*CLOSED* Giveaway: Don’t Starve + Reign of Giants DLC

Don't Starve and Reign of Giants in my Steam Inventory

The last giveaway for my ‘Christmas in July Giveaways’ is Don’t Starve PLUS the Reign of Giants DLC! I haven’t played more than 30 minutes of this game so I don’t have a lot to say about it. I’d hoped to get in game time over the weekend but real life was BUSY! So, let’s see what the Steam store page says about this game.

Don’t Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic.
You play as Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.
Enter a strange and unexplored world full of strange creatures, dangers, and surprises. Gather resources to craft items and structures that match your survival style. Play your way as you unravel the mysteries of this strange land.

Key Features:

  • Uncompromising Survival & World Exploration:No instructions. No help. No hand holding. Start with nothing and craft, hunt, research, farm and fight to survive.
  • Dark and Whimsical Visuals:2D characters and odd creatures inhabiting a unique 3D world.
  • Randomly Generated New Worlds:Want a new map? No problem! At any time you can generate a new living and breathing world that hates you and wants you to die.


This game isn’t just for PC users. Here are the system specs, taken straight from the Steam store page.

OS:Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8
Processor:1.7+ GHz or better

So how does this giveaway work?

  • You have to have Steam to play the game as I’ll be gifting the winner the game through Steam. There will be instructions in the email explaining how to download Steam in case you don’t have it already. Steam is a free download.
  • The winner will have to use a valid email address when commenting (not IN the comment itself, just in the input box you have to fill out TO comment so it’s kept private) so I can send the download link for the game. I won’t sell or give your email address to anyone, promise. If you’re signed in to WordPress when you comment make sure the email associated with your WordPress profile is a valid one that you can check.
  • You have to leave a comment on this post in order for me to enter you into a random draw to win the game.
  • Oh, and you need an internet connection to download the game.

– You don’t have to be my Steam friend in order for me to gift the game to you because Steam allows for people to send gifts to email addresses, not just through the client. If you want to add me as a Steam friend, that’s cool. Not required though.

– I will assign each person who comments a number and then enter the numbers in a Random Number Generator to determine the winner. Multiple comments from the same person won’t increase your chances of winning. In other words, if you comment 187 times you’re still only getting one entry number assigned to you.

This giveaway starts as soon as I publish this post (8AM CST on 07/28/14) and runs through (Midnight CST 07/31/14  ). I will then use the RNG linked above to draw a winner. I’ll email the winner Friday, August 1st and if I haven’t heard from them by Saturday night I’ll draw for a new winner on Sunday. Sound fair?

Comment below for a chance to win. Good luck and DON’T STARVE!!!


EDITING TO ADD: Giveaway is over and a winner has been drawn! Thanks for entering!
