    Default Free Stuff: The Thread

    The Mod Wonder: Since Rooster started this thread, I'm going to piggyback on his post to lay out some guidelines.

    This is a post for Free Stuff from various gaming-related places. Steam, GOG, Drivethru RPG, and the like. Try to let us know when it starts and when it ends, and don't use it for advertising things that aren't 100% free. For example, as I write this, if you buy Battletech from GOG, you get Shadowrun Returns for free... that doesn't qualify, because it's "Spend $40 and we'll give you something". Only 100% free things.

    Also, if you are posting a free thing, don't worry about Double Posting. If you're commenting on a free thing, that's separate.

    If it turns out we need more rules than that, I'll make a note in the thread and edit this post, too.




    So I donít know if this is a good idea or not, but I thought it might be nice to have one thread to... not really discuss, but talk about, whatever, the various giveaways that occasionally happen on Steam and Humble and whatnot. I donít like missing out on free stuff, and Iím guessing nobody else does either. So if you see something being given away for free, why not post about it here and let everyone know?

    F1 2015 is free on Steam until Saturday, if youíre into that kind of thing. It has to do with... cars? I think?

    Oddworld: Abeís Oddysee is free on Steam for the next two days!

    (And Iím immediately realizing that this is actually a terrible idea for a thread, but whatever.)

    It mainly depends on how frequently free things on normally large stores come out that aren't always free. If there's a dry spell of this, it'll probably get buried.

    Since I consider this thread an awesome idea, I ... have a copy of FTL to give away. FTL is as awesome as this thread, if not more. Just saying.

    I noticed that, but the news page does say ďget it now and keep it forever.Ē Maybe the devs donít know how the Steam store works?

    I poked my head in - the game appears to be free, but you have to actually install it, manually grab the DLC immediately, and only then have it. It's also multiplayer only, so it looks like they're trying to seed servers a bit or similar.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    Totally Accurate Battlegrounds is free on Steam for the first 100 hours. Eyeballing the release date, this'll probably run out sometime on the 10th/11th June.

    Is that free to keep, or free to play for the first 100 hours?

    As far as I can tell, free to keep if you claim (ie go to its install page on Steam) it within the first 100 hours.

    That's strange, the link only lead to the steam starting page, can't find it searching from inside Steam either, and trying to google it suggests there was a Quake Champions on steam but every link leads nowhere.

    Well that bait sure worked on me.
    I bought some stuff and got a code for Sunless Sea. Since I already sunk about 200 hours into that game, I would like to pass this on.

    Send me a PM if you want this excellent game but couldn't afford it. Spoken for and given away.
