Show your honey you care by playing videogames and winning meat

Straight from the files of "strange cross-promotions" comes this announcement from Twisted Pixel that starting on Valentine's Day and running to February 27th, the third Ms. Splosion Man challenge will force participants to break 33 panes of glass.  The five fastest times in this challenge will win, I **** you not, an Omaha Steak Filet prize pack.

I've long suspected that there's no group of people weirder or more twisted than those individual that work in the marketing departments for videogame publishers and developers, and contests like this one only re-enforce such notions.  I like steak as much as the next non-vegan, but the last thing I think about when I think of videogames is slabs of raw meat.  No judgement, however, as my simple pea-mind probably just isn't capable of operating on such an enlightened level.

For full details and a million Omaha Steak links, follow the jump.



Ms. Splosion Man Unveils The “Shoot The Glass” Challenge

TMS Challenge Awards Omaha Steak Prize Pack


Feb 13th, 2012 - Austin, TX - Twisted Pixel announces the 3rd in a series of themed challenges for Ms. Splosion Man beginning on Valentines day. The challenge shows up in the opening menu of the main game, but only for the duration of the contest, which runs February 14th - 27th. Twisted Pixel has teamed up with Omaha Steaks for a big meaty challenge sure to make your mouth water.

In this challenge there are 33 panes of glass that taunt you with their fiendish transparentness. Can you find and break them all? Each one missed will add 10 seconds to the finish time, so players need to keep a sharp eye! Since breaking glass doesn’t satiate the need for sploding meats, the fine folks at Omaha Steaks have graciously offered to supply the prize for this challenge. The five (5) fastest U.S. times on the leaderboard by end of day February, 27th will win an Omaha Steak Filet prize pack!

Everyone can play, but U.S. participants are only eligible to win the steaks due to edible goods shipping regulations. For more information on the fine products from Omaha Steaks, please visit www.omahasteaks.com and follow via twitter @OmahaSteaks
