by on January 31, 2011

Microsoft is feeling all nautical at the moment, what with their deal of the week being the enjoyable Xbox LIVE Arcade survival-adventure game Hydrophobia Pure listed at half price – and to really mark the occasion in style, they will be partnering with the developers of the game – Dark Energy Digital – to put on a major competition which will be open to any Xbox LIVE members downloading the discounted title.

This means that anyone over the age of 18 who purchases and downloads Hydrophobia Pure will obtain an entry into a competiton. The grand prize for this contest will be worth $4500, whereby if the winner lives in the U.S. they will be able to choose a cruise vacation to a total value (including spending money) of $4500 – or UK residents will be able to select a beach vacation to a value of $3,000 with a further $1500 to cover any applicable taxes and fees. There will be a further 5 runner-up prizes of 4,000 Microsoft Points each – so they can pick from any of the items featured on the LIVE Marketplace.

Pete Jones, Joint Creative Director at Dark Energy Digital adds that “there has never been a better time to dive in and experience the changes we have made to Hydrophobia – AND the sweepstake makes this a perfect storm.” We at Godisageek.com found the game to be worth checking out – and the title update certainly makes it more accessible ofr those who may have been put off by the flaws of the original release.

Hydrophobia Pure is available on Xbox LIVE Arcade and will be half price at only 400 Microsoft Points from January 31st to February 6th – exclusively for Xbox LIVE Gold members.
