MvG Comment Giveaway – Recettear Edition

December 22, 2010

UPDATE: This contest is now over! Thanks to everyone who participated — much love to ya as always! -Duff

It’s Pink Week at the MvG cast, and with Christmas around the corner this weekend, it is a good time to be giving away some goodies! This is the 3rd night in a game giveaway here exclusively on the site. Good luck!

On my first night of giveaways, I gave away a copy of Super Meat Boy to MvG viewer CaptainUrahara. Last night, I gave away two copies of the original Puzzle Quest to viewers Mikeyman2000 & Piepiez. Now tonight, I have decided to give away another game as part as MvG’s Pink Week! In night 3 of my giveaway run, I have decided to give away a Steam copy of Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale.

It's the game for the shopkeeper in all of us. I have to admit that this is WAY better than being a real life shopkeeper.

Here is a quick overview of the game before you decide on trying to win it. In Recettear, you are set into the role of shopkeeper, selling different items found throughout the game. However, you are not just slaving away in the shop (which I hear can be quite fun), as there is also a dungeon crawler aspect in this title as well. The main goal of the game is to get yourself out of debt by collecting money towards paying off a debt payment. You complete that overall mission, and you win! Think of it as a sort of Sims title…for a shop. Pretty cool, eh?

Finally, it is an epic win for Capitalism. Capitalism, Ho!

Okay, now for the fun part. I will be giving away a copy of this game tonight as part of Pink Week! For those that have taken part in the first two comment affairs, feel free to try again this go around! Here are rules once again that need to be followed in order to win:

Make a profile here at (if you haven’t already). After all, you are going to want to anyway if you want to chat here and be part of the community!

Leave a comment here on this thread. In your comment, you must do one of two things: 1) Leave your Steam name and then add me on Steam (DuffmanA is my account name). OR 2) Leave the e-mail address you would like me to send the game to (AKA the e-mail you use for your Steam account). That way I can send you the game regardless of if you are my friend on Steam or not.

NOTE: If you have already entered in either of the first two contests and have already added me on Steam, you do not need to put your steam account in again if you don’t want to.

-Post the comment by the deadline, which in this case will be Thursday, December 23rd at 1:00 AM Eastern Standard Time. Anything later than that, and you won’t be in the drawing.

Okay then, best of luck everyone! Remember, you can’t win it if you aren’t in it!
