Greetings, folks. Inspired by The Community Giveaway, first started by IAmSinistar, then carried on by moonshineshadow, I have decided to open up my own, but with non-GOG keys.
This giveaway was made possible by the amazing sharonbn. He opened up a giveaway here with some 90+ games to giveaway, but the poor guy got swarmed with scammers. He then entrusted me with these keys, I threw in a couple of my own, and thus is how it started. Since then, a whole slew of lovely community members have shown up to throw in theirs as well, and the list has more than doubled in size and continues to grow.
*****RULES*****
READ THESE BEFORE ASKING FOR ANYTHING!

1. Keys are given AT MY DISCRETION. If you want to be the judge on where your keys go, either open up your own giveaway or go to the Non-GOG Gifting Thread.

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. If you don't like it, too bad. Find somewhere else to get games.

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.

7. As a general rule of thumb, the limit per month is 2-3 games. I may be lenient depending on the special conditions listed in rule 14, and if there are a lot of games, I may remove the limit altogether.

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

9. 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 want to help, flag their comment as spam and keep on moving.
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.

10. 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).

11. All keys from non-GOG sources are accepted. If you wish to donate a GOG key, you can PM it to me and it will be added on the GOG edition of this giveaway.

12. Sometimes, packs will be added. This means that the key will contain multiple games which cannot be separated, so if you ask for it, know that you're getting everything on it. I will count packs as one game.

13. In post #4 in the "retired keys" link are a list of keys which are being "retired". This means that these keys are freebies that have been daggered for an unusually long time or are otherwise hard to get rid of (I'll try to use good judgement on this - for example, I probably wouldn't retire Her Story if it's been on the list for 8 months without going anywhere, but I'd consider retiring a Digital Homicide game that hasn't gone anywhere for 3). They have been moved to this link to save space in the main list. In the interest of ensuring that these games go to a good home, I'll be finding other venues to give them away on and using them to try to bring people to GOG. Please be aware that retired keys can disappear at any time without warning. If you are a donor, please be aware that you might not receive thanks for a retired key since I can't guarantee I'll be able to convince the recipient to join the forum or even GOG in general, though I will inform them where it comes from. If you are making a donation and you do not wish for something in it to be retired, please let me know and I will respect this request.
As this is a new feature that I'm trying to do my best with (especially after losing contact with most of the donors), I'm definitely open to suggestions and feedback from the community.

14. Things that will cause me to be lenient with the limit are:
- Asking for DLC
- Asking for a game that has recieved lots of negative reviews
- Winning one of my games/competitions
- Asking for a game that was recently given away for free
- Asking for a Desura or itch.io game
- Asking for a game in retirement
To make it clearer, games which don't count toward the limit will be marked with a dagger (†).

IMPORTANT WARNINGS:
I will NEVER ask for keys to be resent. Do NOT give them if I appear to be requesting this.

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.

omega64: It might turn into the censored version when you redeem it, pretty sure that happened with some games.

apehater: as far as i get it, there is no censored german version. its just blocked in germany
Sad that you can't get it to work. :l

kusumahendra: Umm, yeah. Gameplay wise it is closer to fps from the video. Yet they advertise the game as atmospheric adventure so I think it's probably not combat heavy? I don't know. As I say I haven't played it. I just find it interesting and bring attention to it
It is, you have weapons with a LONG reloading speed though, so a lot of it is focused on dodging enemy shots.

Stealth is also possible using a bow.

I bought this once on humble but it was when the keys where redeemed BY humble automatically so technically it was activated from US. This also worked with "Saints Row 3" THEN. Since I know for a fact that the "Saints Row 3" key from the previous humble bundle could not be activated I am pretty sure that DI won't work either.

Quick translation of what this list is all about:

Since about an hour ago many games (listed below) were pulled from the German steam store. The games listed are mostly games that are on the Index. Also bundles containing these games were removed. Also key activation has been blocked for most of the games.

Why do you have a german account? I assume you vpn if you're actually from cuba... but wouldn't some where with more inventory or cheaper prices make sense?

I just translated but according to this it is assumed they were pulled in Germany (this only concerns the German store page) because the games are listed on the "Index" (it's a list here in Germany that lists games and movies which are restricted until you've proven your age - there also is a special Index list which lists games which are not allowed to sell at all in Germany). You are not allowed to advertize those games/movies but as a grown up you can ask for them and you' may get them if you can prove your age. To do this in a digital store you'll have to add age verification features.

(Hopefully it is understandable what I wanted to say - this is really hard for me to write in English)
