Yesterday, we published an interview with the creators of the short film Reboot, talking about their alternate reality game. They have sponsored a contest just for Daily Dead readers, in which you can win multiple prizes including The Walking Dead Season 1 on DVD.

How to Enter: We're going to give you two separate ways to win:


1. Play the Alternate Reality Game:

For those unfamiliar with these types of games, there are hidden clues within the Reboot trailer, which will allow you to unlock and uncover new challenges online. This will require some digging and different computer skills, but the Daily Dead reader that makes it the furthest will win The Walking Dead Season 1 on DVD.

To get started, all you need to do is watch the Reboot trailer here:

Then, contact the creators of the film on email/Facebook/Twitter regarding any clues you find. The further you get through the alternate reality game, the better chance you have of winning. Make sure to let them know that you are a Daily Dead reader when contacting them. Links can be found on their official website:

Readers will get points based on what they find. The reader with the most points will win the grand prize, which includes The Walking Dead Season 1 on DVD:

Point Breakdown:

  • Level 1 = 500 (Just taking part and playing the game)
  • Level 2= 1,000
  • Level 3 = 1,500
  • Level 4 = 2,000
  • Clues the user finds or hidden messages are worth: 100 points each
