April Fools’ Giveaway Contest

Jay Barnson, the indie developer working on the RPG Frayed Knights, is having a giveaway tomorrow on indie titles from his games store. (He mostly sells indie RPGs, so this is a good opportunity for people looking to expand their knowledge of the oeuvre.)

The contest rules follow:

I’d like to do a post with people’s silly little ideas of “X Reasons Why Indie Games Rock.” 101 reasons, if we can swing it. I’d like you guys to help come up with that list. I’m looking for little one liners that may be pithy, poignant, silly, sarcastic, but most of all entertaining.  From your perspective. Stuff like:

Indie Games Rock Because:

  • Big Pixels are Sexy!
  • They aren’t afraid of letting you play it before deciding to pay for it.
  • The next time I’m locked inside somebody’s hotel room, I’ll be fully trained on how to escape!

Please include your alias / nickname (I’ll be attributing each one, if I can), and your email address so I can contact you if you win. Submissions must be received by the end of the day on April 1st, and I’ll announce the winner the next day.

The winner will chosen by an entirely partial and opinionated and unfair judge – ME. In the case of duplicate (or extremely similar) submissions, I’ll go with whichever one I received first.

I will buy the winner  any digital download from the Rampant Games website.  (Yes, I’m just an affiliate, so I do have to buy ‘em too…) Plus I’ll throw in a couple of licenses of  Void War, because I can. Plus a copy each for two runners-up.

April 1st is tomorrow, so if you want to enter, you should get cracking!
