Wow, didn't think that would generate that much interest. I've dropped a couple other codes and two CAG's got them. Im just happy if someone can enjoy them and they don't go to waste. A thanks is appreciated but I understand some may get lurked. I might do the PM thing next time but just don't want to get a bunch of PMs. anyway, enjoy the games.


Next time just do a steamgifts.com giveaway.

Does anyone have Hitman: Sniper Challenge currently installed?

I was going to try a fix to get around the region block (I redeemed a key from Famitsu).

He'd need to be in BGCQ because anyone can invite to the CAG group, meaning that it's overflowing with non-CAGs. Bastards.

MikeUFC should post his Cryostasis SteamRecommendation here. If he doesn't by later tonight, I might.



Ask and you shall receive, my friend.

Let's be real. There's a lot of things wrong with this game. The graphics are mediocre, the shooting/melee mechanics are poor at best and it's probably the most poorly optimized game I've ever played. Even on beefy systems, you'll experience a relatively poor framerate...That said, this game is very strangely compelling. It's a puzzle game with some (albeit simple and clumsy) combat implemented. The atmosphere, situations and especially story with the way it's told make it worth it to see it through the end. An easy recommendation if you can get this for $5 or less.

Indie Royale: The Back to School Bundle is live $4 atm.

Steam Keys
Sword & Soldiers + DLC
Lunar Flight
Sequence

Desura Keys
Bunny Must Die
Flying Red Barrel
Qlione
Cute Things Dying Violently :cry:


Indie Royale almost always disappoints me.
Haven't Swords and Soldiers, Sequence, and CTDV been in other bundles already?

If anyone was disappointed in missing a Pitman Desura key, just send me a PM and you can have mine. :) (Remember, it's Desura, not Steam.)

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing... I haven't seen Sequence in a bundle (although I may have missed it), but everything else is pretty mediocre this time around.

Interested in Sequence and maybe Bunny Must Die, but for a $5+ minimum, not worth it. Not really even worth it for $4 this time around. :cry:

The last IR bundle with Analogue and Waves was actually really good though.

Sequence hasn't been in a bundle, but it has been given out free before by the developer on neogaf. Sword and Soldier was in a humble bundle, you could get it by beating the average (which was too high IMO, you were better off waiting for it to be in another bundle). CTDV was in an Indie Gala bundle, which I'm glad I passed on.

The only game I already had from this Indie Royale is Sequence, cuz I got a key from the developer for free.

Thank you for Pitman.

You're welcome. :)

Too bad I missed Sequence back then. I've been looking at the game for awhile; it looks like something I'd enjoy (Guitar Hero RPG? lol). It'll be $2 again during the Winter sale though, so I'll just wait for that.

I managed to get the Swords & Soldiers DLC (not the game as I own it) and Lunar Flight.

Thank you very much!

Yeah, I saw it the minute you posted it, was on my ipad, jumped up to my pc but was too late. I should buy a SSD as that would have cut down on a good minute. Oh well. Thanks anyway.

Curious what Indie Gala will have... they're sort of running out of cut-rate publishers to get games from.

Sequence is very much worth your time. It's the first rhythm game that I've enjoyed, excluding GH and RB.

I thought Metro 2033 was mediocre, to be honest. Every level felt like it chained me to slow moving Russians from encounter to encounter, and the few times where it let me off the leash and got fun, it was basically Call of Duty with terrible stealth mechanics.

That said, the graphics are nice and the shooting isn't too bad for a while. I don't think you'll waste your time if you buy it just to play as much as you can tolerate.

Oh, and it's one of THOSE games. You know the sort, ones that you can't dislike without being assumed to have "not understood" it or been "too casual" for it so the conversation is always a little one-sided.


I'm in complete agreement. There are definitely positives: atmosphere, for one. Mostly though I found it to be a mediocre experience and it's one of the rare FPS games I've never finished.

I have to agree with both of you, mediocre and poorly optimized mess. The gunplay didn't even feel good to me. I probably should go back to it but it's been long enough that steam doesn't even say when I last played it and I haven't had a desire.

I can understand what people see in it, but I just don't see the same things.

So what exactly is the point of steamgifts.com? Just to be nice? Is it basically just a raffle without actually having to pay anything to enter? What're the "(_P)"s next to the title of the games? Say I wanted to give away Borderlands 2, would the giveaway be open to anybody?

Sorry for the stupid questions, but I just now noticed all those steamgift sigs.

Well, it's a giveaway site. You give games away.

The P stands for what the retail value of the game is. For example, if you want to enter giveaway for Borderlands 2, the retail value is $60 now, so you'd spend 60P to enter it. It's to stop people from entering EVERY give away at once. You have to be a bit more selective with the ones you enter. Your points regenerate over time though.

Otherwise, it's pretty self-explanatory. You can host an open giveaway, but you can also make the giveaway ONLY open to a certain Steam group (like the CAG Steam Group), and you can also add that only those above a certain contributor level can enter. Your contributor level is just a mirror of how the total value of all the games you've given away, i.e. if you gave away Borderlands 2, and FTL, you'd have $60 + $10 = $70 contributor level.

Hope that answers your questions. :)

Ita essentially a raffle. You can make a private giveaway so only people you want can enter

That must have been where I got Sequence from since I had it in my library and know I didn't buy it.
