#7

Free Copies of Enclave, East India Company Gold, More

OK, I’ve just done this myself, so if it does turn out to be in any way dodgy at least you can rest assured that I’ll be in the same trouble as anyone else who takes a punt on it. So far as I can tell though, it’s simply a promotional stunt for a German download portal called DLH.NET. To anyone who signs up at the moment, they’re gifting free Steam codes for olden hacker-slasher Enclave, ‘strategic economy simulation’ Knights & Merchants HD and naval strategy game East India Company Gold. None of them are humdingers, perhaps, but hey, they’re going for no-pennies if you want ‘em.

Oh man, Defender’s Quest is a SUPER fun Tower Defense game. 9/10
