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.
Comment has been collapsed.
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Activated copies have not been revoked.
-.- had 2 keys left saved for GA sake...
So if i already activated the game? Does this affect me?
mine still in library
Wow, dick move Groupees, this isn't food, it should not have an expiration date.
I think it's more of dev than groupees.
What i bought several BE Mine 13 Bundles for GAs, and now they wont work?
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 :/
I wrote a ticket to Groupees, i dont care which fault it is, i bought them from Groupees. So i hope they will clear this.
then please update me(us) with their response ;)
they responded to me, but i guess its now obsolete
Just wrote one as well. Hopefully this situation can be addressed.
Pretty sure that's theft on the devs part. You've paid for a product, they can't just "steal it back".
go and fight in court over few dozens cents worth key ;p
Times how many people?
Looks like you're in luck
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.
Tested my key as well, it is now invalid, but i seem to recall that the money i paid was valid.
Yes and that is the point!
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.
Does that mean that every single nekro key available in some markets are invalid? (cause I bought one today and it didn't work) :(
if they resell groupees keys - yes
Damn... This way I won't be able to buy it ffs... :(
Nekro Steam Forum
Still no official announcement.
Guys please post in those thread, at least in the steam forum one.
Let's make them hear our voice.
I did. XD

Hey everyone, please email your code to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will promptly be replaced. Use REPLACEMENT KEY as the subject line. Sorry for the inconvience!
haha:D I told them in review how shitty developers they are months before
Well what you call shitty developers did manage to put a game up on Steam under Early Access and gather 100% positive reviews.. so shitty.
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.
Any link to that one?
he was trolling, but about DF screw-up look at forums at topuic about Spacebase DF-9 ;p
Well, BM13 is the only bundle from groupees that I own
And well, I have 8 unused keys from that one xd. But Nekro is not on the list - already used this one along with Miasmata and Fly'n
I really hope this is a mistake. It better be. It would be a really bad precedent for bundles.
Lol loged in groupees and found Eschalon: Book III and Heileen 3: New Horizons - Deluxe Edition in account dunno how i got these keys xD
I have used all my steam keys , had few unused gog links and i was able to activate them .
Ok it appears that i had one steam key and it was used :(
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
Heileen3 was bonus in same bundle.
problem solved ;p Like I said - I had no way to check it ;p Just remembered Eschalon was 1st bonus ;p
first thing I think of is "poor tremorgames", lol
Is this only nekro? I've already activated it ages ago but haven't used other keys for other games BM13 yet.
Game's forums No mention of what happened but looks like they're willing to fix it, so it seems anyway.
unless they are prepared to cope with the email flood I'm not entirely sure that's a good idea
interestingly enough they deleted every other post from the thread
"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.
Thank you, Email sent.
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.
Edited my post xD
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.
