Steam’s mega-awesome, super-cool, epic-mind-blowing sale is now on! Each year the digital distribution market for games goes through a few big sales where almost everything from an old school copy of Doom to a pre-order of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition will go on offer. Steam itself continues to be my personal favourite place for these sales, not only because I have 99% of my gaming collection with them (biased much?) but because they give us innovative and interesting twists to their sales. The Steam Summer camp sale is no different:

“The counselors have planned a bunch of camp activities each day. Like playing
games gets you special Steam Summer Camp Achievements. Then they say you get
tickets for each Achievement you earn. Big whoop, right?!? But, guess what?
There’s a Prize Booth where you can trade your tickets for cool stuff. I made
the banner on the booth!”

I love how Steam involves their community in what they do best, gaming, and that literally doing something in those games will reward players with special DLC such as maps, and skins. I’ll be playing the games I have in order to win some tickets. Day One’s camp activities are as follows:

BIT.TRIP BEAT: Sunbathing – Get a
PERFECT in 1-1

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Retribution: Promethium Summer – Kill 50 enemies while using a flamer

Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West: Summer Hits – Kill 7
enemies in a row with headshots without dying

AaAaAA!!! – A Reckless Disregard for Gravity: Air. Wind. Sun. Pain. I Am All of This, and Your Mom
Makes a Fine Pasta Dinner – Complete the Summer
Sun level from the main menu with full points

Toki Tori: Get a Tan – Stand in
all sun beams

Swords and Soldiers HD: Complete Viking Campaign level 3 by killing all

You can also get a free ticket by joining the Official Steam Summer Camp Group.

Make sure you have at least 10 games on your Steam wish list because at the end of the sale Valve are giving 100 people 10 games from their list. There’s another 10 days each with a new set of activities so get your game on and earn some prizes! Did you get anything in the Steam sale? Let me know!
