Mailing out Steam Keys (CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER)
I am mailing out Steam Keys to all our previous customers now. This will likely take all day, so I will post updates in this thread to let people know how it's going.

I am using a script to send the emails out in batches of 500 / hour. We have about 10,000+ previous direct customers, so this will take about 20 hours, ie, all day.

Ran into a small glitch early on, but the script logs which emails went through and which didn't, so it's just a temporary setback. I'll post more soon and let you know once I get the script up and running permanently.

Okay, the glitch is because my hosting company is throttling my outbound email. I'm on customer support with them, should figure this out soon, they're usually very reasonable about stuff like this.

Heard back from support. I'm allowed to send un-metered outbound mail, but only if I do it in a certain special way. Tweaking the knobs and switches now...

Cool! I'm sending out 500 keys every hour. I accidentally alphabetized the email list, though, so to all the Zoe Zechmanns of the world: my sincerest apologies for perpetuating alphabetic discrimination.

Okay, so I've heard the keys are going to people's spam filters. On Gmail at least, mark it "NOT SPAM" because I believe Gmail has an adapative filter. If enough people do this, it might fix it for everyone!

Ooo, can't wait. I already use Steam to open a shortcut of the game anyway. Now when I open the game, it'll open as a legit Steam game.

Progress: ~1,000 down. ~9,000 to go. 500 go out each hour.

I just wanted to say Dōmo arigatō to the development team for all your hard work & making a real pc game with the level of customization every game should have. You're one of about 10 teams that I support with my wallet, looking forward to future work.

P.S Looking forward to achievement whoring it all night long!

cant wait to receive mine. :)

Sent about 4500. ~6100 left. Check your spam folder. They're being sent out alphabetically, the last one sent out started with "jessy"

thx a lot

Tweaked the script, sent everything out. The mail server probably queued them up past a certain limit, so now it will send out continuously over the next 15 hours or so.
