If you missed out on yesterday Alien Shooter 2: Conscription, Graylox posted details of how you can get one of several thousand keys for Alien Shooter 2: Reloaded from the bundle site Indie Gala for free (after doing similar tasks to get other Steam games via the giveawayoftheday) HERE. You will need to confirm your age, and you may not get a key straight away. You can retry every five minutes until you suceed (apparently). You can also get another of Sigma Teams games totally for free, called Theseus - Return of the Hero. It's basically the same type of game as Alien Shooter 2 except it was released several years before Alien Shooter and was converted to freeware shortly after Alien Shooter was released. It's basically the same game play mechanics, just a little dated compared to Alien Shooter 2, but still as good. It's drm free and not a Steam key.


To those securing a key, please only post comments about the game being given away today; other comments either not appropriate, or not about the game will be deleted at the moderator or administrators discretion; however a little light banter among community members and with the moderator to keep this a friendly place to visit will be allowed, and will be judged by the moderator as to whether it is suitable or not to be left.
I am posting this in light of the massive increase in negative comments not related to the game being given away, inappropriate comments and spam (Almost 700 spam comments were posted yesterday) that have occurred over the past several months since the site was updated and in particular since the site started to give away games from the Steam world and since they started using Facebook. I truly believe that if we get lots of decent feedback about the games we get here, more developers will be happy to give away their games. Seeing lots of complaints (and spam) instead of feedback about the game will not persuade developers to give their games away for free. So please bear this in mind when posting your comments. Any comment not about the game i.e. complaints, or is deemed unfriendly will be deleted with no response. I'm not going to waste my time answering inane comments from community members who should have read the moderation policy. Negative feedback about the games given away are always welcomed as that can also be very constructive for developers, however, complaining about the way the site is operating or problems about downloading or installing the games should be directed to the giveawayoftheday contact form which I've linked to HERE, alternatively, if the problem is game related and it is late in the day (I can't moderate 24 hours a day), please also post your issue in the forums where you may get a response from the community. Often, such problems are related to your computers set up. i.e. your security may block the installation (for example quite a few game giveaways I've installed have been blocked by my copy of Zemana Anti-malware suite) Also please read the moderation policy which can be found HERE and if you do have a problem please check the FAQ's thread HERE. Thank you.

If you don't like this genre at all, please explain why. What, improvements, if any, would change your opinion? There are thousands of subscribers to the game giveaway of the day every weekend which makes this an ideal forum for giving developers ideas as to what their consumers (i.e you) would like to see in a game. For example, you could suggest extra content such as better or more original mini games, or a level editor that you would like to see that would make it more appealing to you. Maybe you think the graphics are a little dated and are in need of re skinning, or maybe you've just had enough of the genre and want to see something different or something with more originality?

You can see Steam community reviews of Crusaders of the Lost Idols - and the Epic Starter Pack HERE and HERE, and if you want to see some game-play you can see some videos of game play HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.








Conclusion:

Feels like a typical clicker game, with lots of upgrades, gold, chests and adverts to buy various items from the shop with real cash. As with all clicker games I've played over the last year, they can be very addictive, and you can stlill earn what some choose to buy. Personally, the only advantage I see in paying for things ion all of the clicker games i've played is to progress faster. You can still do the same without spending any cash, it just means more farming/grinding.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the developer Codename Entertainment for giving away Steam keys for giving the community Steam keys for the Epic Starter pack for the clicker game Crusaders of the Lost Idols and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

Whiterabbit-uk, No Free games today, huh Stephen?! Got any idea what the maximum character length is for a Steam password?

.........................................Moderator Comment.................................


Hello Jon, the usual length is three sets of five alphanumeric charaters ie: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx, but there are also other code lengths and combinations accepted. I've used five sets of five alphanumeric codes (usually from hard copy games that are accepted on Steam( You can find a list of hard copy games whose's codes will be accepted online HERE. The following site has listed loads of CD/DVD based games whose codes work on Steam:



Also four sets of four alphanumeric characters can be accepted. I don't recall ever getting codes of other lenghts, and they have always been split into sets of four of five. There could be exceptions though. Hope that helps. Please excuse the late reply, decided to take a long break from moderating after yesterdays fiasco.

Whiterabbit-uk,

I decided to take a break from moderating today (Sunday) after spending well over almost fourteen hours virtually without a break sorting out the spam and negative unrelated comments (plus the time spent on the review). I come back to find the review I posted this moring that I spent hours putting together has been given a -4 negative usefulness. It basically just goes to show that I'm just wasting my time here.
.
I can't belive how ungrateful some of the community are after all the games the giveaway team have given over the years. It saddens me to see such negativity, especially when the giveaway team are still securing free stuff. No wonder the world is in such a state with the mentality of some people I've seen comment here (I refuse to call them community members). I will see if I have time to moderate later or sometime at least before the giveaway is over. My son has exams in the morning, I'd rather devote my valuable time to him at the moment as I'm disgusted with what has been going on here recently. Some people should be ashamed of themselves.

Whiterabbit-uk,

I don't know what exactly went on with the comments earlier on but I wished to let you know that a lot of us keep appreciating your dedication to the page throughout the years. :)

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


Thank you. There have been some really diusgusting comments posted as well as a lot of comments insulting me. I am just deleting those comments now rather than giving the satisfaction of an answer. Things have been very busy here with my children going through important exams plus other stuff that I need to sort, so having to cope with hundreds of idiotic posts every weekend, probably posted by a few disgruntled people (I will no longer call them community members) has been very frustrating as I would rather spend my time with my family and hobbies. . I had to say something as it was starting to annoy me a little, even though I know I should just ignore them. I also know that there are a lot of good people out there, and I always appreciate comments like yours. In fact, it's what has kept me here all these years. Regards W.R.

Hey Wrascally Wabbit,

Take a step back and then take a deep breath and let it out slowly. I have had to do the same thing a few times. Like right now...Things have been in an uproar since August of last year and it is still going on. Life is a mess right now.......Just taking one day at a time.

Just remember, you have friends and people who love ya.If you have family things to do...Then, DO THEM! Most of us here, are not children..we will manage. Just ignore the ones who act like children/trolls. As far as the post votes, most the time my comments get voted down. It's a sloppy system, so don't pay it much mind. I consider the source.

Thanks for the info about Indigala, Lady Grey,. I don't know how I missed that.

I didn't realize I already had Alien Shooter 2: Conscription ...so when I got a chance to get a key, I took it. Then I gave it to someone from the GGOTD community who missed a chance because I realized that I had it already.

So big huggles to you and your family and don't let people get you down. There are a lot of people here who love, respect and admire you. You are the best!

...........................................Moderator comment...................................

Hi Delenn

Thanks. and yes, that's all I needed. i spent virtually the whole of Sunday avoiding the site and feel much better for it. Saturday was pretty bad, especially after spending over 12 hours moderating and writing reviews. Then when I did come on early this morning found my review had garnered negative votes. At the time it really did get to me, that and the stupid comments mainly those with insults, but then, after initially posting a response, I thought about it and said to myself, these people aren't even worth responding too as that's what they hope for (it does take time for such things to sink in, lol), so I deleted the reply I'd made and will no longer respond to any comment unless it's to thank someone for posting a comment about the game, or some friendly banter between the community. I've always valued many people here and comments like yours and others has kept me coming back time and time again. Life is too short to get stirred up by trolls, because that is all they are.

I've been in touch with the giveaway team and passed on my thoughts. They will be discussing the situation with the spam issue sometime this week. Apart from that I've had a brilliant several weeks leading up to Christmas and post New Year. everything is bright and rosy, though I still haven't sorted the legal stuff with the builder that I'm suing. A thorn in the side as the legal costs have already passed £10 000, but we are determined to get justice on that front. I do hope 2017 is better than 2016 for you. Sorry to hear you are in the wars. Finally, I may have some good news coming up soon. :)

Still havent receive the email yet, the gotd ending in 1 hour plus...sigh...

...........................................Moderator comment...................................

Hi Tom

There is an issue with emails, if you've previously used a different one. Codes are sent to the first email used to sign into the comments section. If you have used a different email previously, check that one to see if the code has been sent there. If you've previously used a throw away email, then there may be a problem. If you still can't find the code contact the giveaway team via the contact form that I've linked to in the first few paragraphs of my review, near to where I've posted a link to the moderation policy. Hopefully the giveaway team can help.
Just noticed your email. Is the No reply email a throwaway one? If that is the case, you may have a problem. Be sure to mention when contacting the giveaway team that you used a throwaway email.
I have just managed to get a spare key by getting my daughter to apply for one and it was successful. Trouble is I don't know whether your email that I see is a genuine one, so am loath to send it on to you. Posting it here it will just be grabbed by the first person who sees it. I will be offering this to C. Wild as well, so the first one to post their actual email (which I will then delete) will get the code.
I tried to email you using the email you've provided and it was returned, so it was a throwaway. That will probably be where your Steam code went as well.

Reply   |   Comment by Tom  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

I signup both using yahoo mails, not the throwaway email I use to chat here, unfortunately, the both giveawayoftheday emails arrived after the event are over hours later I notice since its in spam folder(unusual), I know I check back both yahoo mails after the event over 2-3 hours later yesterday, but both mails never arrived, I only notice both gotd mails arrived today.

So I'm not sure why both mails arrived one day later.

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


C Wilds email was genuine, so I sent the spare code to him once he'd responded; sorry about that Tom. Send me a friends request on Steam, or better still let me know your Steam name and I'll see if I've got any spare Steam keys that match up with any games you have in your wish list. Once I've seen your Steam name I'll delete it from the comments so as not to cause you any undue requests. I have over 10 000 spare Steam keys, collected over the last 5 years through buying most indie bundles released since the first Humble bundle. If I find a match, I'll send you one or two games for free. I probable have some shooter codes spare anyway. My Steam name is Whiterabbit-uk, but I don't tend to check my requests often these days because I get a lot of beggars asking for various items from my inventory. Regards Stephen :)

Still no email even though the screen claims it has been sent.

...........................................Moderator comment...................................

Hi C Wild

Take a screen capture of the screen that shows it has been sent then send that together with an explanation to the giveaway team via the contact link I've provided in my review at the top of these comments. You'll also find a link to the contact form at the bottom of the game giveaway home page. hopefully the team will have spare codes.

Reply   |   Comment by C. Wild  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

C. Wild, same, both gotd and game gotd, I still havent receive both emails yet, I try sign using two different emails but still get nothing, its been hours already.

Well, too late now only saw your post today... and btw emails for download and registrationslinks only arrived today(which means one day later after the event is over)...so basically both links no longer exist/work in emails.

I'm not getting any steam key for this product with multiple tries.

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


See my reply to your last comment. If you've used a throwaway email like the one I see in the admin panel, that may be the problem as the first email used to sign into the site is the one the code is sent to. Mention that you use a throwaway email when you contact the team.i.e. spam ---- ---- at ----- dot com.

Still nothing from the product, but whiterabbit-uk was super helpful in email and I have some hopes now. :)

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


Check your email Spam Dodger, I've sent you the code my daughter applied for. Hopefully it won't be duplicated. Good Luck :)

Clicker-games are increasing in popularity, but still not my cup of tea. Besides the gameplay, their look is more for tablets. I really like the theme, tho.

Please can you delete the nonsense comments that have appeared.

Regarding the game, I'm not a fan of Time Managment or similar types of games, but this one is rather addictive! Perhaps I'm starting to appreciate different types of games in my old age.
