It’s that time again! The second pack of new N+ levels for N+ XBLA will be out on Wednesday September 10, and that means we’ve got another contesque for you.
The contesque is open to everyone, world-wide. It closes September 10 at 9am EST. That means it will be open for one week only, so get those submissions in fast! Only one per person, so make sure it’s your best guess. The three entrants with the most correct guesses will each receive a copy of N+ for XBLA, plus a new N+ button and N+ sticker by mail (to see what those look like, check out the last picture in any listing in our merch shop) and the person with the most correct guesses will also receive a swanky, super-rare N+ tshirt donated by Klei Entertainment, who had them printed up for PAX.
We’ve decided to again celebrate the unique level names you’ll find in N+ XBLA. Which 7 of the following 28 are NOT referenced in levelpack 2?
01. 30 Rock
02. Arrested Development
03. Barkley, Shut up and Jam: Gaiden
05. Blade Runner
06. Cromartie High School

Email your 7 guesses to PDLC1 [at] metanetsoftware [dot] com, subject line “Contesque 2 Submission”. Be sure to include the numbers from the above list! If you are a winner, we will email you to let you know, and to get a mailing address so we can send your button and sticker.

You can see the entire list of level names for N+ XBLA here. This list will be updated with the new level names when the contesque closes.

That’s it for now — good luck, everyone!
EDIT: we’ve added new prizes and adjusted the contesque end date/time because of our site’s recent downtime — read this post for more!
p.s – note that the email address is “PDLC1” and not “PDLC2”, because the first levelpack was PDLC0, making the second one PDLC1.. it’s a bit confusing 😉
