Hey.
The game Cargo Commander came out a few days ago on Steam.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/220460/

I think its a fun little game and I wanted to make a little competition out of it.
And why not have it on the forum of my favorite podcast that has been a part of my life for many many years now Smiley
I hope thats ok for John and Michelle.

First remember this is not a competition from a company.
I do this for fun out of my own money.
All the prizes are just gifts from me.
So please understand that I will do my best to give out all the gifts to the right people but I do not owe anyone anything.
It's all just gifts that I want to give to people but I do not have to do it.
So just have some fun and be glad if you get a gift from me this holiday.

Ok. So there will be two rounds.
The first easy round is for 5 copys of Cargo Commander.
The second round will be the big competition.
I might give away a lot of Steam games from the Steam holiday sale if I am in a good mood this holiday Smiley

Cargo Commander Gifts:

I will do my best to gift 5 copys of Cargo Commander (27.95 Euro total) to 5 random people that send me a private massage on the VGO forum the next two days.
In the massage you have to answer a few easy questions:
1. What does John collect in his basemant?
2. Witch gameing console maker does John love?
3. What is the name of Michelles first book?
4. Name two characters that visit the VGO Studio ones a year? One on Halloween and one around Christmas.
5. Who is Kyle? and who is "temporarily" on the show?

Also send me a Friend Request on Steam if you are not already on my friends list.
Here is my profile page:
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197966671465/

If you are not one of the people that get the game from me then please consider buying it.
Its not a lot of money and its 20% off untill 8. Nov.

Steam Holiday sale gifts:

Ok now on to the big competition.
I am planing on doing this in a few different games the first game is Cargo Commander.
I have made two sectors in Cargo Commander.
One is named VGO the other one is named TROND.
On the 20. Dec around 23:59 GMT (UK time) I will look at the top 3 players on the two sectors.
Here is what the top players might get gifted to them in Steam games if they have been nice this year:

Sector: VGO

1. player - 20 Euro
2. player - 10 Euro
3. player - 5 Euro

Sector: TROND

1. player - 15  Euro
2. player - 7 Euro
3. player - 3 Euro

If the same player is first in both sectors then thats 35 Euro for that person in Steam games.
If you are realy good you might be first in one of the other game competitions to.
I will also be playing, if I am in the top 3 then I will give that gift to myself.
And maybe someone else wants to gift me something if I make the top 3? Smiley

Also if you want gifts you have to be a VGO listener (or host. No gifts for Temporary Co-Hosts Tongue ), be on my friends list on Steam and have a username on the VGO forum.
Ok fine, you can get gifts to Matt. I'm shure you are Co-Host by then.
Lets hope Smiley

Again here is my profile page:
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197966671465/

So anyway if you want to be on my gift list this year then here is your chance.
If people like this than I will do this in a few more games.
I hope we all will have a lot of fun.

I'm going to sleep now.
I will be back sometime tomorrow.

So far the chance of you getting a game is 250%  Grin
Come on people, I would like to get some more private massages.

And just so you all know, to get to the right sector in the game you have to play in the starting sector untill you get a sector pass.
When you use the sector pass select "Enter Sector Name" and type inn VGO or TROND.

One last thing.
The top 3 different players on eatch sector get gifts.
So if your name is the entire top 10 list the the second player to get a gift would be the player on the 11. spot.

I did not think it would be this hard to give away some Steam games.
I'm just going to give away 3 copys now to the 3 people that have sendt me a massage.
Two of you said the name of Michelles first book was Dear Asshole and one said Damn You Auto Correct.
I'll give you alle a copy anyway Smiley

Ok 3 copys of Cargo Commander have been sendt out.
Hope you all like it.
I already have a top score you all can try to beat.
Also as you play different sectors you level up and get different things thet will help you out in the game.
So you might have to level up a few times before you are able to get some high scores.

True true, I messed it up. I associate Michelle with DYAC because of pophangover.com. But Jillian is only credited on the book. My bad. She helped promote the hell out of it though. Points there.

No I meant that you was right.
On the hosts page it says "Recently her second book, Dear Asshole" so that must be the second one right? Smiley

I KNEW IT! I'm always right. But if you look at the book cover, Jillian's name is the only one on it.

 Oh and thank you for the gift. Much appreciated. As soon as I can free up some time here with school work, I'm gonna play the hell out of it. It looks fun.

Game is pretty neat so far from what I've played of it.  I like the concept of being this salvaging type person in space.  The mechanics for scoring are interesting too, especially with the systems to pick upgrades as you go.  Has a weird sense of being chaotic and yet orderly with how it works in the gameplay.

I think my only issue is the little flying enemies out in space, if only because they can get inside your homebase.  Had one scenario where a ton swarmed me and killed me in the homebase area, was doing good up until then.  It feels like your bastion of safety at all other times, so it just feels odd that those little guys turn into such threat even there.

I'm still trying to get used to how the game works.  I've been past the tutorial part, and then tried the vgo sector twice.
