Today is a good day for me. Today my favourite digital distribution service released the game that touched me like no other game for a logn time (to be precise, from the times of Planescape and Grim Fandango). To celebrate this, I have a little giveaway for this fine community. Rules are similar to my first Creepy Giveaway.

Rules:
1. To enter, post something creepy. A picture. A short story. A creepypasta. A fact. A link to good free horror game. A creepy thing that happened to you.
2. No commertialy released material. For example, Candle Cove is OK; Stephen King’s Moving finger is not. IMSCARED is OK, “abandonware” link to I have no mouth and I must scream is not.
3. There are three prizes:
- Main Prize: GOG copy of The Cat Lady! This one will be chosen amongst everybody all participants. Pure luck, embodied by uncle Random.Org will be the judge here.
- Self-Made Prize: Desura key for The Cat Lady! To enter in this category, make something creepy yourself! Draw a creepy \ scary picture; write a short story; cook some creepypasta.
- Personal Prize: Desura key for Cognition Episode 1: Hangman! To enter in this category, post some personal creepy experience. Something, anything that scared or creeped you out. Heared footsteps in some empty room? Doors in your house open all by themselves? Tell us about it.
- The Cat Lady popularity prize - another GOG copy of The Cat Lady... I have no idea how will I give this one away... Looking for ideas, guys ; )
4. If your entry qualifies for more than one prize, tell me if you want to enter in both categories or just one.
5. Optional: If you played The Cat Lady and wonder what the hell was that part about Joe and Ivy, you can place your vote here ; )
6. Reputation cap: All I ask for is rep > 0. Regifting? I want this game to end up in someone's curious and loving hands. How it ends there - it's up to you. Trading? Nope, I want it to be a gift.
7. The contest ends in a week time from now if that's OK with everybody : )

Good luck!

NOTE:
Both the game and some entries here are suitable only for mature audience - so I think that makes this giveaway +18... shouldn't be a problem here on GOG : )

------------------------------------------
EDIT 06.04.2013:

Dear Competitors, I have one anouncement two questions for you:

Question 1:
Whad do you think about closing the contest on Tuesday night, so that those less fortunate Competitors can still buy the game with -25% discound on Wednesday?

Announcement:
The Cat Lady is doing pretty good on GOG bestsellers list and that's another reason to celebrate! I'd like to anounce that if The Cat Lady beats Omerta on the wishlist when the contest ends, I'll get one more GOG code for the TCL to give!

Addendum:
It's not that I have anything against Omerta. I decided to make it the breaking point due to the recent controversy that the game caused. Yeah, cheap of me ; )

Question 2:
If one more code appears in this giveaway, does anybody have an idea about picking the winner? We have one category for luck, one category for creativity and one for personal tale... Should we choose a judge to pick the final winner? Or maybe make it a separate giveaway?
Give me some ideas!

Cool, thanks for the giveaway!
I'm in for the Cat Lady (GOG).

And since this is a Cat Lady release celebratory giveaway, this is my entry. I know it's supposed to be funny, but it freaks me out. I hope it qualifies.

I have too much time on my hands & a very vivid imagination.

AND I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE.....
Count me in for the Personal Prize: Desura key for Cognition Episode 1: Hangman!

I don't know if this story qualify, so please let me know if it doesn't, so I can tell another one.

So right now I'm scared! Why you say?

Here the thing an hour or so ago I was at the bus stop and there was an old lady who came up to me asking to borrow my cellphone for an emergency, I, of course gave it to her.

Once she finished, she gave me back my phone and told me to never answer the number she called and at some point they will stop but if I answer them it will turn up bad, but not to worry too much because they live in another town (that town is known to have a lot of "bad" people) and they will surely not come after me.

So here I am now thinking that she threatened someone's life or something and those people will either came after me or call the police. either way, I'm kinda scared from the outcome, given the fact that they can have my name from the voice-mail and the Internet.

I thought I was doing something good and helping out someone... Apparently we can't even trust an old lady.
Thanks and +1 for your generosity, Novotnus!

Please, count me in for the main prize (GOG copy of The Cat Lady).

As for my entry, what might be better than an old creepy house? ;)

If the story is true, it qualifies : )
Shameless copypasta:

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I porn-surfed, weak and weary,
Over many a strange and spurious porn-site of "hot chicks galore",
While I clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning,
And my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour,
"Tis not possible," I muttered, "give me back my free hardcore!"
Quoth the server, "404."

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I porn-surfed, weak and weary,
For many a quaint and curious website of X-rated lore,
Found the server nearly napping, http replies a-slacking,
Though my loins were filled with burning, yearning for a teenage whore,
And as I paused awhile in hope that service be restored -
Quoth the server, "404."

Once upon a night-time dreary, as I web-surfed, red-eyed, weary,
I resisted strange and lurid websites of hot sex galore,
But my curiosity grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
I gave in and clicked the link to see what waited there in store.
And with the clicking, came the ticking, of the page that was no more
Quoth the server, "404"

Once upon a porn-site dreary, where I lingered, red-eyed, bleary,
O'er many a strangely grammared page of Russian girls galore,
Closing popups then cascading, spyware programs now pervading,
Came a sight that set me thinking, linking to hot chicks galore.
"'Fetch the URL," I muttered, but browser stuttered as before -
Quoth the server, "404"
+1 rep and thanks for the giveaway.
I hope this qualifies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_Bf05_IJxA
Here you go.
I win.
I'll take the GOG version!

Oh, just in case Ted Nugent is doing the judging here and I get robbed, can someone gift me this; I'm broke! :D
