    Secret Santa Super Deluxe Platinum Edition 2016


    A bit later than normal this year, but it's time for our annual games giveaway in the form of Secret Santa! Only instead of Christmas it's going to be New Years... get over it and get excited!

    The DLP Secret Santa has had a strong run the last few years. If you're curious to read more about the history, check out last years post (where Jon did a fantastic job, thanks @Jon). Retroactive thanks to @Midknight as well for getting the whole thing started. Preemptive thanks to @Oz because he's going to be doing a ton this year.

    But TL;DR? Members of DLP have always been generous during the holidays and have made it possible to have this event every year for the past several years. If this year is anything like previous years then there will be plenty of games to go around - therefore, you do not have to provide a game in order to get one.

    Let me repeat that. You do not have to provide a game in order to receive one. Not saying it's a promise, but yeah... put your hand up if you want a game, because in the past there's been plenty to go around.

    How To Play

    If you want to provide a game, then post with the game name.

    Most people who provide games will do so as either a steam gift or a key, so if you want to provide a game via another method check first!

    If there is a specific game you want to receive, then post requesting it (doesn't mean you'll get it for sure!).

    Most provided games will be accessible via Steam, so if you don't have Steam you should get it!

    EVERYONE - Make sure you are a member of the DLP Steam Group. If you aren't then post your steam username and someone will be in touch to sort you out.

    EVERYONE - Have your Steam Profile Link in your signature and set your profile to public.

    EVERYONE - Have at least a handful of games in your Steam Wish List.

    Deadline is New Years this time, not Christmas!

    Games I will provide via Steam Gifts:
    Deponia x2
    Advent Rising
    Deus Ex: GOTY
    Super Meat Boy
    Guacamelee
    Munin
    Orcs Must Die!
    Psychonauts

    Game I will provide via Key:
    Mad Max

    ...I had two other higher quality games I'd bought as well at some point, but I appear to have given them away (or activated them). Found one of them, Mad Max. That'll be good enough.

    I don't have to receive a game to be happy - I've got plenty.

    Having a surprise dental bill and a dead TV to replace puts a bit of a hole in Santa's sack, but...

    I do have a copy of The Magic Circle
    and
    Sword of Asumi: Deluxe Edition to offer.


    This Christmas, I'd just like...
    ...for the DLP Steam group to finally get an icon.

    Other versions are here, but those two were the favorites.
    Although I wouldn't mind getting my hands on Axiom Verge. :eek:
    The soundtrack is excellent, if you're a fan of the chiptune genre. It even got a vinyl release.

    I still love those icons. Particularly the book!joystick with atari vibes and a green button. I vote either transparent or black background, our amazing shade of green might clash. ^^

    Transparent works while keeping the DLP green for the button. It's quite sexy.

    Does anyone know a good way to bypass the region lock on Steam gifts? Is purchasing through an alternate vendor the only solution?

    I will put my hand up for a game. Every year, I swear, Christmas comes round and I'm broke.

    I was kinda worried this wasn't going to happen this year. I had messaged Jon about it a few days back but never heard anything, good to see my fears were unwarranted. Been a rough year for me and I haven't been as online of late because of family drama but this place has gotten me through some rough times. Always happy to give back.

    This year I'm tossing a few games into the pile:
    1x Nuclear Throne
    3x Secret Ponchos
    1x Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
    1x Mark of the Ninja
    2x Nation Red
    1x Frozen Synapse

    I'll be honest, I dropped the ball this year. The sorting for secret santa can get pretty tiring and I kinda burnt out on it after the past few years. A big thank you to Ched and Oz for stepping in and taking the reigns this year.

    It's not an obligation for you to have to do it every year and it shouldn't feel like one. It's a great annual tradition but people shouldn't expect it or take it for granted. The fact that Ched and Oz stepped in is a testament to how cool the tradition.

    So yeah, cheers to all y'all.

    I'd like to toss my name into the hat. Being strapped for cash at the moment, however, I can't really afford to put a game into the pool (until after Christmas at least), and I'd feel really bad if I didn't offer something.

    So instead for my secret Santa, I offer words - a short story, poem, haiku, whatever - or a short musical composition, in a style/genre (and fandom, for a short story) of the Santee's choosing, which would be done by the end of January.

    As for games, surprise me! I enjoy lore driven games such as RPGs, with a preference for Sci-fi/Fantasy settings.


    Edit: If it isn't too much hassle, I'd actually like to stake a claim on the copy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, donated by Nauro. The game looks like it'd be right up my alley, but I haven't actually had a chance to buy it myself.

    Sadly broke this year so I have nothing that can be thrown in. However if no one else wants it I'd gladly claim that copy of The Magic Circle. Been in my top 5 on my wishlist for over a year.

    This poor college student would love to have a copy of Fallout 4 or that Witcher 3 if that's not too much of a burden! Freedom is here for a few days to waste playing video games!

    Thanks for your generosity Jamven!

    Are those Jurassic Park DLC three different DLC or three DLC of the same kind (and need to be given to three different people)?

    Rock on!
