Merry Christmas – Wayward Strategy Deserts of Kharak Giveaway.

I have made no bones about proclaiming Deserts of Kharak my most-enjoyed RTS experience this year. Its visual direction and mechanical design are compelling: capturing the haunting, stark brutality of the Homeworld franchise, while pulling the user along on one of the best narrative experiences in the RTS space. I also enjoyed the game’s multiplayer while its community was active.

It just so happens that I have a spare key for Deserts of Kharak, and I thought that I’d spread a little Christmas cheer by giving it out on the 24th of December.

To be eligible, all I ask is that you write a comment on this post before December 24 (as determined by Eastern Standard Time). On the afternoon of the 24th (approximately 6PM EST) I will assign all posters a number, and use a web-based RNG to pick the winner. I will ask the winning user to contact me either on twitter (@waywardstrategy) or Facebook (via the Wayward Strategy Facebook page) to receive the key, which will be delivered to that user before midnight EST.


  1. I have been waiting for more great RTS aricles on wayward since it has been quite a while since the last one, however a christmas giveaway is a great surprise. I too have it in my steam wishlist (Y) Good luck to all.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    1. Ragnar,

      Hello! Just wanted to reach out to you again. You won my giveaway and I’d like to coordinate with you to get you Deserts of Kharak. If you could contact me at waywardscribe (at) gmail (dot) com we can get you the game 🙂


    2. Ragnar, I hope you see this. Your response is not connected to any account, so WordPress is my only recourse to reach out to you. I hope you check back in before Jan 2, or I’ll have to choose another winner.


      1. Hey,

        Wow – nice – what a wonderful surprise 🙂 Thx S. Darkwell.
        I just wrote to you at waywardscribe (at) gmail (dot) com. I forgot to check in here for a while 🙂


  2. If you enjoyed the SP, I posted on their forum a way to get more game play out of it (adds a bit of difficulty).

    PS. Also check out my wife’s artful DOK painting on our mailbox.
