  1. Tweet us the picture to @SunsetOverdrive. MUST include the Hashtag #IBuckingLoveSunset
  2. Post your picture in the comments of this Facebook post.

Contest is open now and we will cut off entries at 7am PST on Friday (1/23). So get at it!

We will be RANDOMLY selecting 10 winners. Submitting to both won’t increase your odds, so please just submit one time.

Happy New Year and welcome back to Moonlighting with Insomniac! We’ll be live on Wednesday January 14th from 1:30-2:30 PM PT / 4:30-5:30 PM ET.

There’s no special topic for this edition of Moolighting – We’re gonna kick it old school with Angela Baker, our Sr. HR Generalist (CA) and Kerri Zinkievich, our HR Rep (NC). So just throw your questions out there and we’ll do our best to answer them.

New this time around – we’ll have our comments section open to receive questions from the time we post this thread online until we are done on Wednesday… that’s right, you don’t have to wait to ask your question!  Just go ahead and ask away now and we’ll start answering when we log on!

Just to reiterate our goal for starting this interactive chat is to create a page that is an open forum/Q&A space for you guys! This is a chance for you to get to know Insomniac, our culture, the industry, and share some of our knowledge in the process. Please note – this is NOT to be mistaken as a space/blog to ask about our projects or games. To do that – just head on over to the Community forum or ask via Twitter or Facebook.

We look forward to hearing from you, and starting this interactive exchange! Ask away – we cannot wait to hear from you!

– Kerri & Angela

New Shirts!

New Sunset Overdrive shirts are available starting today through 1/2! Check out our new designs including hoodies and women’s sizes.

Starting today (12/23) with the release of the Mystery of the Mooil Rig Game Add-on, you may notice a brand new achievement called “Beat the Dev” in Sunset Overdrive. This is a new viral Chaos Squad achievement and it works like this:

Find a “Dev” in the game and get a higher score than them in Chaos Squad. Once you “beat” them by getting a higher score, you will pop this achievement AND get an exclusive Insomniac Games Developer shirt in-game. The initial Devs are Insomniac Games employees.

After you get the Achievement you are now a target. If anyone beats YOU, they will get the Achievement as well.

So it is simple really. Beat an Insomniac OR someone who already beat an Insomniac. Or someone who beat someone who beat an Insomniac. Get it?!

You can find Insomniac employees by looking for the exclusive Developer shirts AND we will be wearing a special Moon Head. There should also be an icon next to their name.

Happy Hunting!

The first story-based add-on for Sunset Overdrive, The Mystery of the Mooil Rig, is out now!

When a distress signal cries out from a Mooil Oil rig off the shores of Sunset City, Bryllcream emphatically asks for your help investigating. You swim right smack in the middle of a violent turf war between disgruntled and well-armed union workers. Plus, you have new mutants of the aquatic flair on your plate, too. But, you can handle it and set things straight. And if you can’t – well – there’s no use crying over spilt oil.

It’s packed full of new story missions, weapons, Amps, traps, quests, challenges, Night Defense bases, and Chaos Squad missions that will keep you busy and blissfully distracted from the horrors of reality.

For more info on what you’ll be getting check out the trailer above – or peruse the latest Sunset TV’s (12/9/14, 12/16/14) for an in-depth look at what you’ll be getting.
Enjoy the Mooil Rig and be sure to keep up to date with us on Twitter for more exciting Sunset Overdrive updates coming soon!
