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.

kusumahendra: Also, if anyone wants to play a JRPG, there is The Last Remnant there. It's really good. I haven't finish it, but so far it's very enjoyable. Interesting world, good story, nice battle system. For me the only downside is the whiny main character. But it's bearable, especially since everything else is so good. I really recommend that game

ChaunceyK: When you say JRPG, do you also mean....turn-based combat? I'd look it up myself but I'm heading out to work.
It's kind of turn based? Well it is kinda turned based but you tend to control groups & stuff.
Wiki: "During a battle, each enemy from the world screen is represented by a group, or "union", of enemies ranging from one to five individual units; similarly the player's forces are composed of multiple unions of three to five units each. The skills of the units in the player's unions, which include both story characters and hireable units that do not appear outside of battle, vary according to different parameters."

It is turn based combat. But instead of controlling individual, you control group of fighters.

For example, lets say your party consists of 3 groups. You can determine who goes to which group, either one of important character or someone you hire from local guild.

In battle, you issue order to each group. Order be like 'attack using special tech', or 'go with magic' or like 'assist our friends'. After every group got their command, you execute it. This is where interesting happens

Every group (yours and enemies) have dynamic position on battle map. If you order a group to attack, it will run towards chosen enemies and attack when they are close enough. This behaviour opens up a tricky gameplay since your path can get cutted by other enemy group resulting they are flanking you. You can also get locked in battle and forced to fight. Your success and failure in executing command also affect overall morale of your party.

I really like this dynamic combat system. If you are OK with turn based combat, you should give this one a try. It's a refreshing take on traditional combat system

zeogold: ....oh, fine.
Can I at least keep ChaunceyK here? Please? Pretty please?
Granted! ;)

BTW: I recommend "One Finger Death Punch". It's simple to use (one mouse button only) but takes some concentration and coordination to master it. Also it has some nice grafik style, cool sound effects and I consider it to be quite addictive.

Hey zeo, you know you have A Virus Named Tom on the list twice? It's alphabetized under A and again under V.

Probably it just has spreaded :)

kusumahendra: Anyone knows the difference between Cave Story + and the free version?
I beat the free version back then before Cave Story + come to existence. I know + version was released some time ago but I don't know the difference between the two

Also, if anyone wants to play a JRPG, there is The Last Remnant there. It's really good. I haven't finish it, but so far it's very enjoyable. Interesting world, good story, nice battle system.

omega64: New graphics, music and some content. You can switch between the artstyles and 3 soundtracks whenever you want.
Isn't there, like, some 5 different versions, each with different content or something like that?

Gerin: Hey zeo, you know you have A Virus Named Tom on the list twice? It's alphabetized under A and again under V.
Y'know, I was WONDERING where the second copy of it went. When I added it, I was thinking "Gee, wasn't there another one of these still on the list...?" Thanks for pointing it out.
I'll just shift both over to the "V" section. Probably should dagger 'em too, given the scope of the reviews.

I hope not. My brother's name is Tom and I wouldn't advise anyone to get near him.

zeogold: Wizardry 6+7 added, courtesy of JunglePredator.

BlackThorny: Hi, May I ask for Wizardry 6+7, thanks in advance JunglePredator!
edit: also Risen. Been pondering about it for a while, might as well :)
Granted.

5 different contents? Not sure a one man developer could manage that.

All I can find on the net is different skin for each difficulties setting, an unlock-able female protagonist with new dialog, few new game modes, and re-addition of a level that were cut in free version along with new graphic and music. I think I played enough of this game that I don't need to do another run since the only difference that interest me is that one additional level.

But if there are people here who haven't play this gem, go get it. This is a solid good platformer, quite long with good story and additional twist in + mode. And for it's historical value, this is the game that kickstarts indie gaming scene to it's current popularity, the one that made people realize that a single person can make a good game

See now this wouldn't be problem if you just typed the game name into a "have" text file & used sort.
I get the feeling you're using GOG chat to organize the list. O.O
I must insist you switch to a text only file in your home folder & use sort EVERYTIME a new item is added.

3 versions, freeware, plus and 3d. 3d is the same as plus except with 3d effects added. Looks... different.
