Info regarding keys for previous owners, and save transfer
Steam keys are now available to claim if you have purchased a PC, Mac or Linux version of the game! Below is how to receive your key, as well as instructions on transferring your save over.

Humble Store

You will need to visit the Download page for your account. To do so, either use the link provided in the email you received when purchasing CSD or go directly to your account login (Log In via humblebundle.com) and click "Cook, Serve, Delicious!" in your Library page. There will be a green link on top of the page that says, "Click here for your Steam Key."


GamersGate

If you've purchased CSD, CSD for Mac or the Vertigo Gaming Bundle via Gamersgate.com, then simply sign in at Gamers Gate and go to "My Shelf > Cook, Serve Delicious!" or the VG Bundle if you've purchased that. On the right hand side of that page is a Download button, and the Steam Key should be directly below.


Desura

You will need to visit the Collections page[www.desura.com] while logged in (be sure you're using the Desura client, and not through a web browser). Click on Cook, Serve, Delicious! There are two builds- one of those builds will say you need to purchase the game to get the key. Ignore that; there should be a blank text box with Steam- Get Key. Click that button and you'll get the key.


BMT Micro (via vertigogaming.net)

If you've purchased Cook, Serve, Delicious any time before 6/5/2013, then you automatically have a Humble Store account with your Steam key! You will need to login or create an account at Humble Bundle using the same email that you purchased the game with at BMT Micro[www.humblebundle.com].

If you do not have those credentials or purchased the game after that date, then you'll need to contact me[www.vertigogaming.net] with your email or name used to buy the game on BMT Micro.

Note: there are some errors with users who got the Combo from BMT micro that didn't get a Humble Account or Steam key. Just contact me above to get your key if it doesn't work for you.


Shiny Loot, Amazon.com, Ubuntu Store, Mac App Store and MacGameStore

I will need to manually confirm purchases and issue keys if you've bought the game from any of these stores. Contact me[www.vertigogaming.net] with your order or invoice number, and the date of purchase. Please allow up to 3 business days for your key; I will try to get it to you as quickly as possible.





Transferring saves to the Steam version

Your saves are located in the DATA_otherfiles folder for PC (under Ndata1file.ini through Ndata6file.ini) and in Application Support for Mac or the app itself, depending where you bought the game. Make backup copies of these files before attempting to move them over to the Steam version.

Run the Steam version of CSD, start a new game, then skip the tutorial and Save & Quit on the main menu. You will now have a new save directory.

For PC, you'll find it under Users>(your username)>AppData>Local>CSDSteamBuild. You will need Hidden Files to be displayed to see these directories. Place your save files in the CSDSteamBuild folder.

For Mac, launch Finder and click Go>Go To Folder... and type in ~/Library/Application Support. The directory is CSDSteamMac. Place your save files in there.

Note: if your save files are named data1file.ini, you will need to place an N in front so that it reads Ndata1file.ini, otherwise it will not be read by the game!

Once you place your save file in the folder, you will need to run the game, start up your save, and then save and quit to active the Steam Cloud support.

Let me know if you need any further assistance in transferring saves over!

Thats how steam key distribution should be handled, as a well thought out part of the release.
Other companies can look at this as an example how to do it.

Thank you Devs!

I got that when I tried from the web however when I navigated there from the Desura client I was able to get the key.
