Contest: Win Depth of Extinction for Steam


Depth of the wild

I like contests. Do you like contests? Enter our contest for Depth of Extinction.

Man, this one brings back a painful memory of my gaming youth. We had a computer when I was a kid, and my dad had a copy of one of the old X-Com games (don’t ask which one). I saw him playing it and was all like, “Yeah, this looks awesome!” So I taught myself how to boot up DOS mode on our Compaq, fired that bad boy up, and was instantly and horrendously destroyed by the aliens. I learned a powerful lesson that month of horrible trial and error — some people should just stick with Sonic games.

If you’re sitting back laughing at how hilariously bad I am at video games, then I think Depth of Extinction is just the game for you.

The world has descended into chaos, and killers machines are on the loose. Multiple factions vie for what’s left of humanity in a violent struggle for power. You are a member of the last remaining government, and it’s your job to stop the war and bring some stability to mankind. Explore a dangerous underwater world as you seek out the remaining human threats, and encounter not-so-human foes along the way.

Game features include:

  • Emergent storyline on randomly generated maps with random encounters
  • Unlock 8 unique character classes
  • Outfit your team with 115 different weapons, armor, and items
  • Fight 25 unique enemies from 5 factions
  • Perma-Death

You guys enjoy this one — I’ll be off playing Hello Kitty Island Adventure, instead. That game is a little more my speed.

Do you have an embarrassing story of a game absolutely kicking your punk ass? Share it with us in the comments below to enter. I’ve got plenty. In addition to my X-Com snafu above, I died within seconds of booting up Demon’s Souls and was scared away for good. I also have to date never actually won a match in an online fighting game. You’d think I’d be better at video games working for a video game site, huh?

We have 13 Steam keys to give out to you brave gamers. Winners will be drawn on Wednesday, October 3. Please make sure you comment using a Dtoid account, and that your account has your current email address on file. If I can’t email you, I can’t send you a free game, and you’ll have shared a shameful story for nothing.

Depth of Extinction is available now for Steam. Head over to PC Invasion for more chances to win!
