We’re going to start simple. We’ve got keys for the City of Steam alpha (which you can read all about right here). The very exclusive testing will run for three consecutive weekends, starting this Friday. That’s July 20 – 22, July 27 – 29 and August 3rd – 5th.

The first batch of keys will be split amongst the comment section of this post and Twitter. Here’s how to earn your two entries:

1) Leave a comment below and tell us why we should give you a key. Be funny, be serious, be passionate… be clothed. Please. One comment per user (be sure to sign in with Facebook or Twitter so we can contact you).

2) Follow @RipTen on Twitter and tweet the following. “I wish everything were powered by water vapor. RT to win a City of Steam Beta Code from @RipTen. #RipTenCityofSteamGiveaway” 

Contest ends at 5 PM PST, Thursday July 19, 2012. Codes will be distributed on the morning of July 20, 2012.
