Today marks the release of Curve Studios self described Tactical Espionage Arsehole game, Stealth Bastard Deluxe. We've managed to infiltrate their base to liberate a pair of limited edition hand made goggles fashioned after the titular character's, as well as some Steam codes for the game (if by infiltrate you mean somebody in their PR team asked us if we wanted to give away some freebies. It's the same difference).

PhotobucketNow, we could keep them for ourselves, and after Ryuki's preview it's more than a little tempting - plus, The 405 Games team look great in goggles. But, we decided it would probably be better if we gave one lucky winner the chance to win them, along with a Steam code to download the game for free. If you don't manage to win the goggles, then worry not - three runners up will also land themselves a free Stealth Bastard Deluxe download code.

We toyed with the idea of setting up an elaborately secure room filled with armed guards for you to negotiate but, frankly, even thinking about organising something that complicated made us want have a lie down in a dark room. So, we've gone for a simple question instead:

Who trained Metal Gear's Solid Snake? Full name please, first and last.

Email us your answers by Friday 30th November, and we'll randomly select one lucky winner and three runners up.

Stealth Bastard Deluxe is available to download this week for £6.29 on Steam for PC - that's a 10% discount. As of next week, you'll be able to grab it for £6.99.
