Steam Keys for Indie Royale buyers
I got this and Lunnye Devitsy in the Indie Royale bundle a while back, and they are awesome! Should we expect to get Steam keys for this?

I would like to know this too, but from what I know, we should get keys

We're not giving out Steam keys, the Desura games are DRM-free however so they're not tied to any platform.

Well, I for one am not buying these games again just to have them on Steam so they won't be getting any more money from me. It's funny, I actually got Lunnye Devitsy from a bundle, but then also bought it from Gamersgate to support the dev but I guess they also want me to buy it on Steam if I want it there.

You guys should really reconsider this as it would be great PR. People who got the game from the bundle will probably not pay for it again and if they got it on Steam they would expose the games to their friends.

This is also very common with other bundle games that pop up on steam.

This might be a bad mistake on your part as a developer.

Especially an Indie developer looking to get out in the market to as MANY people as possible.

Most people will not rebuy a game .. especially one they have as DRM Free. Getting Steam keys out to people who already own it would generate great exposure as all their friends will see them playing the game.

Giving out keys generates great PR and talk amongst people. NOT giving out keys also gets people talking .. but in a bad way. Word of mouth advertising .. it's FREE and works great. ... or completely against you.

I never got the bundle so I don't have the game .. and right now chances are I won't.

Good point! Backpeddle begin! I've started the ball rolling on getting Steam keys out to IR bundle owners.

Keys won't be handed out for older, non-2013 Edition bundles.

The 2013 Editions had 5 months work put into them, they were big updates :)
