In order to participate, create an avatar for yourself (64 x 64px) using one of the original Chaos Engine palettes shown below (this includes the black); you do not have to use all the colours, but for obvious reasons, you need to use at least 2. You may also use transparency.

Start using your avatar and post a comment in this news post to enter. Everyone with an account made on or before September 2nd, 2013 and an avatar using one of the below palettes is eligible to enter.
 



You have until September 10th, 5pm AEST to enter. Six winners will be randomly selected from all valid entries. You may create multiple avatars, but you will only entered once.

Winners will need to have a Steam account to receive the game.

Update: You do not need to use all of the colours. Black is allowed, as is transparency.
