Well that was just salty and uncalled for.

Ok, since this is probably going off-topic, I started a new topic, voting for UrW on GoG. Let's do it, guys!

Well, I guess everyone has their reasons, but I actually like Steam. I've lost a lot of games over the years due to one reason or another. With Steam, I never have to worry about that. It's simply a worry free place to store my games... for me anyway.

I see no reason to argue with Steam fans. You do it the DRM-way, I do it without it. Nevertheless I'll revive my old-and-forgotten Steam account for the sake of posting a UrW review there.

Although I am a lifetime member donator, I am just going to buy URW again on Steam because I love this game so much and so happy that it is regularly updated and works on Mac and Steam now.

Thanks for the offer to convert my account to a Steam Key anyway.

Not to be pedantic, but if buying purely to support the developer you might be better off accepting the free steam key offer and then donating the price of the game directly through the enormous elk website.

Steam takes a cut for hosting the game so only a portion of your purchase actually goes directly to Sami.

I was also buying it because I wanted to save the developer time for having to dig up my lifetime membership status (he said in the above post that he was very busy with the Steam release) and to drive up sales on Steam's metrics too. I figure the $3-4 Steam takes might make it worth the time saved and sales metrics.

I also did it because I am impatient and wanted the release immediately and not have to dig up the email where I became an honorary member, so there are selfish reasons for my choice, too.

I decided to go both ways and buy a separate steam key. ;)

Heh, same here. Just realized it's on Steam and went looking for a way to download it from there and this helpful forum post was one of the first things I found.

As a side note, I'd just like to mention how much I appreciate the effort and dedication that Sami and Erkka have put into this game and into caring for their fans. I needed some account assistance one time and was pleasantly surprised to get a personal email response from Sami that solved the problem. This is one of the many things that makes UrW so special. Thank you!
