One Angry Gamer "Want to own the original game that helped put Overkill Software on the map? Well, you’ll be able to do so starting October 18th. The very first Payday: The Heist will be available for free, for 24 hours starting October 18th. Anyone who downloads the game will be able to keep the game… forever! Well, technically you’ll be able to keep it for as long as you keep using Steam, or for as long as Valve keeps Steam’s doors open, or for as long as you’re alive. Either one, really. "
