Suspense thriller Alan Wake is one of the year’s best games. To celebrate, Microsoft has given us an Xbox 360 console and three copies of the game. So we’re giving them to you.
UPDATE: This competition is now closed.
One winner will take home Alan Wake and an Xbox 360 Elite console (which, along with a 120GB hard drive, also comes bundled with Forza 3 and Halo 3: ODST) while two runners-up will each score a copy of the game.
How do you enter?
You know how Alan Wake is a writer? Well, you’re going to have to dazzle us with your literary skills in order to win.
Throughout the game, Wake stumbles upon page after page of a manuscript from a novel he can’t remember writing. Yet the manuscript has his name on it, it’s all about him, and it describes events that have happened to him – or are just about to happen. Spooky!
In the comments below, we want you to write a page from a horror/suspense/thriller novel. It doesn’t have to be about Alan Wake. It can be about anything you like. The cleverest, creepiest and most creative entries will win.
Keep it short. The manuscript pages in Alan Wake are never longer than 100 words. So that’s your guide. Multiple entries are absolutely forbidden. And you’ve got until midnight Friday, June 4 to get your entry in.
