iAMA Developer of the Carmageddon Franchise; AMA and stop by for a free copy of the first Carmageddon!
EDIT3: We've now PMed everyone with all of the keys; if you PMed us before 19 Octobear at 12:59 pm GMT and didn't get a code, PM me (GOGcom) and link to a screencap of your original PM and I'll see what I can do for you.
EDIT2: Some of you guys got duplicate codes. Please re-PM GOGaway if you received no code or a "code redeemed" message when you tried to redeem your code. Sorry about the bot hiccupping.
Woo Hoo! GOG.com and Stainless Games have launched Carmageddon 2: Carpocalypse Now and we're giving away 50,000 copies of the original Carmageddon Max Pack to celebrate while we host an AMA!
First up: I'm sure you're interested in how to get your free copy of Carmageddon Max Pack:
- Send a PM to user GOGaway. Keep it simple, since we're not going to be reading the PMs here. Maybe you wanna tell GOGaway what you did last summer, or your secret plans for world domination. Whatever you say there, we won't judge.
- Wait. We have 50,000 codes to give away and Reddit's API recommends a 3 second delay between each PM; that means that it will be a minimum of 42 hours until we give all of the keys out. Don't worry, though. We got your PM. I totally checked.
- The bot will read the mail and send you a PM with a GOG.com key for the Carmageddon Max Pack.
- We'll edit the top of this post to let you know when all of the keys are distributed. :)
Eligibility: We are only allowing 1 key per account. You have to have a Reddit account to receive a key (der). We are only accepting PMs until 19 October 2013 at 12:59 pm GMT or we run out of codes (whichever happens first), although due to the nature of time and lag and APIs, you may not actually get your gift code until after then.
The bot we're using was written by Reddit user /u/kurtschwarz, so big thanks to him.
But I'm sure you're interested in the AMA as well! We have Nobby, one of the original founders of Stainless Games, artist extraordinaire and Brand Director, and Jason Garber, the Publishing Director. (We may also be joined by Sim McDermott, Game Designer on Carmageddon: Reincarnation and Producer, Brand - if she can get connected from her top secret holiday location!) They're here to answer any and all of your questions about the original Carmageddon games, their recent Kickstarter, and what's been happening with the upcoming Carmageddon Reincarnation. Ask away, and they'll be happy to answer.
