resources licensed under CC0, or Public Domain. If you’re creating something that will be listed as a fan work, then you may use resources relating to your chosen fan-base (or combination of fan-bases), but it must be listed as fanfiction when you release it on Movellas.


Looking forward to reading your awesome entries!
