I hope you didn't save it for later activation or trading.

Will this be new trend?

I usually activate instantly and don't trade, so it doesn't affect me, but still I don't like it.

Can we get a link?

Also, thankfully I just gave away my last one xD
That's really shady. First Double Fine, now Groupees too? What's with everyone fucking over their customers?

If you have BM13 just activate your key on Steam and it will show as invalid. (Used keys too)

Mmh why do you say used keys too ? Did people get their used key revoked from their Steam library ?

He means you can try to do it with a used key as well. They won't show the "already in use" but instead the "invalid" error. Activated copies have not been revoked.

nothing you can do :/ Dev revoked keys, keys will not work. I'm in the same situation - bought 5 bundles, activated 1 key, gave away 2 and now I got 2 invalid keys left :/

Pretty sure that's theft on the devs part. You've paid for a product, they can't just "steal it back".

As bad as this sounds I think we should wait for something official. Maybe it's just a mistake.

It better be a bug or a mistake, cause if i pay for a product and somebody takes it away from me, it's called theft.

I just tested one key on other Account and its an invalid key now, so keys are really revoked.

Glad I activated mine right away. Should be okay. But still, that seems shady. I thought "keys never expire." This wouldn't be my favorite trend if more follow.

I don't think it's groupees's fault,but they have responsibility to give the keys back at least.

Why the heck keys that are given is useless anymore?It's just weird and doesn't make any sense,at all.
Did they have an expiration date?

Did anyone recall something like this happened before?

There was no mention about expiring keys, so making them expire is just plain illegal.

I can't believe a software house would put itself in that kind of legal danger, that's why i still hope it's a mistake.

Maybe the Nekro devs are just trying to be nice guys and deflect from the Double Fine mess by 1UP-ing them.

I don't remeber about Heileen (on mobile internet now, cannot check), but Eschalon: Book III was a bonus in bundle. So it's possible that you bought a bundle before bonus got unlocked so that's wy you missed it ;p

Explanation here

"We were hacked and had a bunch of keys stolen last night, and we had to invalidate them. I know this is a pain in the ♥♥♥ but I'll do whatever I have to to make it right. Sorry again, everyone. :)"

Must of lost a lot of keys if they were willing to kill possibly as many as 13,000 keys, could have been worse though, they could have voided the used keys too.

I'm glad I used my key already, since I usually wait months before accumulating a bunch of games to activate at once. Regardless, I hope that this is just a mistake.

Could we update the OP so we don't have a witch hunt here?

The developer has posted their reasoning and if you believe it, then it's totally understandable.

Hey guys, before you jump the gun. I can tell you right now. We didn't do anything to anyone's keys at Groupees. It seems likely that what Peroxide is saying is probably right. We are looking into it now and will figure out exactly what happened and how to remedy the situation. Thanks for your patience while we sort this out.
