Make sure to check the forums first and still haven’t got the answer before asking tho.

The Cinema Rosa
At first there was only one user creating giveaways, so I figured they had a connection and were getting keys from somewhere, but now 2 other users recently created giveaways. I tried searching online, but couldn't find anything. Maybe they are getting review copies?
Did you find out where they were coming from?
This is my guess via googling, there was a kickstarter for the game and it was included as a reward. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1273762308/cinema-rosa-relaunch
thanks for that
I'm not sure why anyone would pay $15 to back a game and then give it away here. You would think they would have been interested in the game to spend that much money and there isn't much incentive to give it here since $15 is the full retail value.
I think it is more likely that the dev gave some keys to a group that does reviews and they are giving copies away instead of playing and reviewing it.
Edit: Also, two users have given more than one copy each. It is highly unlikely that they bought multiple copies for $15 each in a kickstarter before the game was made to give away here.
That’s fair, was my personal speculation afterall :P
Many KS games also provide a DRM-free version (like this one). So they can give away the Steam key for CV and still play the game.
[Edit: I agree that based on your edit there could be more going on, like a friend of the dev or something.]
Well, both users who made more than one copies are members of the Original Trader's Group, so review keys sold instead of reviewed is a pretty big possibility, given the past of its owner.
No, I never found out.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun
I've been seeing increasing number of giveaways for this game and I am trying to get my hands on one copy for a quite some time. Is or was there some special offer for this game? Thanks in advance.
Last time I saw it was $12 tier in humble caffeine bundle.
I've got it recently from Lootboy Pack, but it's extremely extremely rare to get anything good from these packs, mostly free or rebundled games.
I got it from a bonus pack after buying XX amount of packs.
If i remember right it can be in the Fanatical Mystery Eggs offer too

10 cents on DIG
Thank you. I did not know of that site! Is it trustworthy?
So far, yes, keys work, though their business practice is a mix between proper (get keys from developers) and shady (reselling games from other bundle sites)

Sigma Theory: Global Cold War?
ITAD has nothing and I don't see it going cheap anywhere.
No idea, but my guess is developer giving out keys to promote their games, and people who got keys make giveaways here to promote their group/gain CV here
Pity. At least it wasn't me being dumb! Thanks.
So I guess dev pre-release giveaways arent considered "giveaways" when it comes to SG designating games with no CV?
That's right, since not everyone can gat a key from them, and to be fair to people who bought the game to giveaway later. Only giveaways where anyone can participate counts.
Pony Island seems to be constantly given away here
It's a fairly common game given in the Fanatical mystery bundles. Not sure if it's cheaply available anywhere else.
I think Pony Island is free to download without DRM?

How did you find this "sister site" giveaway? I don't see it on their main page(
Btw, "All out! There are no more keys left in this giveaway!'
I think it's only for giveaways which they have enough keys for, to me it looks like it won't be given away on Steelseries this time.
Thanks for the tipp. Alas, as Wildernesss already mentioned above, they seem to be all out of keys for this one.
Isbarah. Been seeing this come up a few times in the past few days. And it is a wishlist one too.
