Retrieve Steam AppID

Since it's already possible to link Steam accounts to your itch account, is there a way we can link Steam AppID's to our games on itch, so anyone who owns the game on Steam can get it on itch automatically? Steamworks no longer offers Third Party Key integration.

Along the same lines, is there a way to import keys from other sites so users who purchased a game at another portal can redeem it on itch? IndieGameStand is looking like it might be dead, so any way to transfer ownership into itch would be a huge help.

Hello,

We haven't considered adding a way for people to own games on itch.io that they already own on Steam. I need to think about it some more but it could be an interesting feature.

You can import a list of email addresses and generate keys from them using the Kickstarter import tool. We support a plain CSV format that includes a list of emails (maybe the tool should be renamed at some point). Once you've imported them you can send out a email to everyone using the email tool. More info here: https://itch.io/updates/improved-buyer-emailing-kickstarterintegration

It would need one layer of security beyond just putting in the AppID number, like if there's a Steamworks call to check that your login credentials match the AppID's administrator.

For now, the Kickstarter Import feature will do (maybe Backer or Community Import?). Gonna be a lot of emails to sift through! Hooray! :/
