Post news Report article RSS Feed Jailbreak Christmas Giveaway!

Jailbreak is nearly done, so we've been overcome with generosity! So we're giving away games! For Christmas! Exclusively on ModDB! And it's really easy!

Posted by Wills on Dec 21st, 2009

Well, it's Christmas! And what's Christmas all about? Shamelessly giving away Games to get votes! Wait... What? It's a Christian feast commemorating the birth of Jesus? Pah! GAMES!! VOTES! You want some a new fangled sexy game for Christmas? Then get involved in our ridiculously simple competition below!

And don't forget to vote for us in the ModDB Awards 2009!

Maybe you've been dying to play Fallout 3, or perhaps Left 4 Dead 2? Dragon Age? Modern Warfare 2? Borderlands? The choice is yours. The only stipulation is; it has to be on Steam. The Jailbreak team will be the judges, and I will personally be purchasing and gifting the game to you on Christmas day if you win, and will private message the winner to transfer the gift!

The Competition:
We're a fan of Haiku's. We think you ModDB lot are rather clever. So... We're combining the two. All you've got to do is post in the comments section below with a three line Haiku about Jailbreak. Here's one to get you going:

Example wrote:A competition,
There could be many entries,
Yet more work for Wills

As easy as that! So get posting! The closing date for entries is Midnight, GMT on Christmas Eve! As a special bonus, EVERYONE who posts an entry, will get Jailbreak: Source 0.6, three days early!

Don't forget to add yourself to our Mod Watch if you haven't already! And if you fancy getting more involved in our community, then join our forums over at or learn something new about the Source Engine from the Jailbreak Blog!

For those who don't know: haikus usually follow a syllable pattern of 5-7-5.

Dinosaurs and Bots
With guns, explosions, and gore
Jailbreak is the one.

Jailbreak Source, a lesson in fun:

Jailbreak Source is fun, like looking at the sun, it hurts your eyes, makes you wanna die, but you have a lot of fun and eat a pizza pie.

An example of a haiku is

Five syllables here,
Seven syllables this line,
Five are here again.

So my entry is

Jailbreak, a mod,
Half Life 2, an awesome game,
I voted for it.
