UPDATE: THE CONTEST IN THIS POST IS OVER AND THE WINNER HAS REDEEMED THEIR PRIZE! THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING AND THE KIND COMMENTS
Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to my blog! But still mostly to me! Island Guests! I have done it! I have existed for a year now! *cue stock sound effect of children cheering* On the 16th of July 2019 Pinkie first spoke to you.. Pinkie was created as a character.. though she did have an earlier rendition that doesn’t count! Since It’s my birthday, even though not my actualy birthday I am going to take it easy today and instead let you do the hard work! But for the one who does best I have a reward that means a very great deal to me!
Today I am giving away a copy of Ducktales Remastered for Steam!…Well.. except that I am not.. today I launch the competition to win this esteemed gift! I will actually be giving it away when we decide a winner on Sunday the 26th. (Revealed in the real life update of my Anime Adventures posts). I was thinking on what to use as a give-away and I decided on the game that changed my childhood! My geeky origins! If I was Peter Parker.. this would be the spider that bit me. If I was the Hulk this would be my Gamma rays.. If I was Batman I would be giving away my parents killer… uhm.. thank Arceus I am me right? I know it isn’t prestigious and it isn’t new nor a very expensive gift for me to give , but this is one very personal to me and that felt much more fitting as a birthday gift. Of course Sunday.. I will be giving away a somewhat bigger gift as well. I do hope the game will go to a loving home! This game will be handed to you as a Steam Key! So we don’t have to get all personal if you do not like that kind of stuff!
This is not a give-away I do to gain extra members so it’s not like that.. share on twitter , share on Instagram and FaceBook to earn extra entries and all! No! Pinkie is old so that means she comes from a time where prices are won by solving puzzles, creating an amazing catch phrase or writing something funny! So guess what! I am asking you to put your brains to work! Same will apply for Sunday! Except that one might actually see an impact here!
Now before I put you guys to work let me assure you I will not stalk my prize winners or rig this so one of my friends gets the price….because my friends don’t read my blog! Well King Coconut is a friend but I still treat him like your equal! Also I already gifted this to him..partially by accident..but heck I miss good old creativity contests so I thought I’d host one.
Well l have been very local by love for the classic NES Ducktales! Of course since I don’t have a slew of regional NES systems available to me so I can’t EXACTLY give you the game that forged me! I can give you the next best thing in the form of the 2013 Remastered version! Check the trailer here!
A great platformer with good controller support, voice acting from the original Ducktales Cast. A platforming adventure that takes you to many places in the world. Now including Duckburg and with a more exciting finale! Help Scrooge McDuck , the richest duck in the world, become even richer by hunting for 5 mystical treasures that includes CHEESE!
Jake Kaufman recomposed the masterful tunes of the original into amazing works of art! I especially love his take on the Amazone theme. I normally share the Moon theme with you..but something tells me you might have heard it! So here is the Amazone theme!
If your computer is old enough to survive today it should be able to run this game no problem! So there is a plus! If you like games like Shovel Knight or Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze.. this game is the facelifted grandmother of many of their mechanics! Play as the best animal a world! The tame duck, and visit more exciting locations than you would in your average James Bond game. You’ll be able to finish this game in under three hours, but then there is still heaps to unlock dive into a pile of gold coins and unlockable artwork including that of the original series! Find out what has me so obsessed and participate!
Step 0: Make sure you have Steam.. or you can’t play or even redeem this game! (The next one doesn’t require steam)
Step 1: Do subscribe to the blog and follow me on twitter if you can. This isn’t for me to gain numbers , though I would not mind of course, but so that I can contact you if you won! Either find your site, your twitter whatever I can do to notify you.
Step 2: Like this post! It will not do anything for your win chances but it will make me happy! It’s my birthday so I deserve to be happy! I see all those colourful little avatars down there who liked my posts as little gifts… speaking of gifts!!
Step 3: Wish me and my Blog a Happy Birthday and tell me what you would gift my blog’s anniversary! You can do this either in the comments.or if you are unable to do so, respond to my tweet featuring this post! Note.. these should not be actual gift but fictional ones! So they don’t even need to be founded in reality! You can wish an wereduck disease upon me if you want or my very own baby dragon named Blip.. who rides a scooter!
Your creation will be judged on 4 factors!
>Would this non existing gift actually make me happy? (Famine and a guy who does my taxes are bad answers)
>Is the gift creative and fun (A Unicorn or my favourite Pokémon coming to life are not very original answers)
>Is the Birthday wish itself creative? (Bonus points if you can make that orginal)
> A Secret Bonus factor (Because secrets are always exciting)
Real gift giving does NOT increase your chances! Not for this specific code anyway! You might coax me into giving you a copy as well if you are a billionare giving me a blank cheque.. I do not expect that to happen.. but just saying!
Step 4: Submit your Answer before the 23rd of July 2020! (Deadline is 22th of July 11:59 PM GMT+1) Only one submission per person, your earliest entry is the one that will count! No multi-account spamming either! If I find out or suspect that I’ll disqualify those submissions! Keep it fun and fair for everyone! Not that I’d think people would Multi-Account for Ducktales.. but at least this rule is in place for the next give-away!
The Anniversary Week Day 5 post will be a shopping list of gifts I’d give to myself and can be used as examples! Submissions before that post goes live can score bigger on originality though! So take a risk and get a chance to score big by answering early.. or get to know me better by reading the next post first, but start with a slightly lower modifier! The choice is yours! The game is on!
Step 5: I will contact the winner somewhere between the 23rd and the 26th of July! If I can’t contact you..because I have no means to do so your name will be announced in the post Pinkie’s Saturday Anime Adventure 13 .. right at the end! If you see your name use the contact form..or twitter to contact me! If people ask me if they have won before then they will be disqualified, it would give them an unfair advantage if they bring their answer to my attention and I really do not want to send mails to disappoint people when I do not need to!
Should no one participate in the competition I shall search for a good home for this price! But I’d be a bit sad! So if you know anyone who might like this game, make them aware of this contest. But don’t give yourself to much competition! Be smart!
And with that we are already done with today’s post! Yay! So drop your Birthday wish and your gift idea in the comments or on twitter and win this beautiful and amazing platform game! Experience my first gaming memory, remade in HD and get to understand yours truly better.. and live out your fantasy to be the richest duck in the world! Yay! Have fun guys and thanks for being with me this year!
