XPG GRIT Monthly Giveaway!

Friends, Gamers, PC builders, lend me your ears. I have news of giveaways and amazing prizes.

A happy community is a healthy community and what gamers love more than anything is great games. But since XPG doesn't make games (yet) the best we can do is offer you ways to better enjoy great games made by the companies that do make them. To that end, every month XPG GRIT will hold a giveaway event for different prizes.

Each month we will host a different giveaway with new prizes and ways to enter/win. Each month's giveaway post will always be pinned near the top of the "Fun & Games" category of the blog. We will also include the names of the winners in the post as an easy way to see if you won. So make sure you check back often for updates.

NOVEMBER 2021 GIVEAWAY DETAILS

This month's prize: 1 Steam key for Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals x15

It's November and that means eating candy you still haven't finished from last week, figuring out what to do with an expensive costume you spent a month making to wear once, and seeing Halloween decorations piled up in store on sale for a fraction of the price they were last month. To celebrate the post-Halloween festivities, this month's giveaway is ironically and intentionally also about horror games.

The good people at Glowstick Entertainment were gracious enough to sponsor last month's spooktacular giveaway with Steam keys for Dark Deception. Surprisingly, many of you were already familiar with Dark Deception. One of the winners already had the deluxe edition and ended up requesting to have a different winner be chosen in his place so they too could enjoy the game. You love to see it. Glowstick Entertainment was so encouraged by the love and support showed to their game and the horror games genre as a whole that they decided they wanted to sponsor this month's giveaway as well. But this time with a different game.

Dark Deception is not just a game. It's a franchise. In addition to the titular game, there are also other games and products related to the Dark Deception universe. One such other game is the multiplayer experience Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals. This is a multiplayer game that allows up to four players. Today, November 3rd 2021, marks the one year anniversary of the game's release, so it seemed like the perfect candidate for this month's XPG GRIT monthly giveaway.

Leave a comment on this post about your favorite indie multiplayer game. Tell us which game it is, what you liked about it, and why it's your favorite non-AAA multiplayer experience. It can be an old game or a new game. It can be any gameplay genre. It just has to be an indie developed multiplayer game. Only one entry per a user but feel free to discuss games with others in the comments.

15 random users from the comments section will be selected as our winners for this month. You will be awarded one key for the multiplayer horror game Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals courtesy of Glowstick Entertainment.

Rocket League; it started as a small indie game that became very popular and is still going strong. It's basically cars playing soccer, the game is super fun yet requires serious skills to rank up!

Jude Clark ,09 Nov, 2021

Personally, my favourite is Overcooked. It is a fun and chaotic game, especially when there is 4 people playing together. Its fun and difficult and I love that. Plis, getting 3 stars on levels is really satisfying.

My favorite game is Dead by Daylight. The game has many characters to play as, each one with different mechanics and needed skill level. The atmosphere of the game is well thought out, with the different maps and low visibility, keeping everybody on edge.

Well first off my favorite multiplayer game is Dead By Daylight because it has such great characters and a wide universe, tons of cross overs and an interesting storyline, the characters are also super cool and they have great models.

Bl00d ,09 Nov, 2021

My favorite multiplayer indie game is crab game. I love it when I can push people in red light green light. I also love it when I can tag someone in bomb tag right before the bomb explodes. Overall the game is funny and great.

Lucas Santanera ,13 Nov, 2021

My indie multiplayer game is Valheim. Because of the funny situations that happen. It has happened to me to be collecting materials for an axe and I end up crushed by a tree, or I fight against a complicated enemy and I die in the silliest way possible.

My favorite indie game is Rocket league. It is a great game to play with your friends. IM not good at RL, but i just play for fun. Another great indie game is Dark deception. That game left me speechless, so it would be fun to play multiplayer then!!!

Juan Manuel Arevalos Gonzalez ,16 Nov, 2021

Hi, my favorite indie multiplayer is Devour because playing with friends help to build fear and a sense of reality, i love it.

Jaydin Roberts ,16 Nov, 2021

As of recently, I've been playing a lot of Risk of Rain 2 with friends! The third-person shooter action it brings, collecting items, and the way me and my friends come together to get through an area or beat a boss. The music is also amazing. Thank you <3

Rom ,18 Nov, 2021

My favorite indie multiplayer game is Amonng Us. I love playing this game with my nephews and nieces and its actually our bonding game which makes it more exciting and fun.

My favourite indie multiplayer game is monsters and mortals since i was able to olay the beta. It's  mu favourite because i got to play as the gold watcher and fight other players who were also monsters/mortals.

Luke ,19 Nov, 2021

I watched 8-bitryan play dark deception few years ago and instantly fell in love with it. I bought DD complete and had a blast with it. The devs are really communicative with their comminity prividnog news and updates on their games which makes me stick up for a long run. Then Monsters and mortals dropped. I liked it as much as Dark Deception. Pretty fun game to play with friends a lot of good colaborations. So my answer is: My favorite multiplayer indie game is monsters and mortals 

Yeray ,19 Nov, 2021

My favourite multiplayer indie game is Minecraft. I've been playing it since I was like 10 and it still hasn't grown old for me. I used to play Pocket Edition on my grandma's Ipad back then and played a lot with my sister and nephews. We were never good at anything in the game, but it still was fun. We used to make big builds like hotels and mansions, but they were all just basically big cubes. I still play Minecraft to this day, but I've moved to Java Edition now. I play on Hypixel with some friends a lot and then we just goof around in Bedwars for example. I'm still amazed how people could make these kinds of gamemodes in Minecraft. I played a lot on SMPs with more friends too, it was really fun to just see the world around you evolve when logging back in after a day or two. Sadly that server shut down because of player inactivity, and the host wanted to host a server for another game which he only could do if he took down the Minecraft server. Luckily I did get a worlddownload of the map and I'm so glad I did. I also owned my own SMP for a bit, but I kept adding unneeded plugins which in a way ruined the server. Once it got the server really active, but after a while people got bored, I went crazy with what I could add and added way too much which made some people unable to join and a lot more happened which eventually led me to shut it down. I am trying to get a new SMP open, this time hosted on a friends PC (he came up with the idea) and we are still trying to figure out how to set everything up before it opens. It will probably be a small SMP, but that doesn't matter if you're playing with friends. There also was a time I bought Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch. I don't recommend buying the Switch version if you are into Multiplayer. It takes a long time to log in with your Microsoft Account, nothing feels like loading, even your inventory will take a good 5 seconds before it opens up. The servers you can play on the Bedrock Edition aren't made for the Switch version and it is really obvious when you look at performance. In total I own 4 versions of the game: Java Edition, Pocket Edition, Switch, Wii U and I would say Minecraft is great on all of them (except like I said the Switch version, but only with multiplayer) and I am happy that a lot of the versions are still getting updates. I surely can't wait until the 30th! I hope update 1.18 will keep me and a lot others busy for a while.

 

I only now noticed that this comment is really long oh goodness. If you read all of it, thank you I guess. Have a good day you all!

Andrei-Alin ,19 Nov, 2021

My favourite indie game is Among Us, because it's very fun to play with your friends and you have to have some skills to win in this game. It can damage your trust your friends have, but it's worth the fun and the trust which you lose is just for the game, not in real life.

CyntasticGaming+ ,20 Nov, 2021

My favourite multiplayer indie game is Phasmophobia, because you can work together to identify the ghosts or prank and scare each other intentionally and unintentionally! One of my favourite things in the game is laughing at my sister's misshapen ragdoll body when the ghost gets her instead of me! It has brought me and my sister tons of laughs, and we have no intention on stopping our adventures in this game anytime soon! :)

Trimpatri ,20 Nov, 2021

My favorite indie multiplayer game is Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals, because I am amazed by the graphics, gameplay, and the fact that Glowstick Entertainment got Silent Hill and Poppy Playtime soon. I am excited for the upcoming DLC and I want Glowstick Entertainment to do their very best for the future and keep surprising everybody.

Kyle ,21 Nov, 2021

My favourite indie game is most likely Terraria. I've poured countless hours into the game and have had amazing experiences playing with other people. As for monsters and mortals I remember watching dark deception all the way back when markiplier played the early version of it and was instantly hooked with the concept. Watching this game evolve has truely been a spectitcal and I've enjoyed watching a variaty of content creators play it; especially monsters and mortals. Watching YouTubers like Dawko and 8-bitryan play the game is so entertaining and I would love to have the game for myself as it seems like such good fun. Fingers are crossed ???? 

dani ,21 Nov, 2021

my favorite is dead by daylight i like its gore and satisfying killers and powers they own

LuckyDiel ,21 Nov, 2021

My favorite indie multiplayer game must be Cuphead. 
And the reason is because it is beautiful hand drawn game in the style of cartoons from the 30s.
The second reason is the music. Music is the bread and butter of the game, recorded by an actual band!

marcus ,23 Nov, 2021

Hello, answering the question of your favorite indie multiplayer game, it would be pacify, I liked its dynamics that most insists on exploring and burning the wrists besides that the end was a bit unexpected: V, by the way I think there has been a problem with verifying the account since it sends me an email but when logging in again it sends me the unverified email message, when if it comes to verify anyway thanks for the raffle (and excellent game that I hope to win it)

Undertale - The defensive system, story, character designs as well as their personalities, game mechanics, and soundtrack are top notch. The game was in development for 32 months and was funded by a Kickstarter page, and the people that helped funded the game appeared in the credits of one of the endings. The fact that basically 1 PERSON did the entire game himself really amazes me and I can't wait to see his new games coming soon.

Sam ,24 Nov, 2021

Five Night's At Freddy's. The story and lore are off the charts, and the creativity of some game's mechanics were some things no other games had ever seen before. The animatronics themselves are very interesting, but when you jump down the rabbit hole that is the lore, you really get deep.

Tyree ,25 Nov, 2021

My favorite indie multiplayer game is Dead by Daylight, this is because I am a huge horror game fan and enjoy to share that horror with friends. I also love DBD because it features other characters from other games, like Jason or Michael. I have started getting into Dark deception so this is right up my alley, please pick me guys. Thanks.

My favorite indie multiplayer game is a game called Gamg Beasts. It's a hilarious and kind of physics based fighting game. Me and my friends found it hilarious while playing so it was worth all the time I spent downloading (my internet is not great lol). Hilarious and fun game so I'd recommend it to anyone who is interested!
