Wow. To the Moon. Want. I want Blackwell, but I don't have the other games. I'd rather get them all at once.

I've won 14 times in 2278 entries.

What about everyone else?

I've won 14 times in 1187 entries. I think most of mine have been from specific groups. Group and private giveaways are really the way to go with SG.

I agree group and private are the best, but unforuantly for those with giant Steam libraries the pickings are slim. I find myself being able to spend points on pretty much all giveaways that I don't have now and still have points lol

Oil Rig in the new Indie Royale comes with a steam code and a cd key that works on Steam, so 2 for the price of 1.

I've won 2 out of 1,269. Those 2 were big developer giveaways though (tryst & guns of icarus online), so I don't know if they really count as "winning". Everyone that entered the Guns of Icarus giveaway won and I had a 1/3 shot on the tryst giveaway.

2392 entries, 79 wins >_>

Then again I'm quite active on sg, especially for giveaway puzzles, where many of my wins come from.

Also, thinking of biting on the new King's Bounty, but prices drop so quickly on that series. I wouldn't be surprised if it were 66-75% off by the winter sale.

Steam announced maintenance for this evening. That may be happening now.

Mark of the Ninja came out. This was amazing on Xbox.

I don't do the imperative often and look down on people who use it but I'm breaking it out here. You folks should take a close look at this one.

It's already on my wishlist. I'll probably pick it up during the Holiday sale.

I think it's a case of each to their own, but yes I'd agree that the non-stop DLC water the game down a bit. However, I can trump your entire argument with this:

That's a giraffe. On a treadmill. It's a DD pet reward for beating... somethingthatInevergotroundtobeating.

Your move, golden calf.



I believe it was for getting to wave 50 or something crazy on a survival map. Prior to some patch that lets you save your wave progress you had to sit at your computer (or build an effective defense to go afk) for like... five hours or so to actually get to that point. And keep in mind that if Steam went down it would disconnect you.

I don't hate the game... if anything I hate the developers for taking such a great idea and screwing it up.

God, I haven't entered a steamgifts giveaway in like a month. I would have thousands of points if they didn't have a limit cap.

Seems like steamgifts is better than playblink. 577 entries and 0 wins on the latter so far (and I only enter the random draw ones so equal chances to win).

Unimpressed with all the IR bundles lately (besides the one with Analogue, which wasn't a bad deal). Why so many people are chomping at the bit to buy an RPG Maker XP game is beyond me, especially when you can get games like it (for better or worse) for absolutely free elsewhere.

Can't complain about a Blackwell game being in the bundle, but for $5? Weak bundle.

21 wins/2,644 entries. Also, as for hiding DLC you already own on SteamGifts using the plugin, it has an ignore button as well. Just click through (double click on the photo of the DLC til it goes to the Steam page) and see if the green banner shows up showing you have it, then if it does, ignore that giveaway and that particular DLC will never show up in the giveaway list again. I recommend you back up the list regularly though (click upper left on Giveaway Filter Settings and then copy/paste to text editor)

Thank you both!

[Edit] I consider myself tech literate but I cannot for the life of me figure out what it is asking me to do.


Did you get it to work? I didn't realize the code changed. It used to be a Chrome extension with a one-click install, but the newest version of Chrome only allows extensions from the Chrome Web Store to be installed.

All you have to do is download js file in that thread, go to "Settings" then "Extensions" and drag it into the window and click "Install".

People seem to like the story in To The Moon. That has nothing to do with the tools used to create it.

You seem interested in Blackwell which is built using Adventure Game Studio, the point and click adventure game equivalent of RPG Maker. You can get games just like it (for better or worse) for absolutely free elsewhere.
