Beamdog is giving fans a chance to put themselves in Baldur’s Gate

Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition(s) creator Beamdog is celebrating the original game’s 25th anniversary by holding a contest (opens in new tab) to turn two fans of the series into in-game character portraits drawn by O.G. BioWare artist, Mike Sass. Prospective Sword Coast inhabitants are encouraged to provide reference photos, character notes, and any other supplementary material to social@beamdog.com.

As our games’ graphical fidelity has exponentially improved over the past 20 years, we’ve lost something vital along the way: the art of RPG character portraits. As you clicked around leading a blurry sprite or chunky early 3D model in Baldur’s Gate or Neverwinter Nights, the thing that really brought them to life was the hazy, wonderful, fantasy novel cover art-style portrait in their character sheet.
