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:
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!
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:
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!
A nice write-up on the game:
"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.'"
