Contest: Xotic Steam Giveaway


Last year we reviewed PC game Xotic, WXP Games’ intriguing attempt at fusing first-person shooter gameplay with a scoring system and time trial mentality similar to an arcade game. It showed flashes of brilliant fun, but didn’t quite nail the concept as well as it could have. However, the game has been updated substantially since then, receiving new modes, gameplay tweaks, graphics options, tutorials, DLC levels and more. It’s a unique indie title well worth a look (it’s also since been released on XBLA too).

For three of you, we’re going to help make that happen for free. Yep, we’ve got codes to give away. Come sign up for a chance to grab one!

Here are the contest details:

Prize: 3 Steam download codes for Xotic. Game valued at $9.99.
