It looks like the countdown clock hqas an issue. I've never seen a game available here for more than several days when they are limited giveaways; more usually they are 24 hr giveaways. I don't know when the game is supposed to end. I presume the game will continue to be available until the giveaway team are aware of the issue and fix it. In the mean time the game is still freely downloadable.
Maze of Pain
In Brief
Maze of Pain also known as Monster Defense is a First Person escape the dungeon shooter with various traps and monsters to contend with.
Maze of Pain is a first person dungeon maze crawler with horror elements. The aim of the game is to escape the maze like dungeon, that is infested with monsters and Edgar Allen Poe like traps (e.g. the pendulum). You need to collect all the bottles on each level that you find standing around the maze to complete the level. The graphics are quite decent, and the levels I have so far played vary in design. I did find the lack of variety with respect to the monsters and the same drab walls of the maze a little off putting, and the game is quite short. That said, it is one of those less than a dollar games ($0.99/£0/79) that are common on Steam these days. The giveaway version is a free standing version of the game and not a Steam key. If you bought a copy via Steam you'd also have access to 24 Steam achievements (SEE HERE).
All the traps are relatively easy to pass; you just need to get your timing right. The monsters you encounter are killed fairly easily. Just pump three or four bullets into them and they drop. If you are injured by a monster or one of the traps you can find health packs laying around the maze that regenerate your health, which is indicated by a heart symbol in the bottom left of the game.
You can see a couple of videos of game play HERE and HERE, plus several Steam community reviews (mixed) HERE.

Would love to try this, but always request the link via email when it's not from MyPlayCity (where I'll just get it directly if I can't just download from here), and after two requests today, have yet to receive a download link. Guess it's not imperative that I try it. Of course, it's only 99 cents on Steam, but it's the principle of the thing.

Karen, Be sure to check your e-mail's "Junk" or "Spam" folder... I've found the GGoTD e-mails with links to the games usually end up there and it's easy to miss them.

When you install this, it asks if you want a desktop shortcut. If you say no, it does not add a shortcut to the game, BUT it adds FOUR desktop shortcuts to the developer's website.
Also, every time you close the program, it launches the developer's website in your web browser.

This is just ridiculous.

David,
This has always been the case with all the free game sites you'll find on the net. Most games given away via any free games site includes low level adware and extra desktop shortcuts. . The adverts are added so that we can get the games for free. Part of the money earned from in game adverts or when your browser is redirected to the providers site is paid to the actual developers of these games. They can earn more money by allowing their games to be given away than by selling them via commercial sites like Big Fish games.

Its a small inconvenience that most people accept for getting the games for free.

David,
As Stephen said, this is very common practice for 'free' games. My personal opinion is that GGOTD games do typically have far less adware than games from many other sites which offer free games.
As you noted, the game's installer asks about a desktop shortcut only for the game being installed; the other shortcuts are installed (without the option) by the "wrapper" software which runs the game's installer, however the "bonus" shortcuts are easily deleted. As for the browser opening when the game closes, again that's part of the price, but who knows … perhaps a PC-savvy friend could even help you with that too? ;)
