      Awesome! I thought the first one was best but... after some thought I go with you! Hope you win!

    uh...correct me if im wrong, but (from what i can see) on steam you can only purchase all 5 chapters at a bulk price of $34.99, so even if you do download this free version, you kinda pay for it later if you get the other chapters :S

    A promotion that's only valid on Sep 19th and announced on Sep 18th? That too, on a Friday?

    Telltale games are you only targetting super-mega-ultimate hardcore gamers with nothing else to do?

    This promotion was managed very badly, IMO
