Contest: Win a code for The Sun and Moon! photo
Contest: Win a code for The Sun and Moon!
by Mr Andy Dixon

The Sun and Moon released on Steam last Friday, and to celebrate Destructoid has 10 Steam keys to hand out to lucky readers!

The Sun and Moon, the winner of Ludum Dare 29, is a platformer with a unique mechanic: you can dive into the ground. Momentum is conserved but gravity is reversed, letting you fling yourself high into the air or deep beneath the surface. The goal is always straightforward -- collect the three orbs in the level and jump into the wormhole -- but spikes, endless drops and impossible heights make this more and more difficult.

For a chance at a code, just leave a comment below! Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Sunday, November 23 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. Contest is open to anyone in the world.

Good luck! And remember, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (and double entries if you enter one manually), exclusive beta code giveaways for upcoming games, ad-free browsing, and more! And most of all, your $3 a month helps directly support the site you love. Try us out!

We've partnered with our friends at Maximum Games to give away a PC copy of Farming Simulator 15 to three lucky Dtoiders!

In the game, players are challenged to create the biggest, best farm possible.

You can play locally or online with up to 15 friends, share mods, and more. Sounds fun!

To win, just leave a comment below telling us your favorite thing about farming. Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Friday, November 21 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. Contest is open to anyone in the world.

Contest: Show us your Halloween costumes and win Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! photo
Contest: Show us your Halloween costumes and win Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Random winner is jondier. Thanks to all who participated! Those are some good looking costumes :)]

Do you like dressing up for Halloween? I sure do! In fact, just a few years ago I went as Princess Peach. I was SO beautiful. (You can see the sexy evidence above. And that's my wife playing Rock Band in the background. She was dressed as Mr Andy Dixon.)

Anyway, if you're like me, half the fun of dressing up is showing off your costumes, and the other half is winning a free game for doing so! (The third half is scaring children. The fourth half is stealing their candy as they run away.) Well it just so happens that your beloved Robot Overlord found an extra copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel hidden in his robo-shoe, and he's decided to hand it out at random to someone who posts a picture of themselves in their costume in the comments below!

Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Friday at 11:59pm Pacific to show us your stuff. All costumes are valid (meaning not just videogame-related ones), so don't feel discouraged even if you're going as Elsa from Frozen like every other f*cking little girl in the world this year. Winner will be chosen at random, but you must hold up a sign that says "DESTRUCTOID" in the picture so we know it's really you. International readers are welcome to enter, though we may ask you to pay for shipping if you win.

Double points if you dress up as Claptrap using only items you found around your house.

Good luck, and have fun!

The app wants permissions to use your social media to post (if you allow) but please note they're a legit company not super interested in spying on all your cat photos. You can revoke access, etc, like any other app that uses social connect.

by Mr Andy Dixon

Our friends at Logitech have hooked us up with an awesome set of PC gaming gear to give away to one lucky Dtoider! Up for grabs is the G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse, which features 11 programmable buttons, in-game DPI adjustment, and a dual-mode, hyper-fast scroll wheel. Oh, and it lights up really awesome blue. Because you'll no doubt need something to put your mouse on, they've also thrown in two different pads to try out: the G440 solid surface pad, and the G240 soft cloth pad. What a sweet bundle! (I'm using the G502 on a G440 myself and couldn't be happier!)

To celebrate the launch of their new game Evolution on the App Store, our friends at My.com have given us a brand new, custom-skinned iPad Mini to give away to one lucky Dtoider! Retailing at $299, this 16GB iPad comes pre-loaded with a copy of Evolution, and they're throwing in a cute 3D sandstone statue of the game's "Fido" character (seen in the gallery below) to boot. Woof!

In Evolution, players step into the boots of top human operatives on a mission to explore, chart, and uncover the dark secrets of a mysterious paradise gone silent -- the planet Utopia. Players will engage in real-time battles, dive deep into the game’s storyline, and encounter dozens of complex and identifiable characters, all while discovering what truly lies beneath the ashes of a ruined planet.

To enter the contest, just leave a comment in this thread! Limit one entry per person, and you have until next Friday, April 11 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. Contest is open to anyone with a US mailing address.

Contest: Win a Steam code for Luftrausers!
by Beccy Caine

[Update: Contest over! Winners have been PM'd their codes.]

Vlambeer's customisable dogfighter Luftrausers released last week to near-universal praise after an agonising wait in certification that may or may not have contributed to my impending mental breakdown.

One half of the indie duo, Rami Ismail, was kind enough to give me five Steam codes to celebrate the launch and while I'm reluctant to give even more people the opportunity to beat my high score, I should probably share.
