I'm feeling a bit crazy this year so starting about in random months or rather beginning in some point in February I'm going to post some phrase or random word and whoever responds first after I post it, you give me your steam address and I'm going to purchase you a random game off of your  wishlist. Might be the pricey one (which sometimes may include multiple games), might be cheap. I'll be flipping a coin on it.

 

And of course for the sake of being sure when people know when I'm just talking in response to someone or posting for that lucky first poster. I'm going to place First: ahead of the random word or phrase so whoever first comment after that gets a slice of game.

 

Cheap: $25 and below ( Either one lesser game off the list or multiples equaling up to $25 )

 

Pricey: $26 and up ( Either one major game off the list or multiple lower priced games equaling the high amount)

 

Also just to note so this wont be an issue later. If a post to a conversation happens to pop up. Someone responding to a previous post before my First: Then that's naturally not going to count. First post towards me in "quote" response to my post for the opportunity to get a free game once I give the word or phrase.

 

>:3 And its random so whatever game you get spends on the flip of the coin and my directional choice.

 

Yes, I know I keep adding but thankfully at least its not another rule point. Lol. I'm going to attempt to do one every month randomly, more so if I have a good streak. Not knowing when  I'm going to post it makes it more enjoyable, especially for me. If it works out this year, I'll keep it going into 2016. Who knows, maybe more people will join in the fun and buy for others.

 

As an additional I will want to know whether or not you mind if the game is possibly one you have on your list that hasn't been released yet. So if you happen to win, let me know if you would only prefer something you could play immediately and I will ignore the pre-purchase games on your wishlist.

 

Also, (glad I caught this early) just so other individuals can have a better chance considering for the time being I'm only doing a single winner a month. If you have already won for the year of 2015 it wont count if you try and participate again. My goal for Free Game Year in the end is to have this as something I do every year and to get to a point where I can have at least 4 possible winners in a single month, about 1 winner for each week.

Very nice of you. I used to do that a few years ago, it would be nice to be able to start again.

Yeah I though I'd try something extra this year. At times I just have extra money on hand so it doesn't hurt to give.

 

Much obliged. I do hate when I do that by accident.

If we do do respond first, are we suppose to say anything in particular about the random word/phrase or just anything?

Not at all. Just respond in general. Doesn't have to be meaningful.

Cool idea, but, being the pessimist I am, I think it might end up in a huge clusterfuck of sorts. And bickering is also not out of question. After all, people are greedy by nature.

Not sure what you mean. Its pretty simple and no one can get over another individual considering the post after mine would automatically win. Who argues over free? Especially getting something on their own wishlist so its not like it wouldn't be something they didn't want. It'll be fine. If there is trouble it will be from trolls.

Yeah, you can never know, I admit it. But...Game Dev is Game developer? You're some kind of Game developer?

Yes, but I still have a ways to go. Main issue being time and I couldn't fully commit to one that was started before. At the moment I had to go about setting my own pace and I've chosen to work with learning Unity3D. Once I feel confident in my knowledge of it I'm going to work on something. But there are plenty ahead of me in skill on the dev forum. I'm hoping to show something at least by the end of this year. Even if its just madness in a single room.

Aaaaha. Well, good luck with your venture! Some indie games are trash, but some can reach epic proportions!

Thank you. One reason I'm not going to rush it. It wont do any good to try and move too quickly and I want to focus on one that I want to master.

Yeah, I think thats for the best. Better to make sure no more "masterpieces" of the indie steam group appear. *Cough* The slaughtering grounds *cough*

A reminder for those who are going to participate. Be sure to pay attention first week of February for the signal. If it goes well this year, I'll roll this into the next one and more then likely I'll think of a more challenging set up for the wins. One's you'll have to properly answer trivia wise. We'll see.

Anytime. Its fun in sharing.

I actually donate plenty to funds that I see. Did one just recently when I went through my usual store a few days ago. Even though they gave me one of those re-useable  shopping bags I'll never use.
