#143795 Zombie's TFTD Giveaway!

Posted ñΩxicity on 02 July 2015 - 04:14 AM

I hope that the lucky recipients enjoy this classic as many of us seasoned vets of Strategy Core have over the years. I must warn and admonish most of you. If you play this game, you must save often no matter the difficulty you choose. New players will have their asses handed to them on a regular basis, but do not despair, there is no disappointment when doing so. Use this advice as a means to play smart, a reload is just a good way of learning from your faults as a trial and error. Only the fool plays multiple missions without saving. Also if you do receive a copy of this game, you will make sure to thank Zombie and Thorondor for their valiant efforts of providing you with historical gaming wholesomeness.

Hi everyone! Some of you might know that Terror From the Deep celebrates it's 20th birthday this year. So in observance of this momentous occasion, I decided to do something special: giveaway 10 free Steam keys for the game. That's right, I said FREE. No contests, no hoops to jump through, no facebook popularity scams, just an old-fashioned giveaway!

Even though this isn't a contest, there has to be some ground rules to make it fair for everyone:
  • Be (or become) a member of StrategyCore. This is mandatory as I have to contact the winners through PM.
  • Do not already own a copy of TFTD. I prefer people who haven't played the game yet (if you've played UFO:EU before, that's ok), but I'll give a copy to those who do not have it in their Steam library already.
  • Have a Steam account. You can't get the key to work without an account there.
  • Be willing to let us use your forum name for the winner's list.
  • Use the game for yourself. I'm not against re-gifting a key to someone else if you deem necessary, but if they are able to enter themselves it's better.
There are two little points I hope everyone can adhere to if you win:
  • Do not resell the game.
  • Do not trade it for something else.

I can't enforce these, so please act responsibly.

So now you are all wondering how to enter the giveaway, right? It's simple, start a post in this topic with the words "I'm in!". Only one entry will be counted. If you want to make a case for why you want a key, go ahead, but your chances will not increase. :P Guest posts are not eligible to enter and will be ignored. The odds of winning depend on the number of entries received, but in my experience you'll have a pretty good opportunity to walk away with a copy. This giveaway will probably remain open for 1 month to give everyone time to enter and will close at or around midnight CST July 31 2015. Winners will be announced here in this topic and I will also send them a PM. Unclaimed prizes (I'll give you a couple weeks to reply to my PM) will be sent to the next eligible applicant. Winners will be chosen at random with a random number generator.

A big thanks to Thorondor for helping me with the funds to acquire some of the steam keys!

Finally, please "Like" this post if you thought this was a good idea. I want to get an idea how popular a giveaway like this is with everyone. Maybe I'll do another in the future with a different game! :)
