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. Last week, we streamed Defense Grid 2 and Funk of Titans and dished out codes to 12 lucky viewers.
Tonight, we'll be playing Flockers from Team17. Flockers is a humorous puzzle game starring hordes of hapless sheep. We want you guys there, chatting along. So we're giving out six Xbox One codes, plus several Playstation 4 and Steam codes!
Update: The stream has ended and the prizes are gone. Thanks to everyone who joined us - keep reading to see the winners and a full replay of the stream!
For ten years, all of Team17's games were either sequels or remakes to past hits like Worms. Then Flockers came along last year. Flockers is the first new IP to come from the studio in all that time, although technically it's a spin-off of the Worms series. This one is a puzzle game with 60 levels to test players' wits.
The goal in Flockers is to safely herd a group of mindless sheep to each level's exit. You'll need to instill certain sheep with abilities like building walls or staircases in order to help the endlessly advancing profession avoid amusingly grim deaths (gore can be turned off in the options menu).
If that sounds like the classic game Lemmings, it is! Sony owns the Lemmings property so we'll never have a true Lemmings on Xbox, but Team17 has given us the next best thing.
- Flockers – Xbox One – 6 GB – $24.99 – Xbox.com Link
We'll be streaming Flockers for one hour tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 12 Flockers game codes:
- 6 Xbox One codes
- 3 Playstation 4 codes (US)
- 3 Steam codes
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.
