Welcome all to the 2nd "2in20" (Two Games in 20 Hours) Event.
Ran the first one last year around this same time.


The event is now OVER! Ended 23:59, 10th August, NZST

Giveaways are now live!

34 people have successfully finished.
Because we had over 30 people complete the event, it means I might actually run another event in a couple of months. (Thank you.)
We have about 10 other people who I have deemed eligible for entrance into the bonus giveaway.


The prize for the event is entrance into two giveaways: Death's Door and Spiritfarer

  • There's also a mystery, unbundled giveaway, to be added for all participants who put a reasonable effort in to enter!
    The bonus giveaway is now revealed to be for The Sojourn
  • Entrance into giveaways is on the agreement you will play the game within 2 months of winning.
  • You may only win one game in this event - if you manage to win more, then I will ask for a re-roll for the one of your choosing.

Rules Of Event:

The event will start and end within a specific time of 10 days as announced by myself (00:00, 1st - 23:59, 10th August NZST)
Play ONE or TWO games that require a minimum combined total time of 20 hours or more to beat, within the event time

Games must meet these requirements (and are subject to further discretion by myself):

  • have achievements
  • are NOT 0CV games, or have never been given away free. (I'll be the judge on eligibility.)
  • you haven't previously started playing (idle time from card farming is generally ok)
  • have a game ending/completion (end-game achievement). MP or Sandbox games will not be allowed.
  • are beaten within the ten days of the event (DON'T start before the event starts!)

Comment with the games you'd like to play:

  • I recommend choosing backup games, just in case you don't like one of your original picks.
  • PLEASE post with links to HLTB pages and your achievements pages for the games you want to play.
  • I will then confirm length, status, achievements, eligibility.
  • if the selected or game(s) barely meet the minimum required game-time, then I may ask you to re-pick.

Fineprint:

  • If you're using HLTB, check the "Main story" time. This is the rough MINIMUM amount of time required to beat the game. I only require you to beat/finish the game, not 100% it.
  • If you choose a game or games that barely meet the minimum game-times, then I may request longer game(s) to be chosen.
  • Most games have a "complete the story/game" achievement. If your game doesn't have an "end-game" achievement, then you must let me know so I can review the choice.
  • it is your responsibility to make sure the games meet the criteria stated - if I find out after the event has started that one of the games is ineligible (freebie, too short, no end-game achievement, started before the event, etc.), then I won't be held responsible for that.
  • Once you;ve beaten the game(s), reply to first post of the thread. I'll add you on Steam, and send giveaway link(s) once live.
  • If you don't post a comment before the event is over, please don't come crying to me to make an exception for you.
  • If you don't link your Steam achievement pages for each game you complete, I will classify your completion as invalid.
  • I will run the giveaway(s) after the event is over, to give me more time to check and send invites, and set giveaway end-date.

If anyone's interested I also played 2in20 as well (but on Gamepass for the month):

  • Call of the Sea. took about 6 hours on my first playthrough, with an extra 90 mins to mop up achievements. It's a great walking sim/puzzle game with lovecraft elements. The puzzles are fairly simple, if you hunt for the clues, and the story is fairly unique and interesting. Definitely worth checking out.
  • Slime Rancher (Adventure mode). Roughly 20hrs, still missing a few things from the Slimepedia, etc, but I might continue for a little longer to see if I can get them before I call it a day. As for the gadgets and other incredulous stuff, seems little point in most of it. The devs may have big ambitions but there's just not enough gameplay. I wouldn't recommend.

I think it's clear you're just trolling at this point. They said they don't want any more interactions with you and you keep replying to them. Assuming you're just here to start an argument it's best you not.

I would participate with this games, or maybe I change one of them, but I leave a message if I do.
I will try both first games, and if I dont get in time, i will combine one of them the one of the second two,

The Surge ITH Archivements Screens 31 hs
Vampyr ITH

The Suicide of Rachel Foster ITH Archivements Screens 4 Hs
Silence ITH

could be Vampyr 16h + Silence 5.5h
or The Surge 21h + The Suicide of Rachel Foster 3h

but all depends of my times at work, and the family, and life itself.

EDIT: done

I'm interested in participating. I'll pick my games on the 1st if that's fine with you though because I haven't chosen which SG win I want to base my other games around.
My new year's resolution is to 100% all my SG wins, I have 4 left.

I would 100% these.
Return to Shironagasu Island 15h 29min for completionist. 9h 45min to beat. Achievement page
Root Letter 13h 56min for completionists. 8h 49 min to beat. Achievement page

No VN's for me. ):

How about:
Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth - HLTB - Achievements
Grim Fandango Remastered - HLTB - Achievements - Screenshots - Review

Doubt if I can participate though because Pillars of the Earth was given away at Epic and Grim Fandango was given away on GOG. I don't use either of those websites and got them through HumbleBundle.

Doesn't affect other client freebies, because the game needs to be played on Steam, so only Steam freebies are ineligible.

I'm going to have to fail the event, it's too late at night and I thought the event ended on the 11th, not in the morning of the 10th. Take care and GL with your winners.

I mean, you can easily raise the limit if that's the problem, since you're the one making the rules. If it's just about the attitude instead, well, for that I'm sorry, I didn't mean to pass for a slacker or whatever.

I don't get if this is kind of a "last straw" situation or if I've been overly annoying without noticing.
Anyway, don't cancel it, please, unless it's really what you want to do. At least, not for me or any other random uncaring person around here. My not required advice.
Anyway, I'll see myself out.

Not sure Disco Elysium has an achievement for exactly finishing (besides one for hardcore mode) so I can provide a screenshot once the case is done ^^

P.S. Just saw some of the last comments about you thinking of quitting, I'm so glad you didn't! There'd always be some trolls trying to abuse/discourage such great ideas. Just let them be the ♥♥♥♥♥ they are, karma will strike back. ;)

Disco Elysium would be fine to play by itself.

EDIT: On second looks, no I can't accept it due to no specific end-game achievement.

Hmm... Let me change the Disco to Nier Replicant? It's 19.5 hrs min with 47 achievements (final one included).
