AChicken's "2020 Sucks" Steam Key Giveaway! [Raffle Period Over]
2020 Sucks. Quarantine Sucks Too. We're all cooped up inside, so why not play some video games.
The Raffle/Giveaway period is over. Any remaining codes are on a first-come, first-claimed basis. Pick what you like, but don't be a jerk about it.
Keep in mind I've posted this on another forum I frequent for a larger sample pool, so some people from one site might be faster than others to claim something. I'll double-check the posting time if that happens. Best of luck!
I’ve organised the list into a 3-tier system.
1. The Best Games on Steam (Very to Overwhelmingly Positive – 5,000+ reviews),
2. The Games that are great but with a low adoption count (Mostly to Very Positive – between 500 and 5,000 reviews)
3. The Games that are good but short, or have some worrying issues (under 500 reviews, some notable negative reviews)
THE BIG-NAME BREAKOUT HITS
THE MID-TIER “MIGHT ENJOY”
THE SMALL-SCALE SHOVELWARE SORT OF?
Want to get games but afraid of increasing your Backlog? Follow this mantra: What games do I already own, want to play, but haven't? Will I play this game as soon as I buy redeem it? How long have I wanted this game?
Then judge for yourself if it’s worth getting, or it’s just going to sit in your library till the end of time.
I shall place my thingie in Hollow Knight my poultry friend
I'll apply for:
Big Name) Hollow Knight (and a follow up if this gets taken: Duck Game)
Mid Tier) Void Bastards (and a follow up if this gets taken: Tower of Guns)
Small Tier) The Gardens Between, The Stillness of the Wind, Think of the Children (I can come up with more ideas if any of these are taken)
This is awfully kind of you, to help people keep their spirits up during an awful year. Thanks for being kind!
lol remember last time I did a giveaway I thought this place was going away
good times. good times.
Eyyy nice of you to do this!
I'll put my foot in for:
Big Name: Hollow Knight or Machinarium
Mid Tier: Void Bastards or Paradigm
Small Tier: Paperbark, The Adventure Pals or The Stillness of the Wind
Thank you Chicken!
Big Name - Hollow Night
Mid Tier - Tower of Guns
Lowe Tier - Death Squared
Aw, you're welcome guys!
I just realised I had bought the Australia Fire Relief Bundle back in February for the sole purpose of supporting the Relief effort (100% of the proceeds went to relief centers) and only claimed 1 or 2 things for myself. I'd claim more, but really, I've got enough games in my Steam backlog as it is, and some of the more interesting games like Hollow Knight and Paradigm come with a DRM-free copy, so I can download it for the rest of my life without tying it to my Steam account.
And it seemed like the perfect time to give these codes away.
I'm adding all your choices. First pick, 2nd pick and the like, don't worry. I've got a word document I'll keep updating.
Aww, that's very kind of you, Chicken, thank you for doing this.
While the Hollow Knight is tempting, I know it'd sit in my library for months before I'd get to it, so I think I'll just leave it to poeple who want to play it soon. I could say that about the whole "Big-name" tier, so I think I'll be skipping it.
For the Mid-tier, I'd like to get Hand of Fate 2, that's been on my wishlist for a while now.
As for the Low-tier, same problem as with the High-tier, except this time I don't think I'd ever get to it lel. So I'll be skipping this one too.
I might have a look at what games I have unclaimed on Humble bundle, maybe I'll do something similar...
Thank you, Chicken!
MID-TIER) Mr, Shifty
LOW-TIER) The Adventure Pals
No, I didn't forget about this.
Put your names in before 8pm ET tomorrow for a chance to win stuff. (some a guaranteed win since some games have zero applicants)
I’ll go for Duck Game, Paradigm and Paperbark
Thanks for doing this, Chicken. I'll take Paper Fire Rookie to add to the collection of VR games that keep crashing my computer.
Okay, as you probably know by now, submissions are closed. I'll put the lists through a randomizer, announce the winners and give out the codes tomorrow morning.
(Sorry, it's getting late here. I've been busy with some weekend school work tonight.)
The codes I don't give away will be first-come first-served. Though, please be nice and don't take 'em all at once.
