Dev Announcement About Revoked Overfall Keys
Hi Folks,

The cd-key situation is like this; years ago through a publisher, we made a deal to make Overfall known for wider audiences. This "publisher" wanted approx. 30k keys from us and said they were going to pay us after-sales. Unfortunately, we got scammed by this "publisher" (not a site like Fanatical) and couldn't receive payment. On top of that, we witnessed that these keys were being sold on other fraud sites. This is why we had to revoke them without knowing where those keys have been sold.

We're very well aware that you're aggrieved.

Take care all.

Edit: We're not talking about Fanatical with the whole fraud situation, we're in fact in contact with them to make things easier for you guys.

Edit2: There is a misunderstanding about Fanatical because many of the keys that we sent were used for their bundles and deals. Fanatical was not among the "other fraud sites" that we mentioned before, we never blamed them - never will. After getting in contact, instead of making you fill the form (which was an immediate solution patch attempt to those who got their keys revoked), we decided to provide Fanatical all the keys that got revoked from their bundles, and they'll make sure you'll receive them in the near future. We're geniunely very sorry to have this happen to you guys and wanted to fix it as soon as possible.

It's nice that you're willing to send out replacement keys if we request them, but why revoke them in the first place 3 years later? It doesn't punish your publisher.

I can understand the unfortunate circumstances that caused the issues in the first place, and I empathize with your plight, but the only people you inconvenienced here were people who thought they were buying legitimate keys.

Really?
Of all the devs that sold keys on fanatical, you're the only ones they decided to randomly scam?
Hard to believe...

Fanatical is not a scam site it's licensed 3rd party safer than most sites.

No. Won't give you infos for my key back. Maybe you'd like a GDPR fraud assignation and get a big fine for blackmailing us ?

Deal with the legit bundle sites, i'm pretty sure that this will blow to your face with a proof of payment from them, exactly the same happened from IndieGala providing a payment proof to a unlawful dev claiming he was'nt paid.

So your mess, sort this out, fast.

Oh, and by the way, happy report for scam attempt on our personal information to recover what we paid for.

It seems to be they went with a "publisher" who then made the agreement with Fanatical to bundle them. It likely wasn't their choice to bundle it. That's me reading between the lines.
Keep it. I don't even want this game.

In that case then no point in revoking the keys to every single user
Also bit odd to decide to do so 2 years later...
Like it took them 2 years to realize "Oh man! They're not paying us" ?!

the fact you're calling Fanatical a scam site, makes you look completly clueless
This is scummy beyond belief. Looks like someone's going to be featured on the next Dirty Devs.

Will you promise not to store our email addresses any longer than is necessary to send a replacement key? I don't want to provide personal information if it is going to be shared with anyone else or used for any purpose other than this.

Oh, I fully, 100% agree with this assessment. I'm not trying to diminish the impact, just trying to understand the reasoning that went into the Devs' decision, misguided or no.
lol no
Bad April fools joke. If not, then you’re actually really really stupid.
