Howdy, folks, and welcome to the next incarnation of The Community Giveaway, a tradition carried on by the handsome IAmSinistar, the lovely moonshineshadow, and now, the Puzzlemaster himself!

*****RULES*****
PLEASE READ THESE BEFORE ASKING FOR ANYTHING.
1. If you donate a key to this giveaway, you're leaving who gets it FULLY UP TO MY DISCRETION. If you'd like to pick and choose who gets what yourself, you'll have to open up a giveaway of your own.

2. Reputable members ONLY are accepted. By "reputable", I do not mean having a high rep, but having an active presence in the community. Who I deem reputable is AT MY DISCRETION.
As a general guideline, you must have a non-recent registration and have been actively participating in the community for at least a month or so. I WILL BE THE JUDGE on whether you are reputable enough or not.

3. You will be banned from this giveaway if:
- you are rude
- you are on the Known Scammers list or have otherwise been shown to be an alt account/impersonator/troll
- you lack meaningful community participation (which usually means that most of your participation is taking from giveaway threads)
- you knowingly give empty/false/unusable codes
All blacklistings are, again, AT MY DISCRETION.

4. No code-dropping of any sort. Please. I know you mean well, but I'd rather you donate to this giveaway.

5. If you wish to make a donation, give me a PM containing the keys. You will receive full credit for your donation and your name will be added to the list of donors. You may, however, request to be anonymous, and I will honor this request.

6. Nominating other members is allowed, and encouraged. The nomination will only be accepted if the nominee falls within the terms of this giveaway, however. The nominee has a week to claim the game before it is up for grabs for everyone else again. If somebody has been nominated for a game, the game will be marked with an exclamation mark (!) until either redeemed or a week has passed. If you do not wish to receive nominations, either leave a request in the thread or PM me and you'll be added to the "no-gift" list on the OP. If you wish to be removed from this list, let me know in the same manner. Please limit the amount of nominations you make to around 3 a week.

7. The limit is one game per month. Exceptions are made for games with a dagger symbol (†), which indicates that they were given away en masse for free sometime in the past.

8. Keys are first-come, first-served.

9. Some games are on a multi-game code. If given such a code, only redeem the game you asked for. The malicious redeeming of extra keys will net you a nifty ban.

10. NO FEEDING THE TROLLS! In the event that a scammer or troll DOES arrive (and I have no doubt that they will upon seeing the very title of this thing), DO NOT PROVOKE THEM! I know who they are. You know who they are. Leave them be. I will NOT allow this thread to be derailed into a discussion about scammers.
If you're concerned that they're a scammer and I'm not noticing it, notify me via PM rather than clogging up this thread, please.

11. Ask in the thread. No requesting via PM unless you've already requested in the thread and I somehow missed it (which is unlikely since I'm on this forum a lot and this is one of the threads I lurk on frequently).

12. Only GOG keys are accepted for this thread. If you have a non-GOG key, I will accept it, but it will go to the non-GOG edition of this giveaway instead.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:
I will NEVER ask for keys to be re-sent. If you get a message asking for such, ignore it, as you're likely getting scammed.

GOG has changed the chat privacy settings to default to "friends only". If you wish to be contacted by anyone here in the thread, make donations, receive nominations, etc., please remember to change your privacy settings accordingly even and especially if it was set to "anyone" before. Go to "orders & settings" and then "privacy" to accomplish this. You can read more information here.


The available games available are listed in posts 2 and 3.

Thank you aghem and zeogold for WARSOW game.
May I have Ghost Master if it's still available?
Hey you! Yes, you, adventure game neophite. Get Broken Sword, now. One of the best in the genre, it doesn't get much better than this. Imo it is essential for its genre as Doom is for shooters, nobody should really miss it. The sequels are just ok, but the first one is a masterpiece.

I always wanted to give it a shot. I never really got into adventure genre but I have very fond memories about few such games from my childhood. Broken Sword is from the same era so I might like it.

I whole-heartedly agree.

It is a great and beautifully animated game but for me there is not enough drama in it (it's more classic adventure and exploring than mystery) so I personally prefer Gabriel Knight but of course this is extremely subjective. However I would always agree that people who never played Broken Sword and are interested in the genre definitely should get it.

I would agree with that. Though I played the GK games when they were released and only cycled back to BS later, so perhaps that's part of it too.
Boring Sword is what I call that game, I can't believe I bought the bundle at whatever point without having played them, I couldn't get 1/2way through the first game...

I tried and tried and tried, but...omg it was SO BORING, and ZERO challenge - "just keep clickingon icons to further the dullass story"

But SVGA!
And full voice acting!
And real instrument soundtrack!
And smooth animations!
And two CD-roms full of content!
And an Arkanoid clone in the installer!
And templars!
etc...

You make me sad. :(

OK guys you've coerced me to replay Broken Sword Directors Cut for my 4th play through. But why is Steam needing 2.4 Gig and GOG only requires 1.3?

I prefer Broken Sword but I played that first so I don't know if that's part of. I prefer the characters, humour and voice acting of Revolutions game.

Either way any fan of the genre should play both remakes.

Funny you mention that, I always liked the series very much. The fourth one is the only one I didn't finish, all the others I had pretty good times with them.

I guess point and click adventures simply are not your kind of genre then. Because they basically always are just clicking icon on icon - it's the way they work. No challenge? The challenge is to find out which item to use whith which item and to do this you have to solve a logical challenge.

Unfortunately this is gone in the GOG version though :(

I did not enjoy Broken Sword either, I found it too linear and too easy with not enough exploring. In general however point-and-click adventures are one of my favourite game genres (mostly humorous point-and-clicks though).
