Giveaway: Take One of Our 1,000 Beta Keys for Aftercharge

This is a giveaway, folks — no fancy work required! Take a beta key for multiplayer game Aftercharge.

Hey, you! Yeah, you. I’ve got a bunch of keys for a closed beta with your name all over them! Well, your name is just on one of them. There are lots of names this time of year, as I’m sure you can imagine. But don’t worry, you’re on the Nice list. But only if you take one of these beta keys for Aftercharge.

Chainawesome Games is gearing up for the January 10, 2019 launch of their competitive multiplayer game, Aftercharge. I’ll let them tell you all about it!

Aftercharge is a 3-vs-3 competitive game pitting invisible robots against an invincible security squad in high-octane tactical skirmishes. Six glowing structures called extractor are at the center of the gameplay and serve as the objective for both teams. The robots have to coordinate their attacks, create distractions and sneak around to destroy them. The enforcers on the other hand have to cover as much ground as possible and use their abilities wisely to spot the attackers and stop them before they can destroy all of the extractors.


Unique blend of fresh mechanics
An invisible team fighting an invincible team, reviving allies instantly with no limit and zero cooldown on abilities are only a few mechanics that make Aftercharge a shooter you’ve never played before.

Bite-size competitive matches
The teams are small, the maps are small, the rounds are short, the action is always within sight and it never stops.

Asymmetrical characters
Choose from a different character pool on each side with widely different abilities and roles to vary your team’s strategy.

Online multiplayer and matchmaking
Team up with players anywhere around the world and face off against opponents of similar skill level.

This ain’t no regular beta, folks — this is a 72-hour event, running today, December 14 at 12 pm EST through December 16. Good thing you’ve got the beta’s official Discord server right here in this handy link — use it to coordinate with other players and keep up with the action as you go!

So go ahead, fellow robots, and get into the action!

We have 1,000 total keys to give out. Just redeem one using the widget below, and you’re all set! If you have any issues redeeming, feel free to email me at [email protected] and I’ll help ya out.

Aftercharge is slated for a January 10, 2019 release. Check the beta out while you can, now through December 16!

Giveaway: Take One Of Our 5,000 Keys For The Uncertain: Episode 1

This ain’t no contest, buddy – we’re literally giving these Steam keys away for The Uncertain: Episode 1 – The Last Quiet Day.

Do you get frustrated when you don’t win contests? Upset when someone else steals the prize you so desperately wanted? Do you shout to the heavens in anger when someone else is announced as the recipient of a prize? ComonGames understands, so they’re here to bring balance back to the world.

They’ve given us 5,000 copies of the acclaimed first episode of their series The Uncertain. To win, all you have to do is click below!

I’ll let developer ComonGames take it from here:

Imagine making moral choices in a world devoid of morality. Logic rules this world, and every decision is just a set of zeroes and ones. Most concepts take a whole new meaning, and some get completely abolished. Luckily reasonable beings, even if not human, always have a choice.

The Uncertain: Episode 1 – The Last Quiet Day is an episodic story-driven adventure game set in a post-apocalyptic world. In the first episode you see it from the perspective of an engineering robot RT-217NP, who seems to be very curious about the human race, long extinct in wasting wars. Experience the mysterious vibe of each of carefully explored locations. Test your skills, solving diverse puzzles. Make fateful decisions and discuss intriguing matters to find out the whole truth being kept from you.

Key features:

  • Classic 3D Adventure with unique story
  • Beautiful graphics and immersive atmosphere
  • Original indie soundtrack
  • Made using NVIDIA GameWorks HBAO+, DoF, and FXAA technologies

It certainly seems humanity has a knack for always going extinct.

To get your hands on a key, all you have to do is use the widget below. Too easy. (Also maybe tell your friends because hoo boy we’ve got a lot of these codes to give out.)

Like what you played? ComonGames is developing Episode 2 – Light at the End, and they have taken to Kickstarter to get the project up and running. Show your support for the series by backing it to help see the episodic game to completion!

The Uncertain: Episode 1 – The Last Quiet Day is available now on Steam.

Contest: Win a Steam Copy of Colina: Legacy

We’re addicted to contests. Enter our latest one for Colina: Legacy to assist us in getting the help we need to get rid of these games.

I don’t know why y’all like these spooky-ass games so much. One minute you’re walking down a hallway having an apparently good time taking in the crappy old furniture and lack of natural lighting, and then bam! The ghost of your dead grandma’s parakeet knocks the chandelier down and scares the “clean” out of your pants.

But hey, who am I to judge? Come get some of the scares in Colina: Legacy for Steam!

Colina: Legacy

In this survival horror title, you play as Alex, who has just woken up in his grandmother’s home. Alone and confused, he must find an escape…before something finds him. You’ll use your wits, your flashlight, and not much else to fend off the terrors of the night. Will you finally discover your family secrets?

Game features include:

  • Escape Room of Terror — The design of Colina: Legacy was approached with escape rooms in mind. Challenging puzzles await Alex as he explores his grandmother’s house, but the puzzles aren’t the only thing that awaits him on his journey.
  • Return to Old-School Survival Horror — From the third person camera to the flashlight as your one true weapon, Colina: Legacy pays homage to the great survival horror games of the past while making a place for itself in the genre.
  • Stunning Visuals and Sound — While Colina: Legacy may have been developed by a very small team, the visuals and audio stand out in league with larger games. Colina: Legacy is a game to be experienced.

It’s a game to be experienced! Just not if you’re me. Because I’m too scared.

How to win

For your chance to soil a perfectly good pair of trousers, use the widget below to give us your name and email, and show a little bit of love for the hard-working folks here at Gamnesia. So please don’t spook them – they’re easily frightened.
