Pride of Nations, Gamersgate, and Steam keys

Mon Apr 27, 2015 5:33 pm

I own my copies Pride of Nations through Gamersgate.

I would really prefer to have them on Steam because Steam has much more bandwidth than Gamersgate (translation: Steam downloads tend to be fairly quick, Gamersgate downloads are sometimes glacially slow).

I have discussed this issue with Customer support at Matrix, and they aren't able to issue Steam keys to individual owners of the game.

Is there any chance that Ageod could arrange for Steam keys for all of its Steam-enabled games to be issued to Gamersgate? They aren't a wholly-owned subsidiary of Paradox anymore, so it's not like you would be supporting a competitor.

Many people prefer to have their games on Steam, but not to buy them from Steam (especially after this recent nonsense about charging for workshop mods). Owning Steam games independently from Steam provides an extra layer of protection in case Steam goes belly up and your game library vanishes. And having a game in your Steam library protects you from having the provider of the game go belly up as well.

Not to hijack the thread, but I bought the game through Steam and I wondered if I could get a copy of the AGEOD install because I dont want Steam!!!!

The best way is to buy at Ageod, it gives you an extra Steam key. Plus buying at Ageod is supporting us the most.

I'll discuss with the Slitherine Helpdesk, I really don't know how things can turn out on these matters.

I am not expecting a positive outcome, but I appreciate your looking into it.

I would welcome a Steam key for my Gamersgate version of Pride of Nations as well

Slitherine Support is trying to get from Gamersgate the list of customers who bought PON. Baring that, they can't provide links based on screenshots or invoices, because there is potentially ten of thousands of customers from GG. At a time Paradox sold PON at a huge discount and even if most of the buyers never played the game a lot, there is a lot of people on Steam who possess PON.

So until a GG answer, operations are on hold on that, dixit Support.
