Getting this game on steam instead of Desura?
So out of all the hype I had around this game, I pre-purchased it for 4$ less on the first day it was purchaseable, but did so on Desura as I saw no other options at that moment

Now, is there a way for me to transfer my legit copy from Desura to Steam?
I want it on Steam to record my progress on Steam, and add it to my "official" game library as I don't really even use Desura

So, is there a way, or should I try contacting Frictional Games in hope of getting a key?

If you email them with some screencaps of it in your Desura account, they might give you a key. I don't know though, because then they'd feel obligated to give out keys to everyone with it on Desura, which would result in a lot of key trading.

It won't work. There is a very easy argument to be made about buying the game for yourself on Desura and asking them for a Steam key that will actually go to your friend's account, as there are no way to prove that both the Desura purchase and the Steam account belong to the same individual. If they allowed such policy, anyone could duplicate once their game onto steam from another retailer. Companies don't usually act on exceptions if it is unwise to implement the practice for all customers.

You can still "add" the .exe file to your steam list and name it as Amnesia : A Machine for Pigs. It will show as such to your friends when you do play the game. It won't show up in your profile as one of your owned game and it won't show the total time played, but there are no achievements at all for A Machine for Pigs anyway.

I'll try my luck, prehaps I'll stumble into a worker in a good mood, something I love about indie companies like Frictional Games is their connection and care about their fans
Thanks for the help guys, I appriciate it
