The Great Big Pre-Update Day Giveaway

Back in the days when Absinthe still had money, she spent a lot on various game codes that she would never play.

In a post-Covid shot, pre-Update Day haze, she's about to give away some prizes to the lovely people of Iwaku.


It's all very simple. One guess per category per person... for now! Guess right, and win a game code for Steam.

Guess the last thing I bought on Amazon

I've just taken a screenshot of the last thing I watched on Netflix. Guess the show correctly and win a code!

The last dating sim I played

What thing I asked Mr. Absinthe to pick up from the shops


First to guess wins! If nobody guesses the thing, the closest guess wins!

___


I'm running this until 10am GMT tomorrow morning so hop in quick!

I'm keeping this open until Update Day, or until I'm out of codes to give away!

:D​

I'm extending this for a few days because my cat ate my classes and I got my dates mixed up >___> This is why I'm still an intern, dang it.

No right answers yet but dang Lucky, do we know each other IRL? I do regard Amazon as an all-encompassing scourge on humanity that I try to deal with solely for their web services and I am big sims fan. Also, I am perpetually out of milk because I am lactose intolerant and the shops don't carry alternatives but that wasn't what I asked for yesterday!

____

So to clarify - I did buy something on Amazon that I couldn't source locally. Which is unusual because A) I live in area full of quaint specialist shops and B) What I wanted wasn't something I'd classify as hard to find at all! ...It also isn't anything technical or web-service-y so don't worry about trying to figure out anything like that!

I'm totally not using this as an excuse to check out new shows on Netflix. But I promise you that while it has a pretty neat soundtrack - it's not a musical or a movie.

While I love Stardew Valley and The Sims... this is definitely a dating sim. A player character trying to romance candidates that may or may not accept their advances and/or try to murder them in the process.

As for what I asked Mr Absinthe to pick up... It was an ingredient for a super complicated meal I'm making.

Nah, I'm just a good guesser ( Thar or I do know you IRL and just don't know it's you because internet anonymous and stuff). Also, damn, your car ate your classes. I'm surprised it could eat that many people.

( Also do we get infinite guesses until someone gets it right)

I can't say I'm interested in a game code, but I wanna guess.

I'm also opening this up to a full one guess per 24 hours :D and yes, she's a very hungry creature capable of eating glasses, entire classes, and also unsupervised bowls of super spicy ramen. :I

Depending on my schedule I am on at various times during the week. Usually most reliable after 5, though sometimes I nap. Weekends are a free for all schedule wise.

  1. Amazon are famous for it
  2. I preferred the book... but the show is a different beast altogether
  3. My favorite ship is between a demon and a frankenstein monster. Come @ me.
  4. The thing I'm making is ramen. Not your instant, budget kind - the everything from scratch, including the noodles kind. Totally worth it without any ramen shops or noodle bars nearby.

Slice of Life is my favorites, but I also love fandom based* and country based rps. I'm open to trying most things, but there are a couple that I won't do.

*I'm not interested in fandoms I don't know and I am not interested in playing canon characters. I only play OCs.
1) some type of smart home system?
2) Goosebumps
3) -
4) scallions
