What: pairing people who would like to receive the gift of reading with those who would like to give it–if this goes well, we may try it again.
Who: giftees who would like to play a CoG/HG/HC game but, due to financial circumstances, are unable to; gifters who would like to support the company, authors, and struggling members of its readership.
When: this iteration, requests and donations will be accepted through 31MAY21; ten random drawings will be made on 01JUN21.
Why: everyone is allowed to have their own; the intent is to include fellow IF lovers who may be students, single parents, between jobs, or having a rough patch in any of the many ways that can happen.
How: (for this run, gifts will be made on the Steam platform only )
If you are interested in receiving a gift.
There are only two honor-system conditions.
- You agree to review the game on Steam after you’re finished reading. (You can just click a rating, if you like.)
- At some point in the near or distant future, when you can afford to, you will return the favor by gifting someone a game on this thread to keep the chain going.
If you agree to these, PM me your Steam username and the game you would like to receive. It is important to note that I will need to give the gifter your information in order to complete the transaction.
If you are interested in giving a gift.
PM me with what you’d like to gift. I will pair you with a recipient before 01JUN21 and send you their Steam username and gift preference (if applicable) for you to complete the transaction.
*Feel free to qualify your involvement in any way, i.e. no Heart’s Choice, only Pon Para, etcetera.
In keeping with the spirit of the project, we’ll ask that gifters and giftees be kept as anonymous as possible. Cheers, all, and happy reading.
EDIT: Someone just told me that after you get a game on Steam, you can email CoG to get it unlocked on other platforms.
