We’ve been back for 3 months or so now and during that time, we’ve had some good times and some bad times. Some didn’t enjoy the lighter articles we posted and some enjoyed our ability to break some news. Since then, we’ve climbed the mark of passing over tens of thousands of views. Before we get the hankies out, we should do some more shameless promotion.
As you know from browsing the site, we’ll have periodic articles popping up from our other sites. It just so happens that the talented Megan Bethke just finished a review for a great indie game from Belgium called Element4l, which is out on Steam now. Here’s an excerpt:
Walk away. Element4l is a difficult game and being so requires breaks between sessions. Playing the game for a lengthy amount without hours or days away just asks for a broken keyboard. But you’ll come back and you’ll love to hate it. The reward of completing a level will have you jumping for joy. Even completing a small section of a level will have you bowing to the WASD keys. After all you did just spend 30 minutes trying to get your element over one little hill.
We didn’t just want to mention it because of our Belgian roots though (yes, the “.be” in gg3.be stands for Belgium). I’m also pleased to announce that developer I-Illusions have donated a few Steam keys to give away. Since this is a celebratory post, we’ll give them to a few lucky winners this Monday.
Here’s how you can win:
– Step 1) Subscribe to our site. See that little “+Follow” thing either at the top or at the bottom of each page? Click that and leave your email address if you don’t have a WordPress account. We suggest leaving valid contact details, since we’ll need to contact you to claim your prize.
– Step 2) Comment. We’re going to need to know if you actively want a copy of Element4l or if you’re one of our many followers already, so comment and let us know you’re on this. We’ll look at the most thoughtful replies, so we uphold the right to dismiss superfluous comments like “thx” and “game pl0x.”
– (Optional) Twitter. If you’ve done the above, you can also shout to me personally by following my Twitter and leaving me a message: @Daavpuke.
We’ll select the most active responses by Monday and contact the winners. Again, don’t forget to leave a valid address or have a valid public email on your Gravatar account, so that we can contact you. We really do want to contact you if you’ve won; it sucks if we can’t.
