The official statement is as follows:

"We are aware that RCRU is down on Steam. We have contacted Valve's copyright department, and will let you know when access is restored."
i hope it's back up soon guys, as of now even keys not purchased on steam as considered invalid, hopefully Valve clear this up soon and take legal action against the perpetrators.

exactly, you can still buy the game on Humble, but it seems you cannot activate the key on steam.

unless there has been a recent issue with it, i just bought a key and steam is telling me it's invalid, it may just be lag between humble and steam but now i'm in the "too many activations" period so i will try again tomorrow.

If this goes the same way as the previous game Alex DMCAed then yes it will be back up, at some point.
Well, let's hope this is as fribalous as it seems and is treated as such. Still, the fact that the game was taken down even after Mauer was supposedly twarted in doing so the first time (Can't substantiate she ever actually attempted) is a little disturbing.

I guess we'll have to wait and see. Hearts out to you Devs.
I'm pretty sure it's coming back. If you want more information on the person who is trying to destroy everyone around her, look up SidAlpha and watch his series of Alex Mauer videos. It's a hilarious, incredibly distressing, and sad story all bundled into one.

But yes, more than likely RCRU will be back. And if at all possible, I suggest the developers sue Alex for the loss of potential income she's taken from them.

Steam have to take it down straight away to keep their safe harbour status under the DMCA. I suspect that Valve will see the devs arguments and go "yep, all legit, games back up."

Just going to stop this particular discussion right here. As far as I am concerned Alex's gender is completely irrelevant to the matter. It should never have been brought into this by anyone. And we're simply not going to discuss it - or any matter stemming from it - here.

I will simply nuke any post that brings it up again. That includes anyone meta-arguing about this post. Thank you.

(Edit: I have deleted the original post. Please do not respond to it.)

He's probably a troll, but you're doing the right thing though. Andrew, best mod AU.
I hope this resolves quickly for you.
Do you have a gofundme page for legal costs or are you okay on that front?
Hang in there! <3

Thank you :) We do not have a gofundme at the moment. I do not expect that we will need one, but of course we will let everyone know if the situation changes.
