The bot will send you a link to a gog.com page with the code already applied. You only have to click accept to add “The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav” to your GOG library.

Straight from their Reddit post.

1. Send a PM to user /u/GOGaway. Keep it simple, since we're not going to be reading the PMs here. Maybe you wanna tell GOGaway what you did last summer, or your secret plans for world domination. Whatever you say there, we won't judge.

2. Wait. We have 40,000 codes to give away and Reddit's API recommends a 3 second delay between each PM; that means that it will be, like, a minimum of 36 hours until we give all of the keys out. Don't worry, though. We got your PM. I totally checked.

3. The bot will read the mail and send you a PM with a GOG.com key for the “The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav”.

“The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav” was released on June 22, 2012 and puts you in the body of the hero, Geron, as you try to unravel the mysteries of a plot that threatens to destroy Andergast. The adventure takes Geron out of Andergast and into uncharted territories of Adventuria. Unlike the new “Blackguards” game which is a 40 hour long RPG, this original release by Daedalic Entertainment is a point and click style adventure game. Every sidequest and puzzle in the game has multiple solutions to ensure you can continue the story in any manner you choose.

Best of all, even if this game is from 2012, it has breathtaking art. If you play this game for no other reason, it should be just to look at how gorgeously rendered everything in the game is.

Point and click game fans, as well as those who have always loved "The Dark Eye" pen and paper games, are sure to love this game.
