BrainPipe Contest - 2 Winners will be chosen!
BrainPipe is not only the winner of the Independent Game Festival 2009's Excellence in Audio award but also a great way to get mindfreaked!

The game's stunning audio and abstract visuals will be sure to keep any PC/Mac gamer looking for a unique trippy arcade experience entertained. Therefore, I'm glad to announce that we have two digital copies* to give away!

Get the FREE Windows / Mac demo! Who's Criss Angel? A "magician/illusionist" who Robot Chicken was parodying above...

In order to gain an entry just do the following:

Reply to this thread stating either a song that you think best describes the game followed by a brief reason as to why (a sentence or a few words would be fine) OR a song that describes how you feel when you play BrainPipe (happy, frustrated etc.) followed by a brief reason as well. The winners will be chosen via a randomizer, however, your entry must still show some effort.

Examples (may not be used as entries):

A) Disturbed - Stupify. The following snippet from the lyrics describe going through the "tunnels" as they can become narrow once you pass through those gate-like things and once you start moving super fast it feels like the thing is mocking you as you tend to crash all over the place (at least I do, heh).

Why, do you like playing around with
My, narrow scope of reality
I, can feel it all start slipping

B) Powerman 5000 - Bombshell. It feels like I'm a bomb!

^ Lyric snippets are not required but help especially if the song is not well-known. Be sure to only include a snippet though rather than full lyrics. Also, as you can see, the second one was a lot shorter and is still allowed as long as it makes sense/shows some creativity. In addition, if possible provide a link to a YouTube video or a non-download link to the song (unless the song is legally "free" then a DL link may be posted).

* Each winner will get to choose between the PC/Mac version (you'll only get one, not both). Also, the prize will be given in the form of a coupon code which once redeemed, will allow you to get the game from the official store for free. No credit card required, only a valid e-mail address :P

The game currently cost $14.99 if purchased from the official website. You can find more info about the game including screenshots HERE.

Rules & regulations:

- Your entry must be submitted by August 22, 2009 at 11:59 PM US EST unless the deadline is extended, if that's the case, then you must have the entry in by that new date.
- Since this particular contest requires each entry to be unique, if you accidentally choose the same song as someone else you may pick another song as long as the deadline has not passed. I'll try to keep an up to date list of all the entries in this post to help prevent this from happening.
- Every non-banned member with at least 3 non-spam forum posts can enter this contest, staff included (except administrators).
- The winner will be notified via PM and will have 48 hours to redeem their prize. If the prize is not redeemed within that period, it will be given away to another participant. The same restrictions will apply to the next participant as well.
- While the winner will not be judged on effort, putting ZERO or very little effort into your entry will result in it being dismissed so do put some effort into it!
- Prizes may NOT be exchanged for cash or anything else. However, in the event that you do win and no longer wish to redeem the prize you may give it to another user on the site or if you don't have anyone in mind you can "donate" the prize back and another winner will be chosen instead.
- Cheating attempts, such as creating two accounts to increase the chances of winning will result not only in contest disqualification but also a permanent ban, so don't do it! You can always buy the game if you don't win or tough it out with the free demo until you get the cash to do so.

Also, to make things a little more interesting, if you manage to get over 5000 points in the demo, post a screenshot of it and I'll give you 100 PWN$. Be sure to use your forum username when writing your name in the scoreboard though so I can verify that it was actually you. As a reminder, the demo can be found HERE.

Specials thanks to Shrapnel Games for making this possible as well as Digital Eel for creating this awesome game.

If you have any doubts or questions about the information above, let me know!

RE: BrainPipe Contest - 2 Winners will be chosen!
A Hard-Earned Thirts Needs A Big Cold Beer, But I Drink To Get Pissed - TISM, the song is totally trippy and hyper. It makes almost no sense when listening to it but it gets you pumped anyway and is really catchy, just like the game. During the game you have absolutely no idea why your traveling through trippy tubes yet you do anyway, and you have loads of fun doing it.

Down in a hole, feelin so small - the door things are small

But my wings have been so denied - when you die

As for my entry, I might withhold it for now until I think of the right way to explain the lyrics...

As for the PWN$100, I'll be taking that as well:

RE: BrainPipe Contest - 2 Winners will be chosen!
For my song choice it is a quite bizarre but I have had this song on while I play BrainPipe and it just suits it.

BMTH - Chelsea Smile

This song starts off fast right off the bat, just like Difficulty level 2 (the fastest you can go on the demo). As you move down this Tube of Multicolors and obstacles coming at you with speed so unmatchable to your reflexes, it gets you pumped. At my 2nd favorite part of the song 2:30+ you going down the pipes of this game is just so well matched, as you speed up the song can do but only one ask, speed up with you. In this situation you can go only one way, and that is forward, this game racing your heartbeat as you try to get past the unwinnable obstacles that are in your way, but you just can't, and that's why this song helps me out, the faster the song the better. Why would you want to listen to some slow techno song, or some oldschool metal? Get your head in the game, and turn this song on, trust me if you really try you can Beat Donovan.

Once again I choose BMTH's Chelsea Smile, and it is not a choice that can be regretted.

Update - I tried BP without dicking around, and I got the score under "JoeGoddamnSchmo" and yes I did have the Chelsea Smile on

Well there's my score. [Just one point ahead that JFK /o/]

Here's my song pick. [Dunno what it's actually for] But anyways:


Porcupine Tree - Arriving Somewhere But Not Here
The lyrics on that song are just pretty amazing [as expected from PT] and the song is more than those words an instrumental piece and it lasts actually about 12 mins.
It's beautiful, mysterious and even little freaky at the same time. And I think it could kinda fit in that games mood.

//Just got even higher score. ;o
