Milkstone Studios, developers of XBLIG games Wool and Little Racers, released MotorHEAT onto XBLIG on February 26th, and while we’re still too glued to it to write up the review (it’s coming soonish, I promise!), we had to tear ourselves away from it long enough to let you know about a contest Milkstone is currently running.
For those that buy & play the full version of MotorHEAT, you will be entered into a draw for MSPoints cards and XBLIG game codes. The gimmick is that all profit that Milkstone makes during the contest cycles back into more prizes – if more people buy the game and play it, Milkstone buys more MSPoints cards to give away to the players. As far as winning yourself an attentive audience, I can’t see a better way to run a contest, so hat’s off to you, Milkstone. All of the details of the contest are on the Milkstone site here, but I’m really impressed at Milkstone’s interest in getting the community of gamers involved. Any gold account that plays is eligible to win, and while skill plays a small part in how many entries you get, anyone could be that lucky somebody. Try out the demo, fall in love, buy the game, win more games – it’s a cycle any indie gamer can get behind.
As for me? Well, I guess I’ll see you on the global leaderboards!
