I see all those "Niche - a genetics survival game" giveaways and would like to know where all the keys come from.
Humble Sweet Farm Bundle Tier 1
Thank you very much, @ganbatte
There are a dozen very short timed Tumblestone GAs that appeared in the last hour. Normally I would guess, they come from a HumbleBundle Freebie, but I don't find anything there. Is it given away for free somewhere else?
Ah ok. No wonder I didn't find any information or thread about it. Thanks a lot!
Trials also been given a lot (you can get such a code when you own it), gifters mistake it for the real thing, thus a false giveaway.
There are few games from "House of 1000 Doors" and "Small Town Terrors" series, some kind of adventure games bundle I missed?
Of the recent giveaways for both games within the last week, 3 of the giveaways were made by the same person. Most likely they were keys which they had stored over time from old bundles or were cheap games possibly from the grey market.
ohh, thanks a lot, I have already checked every page I know and there was nothing there and I was getting anxious a bit ;)
if you're interested in the archives of the giveaways made.
Wow, Yeah I am interested and haven't discovered "archive" section yet, thank you a lot :)
You're welcome rzaba!
Perhaps some are from https://www.fanatical.com/en/pick-and-mix/hidden-object-pick-and-mix
Actually I asked giveaway creator and it was an old bundle, but still I missed this one, thanks! :)
BTW there's new bundle on fanatic, also pretty nice: https://www.fanatical.com/en/pick-and-mix/staff-picks-build-your-own-bundle
3 ga last 2 days, 2 of its actual now...
I suggest you to ask the GA creator, as they did all the giveaways in the past 4 months solely
A couple of them all popped up in the last hour.
Hollow knight ?
From the Humble Bundle Australia Fire Relief Bundle https://www.humblebundle.com/games/australia-fire-relief
Is there a bundle or something with Primal Carnage: Extinction at the moment?
Yes, same bundle as above - Humble Bundle Australia Fire Relief Bundle.
Thank you~ I remember looking at that bundle already but must have missed it
Hacknet - Labyrinths?
Same as the other games asked above. Humble Bundle :)
I am surprised that someone answer this question after the 4th that question for a game from the same bundle :-D
Masquerada: Songs and Shadows?
(I just hope that people aren't mixing it up with Masquerade: The Baubles of Doom from the current Humble bundle).
The Adventure Pals ?
Hand of fate 2?
A Goo Adventure?
Thanks for that I had the same query
Europa Universalis IV? Thx
excellent! ty so much
Suicide Guy? Been seeing it a lot, trying hard to win one.
According Barter, givekeydotru has been giving those keys.
Thank you. :D Someone kind here just forwarded me a 🎁 key, I am happy.
Saw a few Disgraced recently. Was there a new bundle for it?
Groupees Build a Bundle 66
Happy Cakeday =) =) =)
Happy cake day :o)
Coffee Crisis ? A lot of giveaway of this game this morning...
I think Alienware might have received more keys
They gave them away in December but sometimes they get more and add them at a later date.
I got mine from there so it keep saying I already have it, so can't verify it there is more keys at AWA or not.
https://victorage.gg/giveaway/1/overview i found here and its work
ok, thanks :)
Only small amount of keys left while I'm seeing giveaways of 10+ copies here. Splendid :(
As usual, generous gifters being generous... with freebies. Nothing new, nothing surprising.
If else, I'd be more surprised (worried, even, in a "is the world ending?" kind of way) if they didn't.
I will never understand these people gifting mostly freebies... and making multiple accounts (lootboy, chrono, etc) to giveaway more and more of the same freebies ! We definitely not have the same meaning of gifting...
worst I saw was 37 GA of that game from the same person :|
BL the ones with 10+ copies because of made 10+ accounts, at one site, to grab the free stuff.
I seen 30 and 40 from the highest 2 users..... thats so sick
Yup, did that already :)
I was gonna try to get a copy but had to get my morning coffee and missed it!
Awwww... what a crisis! Lol
Haha sorry but that really made me laugh for some reason!
Littlebigsoko > gamehag.
Kings' Cross > giveaway.su.
Some giveaways and "generous people" lol.
4 copy, level 6, group only :D got that freebie locked up harder than most princesses

Vendetta - Curse of Raven's Cry?
on the Russian trading platform "Plati.ru"(aka " Plati.Market") keys are sold for 13-17 rubles($0,21-$0,27)
on the Gamivo trading platform keys are sold for $0.59-$0.60
Thnak you :)
I will pass anyway as there is no paypal and they are selling access to accounts (like Red Dead Redemption 2 for two bucks)
I bought the Deluxe version from Gamivo's 90% off event today for €0.08. I assume most of the GAs came from there.
root777 edited his post and earlier there was nothing about gamivo and yeah, gamivo looks pretty fine. I have already bought game and there was no issues. Still this "plati" looks suspicious :)
So which shady site is mass giving away Owl Simulator?
Explains it all. Thanks.
Unforgiving Trials: The Space Crusade??
Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars? Omg, I HAVE TO HAVE IT!
It's from an old Humble Monthly (March 2016), keys are given retroactively
This comment was deleted 3 weeks ago.
All these giveaways just posted (including Grotesque Tactics 2, Obulis, etc) look kinda sus ... All Lvl 1, all for only 1 hour and all the giveaway creators have have a random number at the end of the name (not that I'm one to talk in that department).
They were also all created 4 months ago. All created on September 10th.
does it really matter if bots make giveaways? I'd rather them make them than enter them
But they are entering them.
There seem to be at least 174, if you follow their friends.
Another bots: all Placebo Effect GA right now.
Can I post their accounts here or is it against the SG rules?
Thank you for the info ;)
And reason as multiple accounts or other?
It is a BOTFarm of about 500 bots.
Yeah I did that
Normaly only one user sits behind them and if he would only give it would be "only" Multiaccounting, in a way not much have something against it :-D, but each of the accounts have the 400 points and use them for sure too.
Multiaccounts aren't made to be generous, they are made to get something, have a advantage or earn something.
i believe in this case - since they are "gifting" - user data like E-mail address is their aim. the victims would be the winner of those GAs.
wasnt there recently a thread about this? Someone reported getting spammy mails even though this mail address is only used for SG and nothing else... so only someone this person won their GA from could know their address.
The email adresses are maybe a "little bonus" for the bot owner but https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/EhJvw/where-are-those-giveaways-coming-from/search?page=72#SXiIgfM and https://www.steamgifts.com/discussion/EhJvw/where-are-those-giveaways-coming-from/search?page=72#mH1JSvh
i see... (didnt see those posts before)
hopefully all his bots can be found and banned
Edit: now there is a whole thread about this: here
looks like they did
I know the bot thing is over, but I thought your idea worth a reply.
There is no benefit of making giveaway with bots, as their owner could get all the email addresses the flock could - without the need of make and keep up hundreds of bot accounts. Also, for the sake of random spammy emails, one could get tens of thousands of emails on the dark web pretty cheaply - making giveaways and giving out games is an extra effort of time, money and energy. ( Regarding the user who got the spam - it's more likely that one of their winners 0registered their email for random stuff. SG is highly inefficient to farm emails for things that don't require SG/Steam user emails)
since im not knowledgable in those things i thought it was a possibility as i remembered that one thread i mentioned. it made sense to me... cause i couldnt think of any other reason as to why a bot would give away games....
but thanks for pointing it out. its never to late to learn new things :)
Theres a new set that just posted a little bit ago too, the giveaways in question were for Bad Shooter 2, Placebo Effect, and Hard Minus, 29 bot accounts on those 3 alone. All created 3 or 4 weeks ago on the same dates. Nearly every single one of their steam accounts shows the last 3 recent games played as Postal, CSGO, and Hitman 2, with near identical playtimes. All of the profiles using some kind of lowish resolution box art / move poster. Each of their Steam profiles also basically says that they are a bot as well. Never seen anything quite like it before on SG.
Additionally, on those 29 accounts, all 6 of their wins were never redeemed on their respective accounts.
