Paradox Interactive and Nitro Games have launched a competition for East India Company entitled ”Rule The Waves” in which the real-life likeness of three lucky winners will be transferred digitally into actual in-game characters, which will then feature in the final game.

To be in with a chance of being turned into a great sea-faring commander in East India Company, simply follow the instructions posted on the official forums. The winning ”Commanders” will be added to the game through an upcoming patch. For more information on the game, check out our hands-on preview.
