If you have purchased Omegalodon either on Desura, or through a bundle that awarded a Desura key, you can NOW retrieve your Steam key. To do this, go to:

Sign in, and click the Keys button next to Omegalodon. You will be able to download the game on Steam when it releases in a few days. If you purchased on Indievania, Amazon, or a bundle that awarded a Zip file, you need to wait a bit longer. I will be updating all versions to the new 1.5 release regardless.

Once you have your Steam key, do this:

1. Launch Steam
2. Click Games in the toolbar at the top
3. Click Activate a Product on Steam

Wow, okay. That was unexpected.

I'm going to start working on Steam integration ASAP. I have no idea how to do that, but I'll figure it out. As you may know, Omegalodon was Greenlit along with 100 other games as a 'stress test' for Valve's new self-publishing tech. Many of these games aren't finished, so you'll see them roll out slowly over the coming months. Omegalodon is finished. Therefore, I assume, it will be one of the first. Maybe?

In addition to Steam integration I'll be updating the game with network code improvements, bug fixes, and MAYBE a bit of new content depending on popularity - a sort of "STEAM Edition" thing.

This creates a problem, however: As the standalone game has no patcher, anyone who purchased from a bundle or uses the downloadable ZIP from Desura will be unable to update and join servers running the new version. To remedy this, I'll be offering ONE FREE STEAM KEY to anyone who purchased the game BEFORE THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN.

You must email me with proof of purchase. A bundle receipt or a Desura key is acceptable. DON'T DO THIS YET. I'll keep you informed.
