It's the last day of 2020 and we have one final piece of Lynx news for the year! You've seen all of the game entries from our LynXmas 2020 game jam, well the creator of one of those games is hosting a special promotional competition! RED is an action-survival game where you play RED, one of Santa's little dark elves, who must go deeper and deeper to find Santa while avoiding all the deadly mechanisms he left behind. The new RED (Green Edition) has been released and with it you can win one of a kind, unique, Atari Lynx cartridge release of the alpha version of RED.
Here's a copy of the update from the developer...
To celebrate the end of the year (and there are reasons to be happy this year in particular), we have decided not only to release a special edition of RED, but also to organize a small competition to give you a chance to win a unique edition of the alpha version of RED on a physical cartridge!
This alpha version will never be released elsewhere, not even digitally..
Well it's fairly simple: Download RED - Green Edition from this post or the main itch.io page and play it on your Lynx or in your favourite emulator. Finish the game: The goal is to finish with as least deaths as possible. This version has 24 levels only but you will die a lot eventually. Note that compared to the jam, this GREEN version features slightly modified graphics, bug fixes, and faster loading/transition between levels.
Once you are satisfied with a run, report your final score along with the validation code to this thread on AtariAge. Note that you can update your entry if needed. The winner will be the player with the least amount of deaths. In case of identical scores, the first poster will be the winner.
The competition ends on Sunday, the 17th of January, Pacific Time. I will reach out to the winner and send him the latest version of RED, on a physical cartridge with a certificate of authenticity.
Enjoy and a Happy New Year!
