Games with free keys, when you voted
Hello, just a little question for all, does anyone know, where you get a key, when you greenlighted a game?

There is no included function for that as it is quite undesirable behaviour. It's seriously douchy behaviour from the developer playing on peoples greed and desire for "free stuff" instead of their interest in the game.
It subverts the point of the question and the answer given.

Also you can't get any keys until the game in question have been greenlit AND released.
I personally have no idea how the developer will know who has pressed the "yes" button for their game and how they will deliver the keys, so it might also be fraudulent marketing. Unless they just hand out keys to anyone that comes by and claim they pressed "yes" way back.

Borrom line: if you pressed the "yes" button, then buy the damn game.

They make a extra discussion, when they voted, then say in this discussion, that you voted

I think everyone shouldjust say they pressed "yes" even if they didn't. That way they still get free crap without contributing to that crap getting unjustified support to get onto Steam instead of other better game. A "better game is defined as "a game that isn't resorting to bribing people for votes because that game isn't good enough to get in without it".

I'd be unsurprised if these scummy devs didn't also use that as an excuse not to hand out any keys, saying that more people claimed to have voted than did so they've no way of telling who is lying. If they're prepared to circumvent Greenlight with bribes, I wouldn't put it past them.

...And another one has started with the same scummy promotion, actually announcing it on the project page itself. Result - about 40 pages already full of sheep bleating 'Voted'. Would be nice if Valve stamped out this practice.

Obviously fake. The game XxGamerNickxX is talking about (which ever it is) is not handing out free copies of their game! They lied!

would you have bought them if there wasn't a free gamecopy promo?

Great. Then I'm glad you were "voting" correctly, and happy you got hold of the games you like. Even if I find the practise of promoting things that way to be very shady, I'm more happy that you are using Greenlight correctly.

Uh and what if you voted for the game and it was $80? Should you still have to buy?

An unlikely and quite unreasonable scenario to try to argue a nonpoint about takeing no responsibility for the way you answer the question.

If you were not informed by the dev about how much the final product would be worth when it is diverging so far from the standard price point for games, if Steams pricing suggestions does not correct that pricepoint, if you were taken completley by surprise by the price and it either breaks your budget or simply isn't worth it anymore than ofc you shouldn't need to buy it.

But you should be intending to buy the thing based on the information provided and the probable price of the item when you answer the question if the answer you are providing is "yes".

Is that an extensive enough answer?

Extensive or not its not answering the question. The point is that your rational is absurd because theres lots of other factors why you wouldnt buy even if you voted YES. Price, quality, style, etc all might be different in the final product (except of course there arent many final products with all the early acess alphas but thats another subject).

Sometimes people vote for things and then change their mind, and sometimes people buy things and then change their mind. Such is life.

Also I predict that the weather yesterday was quite nice.
