Natsume Announces Camping Mama “Write Your Own Verse” Contest

The transition from Cooking Mama to Camping Mama continues! With their Camping Mama: Outdoor Adventures game just released, Natsume is now announcing that they have a contest under way. Don’t worry, the contest doesn’t involve cooking or camping. I cannot promise that it will be free of rapping, however. Interested? Then read on!

Set to the tune of Stephen Foster’s classic “Camptown Races”, the trailer shows off many of the exciting activities featured in the game, the first in the best-selling Mama franchise that allows gamers to play as Mama’s children. Majesco is looking for creative entrants to submit their own lyrics set to the tune and theme for a chance to win their verse recut into a new version of the trailer, as well as a Camping Mama-branded “survival kit”, including everything you’ll need for your own outdoor camping adventure!

The official site for the contest is, where you can also check out the official rules, view the prizes and submit your own entry for your chance to win.

Survival kit? It’s a grim world out there, and Mama knows it. Best to be prepared! The contest sounds like a whole lot of fun, and it’s nice to see one focused on creativity. So head on over and put your musical and literary skills to the test – there’s a survival kit and some modest fame in it for you!
