Video Games Pixel Art with M&Ms Contest #FueledByMM
Gaming with M Pixel Art Contest
Here’s the deal: to celebrate the launch of Forza 5, M&Ms is holding a Gaming with M Pixel Art Contest. The contest runs December 4th – December 18th. To enter, all you need to do is create a video game and/or racing-themed pixel art image or character, using M&Ms. Then, snap a picture of your M&M pixel art, and upload it to Instagram, using the hashtag #FueledByMM. One winner will be chosen at random, so don’t by shy with your creations. This is all about the fun of using M&Ms to make pixel art!
Oh, did I forget to mention the prize? Great news, fellow gamers: the lucky winner will be taking home a new Xbox One and Gaming is Better with M pack, including a copy of the Forza 5 game and a bag of M&Ms to enjoy while playing it.
Like I said, when I found out about the Gaming with M Pixel Art Contest, I got excited. I immediately headed to Walmart and picked up a giant bag of M&Ms to work with. I knew I wanted get retro with my pixel art creations, so all that was left was to decide on the characters to focus on and then to recreate them, using my M&Ms. In the end, I went with…
Link from Legend of Zelda
Super Mario with Fire Flower
I can honestly say this was the most fun I’ve ever had with a contest, and I highly recommend entering. You get to create awesome pixel art, have a shot at winning an Xbox One with Forza 5, and you get to eat your art when you’re finished. Win, win, and win.
Speaking of win, M&Ms is sweetening (no pun intended) the experience with their Buy, Snap, Redeem deal. Here’s how it works:
- Buy a copy of Forza 5 and any participating M&Ms products
- Snap a photo of your entire receipt, showing both products
- Text the photo to 811811, along with the word M&M
- You’ll receive a text back, with a reward code valid for a $10 eGift card to Walmart
You can get all the details and view the participating products at the Better with M Offer website.
