Rainslick as a groomsmen gift

So I got married a few weeks ago, 2 days after release to be precise, which is why I still haven't played it yet. My groomsmen are both big PA fans and I was thinking of getting them each a copy of the game. However, my wife pointed out that just getting someone a 20$ game, particularly one that exists only digitally is kind of lame.

So I was wondering. How can I enhance this? I thought of the contest Ars held with the USB drives that had custom art, and that was pretty neat. Khoo, Vlad do you know if any of those still exist, and can be obtained by the unwashed masses? Or perhaps burning it onto a CD with some art one one of those stick-on labels. A perfect world would be sketches from Gabe drawn for such an occasion, but that doesn't seem likely.

As far as logistics, other than grabbing the deliberately huge podcast, I haven't actually used GreenHouse yet, so what hoops must be jumped through to obtain licenses and associate them with someone who isn't me?

    Apparently it's on Steam now, so you could gift it to them that way.

    Real simple from Greenhouse. You buy the game and they e-mail you a license key. You then download the game from their server and input the key at install.

    While what Phanman says is true, there is currently no convenient way to "gift" the purchase. The game will be registered in your name, under the user name you choose, and the address you provide.

    If you have this personal information from your groomsmen available, you could probably manage to create accounts in their name. Greenhouse definitely needs a gifting system akin to Steam's, however.

    I think what he is saying is he'd like it to be something a little more special than just a copy of the game. Like a cool way to present the gift as well as the game itself/

    If they're big PA fans buy them the game and a print of their favorite strips.

    Ahh, yes good idea. I always forget they do prints of all the strips.

    Me too. I'll look into that. I don't know what the one's favorite strip is, but I have a good idea of the others.

    You could uh, burn the installer to a disc and put a label on the disc of a comic.
