Dead Star Steam Early Access Code Giveaway

deadstarlogo.jpg

Greetings my fellow Red Teamers! PAX South wrapped up yesterday and I know not everyone has the time or resources to make it to events like this, so I have a little something for those that weren't able to attend. Dead Star is a new twin-stick multiplayer space shooter that I had a blast (bad pun) playing at the convention this past weekend and I figure there are at least a couple of you out there who will enjoy it as much as I did.

I have two codes for those of you who meet the requirements of the giveaway:

  • Your rig must be posted in the rig showcase and you must have a Radeon GPU.
  • Like Dead Star on Facebook.
  • Follow Dead Star on Twitter.
  • Tweet a photo of your rig and describe your excitement for playing DeadStar on AMD Radeon: "Stoked for @deadstargame on my @AMDRadeon!" for example.
  • Link to your tweet here in a reply to confirm your entry.

Keep in mind that this game is designed for a twin-stick controller so you should really have one. I've found a cheap used XBox 360 controller works quite well.

Entry will close Friday 2/5 at midnight CST. I'll pick the two winners at random and announce them Monday 2/8 or earlier. Good luck!

The game looks awesome, reminds me of an old game I used to play called Subspace continuum

I missed that one, but the farming is similar to Sinistar, But that is definitely showing my age.

There are a bunch of different ships/weapon types in this however, and even NPC ship control, which can be really helpful!

A couple other things:

  • The codes are also redeemable on PS4.

          and

  • The game is crossplay! PS4 and PC are able to play online together. w00t!

This finally made me fill out the rig form (apart from the fact that last time i tried the form was broken). I've been watching this game a little bit (joined their forums and everything) and it seems pretty nice, reminds me of what could have been a modern day Armada (from dreamcast), one of my favorite games. Thanks for the contest!

Awesome! The odds are definitely in your favor to win one of those codes at this point.

Re: Dead Star Steam Early Access Code Giveaway

A nice write-up on the game:

Armature's 'Dead Star' on PS4 & PC Is So Good It Sheds a Positive Light on MOBA Mechanics

"Through an unholy marriage between twin-shooter and MOBA mechanics, and a willingness to make the game worth playing (rather than mired in micro-transactions), Armature Studios may have cracked the code, so to speak. I have dabbled in a half dozen different MOBAs, and I've had some specific popular MOBAs explained to me in full. Nothing has really ever taken hold beyond maybe a few interesting moments.

That changed with 'Dead Star.'"
