Indie Royale Key
Since there are usually 50 threads on this, I thought I would make one and we would stick to it.

If the developer is here, can they tell us when we will get our keys, if any?

Thanks.

I unfortunately don't have an answer to that, and the guy who promised that back then actually isn't with us anymore. Still, I'll try to look into this and tell you if I have any news -- unfortunately this isn't my area personally.

Thanks for the heads up. Might want to get something sticky'd about that before the threads start to pile up.

EDIT: Also saw the Steamworks Dev badge on mouseOver and looked at profile. You're extra awesome for liking Ys games.

I don't just like 'em, I worked on 'em. Working on Trails in the Sky at current as well.

That would be nice. But yeah it's the decision of you current Rockin' Android crew (perhaps with permission of the Japanese devs?) - IR / Desura will put the keys there if you provide them.

Easiest might be to just generate Steam keys for everybody who owns the game on Desura.

That is all kinds of extra special awesome. I hope Ys Seven and Celceta come to Steam eventually as well.

I picked this game up through the website store not too long ago--if we can get Steam keys, that'd be awesome, but even if not, I'll probably plunk down the cash for another copy just to support you guys. Hoping to see Diadra Empty available on Steam before too long as well =3

Yeah, I'm aware. It's just not up to me.

The Steam releases of FC and SC alike, actually.

Very nice. I can't wait to throw more money in your direction then.

Shouldn't it just be like, a matter of sending keys to Indieroyale for them to distribute?
Someone at indieroyale can probably very easily help out with whats needed 8v

Need mah key so I can get me some pointless achievements 8D

Now that you guys are also working on SC as well, I'm much less worried about the translation quality!

Thanks for the heads up, let us know what you hear if you get a chance.

I dont know of any greenlighted game which appeared in bundles and then on steam which refused to give Steam keys to their early (bundle) adopters and supporters. A main reason why people buy those bundles are the steam-keys.

There is zero difficulty in this and it has been done numerous times by now.

Any employee represent publicly your company.

Any decent company will make public statements as a group, an agreement between all of you.

If he promised key, it was a Company statement, i don't get why the customer should buy the game again because a company let a single employe making a publicstatement about this as the name of the company an others letting him say that.

Even more if you participated with a game in a bundle, i doubt it was only is own decision, would be really suspicious if a company start making such false advertising because an employe told something there and there!



I really like your games and m looking foward to play this game as i bougth it on the bundle to help you funding the game and getting it on steam as advertised!

Thanks

It'll happen guys, its just like Sara said, this isn't her area, so you can't blame her of being unsure of the processes involved :v
Patience~

I would LOVE to get a Steam key, but I don't recall ever being promised one with my Indie Royale purchase. Worst case, I'll just wait and pick up the Steam version when it's on sale really cheap.

In any case, this isn't worth getting mad about, especially considering most of us probably paid like $5 for the whole freaking bundle back then. I love how gamers will put up with the most terrible publisher practices (eg buying Diablo III or Sim City at all), but have a fit over some little thing in situations where they totally made out.

Also, doesn't this version have "remixed" graphics as an option? And didn't the Indie Royale version come with the soundtrack? So they are kind of different versions of the game anyway.

Yeah, I actually can't seem to find this promise even though I was sure I remembered it (and I thought I knew who made it) and people have told me that we apparently promised. Does anyone have a link?
