Steam Games Giveaway over at steamgifts.com
« on: January 07, 2013, 12:17:45 PM »
Steam Games Giveaways Information:

All our games giveaways will be run through steamgifts.com as it's the easiest way for us to make sure the process is fair and simple to everybody.
It is in your interest to check out steamgifts.com as soon as possible because you'll need to accumulate some points to participate in our (and others) giveaways. More information about their points system on their site.

NEW RULES:
We will now run two separate giveaways at the same time, meaning we will always give at least 2 copies of the same game. One giveaway will be open to our public steam group members and one will be restricted to our private steam group (Verified Members and ex/current Donors). VMs and Donors can participate in both giveaways (if they have the required points), but on the rare occasion that one person wins both, a new winner will be picked for the public drawing.

This system gives a higher chance to win to our regulars and donors, without alienating our public steam group members. Keep in mind that becoming a Verified Member is completely free, so there's another reason to join!

This week's giveaway is: **PAPERS PLEASE**

For HyperionGaming.org public members
Head over to: http://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/I1gUY/papers-please/ to enter.

For HyperionGaming.org private members
Head over to: http://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/2rSpg/papers-please/ to enter.

(Ends: Oct 1, 2014 06:00 pm PST)

Good luck!  ;)

If you haven't already, register on steamgifts as soon as possible! Don't put it off! You automatically receive points each day which you need to enter giveaways, but you can only get points if you're registered!

Yes, that's unfortunately how the system works.
You need to join steamgifts.com ASAP (just sign in through Steam) and get points every day. To enter a giveaway you need to spend some points.

Haha. Well that's alright. We start a new one every two weeks, every week when possible. But which games would you like to see on the giveaway? I can't promise we'll do it, but but we'll try.
First giveaway ends soon.

Shogun 2 is 22.8 GB, it doesn't get much bigger than that.

Ah! Well, there's no dollar amount. These are just extras on top of monthly costs. If you'd like to see a game on the giveaway, just say so. It doesn't mean it will be the next prize, but it might appear later down the line. Basically, right now, we have a bunch of games. Once we don't have any left, we'll buy more :)

so what is preventing admins from participating in this? :P
Hmm, that's true. What is preventing admins (except Dave and I)? You guys were VMs/Donors too at some point...  ;) (iShank already beat you to it)

And the winner was selected. Check if you won! (I sent the game already!)

We'll probably start the next one on Monday, and I'll have three copies to give away this time. Stay tuned :)

The site was a bit confusing to navigate at first, but overall I prefer this. (just some feedback)
