Game developer revokes a user's Steam key after negative review
20 October 2018 at 3:52 pm UTC

SolitaryI don't think games bought directly on Steam are revokable. This key was beta key he got directly from the dev as part of the Itch.io deal.

madpingerIt even makes me wonder if there are games I have that are no longer there and I'm simply unaware of it honestly.
Most likely no games are missing. You might have not noticed, but someone else would. Don't make it bigger deal than it is.

Of course, most likely none are missing, but I'm not making it a bigger deal than it is. Don't be so dismissive of others concern. It is a perfectly valid and fair statement.

I've enjoyed the dozen or so hours I've put into this title so far, but the learning curve can be a touch steep at times and require a good bit of research to get past certain points of the progression if it doesn't occur to you during regular game-play.

The style and humor is gold of course, as the prior comment indicates ^.^

Ja, I can see how there would be a need for the developer or publishers to have this sort of access in regards to the rights to revoke keys. I can't see this as more than an inappropriate and impulsive reaction by the dev, a 'human' moment perhaps without knowing the mindset of the individuals involved.


It'd be rather a rude awakening to one morning log into steam and games you paid for suddenly vanishing on you. Imagine if the user didn't have the email to draw attention to it, it could have been quite a while before they noticed otherwise. It even makes me wonder if there are games I have that are no longer there and I'm simply unaware of it honestly.

A strong argument indeed for the ability to backup your games independently of the distribution platforms, such as steam.

I'm still buthurt with this dev over the 'Red Shell' thing, sure they removed it in the end but insisted on leaving room to do such things down the road again.

It seems like all my mods just updated for 19, lol. Guess I'll try vanilla out, but I expect I'll want many of my mods back to enjoy it. Been playing it for so long now o.o;
