Default Xmas giveaway: Runaway, A Road Adventure & Runaway, The Dream of The Turtle (Steam)

Today I bought the Pendulo Adventure Pack on Steam for the newest Runaway game and The Next BIG Thing. I didn't expect to get extra copies of the two Runaway games I already owned because I thought Steam only did that with certain games. Alas, there they sit in my Steam Inventory so it appears I can gift them (I hope so anyway or I'm in for some embarrassment!).

Rather than give them away on the Steam forums, I thought I'd give them away to some true adventure gamers here. So for the next 24 hours, if you don't have these games, DO have Steam, and want them, put your name in this thread! All I'll need from the winner is their Steam username as you have to have someone on your friends list apparently to send the game.

This competition gifts BOTH games to one person unless you say you have one already (please specify if so!), in which case if you are drawn out, I'll give the game you have to someone else.

That's very cool of you. I've been very interested in playing these.

My steam username is louiedog.

Thanks! And good luck, everyone.

Unfortunately, with limited exceptions, you can't gift games like this in a package that you already own. Your giveaway may be for naught. Sorry.

OK, I thought this too and yet my Steam Inventory says I can gift them.





IF I can't I apologise but when I click "Send Gift" it gives me the option to send to someone in my friends list (on which is only one person who doesn't use Steam much).

I'll know tomorrow for sure when I pick a winner but if not then I'll apologise again and send Steam a very angry complaint letter.

Actually, it looks like Steam may have changed things. I've never seen a screen like that before. That's awesome. Good luck to the winner.

My Steam is Fantasysci5

I've just drawn the few names out of a hat (OK, a bowl) and the winner is Fantasysci5!

I've sent an add request on Steam and will send the games along as soon as it's accepted.

Aww, thank you so much! I've accepted you, and can't wait to try the first one. You can give the 2nd game to someone else here, if you'd like.

Nah, the offer was both games so long as one wasn't already owned by the winner.

I just sent them, think you have to accept them, not sure if you get an automatic message or email, but enjoy the games.
