Howdy, gang! I've been enjoying making weekly giveaways via small puzzles, and if I keep doing it, making a thread for each one is gonna end up being a total mess in the forums, sooo I figured I'd keep it all in here! Every week, more or less, I'll put up a new 2solve puzzle that leads to a pretty good game - most of the time I'll just outright be buying some cool stuff, I could make y'all go through the extra hoops to get some bundled games, but ehhh. I wanna go above and beyond. Down below'll be the write-up for the newest puzzle, then below that'll be a little chart with the puzzles from past giveaways, if you feel like giving 'em a try for the fun of it. Most of my puzzles are pretty simple - connecting themes, usually related to the game itself. While my puzzles will always be solvable with a bit of thinking or research, I'll fully admit: if you're a fan of the series/game I'm giving away, you'll probably be a bit more likely to figure it out. That's somewhat intentional - while it'll never be a requirement to solve things, as past participants can attest, it's nice for games to go to people who'll enjoy them! Not just collectors. If you're stuck on the current puzzle, and you haven't done the old ones, try 'em. Might help you figure out how my brain works.
The roguelikes will continue until morale improves. It's Risk of Rain Returns this time! After playing it for a bit, I still probably enjoy Risk of Rain 2 more, the platforming aspects aren't that enjoyable for me, but Returns is still a very solid game in its own right, and I have to assume it's a pretty good remake? I never played the original, though. Knowledge of Risk of Rain 2 may help just a tinge, but this one prooobably won't be that hard, if you've figured out my style of puzzle. I've even given TWO clues for each answer - just keep in mind the clues have no relation to each other, other than they both lead to the same solution. The first clues relate to reality in some way, the second clues are all video game-related, FYI. Good luck! Giveaway ends on December 2nd!
Here lies giveaways from the past. A nice and simple chart, game given, link to its puzzle, and the solve percentage and entrants, mostly for the hell of it. I like to keep track of that kind of thing. Numbers are cool. Most recent giveaways are at the top, older at the bottom!

bump for solved!
DD1 was an absolute banger of a game, I need to replay it one day, maybe without crimson court this time. Kinda forgot about DD2 after it became an epic exclusive too, but I heard that the initial release was pretty rough so maybe it's for the best that they had time to fix some stuff before it hit Steam.
Phew. Thankfully, not a game I'm interested in. I'll still try to solve the puzzle but only for that. Thanks for this and the last couple puzzles.
Bump! Good idea about having a thread for all your giveaways, thanks for the generosity! :)
bump for solved, I enjoy your puzzles :) this one took me a bit longer than persona, I don't have much knowledge of the darkest dungeon games.
I have absolutely no idea what I'm supposed to be doing with this puzzle. 🤣
Your puzzles are wonderful:
Your gifts too.
My brain is not, but I know it.
You are compassionate and caring and generous. Your brain is already wonderful without solving puzzles!
I already told you that I'll not add you to my whitelist using those methods.
I can't add you to my whitelist.
You're already there :p
Muscle is Drax, but it's wrong, what should I think?
Make sure there's no space after the word.

Thanks for the puzzle & giveaway.
Bump for solved. Nice to hear that you plan to go on. Your puzzles are quite original and really enjoyable.
Have a bump
-someone giving up for now
getting tired of scouring the wiki to try and find the connection to solve it.
might reattempt later
I'd given up the old puzzles. Now the third shows up makes me trying old ones again.
I'm finally done with the twos but no idea wit the new one. Pretty much delayed brain.
These puzzles are so cool..
bump! now that was a difficult one, but I enjoy these puzzles :D
Bump for the newest giveaway - Inscryption!
In unrelated news, my luck this month is -2.88 gifts. I wonder how accurate that stat actually is...? I'm definitely waiting for the odds to return to my favor once more... it's evened out my overall luck to 'neither unlucky or lucky', though, so I guess I was lucky years ago when I was more active here, haha.
I'm in the red for the fourth month in a row, -5.69 when I add them up.
Where can I see these stats?
I checked and don't see them in the links top left.
To the person who loves to answer every question uninvited but only is friends with gifters smh, I didn't ask you.
The arrow next to your profile picture in the top right, there's a tab under it called 'my stats', it shows some probabilities and overall statistics.
And happy cake day!
Thanks, I got it. I don't understand what affects some stats but I'll be having fun exploring and finding out.
Thank you! 🎂 Hard to believe it's been a whole year already.
Bump for solved. Great puzzle as always!
Bump for inscription puzzle solved
Bump for solved (Inscryption)
Inscryption puzzle (in love with this game, it has been in my wl since I played the demo like 5 times)... stuck on q3 and q7. Am I to stick to arc 1?
Solved 7, still stuck on 3. I dont wanna bruteforce it :(
the spoiler part might be a bit too much information for everyone to see
modififed it a bit, but i mean... tis a spoiler
yep! remember for question 3, the first and second parts are totally separate clues - they both lead to the same answer, obviously, but they're otherwise not related to each other, so don't get confused by that.
I know I know ;; I'm just trying random options I see that may fit but nothing clicks. I did manage to figure 7 out tho! I'll try a bit more later :)
