Boy, is it a busy month for lovers of cows and competitions. Just some days after the Cow-Formed Swap competitors, we now have a Cow-Formed Artwork competitors, run by the precise makers of Story of Seasons themselves.
XSEED has been teasing this since final week, revealing a “Who’s That Pokémon”-style silhouette, to which all of us yelled “IT IS A COW”. However, oho, what fools we have been! It was a misdirect! A crimson herring! The art work, commissioned from illustrator Kehasuk, isn’t a cow in any respect. It’s, the truth is, a bunch of Story of Seasons artwork cleverly designed to look like a cow.
The art work has been made to have fun the twenty fifth anniversary of Story of Seasons (AKA Harvest Moon till 2014, AKA Bokujo Monogatari in Japan, AKA “that recreation that impressed Stardew Valley”), and comes only a few days after the Western launch of Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, from which the characters in the picture are taken.
The physical artwork can be won by 25 lucky fans, who can enter the competition by retweeting XSEED’s tweet before the end of the day. However, you’ll also have to follow them on Twitter and Instagram, and be a US resident. Aw
However, we do spy on the artwork a little “___ of 100” mark, so maybe there will be chances to win/buy the other 75 for anyone who really, really needs this cow/not-cow in their lives. Keep your hooves crossed!
