Yeah, I know. I wasnt even expecting to be in the sale. But then I saw "The Pit" game and thought "Up to 75% off"!

I was then a bit disappointed after my initial surprise. Might as well not be included in the sale.

Like other indie games, this one will price drop quickly enough. Worth it's price though as it's a fun game.

I know, I know. The amount of money I spent on Indies lately was just a tad high, and there are SO many of them, that I would have loved a few % more off, even though I am rather interested in the game :)

Nope, you have to use their client. This bit me the hard way since I bought it for a friend. Probably won't use GMG again.

Very odd, yeah. They do somewhat spell out when it uses Steam on the game listing, but since I hadn't ordered before I didn't know. And they definitely didn't spell out that you need their DRM/client, and that you can't gift games. Not a fan, sadly.

But beyond that, great prices! If it's got Steam keys, fire away!

It's not really GMG's fault you didn't pay attention to the usually very noticeable "requires a free steam client" text, or more accurately, the lack of it.

I accidentally did the same thing twice before but the error is on me not GMG. Just pay more attention before hitting the buy button.

The OP has "Steam" listed next to the games which have a Steam key, as well as each page specifying if it is steam or not by having DRM: STEAM at the top of the pages for the games that are steam activated.

Sorry, but GMG deserves no blame in this case.

He probably didnt buy it in the current sale and it was a previous experience he had with GMG. No reason to jump on the guy. I didnt know either that not showing "DRM: STEAM" means that it doesnt have Steam codes. Now we know!

But yeah, no reason not to use GMG anymore, if you now know how to see which games have Steam and which dont.

To cover it all:
I bought it off the current sale, but off the Slick deals link and not this thread. I assumed Steam keys since they usually do offer them. It's the only game listing I went to, so I was not privy to how they list out the various DRMs.

The main issue here is the not being able to gift the game/have to use their client, not the steam issue. While I was on my phone, I still didn't see any (this requires Capsule) bits. I could've missed it, but it was not prominent.

I'm not trying to poopoo GMG, but it is an issue that came up. It sours me on their service. But this is a sale thread, so I think it's unfair for me to not focus on the sales instead.

What happens when you buy a game and later on it shows on Steam. Do the add the key to your account? I don't care too much if it's Steam or not, but I like to keep my games under one roof, especially when I buy a new PC.

Some do, some dont. Depends on the game/dev really. Some developers confirm that somewhere. If you are interested in a specific game, googling for a forum or reading comments on the Greenlight page usually yields a result.

I want to buy Kairo, but like I said I don't care about it too much. It's bigger problem when you buy a geme directly from the developer - with so many games you may forget that you bought them.

Our first release, War of the Human Tanks is a part of this Green Man Gaming Indie Weekend, currently at 75% discount. (already listed in the OP)

I'd like to use of this opportunity to talk to you about the game a little. So you can have better information when deciding if you want to take advantage of the weekend's discount.

War of the Human Tanks is a cross between Japanese style adventure games and hex based strategy games.

It is split into chapters that are formed like the episodes of a TV series, including opening and endings. Each chapter has a battle that you play in a gameplay that can be best described as a mix of battleship and chess (this analogy belongs to a reviewer, I liked it so much that I use it everywhere to describe the game). This battle is proceeded and followed by Japanese adventure style story sequences.

It is made of thirteen chapters and based on your performance you can get four different endings. You can also use your previous save while starting a new game to use the units you customized. Which reminds me that I forgot to mention that it allows you to upgrade and customize your "human tanks" in various ways between battles. there are lots of tank and upgrade models to unlock and use.

You can view trailers, screenshots and even play a free demo from our homepage at http://fruitbatfactory.com/humantanks/

I'll recommend cargo commander...even though I didn't actually like it.

Everything isn't quite as good as you want it to be. The action isn't quite there, the atmosphere isn't quite there, the collecting/rogue like elements? They miss the mark too.

It is unlikely that you will get into it and enjoy...but I can also really see how some people might. For the price? It is worth the punt.
