Hey everyone! As of March 25th, we've officially dropped the price of Pixel Whirled, our Xbox Live Indie Game, to 80 Microsoft Points (1$)! To celebrate this occasion, we're hosting an old timey screenshot photo contest, just like back in the pre-internet leaderboard days!
Here's how it works: After finishing the game, you unlock the 2nd Quest which contains alternate, more difficult levels. After beating the 2nd Quest, email us a digital photo of the winning screen, with you standing next to it giving a thumbs up to prove your awesomeness! Whoever sends in the highest final score will win an exclusive physical prize, which will be mailed directly to your house free of charge! Can you say swag? ;)
There is also a cheat code to unlock the 2nd Quest instantly.. at the main menu, hold down LB and RB and press Back. To access the 2nd Quest, you'll have to have unlocked the full version of the game. We would like to warn you that the 2nd Quest is not for the meek. You will have to bring your A-Game in order to beat this challenge!
If you're new to Pixel Whirled, check out the game's mini site at pixelwhirled.holmadegames.com for information, screenshots and the trailer!
