Overlord: Raising Hell

UK's worst boss sought; PS3 and copy of the game to be won by oppressed minion concerned.

June 12th (16.00 UK TIME) – To celebrate the upcoming release of Overlord: Raising Hell on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Codemasters is calling on the hardworking employees of Britain to lift the lid on their terrible boss – with one lucky person walking away with a PlayStation 3 and a copy of the game.

Overlord: Raising Hell , sees players take control of the all-powerful Overlord, a mysterious figure who commands a group of slavish Gremlin-like creatures who do anything for their big bad boss. They’re happy to savage sheep, throw themselves into the claws on enemies and even sacrifice their lives in a bid to carry out the desires of the Overlord.

But now Codemasters wants to find out if UK employees have been forced - just like Minions - to do the bidding of their mean manager and is asking them to anonymously submit their own stories and bizarre boss experiences. Codemasters will print the weirdest and funniest on and the author of the best tale wins a PlayStation 3 and a copy of Overlord: Raising Hell .

Submitting your story couldn’t be easier, just email and then wait to see if your awful experience makes it onto the website. All anecdotes will remain anonymous, so participants can be as frank as they like about their laughable leader.

Overlord: Raising Hell is available in Europe on June 20th, for more information
