I will never do business with itch again. It would n't bother that much if you just dumped the game, and said that's it we no longer support our product. But you try and BS me with a phony "Steam Key" charade, when it's so obvious that Steam is NOT involved with itch or Aven Colony. When I point this out you ban me, it's just plain insulting. Never again.
it's just plain insulting
Fort I'm sorry to inform you... but you CAN have games not show up on Steam search, but still be on Steam. It's a feature avaliable to developers to test Steam integration in the game BEFORE public release.
A lot of developers use this feature for Closed Betas.
You seem to be under the impression that Valve is in control of when a game goes on sale and when it shows up in search. However, the truth is that the developer decides and has control over all of that. The developer of Aven Colony can make it appear on Steam anytime he wants and he can give keys to it before it's publically known. JUST LIKE WITH ITCHIO, THE PLATFORM DOESN'T HAVE INVOLVEMENT WITH THE PRODUCTS.
And what I find even more strange about your argument... is that you have a Steam Key from the developer, but you won't activate it because you don't believe them? What do you THINK that the key will do if not activate Aven Colony? It would either work or not work... if you don't want to try it, PM it to me and I'll see if it's Aven Colony lol
Also I don't work for Aven Colony, why are you saying it's "Dishonest of me" you do realize I have NOTHING to do with them, right?
Just answer this simple question: Did you even TRY to activate the key?
Ok, thanks for the screen shot, had no idea how to find it. Got it now. Sorry for the attitude, been having a hard time latly.
It's fine... I just wanted to clear up the misconception that Itch has a hand in the product. It gives Itch a bad reputation when people blame them for things they don't have control of.
Happy I was able to help you redeem your Steam copy of Aven Colony.
