Game of the Month: October 2021

The demons have been unleashed by your GotM Champions! Here are your Games of the Month for October! Speaking of champs, let's talk about that sweet sweet raffle.

Completing any of this month's winners not only nets you the @GotM Champion role and access to the #champions_lounge, enabling you to vote on next month's theme, but also enters you in a raffle with cash prizes! First prize will win a $30 gaming gift card of their choice (Google Play Store, Nintendo eshop, PSN, Xbox Live, Steam) and three runner ups will receive a $10 Google Play Store gift card! Raffle winners will be pulled at the end of the month. Additionally, each game you have completed this year also enters you in a yearly super secret, super awesome prize that will be pulled near the holiday season! We can't say too much more about that right now, but I can tell you it's gonna be pretty great. Each game you complete gives you one entry, so you can get 6 chances to win maximum each month (3 for the month and 3 for the year)! Awesome!

To gain an entry into the raffle, you must do the following: Complete the game in question, then take a picture of the end screen/credits with a handwritten time stamp somewhere in the frame of the photo. The time stamp must include your username and date, and this all gets posted in #gotm_discussion with a ping to @Rapid99. If you have any questions about the process, ping Rapid99, dm them, or post it in #gotm_discussion.

You have until the end of the month to post your pics, October 31st at 11:59pm EST. Now, let's recognize our new @GotM Champions from the month of September!

...But you'll return right?

Make sure you tune into each game's specific thread in #gotm_discussion, for discussion, tips and tricks! I'll be pinning some important stuff concerning each game in there, so come on by and chat! Also, by popular demand, and due to one of the closest, down to the wire votes we've had, we're also going to have a GotM Runners Up thread, so if there were any games that didn't quite win GotM but you still want to play them and chat about them, that's the thread you want. Do note that completing any runner up game will NOT enter you in the raffle or make you eligible for the #champions_lounge. See you all in #gotm_discussion!
