Your Character In 8 Bit Rebellion Game

June 3, 2010

New contest: have your “Linkin Park 8-Bit Rebellion” character added to the game. Here’s how: either 1.) create an “8-Bit Rebellion” avatar using OR 2.) create and submit your own unique 8-Bit character.  Seven entries will be selected to be featured and each of the winners will receive a framed printout of their design signed by the members of the band.

My suggestion: draw, paint, or use your computer to design the most awesome, unique character.  It doesn’t have to be or look like you…it can be anything.  A ninja?  A robot?  A beaver?  Visit for contest details.

    damn only for US? stupid me entered XD
    Random question: the pink haired guy in Joe’s district, is that remy?

    @SLP_Bourdie: So you think I’m rude right? You know what? I just want to show my artwork to Mike. Is there anything wrong with that? And I never say that, “that’s Linkin Park’s fault of why we can’t join the contest.” And I don’t have any evil intention of why I showed it to Mike! If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all… Good luck to all who joined and God bless us all!

    Hello Mike! I am Xandro Pontillas from the Philippines. Yesterday I decided to draw my own 8-Bit Rebellion character, although Philippines and other countries are not included for the Linkin Park 8-Bit Rebellion contest except for Puerto Rico. My purpose of why I made this drawing is that to make you judge if I am good enough to draw or not?hahaha.But seriously I dedicate this drawing to you Mike and also to Chester, Rob, Dave, Joe, and Brad! Actually I spend over 3hours to draw this because its really hard to draw in the computer when you are only using the mouse. One of my inspiration to draw this Mike is you! Because I really really like your artworks and designs.

    Complete with accent and fake finger mustache) “I draw you picture, you be friend”?

  12. LP_marcia on June 4, 2010 at 6:38 am

    … Only for US … 😦 oooh… I have a million of ideas 😦

  13. Tayiaba on June 4, 2010 at 4:33 am

    Aww it’s only fo the us ? I had loadzz of ideas 😦

  14. xenith on June 4, 2010 at 3:07 am

    I’m a bit apprehensive to post anything on here lately after your last comments about how you think it’s lame people posting links. But again I thought you would like this, so shoot me…

    Normal videos rendered in different textmode’s. Try typing in Linkin Park for example.

  15. EpicLinkinPark on June 3, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    Hmm…very interesting..I am thinking about this, but um..I like to draw monster things like you, would that work? LOL. Oh does it have to be drawn in 8 bit form already?

  16. Sunrise_Ashes on June 3, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    I so want to have a shot at this, if only for the pure fun of designing my own character. But, the contest is only in the U.S. so I don’t think I’ll be able to take part … 😦

  17. souneik on June 3, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    Ooh can I play?? How about instead of a print, you give me toys!! Yay!
    I want fully articulated versions of the robots from reanimation with weights in their feet. 1/55 scale. Nah, I’ll make you some guys, It’s not like they’d be doing anything else but sitting in a closet.

  18. linkinparkette on June 3, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    i need a i-thingie e.e

  19. Alexandra Nofi on June 3, 2010 at 10:35 am

    This is awesome!!! 😀

    Um… I really love pixel art a lot, but I like to be hella detailed with it… So, does it have to be simple 8 Bit, or can I go crazy with it, and know it won’t effect my chances of winning? Thank you very much 🙂

  20. cincybmxlpfreak on June 3, 2010 at 10:10 am

    That’s really awesome! I think I’m gonna try to make a character through paint.

  21. Shugah Colby on June 3, 2010 at 9:31 am

    Sick… i dont know what im going to draw yet but ill think of something. You guys love to do contests, dont you? *^_^*

  22. TheGlueLpFan on June 3, 2010 at 9:29 am

    It’s a great contest even though it’s us only.I might actually come up with my hero just for the idea 🙂

  23. DJ on June 3, 2010 at 9:02 am

    Awesome contest. I’m not artistic in the least, so I won’t be submitting anything. But to the people that complain about US only contests? It’s not LP’s choice, you know. It has to do with international laws.

  24. Ana on June 3, 2010 at 8:18 am

  25. Nazgulinou on June 3, 2010 at 8:08 am

    It’s great!!!!!… Too bad I do not live in the United States

  26. widya rahayu on June 3, 2010 at 8:01 am

    Mind was full with ideas when i read the news, then when i read the comments.. I know it’s LP’s right to make the rules but please, at least mention it from the beginning that the contest is not for every fan in every country and hope there’s an explanation why because LP has a WORLD-WIDE fans.

  27. Yassin on June 3, 2010 at 7:54 am

    Mike, this really unfair to the international fans. All the contests are for US residents only. You really have to fix this. All the fans from other countries should either get competitions like this of their own or have this one be available internationally. It really saddening. I don’t want to seem like a prick by saying this. I just want people to be happy. Including me.

  28. chris banisch on June 3, 2010 at 7:42 am

    I’m going to make an 8 Bit man bear pig

  29. chris banisch on June 3, 2010 at 7:34 am

    Good contest!

  30. SAwithdesperation on June 3, 2010 at 7:29 am

  31. Michazyee on June 3, 2010 at 7:28 am

    What a surprise US only..
    Good luck to the US people.. again..

  32. Lílian Rachel on June 3, 2010 at 7:20 am

    This promotion is pretty cool.
    Too bad it’s only for those who live in America!
    But I liked it.

  33. swati LP on June 3, 2010 at 7:20 am

    ohh.. can’t the ppl outside US participate? :O 😦

  34. Sergei on June 3, 2010 at 7:19 am

    Only US!? what a disappointment ((( it’s not fair, we ALL want to participate and win… hope to see some other contests international…

  35. Zamber on June 3, 2010 at 7:12 am

    It sucks that it’s US only… The next contest only for people outside the US? Should be cool! Can’t wait for the new album either… When will Blackbirds be avalible on iTunes?

  36. EvoOba on June 3, 2010 at 6:22 am

    It’s one of the dopest contests ever along with the LPA, LPL and LPT contests you have teamed up to do 😀 the only sad thing is that the 8 bit contest is US only…again 😦 I can’t really understand why most of the contests in LPN and especially in the LPU are US only…I hope this will change in the future *fingers crossed*

  37. Sinta_nyot2 on June 3, 2010 at 6:17 am

    I had one 😀
    But only for U.S ???

  38. magzimgo on June 3, 2010 at 6:13 am

    do i need to say that contest sucks because its for US-only? just like every other linkin park contest? :\

  39. orionwong on June 3, 2010 at 6:10 am

    So I can draw a cheetah on it? Its gonna be cool=D

  40. Chris on June 3, 2010 at 6:10 am

    Why is it only for US again?…

  41. Julian on June 3, 2010 at 6:07 am

    Too bad I don’t have an ipod, sounds cool though.
    By the way Mike, how’s the album going? Haven’t heard any updates nor UStream for a long time, been busy?

  42. Ana on June 3, 2010 at 6:06 am

    I did mine!

  43. LP_freakVanessa on June 3, 2010 at 6:03 am

    That´s really cool, Mike!! I do it!!

  44. Fabian on June 3, 2010 at 6:02 am
