To celebrate the release of the Braid theme, I wanted to give away a bunch of copies of the theme for free. But Microsoft says I can’t do that. However, I am able to give out free copies of the game itself, and I have about 20 spares.
Let’s have a Name That Game competition. Posted below are pieces of screenshots from 10 games. Correctly identify each game!
The first 20 people who mail firstname.lastname@example.org with all the correct answers will each win a code for a free copy of Braid on the Xbox 360. The competition ends as soon as all the free copies are gone, or at 11:59pm GMT on March 23, 2009 — whichever comes first. (My bet is that at least one person gets them all within a day… we’ll see!)
If the competition ends without all the free copies having been given away, they will go to the people who got the most right answers. So even if you can’t figure them all out, send in what you’ve got — you still might win.
I reserve the right to deny people who look like they are spamming the answers to win multiple copies, or something.
The clues are after the fold. Update: The contest is now over. See this posting for the answers.
Here are the clues:
