Free Roguelike Giveaways for the Holidays on the Roguelike Steam Group!

The Roguelike (RGLK) Community Group on Steam is giving away 3 free Steam games for the holidays!  How do I know?  Because I'm the one giving them away!

The games are "Hack, Slash, Loot" (item), "Dungeons of Dredmor" (item) and "The Binding of Isaac+Wrath of the Lamb DLC" (redeemable code).

All you have to do to win, is have a Steam account (register for free), join the group and wait for Christmas!

Winners will be drawn randomly.  If you have a preference, put it on your wishlist!  If you already own all these games, you'll be skipped and another number will be drawn.  Winners will be announced after all prizes are successfully claimed.

Aside from that benefits of joining the group include announcements, discussions, events and contests related to Roguelike-ry as well as a community of players who share a similar love of exploring dungeons and being killed by that horse on the 7th floor when I tried to feed it an apple!  Seriously, what's up with that?

I'm not making any money or raking advertising dollars in off this so the only thing I have to gain is more souls to offer up to Huan Ti in my continuing search for the Amulet of- I mean nothing...absolutely nothing to all.

Merry Dungeoning!

Holiday greetings, fellow Rogues!

In case you're not aware, there are currently a lot of great sales on Steam for Roguelike games, including Hack, Slash, Loot, The Binding of Isaac, Krater, Dungeons of Dredmor and FTL (Faster than Light).  Of those games, you'll probably find HSL to be the most traditional roguelike of the bunch.

Also, Humble Bundle 7 is currently on sale for 11 more days and it's full of dungeoning goodness!

It includes 2 platform/puzzle titles Snapshot & Closure, Shank 2 ( a 2D BeatemUp), Indiegame: The Movie (a documentary film), The Binding of Isaac (a non-traditional Roguelike) and if you pay more than the average (about $6.41 atm) then you also get Legend of Grimlock, a 3d dungeon crawler as well as Dungeon Defenders along with all the DLC packs!

Steam fans, be sure to check out our Roguelike (RGLK) community/group on Steam for Roguelike news, discussions, giveaways and contests!  And remember, you gotta be in it to win it!  So join our Steam group today!  I'm not saying there might be some holiday giveaways but...there might be some holiday giveaways...know what I mean?  All you have to be a member.
