200,000 Milestone Giveaway / Death Rally 2012 (Steam) [ENDED]

Back in February 2012, I set up The Sudden Stop as an Alan Wake site to celebrate the series and the community with fellow fans. Even just moments after I posted about the site on the forums, I was blown away by the amount of support and kindness that the community had and gave. That initial impression is something which I always reflect fondly on. This morning, the site's counter clicked over to 200,000 visitors, a total which has been counting since its opening, which is pretty unbelievable for me. Thank you to everyone who has visited and supported the site over the past four years. It really means a lot to me. :)

To say thank you, I wanted to arrange a little a giveaway! The prize is a copy of Death Rally (2012) on Steam (usually £6.99).  The game is a remastered version of Remedy's first title of the same name, and it's pretty addictive. I have the game on my Android tablet and I still replay races even years later.
