Exile's End | contest

As a lifetime gamer, it doesn’t take much to get me to sit down and play a game, but incentives are certainly welcome. Thus, when I heard that Marvelous is hosting a contest and offering Steam gift cards up to $500, I was intrigued. Here’s the catch. They are only giving away gift cards to those who buy their new game Exile’s End on Steam and then try Survival Mode. By netting the highest score, winners will be eligible for a gift card. The contest will last until 12AM GMT November 28th, so spend some time this weekend.

Pretty sweet deal, right? It gets even better though, since Exile’s End is a beautiful platformer with music by Keiji Yamagishi, art by staff with a hand in Secret of Mana, Mother 3 and other classics and NES-Style cutscenes by OPUS. Though they clearly say the game is not a Metroidvania, it certainly looks like one, and I couldn’t be happier. It is atmospheric, dark and menacing, and a bargain at only $9.99. If you’re interested, go get yourself a copy of the game, plug in, and you can post pictures of your high score in the comments section. What better incentive for a gamer than a chance to get more games for free?
