Summer Goblin and Coins marathon

Hello! It's me again with another GnC marathon. Let's hope more people gets involved this time, as I think we all had fun watching people play the last time and I hope they found their awards/gifts fair and to their liking.

In short,

  • we're playing the game called Goblin and Coins,
  • recording it and posting to YouTube as public videos.
  • Description needs to have your SG username so I know it's your account (I do allow a member of your household to play "for you" as long as they use your Steam/YouTube account).
  • Then you post link(s) to your video(s) here in a comment, and your username must match the username in YouTube description for the video(s).
  • In the end I'll create a train and invite eligible people (and write down the list in the giveaway desc to prevent leaking and rules breaking).
  • If you've already recorded videos for a previous event, you can re-use them now or make new ones if you wanna do it differently.
  • Don't delete your videos because you'll be able to use them again if there's a next event!

This time the system is going to be a bit different, to allow for more flexibility. I'm going to create a one-way train, and boarding will start from the back, so people who are invited in the last car will have access only to that wagon (giveaway), but someone who's invited into the first class will have access to the entire train that comes after that car. I hope it's clear, but just in case, here's a table:

Car number Giveaway Need to finish... Bonus
1 Quantum Break (+2+3+...) world5 w/ facecam No bonus
2 Dark Souls III (+3+4+...) world4 w/ facecam OR world5 w/ just commentary Hector
3 Rise of Tomb Raider (+4+5+...) world3 w/ facecam OR world4 w/ just commentary The Last Station
4 A New Frontier (+5+6+...). world2 w/ facecam OR world3 w/ just commentary Kentucky Route Zero
5 Rust (+6+7+...). world1 w/ facecam OR world2 w/ just commentary A Story About My Uncle
6 Steamworld Heist (+7+8+...) world1 w/ just commentary No bonus
7-10 Smaller games Solve the puzzle ...

and there's also a graphical representation attached to this post!

I will also create bunch of daily freebies, so stick around and check the first reply often. If there are any questions, feel free to ask... or you can check the previous event and read some tips and hints on recording, playing the game and so on.


How to record your gameplay?

  • You need a software specialized for recording or a hardware capability implemented in your GPU drivers.
  • For software solutions (might experience stuttering and bad framrates on low end computers) look up Fraps, OBS, Xsplit or SmartPixel and see what's best for you.
  • Hardware solutions include H264 chips inside of your GPU that are utilized through GeforeExperience (nVidia cards) or AMD gaming evolved for AMD cards. You might have these already installed alongside your latest drivers.
  • There are many tutorials on how to use these apps and it's not hard at all (specially if you're not using a webcam to show your face inside of the video (face cam)).

Entries closing on July 20th. Invites will be sent before July 30th.

If you want your videos to appear in the game hub too (http://steamcommunity.com/app/551580/videos/) you have to go to your steam profile/videos and add them from there. It's easy enough, just connect to your youtube account (log in), select the video and select the game it's associated to, then click "add". That's it. Connection is not permanent, you can log out afterwards, add videos from other accounts later and so on.

It might sound weird, but I don't really understand how this works.
Can anybody kindly explain this? :)

2 years ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Might be a bit confusing because I was relaying on people knowing about the first thread/event. In short

  1. You play the game
  2. You record yourself playing the game and commenting without face cam OR commenting with face cam
  3. You upload your video(s) to youtube. need to be public and have your sg username in description so we can watch them
  4. you get invited into a train "to climb up in a certain station/car". station depends on how many worlds in the game you finished/recorded and with or without face cam.

Example 1: You record 2 full worlds without facecam, you get invited to car 5 and have access to cars 5-10.
Example 2: You record 2 full worlds with facecam, you get invited to car 4 and have access to cars 4-10.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Nice video, added to the list for invites. Yellow papers are recipes that unlock new meals in the legend menu.

My friend and I are thinking of doing this! We're both thinking about doing a "blind race" kind of deal for the videos. We'd both own a copy of the game, and will be recording our own gameplay (and maybe facecam), but we'd be sharing the commentary part of the videos. Would this be allowed? Just wanted to double check before we go ahead :)

Sounds interesting, I'd like to see that. Would you be using some voice chat to play and comment simultaneously?

Yup, that's the plan! Either discord or skype, going to figure out all the details first with him.

Nice, looking forward to the videos.

(I enjoy watching people play the game and discover how to do things and learning the levels and mobs behavior and all of that... that's why I do these events haha)

I think you might want to check out GnC official trading forums, I've seen people offering coupons and even gift copies for trade: http://steamcommunity.com/app/551580/tradingforum/

Thanks for the help, unfortunately all the coupons are gone, maybe I'll buy it on Steam when there's a sale, will still have time to participate =d

Sure, add it to wishlist and steam will send you an email when it's discounted. :) I don't recommend buying the game just for the event though, but if it's something you'd like anyway, go for it.

Also, I think you can subscribe to the forums and be notified if someone offers to trade a coupon.

Here's my entry! I was pretty bad at this, but I enjoyed it anyways. Definitely want to do another play-through at it and try to find all the coins + recipes at some point. Thank you for this event!

Well that was very fun to watch. So much that I took a break from working on the next game in order to see everything to the end.

For people who didn't play the game yet (and your potential 2nd play-through): There is the option to configure keyboard keys in the settings, I recommend doing that before selecting new game. Also, for tight spaces, just lightly tap jump to make a smaller jump instead of big one.
