Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game on Twitch for one hour and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. Last week, we streamed Zombie Driver: Ultimate Edition and dished out codes to seven lucky viewers.
Tonight at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific), we'll be playing Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition from The Digital Lounge. We want you guys there, chatting along. So we're giving out three Xbox One codes for Another World, plus several Playstation 4 and WiiU codes! Even our unfortunate non-Xbox One owning brethren are welcome.
Update: I managed to beat the game and earn all the Achievements I needed during the stream! Thanks for your support, everybody. Keep reading to check out the replay and list of winners.
Another World (aka Out of This World)
Another World stars Lester Knight Chaykin, a physicist whose late-night experiment goes terribly awry. Lester awakens in a strange and hostile alien world where he is beset by tentacled monsters, slugs, and other carnivorous creatures. Soon the planet's sentient aliens capture and imprison Lester along with another alien known as "Buddy." Lester and Buddy must work together to escape the prison complex and their pursuers.
Technically Another World is a platformer. Lester can kick, run, and jump on his own. Eventually he discovers a pistol which can fire deadly beams or create an energy shield, depending on how long the player holds the fire button. Don't expect much emphasis on platforming. Solving puzzles and figuring out how to survive dangerous enemy encounters are the real meat of the game.
The 20th Anniversary Edition of Another World includes a few enhancements to make it more enjoyable for Xbox One players. These include the choice between original and high resolution graphics, which can be toggled at any time. Players can also switch between three different soundtracks, including the fantastic Mega CD version.
If you enjoy classic adventure games (or just want some fast and fairly easy Achievements), don't miss Another World. See our full review for more details!

We'll be streaming Another World for one hour tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 8 game codes:
- 3 for Xbox One
- 1 for Playstation 4 (US)

- 2 for WiiU (US)
- 1 for WiiU (Europe)
To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. No code begging!
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
I'll be available for a few minutes before and after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If you enjoy the stream, I'd love for you to tune in to future streams. For now, we'll do one every weekend, with a few non-contest streams throughout the week.
More Halo streams coming
