The ‘For Those Who Dare’ gameplay animation challenge encourages all creatives to develop a video for ‘Fake A Smile’ through the lens of their favorite video game characters and in-game footage.

Here is how Walker explained the rules:
“Walkers, I’m forever amazed by the creativity that comes out of this community. I love seeing all of your artwork and videos and thought it’d be a great idea to hold a contest where you can showcase your best gameplay animation to my latest single, Fake A Smile. (From any game, feel free to choose your favorite and get creative!) To join, create your own storyline in game using Fake A Smile as the soundtrack and upload the video to YouTube. Use the hashtags #ForThoseWhoDare and #FakeASmile so I can be sure to find it :). I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Make sure you upload before April 2nd, 2021. There are some really cool prizes too…”
