The Steam Summer Camp Sale Begins!

Ah, I love the fresh smell of the digital landscape! It's time for Steam's Summer Sale and this time it's about summer camp: fishing, hiking, flashlights, sunburns, mosquitos, getting chased by animals that can eat you, and bringing your Nintendo DS because it pisses off mom and dad. Okay, maybe I got a bit too personal there.

Anyway, the wonderful guys and gals at Steam not only have a slew of daily deals, but also a bunch of in-game activities you can perform (like Sunbathing, getting a perfect run in World 1-1 in bit.Trip Runner), which will earn you tickets that will award you free items in their Prize Booth. For 3 tickets each, you can earn yourself the likes of Goo Gear Snorkels for Portal 2 and Summer Shades for Team Fortress 2.

100 lucky winners will win the Grand Prizeā€¦ the Top 10 games on their wish list for free. Better sort your wish lists now, because Christmas is coming early for some of you!
