A game from Steam as a gift? Or something else?

Recommended Posts

Hey, guys, I've started Steam this evening, and I noticed that I have 3 games - not 2 as I should be having. Then I took a look into the library, and after that I saw another game there - Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes...

 

Can someone tell me what is this about? Is this some New Year present from Steam, or a demo, or something like that? Also, if it is a gift, then I guess I have two days left to install it if I want (that's what it says: "Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes - 2 days left"), and then it's all mine? Also, may I be able to trade that game for another one, as this one appears to be similar to Heroes (Mights and Magic, etc...) and I haven't been a fan of that kind of game...

I think the games with "- x days left" are an offer from steam to test them.

Games which, like Micha stated, are free for a certain amount of days and are "exclusive" or "popular" will show up in your game library, available for download. This can be easily hidden by setting your library preference to "Installed", although I tend to leave it on "All Games" in case a game which sounds good pops up :)

Indeed, who knows! In fact, it would be the best if Steam had such a policy for all games. I mean, it would be nice if you could try a game before buying it... It would be possible, and of course, there would have to be some limitations, such as - to try a game you need to have another game purchased and activated at Steam. It would be a trial version that would last 24 or 48 hours for example. There might be other limitations with the number - one could choose to play a trial version of the game once in a month for example.

 

Of course, I guess it wouldn't happen, as then people would be buying less bad games.

 

I mean, that would be one use of Steam which we don't like much. :)

This would be a good idea but Steam would drastically lose money. Think how many games you have bought and then not played them again. I've done that to a lot of games. Also it's not entirely up to Steam but also the game developers :)

    • Stronghold 2 Manager is here! Possible to play MP game with bots

      I have good news! :) One of the original fans of the mod sent the installation file. :) This is where you can download it from, but be aware, it is likely that your antivirus will detect it as a troyan. I believe that this is nothing harmful, and I will try it later. Right now I don't have the other PC of mine here, but I will have it tomorrow, so I will try it then.   Another issue is that they said it works with 1.3.1 version, so I am unsure whether this is going to with 1.4.1 version, but we

      AI in multiplayer - if you're still looking for "Stronghold 2 Manager"... For those of you that want AI back in the multiplayer so you can do co-op and can't find a solution, read on. The AI in multiplayer was removed from the non-steam version some time ago via a patch I believe. There was a solution using so-called "Stronghold2 Manager" some time back but that always showed up having viral content and was hard to find (and you had to trust...). I found this source code (Mod edit: link removed)

    • Internal Game Modification & Format Deciphering (Support/Discussion)

      Hello all, Stronghold 2 is definitely an aged game, but has a flare to it I haven't been able to shake since I first played it around 2005-2006. However, after starting it back up again recently in the past month I thought it was time to dig deeper into what makes this game work and how we can get more out of it. First, my background is a back-end low-level (closer to machine language than languages like Python - I work with C++ and such) programmer. I love binary data (especially binary files)

    • Stronghold 2 - Steam Edition, Version 1.5

      Fairly recently, Firefly released a digital Steam edition of Stronghold 2 in order to keep up to date with the growing online digital market. Stronghold 2 on disc has not been selling with the change in computer hardware and in consumer needs. CD ROMs are no longer seen as a requirement of a computer and even pre-built systems often come without. Therefore, getting older games into the digital market allows Firefly to gain more and to also keep games up to date with relative ease.?   Currently,
