Netflix Offers Immortal Account For The Old Guard Game

This is an interesting game and promotional idea.
To celebrate the release of the new Netflix action film “The Old Guard”, starring Charlize Theron, Netflix announced a nationwide U.S. competition for an “Immortal*Netflix Account” (*1000 months of subscription, or 83 years). How do you win it? By obtaining the highest score in an original “The Old Guard” videogame (www.oldguardgame.com), where you play as a Labrys-wielding immortal and defeat hordes of enemies.
“The Old Guard”, based on a graphic novel by Greg Rucka, is a Netflix Original film that follows a covert team of noble mercenaries. When their mysterious inability to die is suddenly exposed, they must fight to keep their identity a secret just as an unexpected new member is discovered. The film stars Charlize Theron who plays Andy (or Andromache of Scythia), one of the oldest and most seasoned immortals on a mission to save her crew. The film also stars Kiki Layne, and is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood.
*But how long is immortality, really? Netflix can’t promise a truly eternal subscription to its service, but it can offer the closest alternative: 1000 months of service, which comes out to a bit over 83 years.

As you would expect, the original game used for the competition mirrors the events of the film. It’s a browser-based, top-down, beat ’em up videogame where you play as the lead character of the film, and fight off hordes of enemies using only the film’s iconic one-handed Labrys (aka a giant, double-bladed axe). But just like in the movie, dying is not the end. Getting killed only slows you down, so to get the highest score, you have to defeat enemies without getting hit, and as quickly as possible. The competition will be held for three days (7/17, 7/18, and 7/19)on

Synopsis: Led by a warrior named Andy (Charlize Theron), a covert group of tight-knit mercenaries with a mysterious inability to die have fought to protect the mortal world for centuries. But when the team is recruited to take on an emergency mission and their extraordinary abilities are suddenly exposed, it’s up to Andy and Nile (KiKi Layne), the newest soldier to join their ranks, to help the group eliminate the threat of those who seek to replicate and monetize their power by any means necessary. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Greg Rucka and directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (LOVE & BASKETBALL, BEYOND THE LIGHTS), THE OLD GUARD is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks.
