How do you download the game?

Post by CharlieX » Fri Sep 18, 2015 12:53 am

I'm a Kickstarter backer and I never got around to actually trying the game, since I knew it was in the beginning stages. I'd like to give it a try now, but...how do I download it? I read on the forums that I could do so without Steam and download it from the website, instead.

Clicking the SendOwl link just leads me to a page that contains a Steam key, and clicking that leads me to the Steam store. Color me confused. Is there no direct/DRM-free download?

We're still working out the kinks with non-Steam downloads at this point. We're trying to set up the non-Steam downloads to go through Humble, but that is still somewhat a WIP.

Hi AngerFork,

I have the same issue, I've been trying to add the game to my library, both through steam trying to find a "Redeem game Key" and through the email link. Once I click on the link it redirects me to the steam page but nothing seems to happen. Please Help...

Nevermind I found my key in an old email that lead me to the owl link instead of humble bundle.

I also was an early backer and have used two keys now and the same thing that has happened to others has happened to me: when I click redeem code in my email it takes me to a page showing how many keys I've used (currently 3 left) and when I click download it directs me to the steam webpage but won't allow me to download the game. I do have steam but can't figure out how to get the download to actually start. Can someone find a way for me to get into the new alpha please? I've been aching to play for a while now.

I've been struggling with this same issue this morning as well.

I've attempted the redemption vis Steam a few times with no success. Only taking me to the product page with an option to buy.

And the save to Dropbox option gives me a file that I can't open via the Team client.

Very confused.
