Enter for a chance to receive a bundle of 66 indie games!

With today's addition of FEZ the number of indie games in GOG.com catalog amounts to 66. It's a nice sounding number (about 2/3rds of 100!), so we thought celebration is in order. What better way is there to celebrate games, than by giving away free games? (Here's a hint: there is no better way.) So, for the next 6 days everyone gets the chance to enter our sweepstakes--and the prizes are truly sweet. One lucky person will receive an enormous bundle of all the 66 indie games from our catalog. Eleven more people will be awarded 6 indie games of their choice each. Here's how you enter:

Do you see the entry form below? All you need to do is provide us with your valid email address. That's it, you're in! You get exactly one entry in the sweepstakes. Optionally, you can make your chances better by doing two things for us: you can tweet about our sweepstakes for an extra entry (there's a Twitter field already filled out for you--if you don't want to tweet, make sure it's blank before submitting your entry), and notify your Facebook friends (a pop-up will pop-up upon completing the form). You'll be awarded an extra entry for every friend that enters from your referral. All this social-sharing is purely optional, of course.

Note: the sweepstakes entry is now closed. Winners will be contacted soon.

Let me check. We're trying something new with a social media contest provider called WooBox; it should work with just the email.
I'll put a note in the newspost as well, but let me say here: entering your email does, indeed, enter you to win. The form then auto-forwards on to Facebook, but you have no obligation to actually log in or authorize it. Your email address is entry enough.

Agent_Tau: Nice idea, but I have the same issue than others here :

1) Blank tweet -> no Woobox login (everything all right so far)
2) Enter email address
3) Hit enter -> Facebook login pops up
4) Whether I click Cancel or Close button and pop-up closes, nothing else seems to happen: page not refreshed, not confirmation email received (anything wrong here?)
You've already entered at step 3 :-)

All you need to do is enter a valid email address. Everything else is optional.

Notice that the pop-up already informs you that you have 1 entry (see attachment).

I admit it looks a bit confusing, but that's the first time we use this sweepstakes platform. Be easy on us :-)

Big_Boss: I want enter, but I don't want authorize that Woobox thing...how can I do?
You only need to authorize Woobox if you want to get additional entries via FB friend referring.

Big_Boss: I have no FB or Twitter, am I in?
As long as you entered a valid email and hit the button, you are. Ignore everything that follows if you don't want to do any social sharing for additional entries.

Well, you have to enter through the WooBox app; if you don't want to authorize the javascript to run it, there's not much I can offer you. Entering your email--which is not shared around to WooBox and which we already have--gets you one entry for a chance to win.

Austrobogulator: I entered my email, at least I assume it worked, it certainly didn't say "You are entered to win! You have 1 entry." though =/
There's an entry with your email address. ;)

Big_Boss: And with mine? Sorry to ask, lol, but I want to know if I'm in or not :P
Yep. But rather than check everyone else's entry as it goes it, let me just assure you guys that if Autrobogulator and Big_Boss entered without a Facebook login, you did too.

jaron11: Pop-up said: „An error occurred. Please try again later.” :(
Well that's charming. Let me know if trying again later didn't work.

I'd also suggest if you have AdBlock or sommat like that, that you make sure you're not killing any .js calls from Facebook or WooBox.

Foxhack: ... okay, THAT didn't show up for me. Your thing is broken.
Dammit.

jaron11: No AdBlock here. Message appears when I’m clicking „share” and in the same time „invite” button works fine...
So you have Facebook?

nijuu: How many won last time they had a big giveaway , who were actually gog members/customers?
avatar
DukeNukemForever: I won at one and I'm normally not really fortunate in such things ;-) But true, knowing how many customers GOG have and how relative few are constantly active in the forum it's very unlikely you will recognize many there nor you will win. Good thing here is just to participate in giveaways you know you have fun doing them or they're so lazy like this one, but never do them just you believe you could win. Do it for your personal fun, not the possible price. Believe me, in the impossible case yo win it feels much more sweeter but also kind of bizarre...

Btw, great giveaway, really a good way to promote that gog also have indie games.
Don't worry guys :-) We're preparing a contest targeted mostly to our active community members. It will be ran exclusively in the forums, with just some sort of announcement in social media. Give us two weeks or so.
Hi! We have now reached out to all the winners asking them to contact us. If you were participating, make sure to check your inbox for the address with which you've entered. It might be a good idea to check your spam folder as well.

We need to hear from you within a week or so, just to make sure the addresses that were drawn belong to actual people. After that, we'll have to draw some extra entries and redistribute the unclaimed prizes.

On a side note: just as some of you, we're not entirely happy about the way the sweepstakes platform we've chosen to hold this giveaway handles some things, and we will be reevaluating its future use.
