High Voltage wants you to map The Conduit controls


High Voltage continued its one-of-a-kind marketing blitz for The Conduit this evening with a new contest. It’s a pretty simple, pretty cool little contest that effectively gives you, the gamer, a chance to map the game’s controls.

Update: High Voltage’s Eric Nofsinger wrote us to clarify the prize: “The prize is getting your name in a videogame, e.g. the Jack Loftus control scheme. =) We will likely send a lot of other junk too (T-shirts, etc) but the real prize is credits / bragging rights,” he said.

More from the release, including contest rules, below the fold.

“Given how flexible our control scheme code is, and how we’re going to have several pre-set mappings to choose from,” said Lead Programmer for The Conduit, Ed Federmeyer in a press release delivered to Infendo. “Wouldn’t it be a cool contest to allow gamers to propose schemes and we can take the best and burn them into the game as additional preset control mappings?”

The High Voltage folks are making no secret of the fact that this game is designed with a certain type of person in mind, and they’re doing it in a way that I hope gets noticed by other developers in the genre.

“From the start of the project our primary goal has been to make the definitive first person shooter for the Wii, and specifically for core gamers. Asking core gamers for their input is just a logical extension of that rationale,” said High Voltage CEO Kerry J. Ganofsky.

What a concept. One of the biggest barriers to entry for the FPS is often the control scheme. Making the process more “open source,” to borrow a term from my previous job, could be pretty revolutionary. Well, maybe not revolutionary, but pretty neat.

The contest rules are simple; using a standard Wii-Remote and Nunchuk combination, fans should send in what control mapping they think would be best for the following functions:

1. Move Forward/Back
2. Strafe Left/Right
3. Jump/Activate
4. Shoot Weapon
5. Target Lock
6. Crouch
7. Reload Weapon
8. Scope/Binocular Mode
9. Switch Between Weapons Carried
10. Switch Between Grenades Carried
11. Pause Menu
12. Swap Between Weapon Carried and Weapon on Ground
13. Equip ASE (All-Seeing-Eye) / Special
14. Aim Reticule/Turn Camera
15. Melee Attack
16. Throw Grenade

Fans should also feel free to also suggest Wii-motions (gestures) to trigger actions – just be sure to describe motions thoroughly enough that they are clear to High Voltage Software’s design team.

Entries should be sent to with the subject line of “Conduit Controller Mapping Contest”. Winning entries will be made available for selection through the UI as official controller schemes for The Conduit, with appropriate in-game credit given to their creators.

Contest entries must be received prior to November 14, 2008. Entries using duplicate schemes will be awarded based on whichever was received first. Winners grant permission to High Voltage Software (HVS) to use his/her name for professional and promotional purposes. All entries become the property of HVS and under no conditions does HVS promise any financial or monetary compensation to those who enter.

Now, all they need is that publisher…

Tell Me Your Delicious Nightmares Win a Darkrai


Darkrai Movie Sample

So I know we have some Pokémon fans here at Infendo, and some of you guys probably missed out on the Darkrai event that was being held at Toys R Us last weekend. Anyway, for you guys that happened to miss out on acquiring this legendary Pokémon, and have no way of getting to Nintendo World in New York City. I have been planning to run a little contest of sorts, to enter all you have to do is write up the following… Click the jump to find out exactly what it is.

What was the worst Nightmare you ever had and why was it a Nightmare to you?

To enter simply write up your “nightmare” and post it in the comments section. Keep it clean, scary and concise. Judging will be based on why it was so scary to you, and judged by a secret panel of judges. So entries should be kept short and easy to read, as well as slightly entertaining.

The winner will receive of course the legendary Nightmare Pokémon Darkrai, and I will personally trade you the Pokémon from my copy of Pokémon Diamond. So after I announce the winner of this contest, I will contact you personally. So keep in mind that you must have Pokemon Diamond or Pearl for the Nintendo DS, as well as be able to trade and exchange friend codes.

The contest will end by the end of the week (Saturday June 14th, at 11:59:59 PM) so be sure to post them in the comments section before the deadline.

Contest: Your Wit vs Your Wager


Courtesy of North Star Games (Creators of Wits and Wagers) is the Your Wit vs Your Wager Contest. No supreme complexity here folks. This is going to be straight forward.


  • 1st = 1 copy of the XBLA version of Wits and Wagers and 1 copy of the Wits and Wagers Board Game
  • 2nd = 1 copy of the XBLA version of Wits and Wagers
  • 3rd = 1 copy of the XBLA version of Wits and Wagers


Make a comment on this post with a guess as to how many posts The Xbox Domain has posted as of this post. Just like Wits and Wagers, if you go over no dice. If not, the first three with or closest to the answer will get a download code for the full XBLA game of Wits and Wagers. To get the boardgame of Wits and Wagers as well, you’ll need to be the closest to answer correctly and be the first to do so.

[update] Here’s a hint. 1-6,000

If you’re a Witty dedicated Xbox Domain reader you just might have a leg up or just make a wager on what you think is correct. Either way, Good Luck!

*Make sure the email address you submit is correct in case you win.
