      Welcome to a special giveaway!

      Instead of a specific game or a lottery system you will need to guess the pre-determined amount ($X) I've allocated for the giveaway. You can submit a guess by listing any number of games and their prices (include a total in USD) in a top-level comment in this post by the time this post is 48 hours old. The total cost of all games can not exceed $X! The commenter who comes the closest without going over $X will win each game in their list. If there is a tie the first commenter will win.

      Good luck!

      For verification purposes, here is the salted hash of $X: 6879e144663fc05aacacbd7daf8614aa

      Extra info:

      1. Exclude taxes
      2. If your local currency is not USD please convert the total to USD after getting the total for your local currency
      3. Please include sale price discounts

      Example (from @psi):

      Game Platform Cost
      Shadows Over Loathing Steam $22.99
      Vampire Survivors Steam $4.99
      Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin eShop $19.79
      Total $47.77

      IMPORTANT UPDATE

      This offer is no longer available. Thanks to those who participated!


      Anyone here in the mood for a new Steam game this weekend?

      Presumably you are, because you clicked this thread to read it! Welcome!

      What is this?

      It's a Steam game giveaway! I figured some of you might want a new game to play this weekend, and what's better than getting an awesome new game for free?!

      What's the catch?

      There isn't one! No gimmicks, and no strings attached!

      How do I get my game?

      Comment below with your choice, and I'll PM you the key. To keep the thread from being pure noise, I would also like you to, with your request, tell me about a favorite “hidden gem” game you’ve played. I love hearing about diamonds in the rough, so let me know about an underappreciated game you’ve loved (the more obscure/unknown the better).

      Also, if you end up playing the game you get this weekend (you don’t have to — it’s a gift, not an obligation!), return to the thread to tell everyone about it!

      Are there any restrictions?

      Only one game per commenter please, but note that multiple people CAN request the same game! I will give out as many of each copy as is requested!

      Why are you doing this?

      My pageant answer is about doing something nice for an awesome community during some difficult times, but the real truth is that I've been drinking a bit, there’s a seriously good bundle on right now, and as I looked at the titles in it, it made me feel deep down in my bones the unshakeable sense that more people need to play Yoku's Island Express.

      What's on offer?

      Your choices are below. I haven't played all of these, but, based on the reviews, there's not a bad game in the bunch! There's also a wide amount of variety, so hopefully you can find something that speaks to your individual interests!

      Game Genre Review Score Linux Support
      Blazing Beaks twin-stick roguelite shooter 86% positive with 999 reviews Platinum
      Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood FPS western 84% positive with 2,049 reviews Gold
      Dungeons 3 RTS dungeon sim 94% positive with 10,686 reviews Native
      Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition CRPG adventure 89% positive with 1,598 reviews Native
      The Walking Dead: The Final Season story rich zombie adventure 93% positive with 9,479 reviews Gold
      Yoku's Island Express pinball metroidvania 97% positive with 1,521 reviews Platinum
      Yooka-Laylee collectathon 3D platformer 79% positive with 2,115 reviews Native

      What do you recommend?

      First of all, thank you for asking! That’s so thoughtful.

      • Yoku's Island Express

      MORE PEOPLE NEED TO PLAY THIS (thus sayeth the truth in my bones). The game is a delight. It's charming, novel, and very well-made. "Pinball metroidvania" isn't exactly a common genre or even one that makes sense on paper, but it's pulled off splendidly. It’s also thoroughly enjoyable even if you're a complete pinball novice like me. If in doubt about which game to pick, choose this one! If, after you play it, it turns out I’ve steered you wrong, you’re allowed to return to this thread and yell at me.

      • Yooka-Laylee

      I honestly think this is one of the most unfairly criticized games out there. I genuinely don't understand why so many people had very negative reactions to it. I don't normally finish games, but I full-on 100%ed this one! It has a couple of rough spots and edges, but on the whole I thought it was wonderful and deserved far better than the lukewarm-to-hostile response it got.

      Can just ANYONE ask for a game?

      Yes. PLEASE DO. Don’t wait around thinking someone else deserves it more or you don’t want to be a bother or you don’t want to put me out or you might not play it this weekend or you might look like a freeloader. I literally WANT to give this stuff away. Nothing would make me happier than to see this thread deluged with requests! If you're someone who might get enjoyment out of any of these games, then DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK FOR ONE!


      IMPORTANT EDIT: I am handing out games even if I'm not responding in the thread to each individual request! I didn't want to keep bumping the thread myself with confirmations.

      Important: This will be a noisy thread. If you do not wish to see it in your feed, please use the "Ignore" feature to hide it!


      What Is This?

      Times are tough for a lot of us out there. I'm hoping we can make things just a little bit easier by spreading some free entertainment to those that need/want it.

      This is a giveaway thread for games. Most games will be on the Steam platform for PC, though any platform is eligible.

      How Does It Work?

      -Gifters

      Each person that wants to give away games can open up their own "shop" in a top-level comment, showcasing the games they have available to give away.

      Each "shopkeep" can set their own rules for giveaways (e.g. first come, first serve; limit 2 per customer; answer a riddle to get a game; tell me about your favorite band; etc.). Feel free to have some fun with this! You can use my "shop" as an example for how to make yours, though your offering certainly doesn't have to be that involved. I got a little bit too excited and kinda went all out for this. :)

      -Receivers

      Shoppers, or people wanting to take advantage of the giveaways, can wander the bazaar, checking out with the vendors who have items that interest them. You do NOT have to giveaway anything in order to accept games! These are giveaways, given freely, not trades! That said, a shopkeep might ask you for a story or some wisdom in exchange. Please indulge them!

      Rules

      Giveaway rules are set by individual gifters, but there are handful of guidelines everyone should follow:

      1. No grey market keys! Only giveaway games from reputable sources. If you're not sure what this means, please ask.
      2. Requests for games should be done in the thread, but if the gift is a key, those should be delivered by PMs only. Please don't post keys publicly, even obfuscated ones.

      Isn't there a Tildes Steam group for giveaways?

      There is, but not for much longer. The group is cumbersome to keep invite-only, which limits its membership, and we now have the ignore thread feature here on Tildes which we did not have when I first made the group (and I didn't want people bothered by noisy topics like giveaways). I will be closing the Steam group soon and moving giveaways back on-site to threads like this one. I feel that's better for the community, and makes participation far easier.

      Gaming Blind Dates Event

      For Valentine's Day, the Tildes Game Gifting Group is offering up a number of "blind dates" for any gamer who is interested in trying out something new. Each gift is a game, but you won't know the game's name -- only the top 4 tags describing the game. Select the tags which most interest you, then find out the exactly who the game is once it's given to you! Hopefully it's a keeper!

      How can I participate?

      You may choose to:

      • gift a game/games as a blind date for others,
      • go on a gaming blind date (i.e. receive a game gift),
      • or both!

      Steps to enroll:

      1. Comment either in this thread here on Tildes, or in the thread on the Steam group (if you are already a member).

      2. In your comment, identify whether you would like to gift a game, go on a gaming blind date, or both!

      3. If you are not already a member of the Tildes' Game Gifting Group on Steam, PM me with a link to your Steam profile so that I can friend and add you (the group is invite-only).

      4. If you are gifting a game, PM me or message me on Steam with the name of the game, how you will gift it (e.g. store purchase, key, etc.), and the platform it's on (if not Steam).

      Timeline

      You may enroll up through Thursday, February 13. Once all the participants have enrolled, the blind dates will be set up and will begin on Valentine's Day, Friday, February 14.

      Additional Info

      To ensure that giftees will have a good chance of liking their gifted game, we are requiring that gifted games have a combined user review score of at least 80%. You don't need to worry about getting a bad or junk game!

      Games are given freely by their generous donors, and there are no strings attached or hidden catches. You ARE allowed to receive a game even if you don't gift one!

      For other questions/specifics, full details are available in the event thread in the Steam group.


      Note: If you do not wish to see this thread in your Tildes feed, please use the ignore function to hide it!

      It's been a while since the last Steam key giveaway thread, so let's have another one! Post any extras you have (or are willing to buy for others if you're feeling super generous), and let's share!

      I won't set thread-wide rules (e.g. first come first serve, one per person, random draw after a certain amount of time, etc.) and instead let will let each individual poster set the parameters for how they want to distribute.

      Hey friends.

      I've got some spare Steam keys for games that I already own (being subscribed to Humble monthly leads to a bunch of this ha.)

      First come first serve if anyone is interested.

      Moon Hunters - haven't played this yet but I've been wanting to for a while. It has online co-op so maybe whoever picks this up, we can play some time.

      Also some stuff I don't want that I'd love to get rid of:

      NBA 2k17

      EDIT: Well that went fast, ha
