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!
When a young boy discovers his sister has gone missing, he sets out on a journey to find her. Unfortunately for him, the world of Limbo is dark and filled with deadly traps that can kill him in gruesome ways.
Limbo's puzzles require plenty of trial and error, but the game's striking black and white art style and fascinating world will keep players enthralled throughout the adventure. Join us on Twitch tonight to see why Limbo was such a big hit and possibly win a copy of your own!
- LIMBO – Xbox One – 212.46 MB – $9.99 – Xbox Store
- LIMBO – Xbox 360 – 118 MB – $9.99 – Xbox Store
- LIMBO – Windows, Mac, and Linux – $9.99 – Steam Link
We'll be streaming Limbo for 90 minutes tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific, 2am GMT). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 15 game codes:
- 10 for Xbox One
- 5 for Steam
To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch (making sure to enable email notifications!) 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!
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, be sure to check our schedule and come back for more!
How to watch Twitch livestreams
What's the best way to experience Twitch? The Twitch website on your PC or Mac web browser. If you don't have or prefer not to use a computer, you can get the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Xbox 360 Twitch apps and watch from the comfort of your couch. Android and iOS both have official and unofficial Twitch apps to choose from as well.
On Windows Phone, you'll have to grab an unofficial app. There are several to choose from, each with different strengths and weaknesses. Only one app lets you search directly for our channel, though. If you use the others you'll have to find and follow us from a web browser first. Read the roundup to learn more!
