Christmas Giveaway! Win Your Choice: Death Rally (Remastered) or Alan Wake's American Nightmare [Steam]

With the 25th creeping closer, it's time for our Christmas giveaway! 

Usually for our Christmas giveaway, the game has been pre-chosen, this year I thought it would be fun to do something a little different. So, we have a copy of Death Rally (2011/12), the remastered adrenaline-packed racing title. We also have a copy of Alan Wake's American Nightmare, one of my all-time favourite games. The winner will be able to pick which one out of the two they would like to have.

The Prize

The prize is a copy of the remastered 2011/2012 edition of Death Rally (retail price €9.99) or Alan Wake's American Nightmare (retail price €9.99). Both games have been bought through Steam.

Official Synopsis for Death Rally:
Load your guns, start your engines...THE CLASSIC IS BACK! Brought to you from Remedy, renowned developers of Max Payne and Alan Wake, Remedy's Death Rally classic top down racer is back, stronger and more vicious than ever.

This is no Sunday Drive. This is Death Rally, so be prepared to be blown away, literally. Make a run for the finish line with a trail of burnt rubber and spent brass behind you..along with the flaming wreckage of any fool dumb enough to get in your way.

The gameplay is addictive, intense, explosive fun! Win races, upgrade your cars and weapons to defeat incredible boss drivers to beat the story mode. Join the multiplayer! lock and load and enter the Death Rally, humiliate and destroy your opponents or sabotage their race. You choose how you win, NO TRICK IS TOO DIRTY!

Official Synopsis for Alan Wake's American Nightmare:

In this brand new standalone experience, Alan Wake fights the herald of darkness, the evil Mr. Scratch! A thrilling new storyline, hordes of creepy enemies, serious firepower and beautiful Arizona locations, combined with a fun and challenging new game mode make this a must for Alan Wake veterans, and the perfect jumping on point for new players!
