You Will Die, But You Might Also Win 10,000 Microsoft Points

In a game where the enemy grows more powerful with each level, you're destined to die, but survive long enough in Dead Pixel Arcade's Xbox Live Indie game You Will Die and you might posthumously score 10,000 Microsoft points.

You Will Die is a twin stick shooter in which your enemies grow progressively stronger the longer you play, until you finally succumb to their overwhelming force. It's also the first Xbox Live Indie title to be included on the scoreboards of video game record keeper Twin Galaxies, and Dead Pixel Arcade is celebrating by offering up 10,000 Microsoft points to the player with the top score come August 1. That's $US125 worth of downloadable content.

The second place winner takes home a paltry 1600 points, while third place will score you 400 points, enough to buy a theme or a couple sets of gamer pics.

You will die is available right now on the Xbox Live Marketplace for a mere 80 Microsoft points, a small price to pay to die horribly again and again.

    I don't know why Kotaku AU even bothers publishing this sort of news - particularly not with a note reminding us that Microsoft couldn't care less about Australian gamers and therefore won't bother letting us access the "indie" channel.

    If you're going to publish it here, please at least include a note that you've emailed MS and asked them when they're going to bother giving us access.

    What Jeremy said.

    Yeah I have to agree, surely it couldn't be that hard to add a note on here guys? Or not run the story? It does kind of get our hopes up and then just disappoint us.
