Up to four dinosaurs need your help to escape the apocalypse. An entire galaxy is threatened by vampires who know their way around a faster-than-light drive. Save the day (twice), all for free.
PixelJam is giving away Dino Run SE and Space Rubbish, along with music from both games for absolutely nothing, until tomorrow. The offer was originally going to end today, but it’s been extended by 24 hours.
Still, there’s no time to think, just do.
If you’ve always wanted to run continuously from left-to-right as a prehistoric creature, then Dino Run SE is the game for you. As you might have guessed from the last two letters, it’s a special edition. Included is everything you need to host and play in multiplayer (so you and three of your friends can run across the screen together, fleeing meteorites and leaping into bubbling volcanoes), as well as full-screen support and a freaky mode called “Planet D”.
Space Rubbish has nothing at all to do with dinosaurs, and a lot to do with space, trading and slaying interstellar energy-sucking vampires. It’s quite beautiful, in a retro-arcade-meets-the-undead kind of way, and should help satiate your hunger for the next Elite, should David Braben ever actually release it (as a top-down Asteroids clone).
There are a few small hoops to jump through to take advantage of this delicious deal. First, visit the DinoRubbish MegaBundle on the PixelJam website. Look for the link that says “Buy Now” and click it. You’ll be presented with checkout options, but what you want to do is enter “0” in the “Name your price” box. The checkout options will be replaced with prompts asking for your email address, location and postcode. Once you’ve typed these in, hit OK.
Note that by doing this, you will be signed you up to their newsletter. Also, they need the address to send you a link to your FREE GAMES.
It’s then a matter of cracking open your email client, be it desktop or web-based, locating the email and clicking the link. A 199MB download will be offered to you, which includes 11 music tracks from Dino Run SE and Space Rubbish, along with ZIPs of the games.
