Watch the replay of our 'Stick it to the Man' Twitch streaming event!

Every weekend, WPCentral 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 3D puzzle platformer Contrast and dished out codes to eight lucky viewers.

This evening, we'll be playing the hilarious 2D platformer Stick it to the Man from Zoink! and Ripstone. We want you guys there, chatting along. So we're giving out five Xbox One codes for Stick it to the Man, plus several Playstation 4 and Steam codes! Even our unfortunate non-Xbox One owning brethren are welcome. Just follow me on, watch along, and participate in chat for your chance to win. (You can also watch the event live or after the fact, right here.)

Update: The contest has ended but you can still watch the replay of our stream!

Stick it to the Man

One day "average Joe" Ray Doewood is walking home from his job as a hard hat tester when a mysterious canister falls from the sky and knocks him into a coma. The canister unleashes a parasite that quickly makes its home in Ray, giving him strange and fantastic powers. Meanwhile, the shadowy governmental organization that lost the parasite (run by THE MAN) will stop at nothing to get it back.

Now that Ray has a funky glowing arm stretching out of his head (which nobody else can see), he'll have to learn to use it. At its most basic, the arm can grapple onto objects and pull our hero up onto new platforms. Soon Ray learns to use the arm to pull on tears in the background, revealing new areas behind them. And naturally the arm can pick up objects and use them on other objects.

Stick it to the Man Xbox One

The arm's most unique power, though, has to be reading people's minds. Ray can attach his new appendage to the brains of anyone he meets (even dead people!), hearing their innermost thoughts and desires. Many of the game's puzzles revolve around helping people based on the contents of their noggins.

If you like a good platformer with a sense of humor, grab this game and start sticking it to the man.

The Contest

We'll be streaming Stick it to the Man for one hour tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 10 game codes:

  • 5 Stick it to the Man for Xbox One
  • 3 Stick it to the Man for Playstation 4 (US only)
  • 2 Stick it to the Man for Steam

To enter, just follow me at 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.

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.
