Hi guys,
since I cant see a dedicated thread for it (and to prevent that we are getting flooded by single threads), I just open.

Here you can drop gems on sale, that many maybe overlook or discuss the Adventure clues.

Dont forget to get through your daily discovery que for a free steam card.

With that being said:

All hints have been deciphered and the quest is done. Here you find the names for the fake games you must navigate to.
If you have a hard time, just search for "TH.4X" which is the price for all the Clorthax games.

You can't see a thread which is literally named "STEAM SUMMER SALE 2022" and is on top of the discussions?

Well, in my defense it just had "Give me some act... I mean discounts." as text in it. That is what I ment with flood of single threads. When I see the other one gets more traction, I will close this thread :)

First solution is correct though you have to find it through the clue page and click on it.

Which loads abysmally at the moment XD

NO. It is completeley random. you can find it anywhere actually. But Dead Seagull means something linked to the FARMING or OPEN WORLD games. So, you might wanna check both sections and scroll down to the bottom of the page again like in my GUIDE https://www.steamgifts.com/go/comment/7PNUzZB . But, anywhere/any game CATEGORY should be fine.

I could proceed later, when the game appeared randomly. After that I just used the script to finish the complete quest in one go.

Same, I looked around with the arrows in one or two categories and they all appeared randomly after that.

Bass Ain't Bitin' 2022 [Realistic > Fishing]

I don't see it on the Sports page, I don't see it in the store search, best I could to is find in on steamdb to confirm it exists.
Anyone with a similar problem?

[edit] I found it eventually, after reloading the page several times. Here's what I think happened: the games are shown five at a time. But I have 4 (other) games from Fishing category ignored, so I am guessing steam rounds that down so that these four AND Bass Ain't Bitin' 2022 were not showing in the carousel. But maybe it's randomised, because it eventually did show up after some page reloads.

[edit2] or maybe it's just that all these games are fake and the event is bugged. anyway several reloads and/or revisits to the event page seem to help.

I made all of these tasks for 2 accounts and I have to say that its totally random + you can find the right game in any genre and sub-genre; it doesnt matter where you go, you just need to look carefully. Rewards were the same.

The categories where they're located appear to be inconsistent... when trying to find "Actually... Frankenstein's Monster Edition," I first saw it under Casual, and when checking to see if it'd still be there upon refreshing, I instead found it under Action. After refreshing and finding its location a few more times, it ended up being under a different category each time, although it was always under Controller-Friendly.

Thanks, this helped me know what I was looking for.
I kinda want Pro Poker Amateur to be real now, the concept of trying to play "poker" but the cards are weird and rules are random sounds pretty interesting. And It's Probably Fine might be a pretty fun adventure game from the premise. Valve has no right to blue ball us like this.

Only vaguely related, but there's also a new Seasonal Badge of which you can purchase levels in the Steam Points Shop. Some nice high tier ones but more points than I would spend, so jellybeans it is!

I'm currently too dumb/low energy for this but I guess even if you know the app ID of the fake games, like with that steam cup badge you need to find them somewhere on the sale page, huh. Almost 2am, I best catch some sleep XD

Since the other thread is more of a sales thread I'm happy to see this one though.

You can easily find the made up games by searching "TH.4X" since that's what they cost

You can't. They aren't show in the search results until you'll discover them manually. Even if you know an exact name.

Ctrl-F is only working within a page. You still need to load the needed item manually which is the most tedious part.

Not necessarily. I've seen them in almost all tabs. But "Upcoming" is less crowded so chances are high to get it there.
