Yep, revoked. It sounds like the dev is just completely derping around... oh well. Easy come, easy go.
My theory: This game is in the new Lazy Guys Bundle. If Lazy Guys Bundle has a stipulation that the game not be given away free for a certain period of time, and this dev made this massive giveaway because he didn't read or didn't understand the contract to which he agreed, perhaps LGB was threatening to withhold his payment from the bundle due to breach of contract. So the dev invalidated all of the given-away keys to make things right with LGB, and wanted to postpone the giveaway until later, with even more keys, to try to make things right with the giveaway creator.
Yeah , I could not to make the giveaway , but he didn't tell me that in time.
He told me that when we started the giveaway and promoted it and like 20k cd keys got taken...
As well after that he removed me from steam , I had an agreement with him as well.
He asked me if I can pause that or If I can change the name of the game so the studio won't be able to know that.
Im really sorry for all of this I guess..
Sounds like you didn't do anything wrong here. Seems like the dev made a bad decision and was stuck between violating his deal with you or violating his deal with LGB, and he chose to violate with you. :-/
Sounds about right. It's a rather shady practice though, the dev should have read his contract before
giving a massive amount of keys to someone else.
The fact that Steam simply let's a developer revoke keys as they see fit is also rather scary.
They probably need the option for credit card fraud and the like, but at least it they should require
some good reason for such massive measure. Just because the free keys are problem for the
developers dealings with a bundle site should not be a reason for approval.
if i was Lazy guys id stay clear of it now as their customer base is mostly us and we are gonna go out of our way to not buy the game now.
lol rly all revoked..
I got mine removed from steam library just now! Someone else? Why this?
Ok, all revoked, what a mess!
So all keys are going to be revoked, but they still didn't cancel the giveaway? How nice of them. At least they can blame everything on the dev now..
I wouldn't mind the key being invalid if I hadn't activated it yet but now my account is flagged and I have to wait 2 extra hours for every game when I farm cards FOREVER. I never issued a refund for that exact reason.
What! Now I know why my account is restricted! I never issued a refund but I got a game revoked some time ago. Not my fault btw. Incredible.
Thanks for the info :(
Wait what, is that true? Can I ask your source?
Hmm can we trust him?
It matches my own experience but I can tell for sure tomorrow once I've tried it out. But somebody reminded me that you can idle multiple games up to 2 hours and then seperatly with Idle Master so it's not as bad as I originally thought.
Yeah not bad but take more time for sure, I using that method too even if my account is not restricted because after the first 0.5hour, all 1st cards from all game idle drop at once, then each 0.5 hour until finish, thats really great.
yes pls confirm here tomorrow, I don't have enough games have trading cards left to check this time.
It's weird I just continued idling a game that I was idling before they revoked Drunken Wizards and just got my last card drop although the timer was just at 1,5 hours. But I'll check with a fresh game too to be sure.
Maybe its a good sign, yes looking forward to hearing from you.
Currently idling a fresh game: Kidnapped (started idling after Drunken Wizards was removed)
First card drop @ 0,5 hour
Second card drop @ 1 hour
Third card drop @ 1,5 hours
I had a "beta" key revoked in the same wrong way some time ago but it (fortunately) didn't cause a 2h block, so I don't think that is going to happen
That would be awesome. I mean of course it's not the end of the world if it happens but here's to hoping.
wtf.. hope that's not true. Glad I didn't get one.
Yep, sucks! :/
I suggest you to check out ASF or idle master, to idle many games simultaneously up to 2 hours and then individually :)
Yea I'm using Idle Master but it was nice not to have this restriction anymore. Because I'm pretty sure after they introduced refunds everybody briefly had those extra 2 hours until they changed it so only people who refund get it. But you're right. I completly forgot about that feature since I turned if off ~ 6 month ago when it started working normally again. Thanks for reminding me :)
Read this to know the story about the keys
Just came here to post this, haha.
Greedy dev revoked all the keys to put them in a bundle. XD
Hello guys , Sorry for that.
Please read this! : http://steamcommunity.com/groups/DeductionsReviewClub#announcements/detail/798641222253726817
I hope the dev change his mind and give the keys back, isnt good being scammed by some dev
Just curious ... is there absolutely no way to stop the giveaway?
File a support ticket to gleam maybe?
I infer you're the poster of the linked post. Assuming I'm correct about that: Hey, stuff happens. It looks like this wasn't your fault.
Hey, don't want to be a douche, but are you totally sure stopping a giveaway isn't possible? It does look like Gleam has that feature, so if he asked you to stop it you could have done so.
I wouldn't mind getting the key revoked but having my account flagged for it with no fault of my own really, really sucks.
That will make idling cards extremly annoying.
i forgot about the cards, god
I normally never instantly activate those gleem freebies but save them in a word file and activate them in bulk.
Don't know why I did today. Pretty annoyed right now :(
Me too. And the steam community was down when i tried to complete some gleam tasks, GabeN was sending me a warning ;-;

Hey bro ,
I didn't earn any 2000$ out of that.
I just tried to explain him that I lost a lot from that.
I though this will make a bad rep for me which it did so..
Thats as well one of the reasons why I removed that , and anyway :
If I will make 100,000$ from this giveaway , will you actually care? I giving here free steam keys for the community ,
Thats not something bad? but anyway , I didn't earn any 2000$ :D
I hope you can understand me because I have really bad english and trying to write best as I can.
Yeah Im sorry about that , I shouldn't do it but I was so mad so I just said stuff in the chat that I shouldn't..
Hope you can understand me ^_^
Revoked as well, but don't mind. Good luck to the dev and hope he gets his shit straightened out. Too little support for devs and too many predators just waiting to take advantage.
Game got revoked while I was playing it lol.
Hehe, don't close the game and you should be able to play it still.
The question's just, is it even worth playing?
Hard to say as there were only 2 players. Doesn't seem to have dedicated servers, just p2p.
Game felt a bit 'clumsy' though. Not sure if it's a feature or just poor developing :P
One of the complaints was that it was a multi-player game and no one was playing it. They have probably blown many chances to add more people now.
I got duplicate key :/
About the 2000$ , I didn't get any 2000$ ^_^
I just tried to show him that I going to lose big out of that.
I thought people will be mad on me because this things is under me , I know thats not my fault but I had to do something!
If he wants to boost sales he should just remove the game from steam and only give keys to lazyguys...not like hes going to get many buyers in the future anyways.
New negative game reviews are starting to flow in now.
Maybe he could re-activate the keys after the bundle is over?
Or at least talk with Steam/Valve and get them to remove the account/card restrictions from all affected Steam accounts.
what "account/card restrictions" you talking about?
Any account with refunds or revoked keys has to wait longer for card drops.
Not for revoked games?
This is my third strike and I did not experience any difference in time between the card drops afaik! :)
Duped key. :c
