Reports say it still works.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1012840/Moons_of_Madness/

You can get by playing:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1250870/Cyrano_Story/

You need to complete the game to get a key.

Store page says it's random chance, but in reality it's giving to everyone.

Edit: Now 5% chance, per https://steamcommunity.com/app/1250870/discussions/0/4540134453707466640/#c4540134453707673597

Could you elaborate on that? Are the keys limited (assuming you get one after you complete Cyrano)? I have to be at work in 5 hours so can't play anything for the next 16 hours

You can complete Cyrano Story in less than 5 minutes with the guide. At the end you have a chance to get a free key for Moons of Madness, the full game.

you can use the guide
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2064315186

at each of the 6 levels, you just need to enter the correct answer, and when the doctor's audio recording starts, you can cancel it
and go to a new level

From description of Cyrano Story: "Everyone who completes the final puzzle will have a random chance of receiving a free Steam key for Moons of Madness."

I was lucky to get the key on the first attempt, others went through the game 2 times, another friend went through the game 3 times...

the game can be completed in 5 minutes + the game has the achievement "pass the game 7 times", so you can just get all the achievements and get the key at the same time :)

Restarting game should give key if you don't get.
They seems to be having server issues.

This permanent ARG will require you to research images and clues online, and test your knowledge of historical culture to find relevant information and keywords to progress. Everyone who completes the final puzzle will have a random chance of receiving a free Steam key for Moons of Madness.

so it's not a guaranteed thing, eesh.

the game syncs with the server(Server IP 54.236.102.170) and the more people play, the more times you have to repeat the input of each command =((

I also just simply don't know what to do, you must compare the three and then type in what is similar between them ?
Where must you type? And what are the damn answers XD

"No" also doesn't do it for me.I had luck one time, but after the following voice it didn't go on, so I had to restart again. But it always stops at this point...

Well, congrats. I've finally entered "sleep", but I can't even finish the first level, I must have typed "no" (obviously because it's shorter) a hundred time already.

Same for me. The only thing I get is a blurry screen for about 2 seconds - and only sometimes when I type "Yes".

The game doesn't work properly at all. I type over and over the answers from the guide, yet it's so random whether or not anything seems to happen.

you need to repeat and repeat... and repeat entering the command...

the game syncs with the server, so the more people play the game , the more the server crashes...

same. how can one game so simple be so broken?

There are a lot of people playing the game at the moment, so you have to type the answers numerous times to get the "being" to reply to you. Just keep typing the replies listed in the guide (posted above) until a voice replies and you get an audio recording. "X" out of the audio recording and move on to the next puzzle.

Once you finish the last puzzle, you'll get a screen that says "Your Steam Key" with a Steam key for Moons of Madness listed under it.

And thanks, Madjoki, it worked fine for me once I figured out that I had to keep typing the replies over and over to get them to register with the game's server.

Wow this game is terrible. I did get the key though so thank you very much for posting about this as I did want Moons of Madness.

To those struggling like I was, you just have to keep typing over and over dozens of times the answers in the guide that is posted above and eventually the game does move forward.

Good grief, this is like trying to play Planet Zoo Franchise mode. I've answered 'No' to the question of 'Are You Alone' roughly 655 times now and still nothing. At least Ctrl+V works, because I'm not typing Photon Sphere 600 times.

Sane will not be your state of mind by the end of the first puzzle. Not with these servers...

Edit: Finally. Got the key pretty much straight away.

what a fucking stupid way to make a game. this COULD actually be a really intriguing game, but if its bound to a server that can get overloaded and make you think what youre typing is wrong, it completely destroys any enjoyment that could be found in it.

+1. Requiring being online for any kind of solo game is stupid and toxic. Not to mention the privacy implications. Think Hitman for instance.

Hey there! You are not insane, we just got a message from Google that there was a lot of request going on right now. We are working with them to increase the capacity on their side. Should be resolve shortly. :) Sorry for that.

I don't understand why the game needs to contact external servers to check each input you type when the answers are static/fixed (as shown in the 100% achievements guide)...

only kept at it because ive been wanting to play moons of madness for a long time.

SEEMS to be fixed now (for me at least), and yes received a key so they are still giving them out, and the game 'can' be completed, just... phew... stick with it i guess, but damn..
