The Darkness competition winners announced

The Darkness competition winners announced

The Darkness is an awesome and dark FPS and we're giving away copies of the game to five lucky readers.

That's it! No more! The lines are closed and we aren't opening any more email - the competition is closed and we're announcing the winners.

To celebrate the release of The Darkness on the Xbox 360, we teamed up with 2K Games and Starbreeze Studios to provide bit-tech readers with a chance to win some decent swag - a copy of The Darkness on Xbox 360 and a limited edition T-shirt designed by the Joystick Junkies. We had five of each to give away to the community.

We asked you a simple question; the name of the main character's mobster uncle in the game, and we had a massive number of correct entries to choose five winners from - so if you aren't one of the lucky few then don't feel to bad about it.

So, without further ado, here are the forum names of the lucky quintet;

Almightyrastus
SkunkMonkey
StephenK
MikeUK2004
Edvuld


Prizes will be winging their way over to the above shortly.

If you weren't one of the winners this time, then feel free to go to the forums and hurl abuse at those mentioned above and, if you were a winner, feel free to go boast about it in the competition thread.

Sounds like the darkness is quite good. I'll buy it if its worth competitioning for it.

I have been looking for a demo but they still have not put one out on xbox live. :( I do want to try it.

It's an absolutely superb Single player game. Multiplayer was not designed well.
Blademrk 15th July 2007, 22:21 Quote
Haven't tried multiplayer yet, Single player was ace though.
trivia:the character the competition is asking for was voiced by Dwight "Howling Mad Murdock" Schultz

Only Europeans?! Come on, to Canada!

Bit-tech should relocate to Canada. That would be pretty shibby. Don't worry, you get used to the cold.

Wohooo. As I was leaving this morning the postman caught me and had in his hand my parcel from 2K Games. Those that are interested the T-Shirt is Long Sleeved and green with Darkness across the chest in its font. Also on the back across the shoulder blades are a few symbols. Downer is its Size M and since I moved to Sheffield I becam a right fat B*****d and now a size XXL.

Nevermind its free so cant complain, just have to diet :). As soon as I get hom from work im playing the Game and might take a picture of the T-Shirt.

Thanks again Bit-tech for the great compo and to 2K Games for the prizes.

Well, we stopped using normal mail a year ago. Everyone uses E-mail. Packages and larger parcels get delivered once a week if you're lucky :/

It would be strange if we had no post. I get excited when I get mail. Sad I know.
