Just Tactics – 2 codes for free

I got a nice message from the developer of the Just Tactics game.

Just Tactics is multiplayer 1v1 and the community is still small (which is why any more help spreading the word about Just Tactics is appreciated :) so it can be hard to find a match in the Quickmatch queue. So we have meetup times. If you join at 11:00 AM, 3:00 PM, or 9:00 PM EST you will find an opponent for sure. Additionally, someone from the team is usually in the queue helping people out from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM EST.

He donated me 2 free keys for the game. So the first two who drop me a line at Marko.Kaiser (at) linux-gamers.net will get a code.
