Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch for 1-2 hours and gives out free games to the cool people who join us during the stream. It's like a live podcast, only you also get to watch a game while chatting with our awesome readers and viewers!

Tonight at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific, 2am GMT), we'll be playing Limbo from Danish developer Playdead. Limbo is a dark and stylish puzzle platform that made waves on Xbox 360 before eventually launching on Xbox One. Not only will be giving out free copies of Limbo for Xbox One and Steam, we'll also be joined in chat by a member of the game's development studio!

Update: The stream has ended. Read on for the YouTube replay video to see Paul playing Limbo as a member of Playdead answers viewer questions, plus the list of contest winners!
