TECH: 1 Million Players for Trials HD @ E3!
A Million Players Break a Bone in Trials HD!
RedLynx’s Xbox hit smashes through a new milestone.
June 17, 2010 (Helsinki, Finland) — RedLynx (redlynx.com) announced today that Trials HD, its award-winning motorcycle stunts game for Xbox LIVE Arcade, has smashed through the one million player mark.
“Trials HD was officially announced exactly one year ago at E3. So it’s only fitting that this week, during E3, we had our one millionth player record a score on Trials‘ Global Leader Board,” said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. “It’s an exceptional achievement for any game and, obviously, we are thrilled.”
To celebrate this milestone and reward its fans, RedLynx hosted a special event called ‘Million Player Madness,’ challenging the community to guess the exact time and date when the millionth score would be recorded.
That time turned out to be June 16, 1:15 AM GMT, guessed most accurately by community member Schtee, who won a game, a flag, a hoodie, and a motorcycle helmet autographed by the entire Trials HD team.
Summer Special – This Week Only!
For those yet to experience the Trials mystique, the timing couldn’t be better, as they can now download the full game for only 560 Microsoft Points, an unbeatable deal that lasts through June 20 of this week only. It’s a 53% savings from the game’s normal price of 1200 Points.
Plenty of Praise
Recently, Trials HD was voted 2009’s ‘Best Overall Arcade Game’ and ‘Best Innovation’ by the Xbox LIVE players community themselves. It was also named ‘Best Game of 2009’ at the Nordic Game conference and was nominated ‘Best Downloadable Game’ at the 12th Annual Independent Games Festival.
