Update: This offer has ended.
The Humble Store is giving away Season 1 of The Walking Dead (the game, not the show) for free today and tomorrow! There's no strings attached and nothing else you have to purchase. It's part of a promotion for the End of Summer game sale currently happening.
This game has been around for a while and been available in a number of different sales, so it's possible you've seen it for as low as $7 or even less. That being said, it's not often you can get something completely free like this.
In order to get the game you will need a Humble Store account and a Steam account. After you've logged in with your Humble account you will have to link it to your Steam account. This can be annoying if you haven't done it before, but it's only a minor inconvenience. After that you'll be emailed a link to your Humble account email. Clicking the link brings you to a page of advertisements for the Humble End of Summer sale and the Steam key is at the bottom. Just click to "Redeem on Steam" and you'll see a product key there that can be used to add the game to your Steam Library.
The Walking Dead is an episodic game. Much like you might have to wait a week for the next episode of the TV Show, this game was released in small, separated adventures that took time to be produced and released. If you get this deal, you'll get all the episodes of Season 1 at one time so you don't have to wait.
If you like the game, there are multiple seasons at this point since it released back in 2012. The Humble Store also has the 400 Days DLC for just $1.24, which requires Season 1 to play anyway.
