Giveaway: Steampunk Art Print from The Dead Flowers Case

I have something very exciting for you guys today!  I was contacted by representatives from a new video game launching on Kickstarter and they are offering a fantastic art print to one lucky reader of this blog.  More details on the giveaway in a bit, but first let's talk about the game.

Sculpture by Stephane Halleaux
The game is called The Dead Flowers Case and it is a steampunk point-and-click adventure game.  The art direction of the game is based on the sculptures of Belgian artist Stephane Halleaux.  Mando Production, the game developer, is lead by two veteran designers who were instrumental in creating acclaimed PC adventure hit Syberia. 

Here's what they have to say about the story of the game:

"The Dead Flowers Case is an adventure game in which players must use all of their skills to investigate the case and unravel the many mysteries that will ultimately expose the perpetrator of this terrible crime. 
The adventure is set in a Steampunk world ruled exclusively by order and the mechanized organization of all life and work activities. Regarded by the authorities as being too chaotic and free, plant life was eradicated long ago, meaning that nobody has seen a plant or a tree for generations, and so the notion of a « flower » had long since slipped into the realm of legend. In place of food, everyone swallows a supplemental Nevrovitamin pill three times a day.
One day, however, something triggers the alarms of the only car factory: the company’s Chief Accountant and MecaBrain is tragically found dead at his workstation (which as anyone agrees is an unusual event at the worst of times). Perhaps most mysterious of all, found next to the body, in a world in which plant life is but a distant memory, lies a solitary bunch of dead flowers."

Now pretty much anyone who knows me knows I really, really love adventure games.  I've been playing them since I was 8 years old or so and they are my favorite kind of game.  So to say I'm all over this is a bit of an understatement.  

So what about the free stuff?  They are giving away a limited edition print signed by artist Stephane Halleaux.  This is the print:
