Game: Top 50 on Steamgifts wishlist (price range $25.00 - $50.00+).

Contributor value: required, check out the list of my giveaways for the exact value if you're worried about that.

DO NOT post any answers/hints/links, DO NOT ask for help anywhere on the internet.

DO comment on this thread and the giveaway once you solve the puzzle.

Stage 1: Write down the developers.

Stage 2-?: ?

SOLUTION:

After you solved the first puzzle, you received a link to this photo. You had to delete ".jpg" and you received a hint: 90bx39yg. The mirror was another clue so you were supposed to change that to gy93xb09 and visit the It's too hard puzzle. If you managed to solve it, instead of receiving the link to the giveaway, you received this: "What now?". You didn't actually need to solve the second puzzle, instead you should have taken the first letter/number of each question, put them all together and get the giveaway code: sh6DB.

You need to write multiple developers - "Write down the developers".. plural and shit. You're welcome.

Stuck on 7 and 8. I'm sure I've seen 7, but can not remember what's the name of the game.

44 minutes later: damn, got 7 and 8, I think I did the next step right (got to the "hint"). A bit confused now, I must admit.

I never thought I could get YOU confused. :) Achievement unlocked!

skanda

(2 years ago)

Not for long... One question left in part2.

NB264

(2 years ago*)

Ha, not there yet!

skanda

(2 years ago)

I'm not brute-forcer. There's no way for me to know the answer to Question 2, so I'm not trying to answer it. But that is not confusion by puzzle trick, it's just that I don't own said console and have zero interest in console games. It was fun to try.

NB264

(2 years ago*)

All answers can be easily googleable so you don't have to brute force it.

skanda

(2 years ago)

When you said that, I actually managed to guess the answer, but have no idea what now. So, yeah, another achievement unlocked, you've managed to confuse me 2x in the same puzzle.

Image 6 of step 1 isn't loading...

Seems to work fine here, I tried multiple browsers. Try right click+show image or something like that.

skanda

Now it's working... Oh, well...

NB264 (2 years ago)

punkelias

Q7 - pretty famous american company with more than 20 games released on Steam.

skanda

(2 years ago)

oh, it looked totally indie to me >.<

Suits

(2 years ago)

Well the game isn't mainstream but the studio is. :)

skanda (2 years ago)

50 hours to go, 7 solvers, 4 entries.

bobofatt (Support) (2 years ago)

Dunno 2, 6, 7, or 8. I'm worthless!

Oh noes. Well, there might be some hints for section 1 later on.

skanda

(2 years ago)

You own two of those, start playing awesome games in your library!

skanda

(2 years ago)

Really? haha. This library has been built in like 3 months so... my backlog is quite large!

EDIT: Alright, got those too, thanks :D

Stuck on 2, 4 and 8 in the first part

2 is a very recent game.

skanda

(2 years ago)

Any hint for Q6? :)

bobofatt (Support)

Dog.

skanda

(2 years ago)

bobofatt (Support)

(2 years ago)

Not good enough?:)

skanda

(2 years ago)

I got it :)

bobofatt (Support)

(2 years ago)

I got 2 now, only 4 and 8 left

Probrotector

(2 years ago)

8 should be game of the year every year.

skanda

(2 years ago)

I don't even have the faintest clue what this game is, is it well known? Edit: Nevermind... I feel dumb now.

You have a cute dog.

Thanks, I sure do! :)

skanda

Madovsky (2 years ago)

Cute dog, but now I'm really stuck :)

Tuco (2 years ago*)

Uhm, I solved step one but I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do with the image link I obtained from it. (I'm not really sure the puzzle is still open, to be honest, but I don't care at this point).

It's open for another 24 hours so keep thinking what you could do with the image link. I think the prize should be worth it. :)

skanda

(2 years ago)

Well, I had an idea (two, actually) but they didn't work.

Tuco

xixo22 (2 years ago)

well i solved it but what with the picture now hmmm

Hel09 (2 years ago)

Cute puppy, my looks. :-)

He's not a puppy anymore but he's still cute. :)

hackerkok (2 years ago)

Is any specific knowledge on some subject required to solve this? almost past the image part

Nope, no specific knowledge required so keep going!

skanda

(2 years ago)

Itwasmer (2 years ago)

I solved everything in part 2, but I think I'm missing something...

Yeah, what now?

Tuco

(2 years ago)

That's the question, isn't it?

skanda

(2 years ago)

yep, that's the question. And I have no clue what the answer could be. I thought it had something to do with the sum of the answers, but that didn't work. Especially considering how few questions in step 2 accept different ways to write down the answer, making everything even more confusing.

Tuco

(2 years ago)

Nevermind. Solved.

Tuco

(2 years ago)

Goodie, I'm glad you found it annoy....I mean fun!

skanda

(2 years ago)

skanda (2 years ago)

Solution is now posted.

Got stuck forever at the mirror. ):

Both giveaways were for a game I already had, so no harm done. :D

retsukun

(2 years ago*)

Oh. Delete the '.jpg' part. That certainly was something I didn't even consider trying. The puppy was nice enough, though. No harm done. )
