You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yeti (but £50K if you can prove it)

Monster Hunter World released last week. While one of us is reviewing it and can’t give their opinion on it yet, another of us is enjoying it very much on their PS4 Pro. Tracking monsters through their natural habitats, checking for any signs that they’ve come a-wandering by; following footprints, collecting feathers or mucus…

Now we’re sure that you’re aware that the monsters in the game aren’t real. Or are they?!

They aren’t. Just to clarify.

However, Capcom aren’t missing a beat. Enter this promotional opportunity with Jon Downes, a cryptozoologist and director of The Centre for Fortean Zoology. Being that both Downes and Capcom are sort of in the same business, monster hunting, it seems a match made in Heaven. Or whatever the cryptozoology version of Heaven is.

Cryptozoology isn’t exactly a booming business, so in order to track down some new clues and entice a new generation of cryptozoologists, a cash prize of £50,000 is being offered as a reward for substantial evidence towards one of the top ten cryptozoological beasties. This top ten list has all the main ones that come to mind and some that really don’t. Cornish Owlman? Why no Wendigos?

Ah well. Here are some terms and conditions taken directly from the promotion:

The Real Life Monster Hunter bounty will open for entries on 30th January, 2018 and close on 30th June, 2018. For more information or to submit evidence of a monster and be in with the chance of winning the £50,000 reward, please contact

I enjoy playing games and I enjoy writing things, so I decided to combine the two. I do bits here and there and have a twitter that mainly just announces things I've done as my life revolves around very little that is truly interesting.
