Giveaway: 30 copies of Shadow Complex (X360)


Last week at Microsoft TechEd Australia I got my hands on thirty giant playing cards. And yes, it’s as fun as it looks. The cards of course are redeemable XBOX Live Game Downloads for the much-raved XBOX 360 game Shadow Complex, a 2.5D side-scroller that combines the eye-candy of the Unreal 3 engine and the nostalgia of Contra. What a sweet combination it is.

Although as much as I’d like to own thirty XBOX 360s, I don’t, which means I’m giving all these copies of Shadow Complex away to thirty (30) lucky gamers. To keep things simple, just submit your name and email address here within the next 48 hours (ends 17 Sept Australian Eastern Standards Time).

The competition is open to anyone around the world (still looking at you Zune) who has an internet-connected XBOX 360 (game is a 850MB download).

Now that’s not too complex, is it? πŸ˜‰

Update: Entries closed with over 600 submissions. Winners should be receiving a code in their email in the next couple of days – its a painful process tearing the tabs off each card. (I’ll also be trying to score more download codes to make the odds a little better)

  2. The last page of the form says “Thanks”… well I say “Thank YOU” to let us worldwide gamers try our luck :)

  3. Hey guys I would love to have a copy of this game, I have wanted to play it forever. 2.5 D looks like a such a great concept. I hope I can finally score a copy, Thanks guys.

  4. Nice, ya I’m also (looking at you zune)
    I love contests that aren’t (“available to all residents of the 50 States only” RAGE!
    Oh my gamertag is “JQ 117”
    ( stands for Jeffrey “my 1st name” & Quadra “combo of Quad, I like things with 4 wheels, & Ra the first evil bad guy I was old enough to understand from the original movie “Stargate” & 117 from Halo 1 that brought me to the Xbox gaming system, & I love the number 7 “I’m lookin at you Windows 7 πŸ˜› ” )

  5. Heh, I went with 4/5 too – I figure if anyone wanted it bad enough to rate it 5 – they would have bought it already :)

    I want it, but I have a lot I’m already playing through and thought I’d wait for a discount – free would be fantastic.

  6. I think we all want it! We are 30 yet to comment. That’s it… Pity I start to have the ROD symptoms now. Nice graphic artefacts!

  7. I also won and wanted to say thank you. Unfortunately, I was not able to redeem the code, but I already mailed the XBox live support to investigate the problem.

  8. I was also lucky enough to win a key. Also received an error when submitting my key.. “There is a problem with the offer associated with this code.” Any one else get the same error?
