Since Nintendo announced it would be extending the period to redeem codes on both the 3DS and Wii U, even more developers have joined in on the free giveaway fun.

To get one of these older entries for free, all you have to do is direct message the developer on Twitter or Discord. You can also earn a second ticket by sharing a photo of your Silver Falls installation and tagging Nintendo in it. Quantities are "very limited", so get in on this while you can.

Fellow indie dev Astrosaurus Games has also announced it's giving away 100s of free codes for the Wii U title Collateral Thinking (attached to the tweet below).
