Which is why I asked. Maybe you had some kind of exclusive information :stuck_out_tongue:

Giveaway for whom?
Items in the game for everyone or just something for the viewers in twitch?

In the latter case, it means - not for me, naturally.

Giveaways are for viewers. If it plans well, there may be playerbase goodies, but I can’t make any promises, sadly.

We :heart: Hedge! Can’t wait for you to speak about the Verm project and your role in it! :smiley:

For paid subscribers of the twitch channel only, right? Understand.

No, any viewer who participates in the giveaway (basically just watch and post a hashtag during giveaway time so the drawing algorithm knows you want in).

Our channel doesn’t have a subscription. I think it would be better not to make assumptions on why we hold this event. None of us are doing it for the money or fame.

Awesome, looking forward to this.

Will hedge be taking questions? More specifically, about Genevieve Dieudonné?

Thank you very much for the Event. I spent my time with great interest. All the same, this is a completely different experience of the game, in contrast to what I have.

Also thanks for the gift. I got one, is that right?

Thank you! High praise! :smiley:

You did win a key! Please check your whispers over on Twitch! :heart:

Once again, with great respect for your work, thank you! Got it, looks good.

My suggestion for @Fatshark_Hedge : please, more support similar Events in future, especially with keys. Especially with keys that cannot be bought in Steam Store. For example, separate hats from the old Giveaways (like a white elven sock “The Outsider”, I missed this, like many others, although I was with you all 5 years). Or “Eternal Serpent” frame for V2…

Maybe I’ll get lucky again.
