It’s about that time of the year when people – for various reasons – feel the desire to spend their hard earned money on gifts for their loved ones, colleges, spouses and children.
Here at SpiderOak – being the sort of people that like to dive headlong into the spirit of any holiday (from Valentine’s to Groudhog’s day – thought we would take the opportunity to play to your greedy side much like a choir of angels would play Rock Band by offering some of the almighty ‘free loot’ that we all love so much.
Keeping it simple, we have 22 copies of some rather brilliant Indie games that we would like to pass along this holiday season. The games (10 copies of Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West and 12 copies of World of Goo) are both available for installation through the Steam service and compatible with both Mac and PC*. The games are both by brilliant Indie developers and we are sure you won’t mind supporting their efforts (check further down in this post for video trailers of the games).
To score a copy of one of the games mentioned above, all you have to do is: 1) install the SpiderOak client and sign-up for a free 2GB account; and 2) post your SpiderOak username together with a home-made New Years Poem in the comment section.
An impartial jury of SpiderOak employees will then burn the midnight oil in search of 22 worthy winners and email the lucky ones game of their choice on December 31st.
To ensure that our little contest and what will surely be some of the best New Years inspired poetry seen in decades reaches even the farthest corners of the world, we encourage you to share this contest among your friends via Twitter, Facebook, Carrier Pigeon and horseback as much as you desire.
Godspeed and a Happy New Year in advance from the SpiderOak crew!
