Competition: Win A Free Copy Of The Escapists

The Escapists is an action-RPG in which you level skills and craft items towards the goal of escaping prison. Sound like your thing? We’ve got 330 copies of the game to give away ahead of the release of The Escapists Meets The Walking Dead, and you can win one by stepping below.

This isn’t first-come, first-served. Instead, you enter into a raffle by popping your name and email address into the box below. (Your email address won’t be used for anything but contacting you with your key should you win).

Completing any further actions then unlocks extra entries, giving you more than one chance at receiving a code when the winners are announced. The actions are: following us on Twitter for 10 extra entries, subscribing to our YouTube channel for five extra entries, or visiting our Facebook page for five extra entries. Hit ‘Continue’ after performing each of those actions for those entries to be confirmed.

This competition will end at 4pm on Monday 5th. At that point, winners will be selected and contacted with their key that same day. (This email may come addressed from Gamer Network; fear not, that’s us.)

Have at it:

    That Gleam thing always makes me feel nervous, simply because of the stupid Twitter App.

    Facebook? Fine. Just requires a Like.
    YouTube? Same. Okay.
    Twitter? Keeps trying to add their App, that can Follow/Post on your behalf? GTFO.

    The funny thing is, it must be some cookie oddity, because once you’ve been, if you refresh the page, just following RPS is enough for it.

    Will be interesting to see how relevant this game stays with Prison Architects new Escape mode. This is obviously more in depth and takes longer, but you can’t deny PA’s appeal.

    Umm… No, I’ll wait until it’s in a bundle, or on a decent sale.

    An email address is 10 times less worth while than a twitter follow, stands to reason I guess, with data analytics being what they are.

    This game looks like minecraft. I am very interested to play it but I don’t want to pay for it. Something similar that I played recently is cube runner. Everything is at low resolution and a standard design, which I see goes very well among web players. So I think this is the future of games, clear, nice and easy to play…

    Yah, that twitter part of Gleam is broken. I click, it says ” Or

    Connect your Twitter account to perform/verify Twitter actions in 1 click.
    We will not post without your permission.”

    That’s it. I’d allow an app to access my shit because I can turn around and just revoke access through the settings menu. I already follow this on twitter so I am a bit miffed.
