I’m giving away FIVE (wow) copies of Dishonored, for ZERO DOLLARS (WOW).
Proof of Purchase
My personal favorite game, it is an excellent exercise in player choice, sneaking, and art style over graphics. It’s got atmosphere up to its teeth, some of the tightest gameplay I’ve ever played, and some of the best, if not the best level design in a single player game ever. Plus, there’s some kickass DLC that you can pick up if you really enjoyed it. As a whole, it’s a perfect example of a game that caters to the player; giving a variety of options, but providing enough challenge, intrigue and freedom to keep them interested. If you don’t already own it, you should consider getting a hold of it. And what better way than for free?
As a bonus, one winner will get an additional copy of Gunpoint, an indie game that is similarly sneaky. You play a freelance detective who comes into the possession of a variety of gadgets and get caught up in some major espionage. The puzzles allow for a variety of approaches, and although short, there is a fair amount of replayability, and some pretty good dialogue, if you ask me.
These games are both available on Steam (Dishonored, Gunpoint), and the latter is available DRM-free from the Humble Store, and at the developer’s website.
If you win, you’ll get a copy of Dishonored. Just one. That will be in the form of a CD key that I will send to you in a message. What you do with it from there is up to you. Naturally, I’d prefer you play it, but I don’t mind if you want to pass it off to someone else, or keep it as a Christmas gift or whatever. If you want to give it away, just send the key to that person, and they’ll be able to pick it up instead of you.
In order to download and play Dishonored, you’ll need to use Steam. If you don’t already, you’ll need to make an account and download the client, which will only require an email address. From there, you can use the key by clicking ‘+ Add a Game’ in the bottom left corner, and then ‘Activate a Product on Steam’. You’ll then need to download the game, which’ll be about 7GB in size. It runs fairly well, even on older computers, although I do recommend you check the system requirements, just in case. This website is good for that kind of thing.
Do take note that it can be quite violent/gory, depending on how you play it.
Additionally, one copy of Gunpoint will be sent to one of the five winners in the form of a link to a Humble Store URL. This will likely require you to make an account with the site, although that will only require an email address. From there, you can either download the game directly, without DRM, or get a Steam key to activate in the client in the same way as the above and download it that way, if you so choose.
Winners will be chosen from people who reblog the post at random, using a number generator, probably. If you want to spread the post, but don’t want to win, that’s cool; I’ll be checking with all the winners before sending the key through.
- To enter, just reblog the post. No other entry requirements whatsoever.
- Likes don’t count. Sorry, but I’m trying to get this as much visibility as possible.
- You do not need to be following me in order to enter, and no advantages will be given to people who do. I won’t be posting the giveaway results in any tags, though.
- Only one entry per person, please. I’ll be checking for side blogs and things like that. You can reblog as many times as you like but I’m only counting one entry.
- No giveaway blogs. Come on, dude.
- If you don’t respond within 48 hours of me sending a message letting you know that you’ve won, I’ll generate another number. The same goes for any other reason you’re unable/unwilling to receive the key.
- You will immediately lose if you call it a Bethesda game
- I’m not even joking
- It was made by Arkane Studios
You can tell because it’s not a shallow buggy mess
The giveaway will end 14 days after 50 people have entered.
