That was fun. Took me 30 minutes in total

I'm glad you liked it! My next one will be much longer (shameless plug, the prototype is already longer: https://shadowglass.itch.io/guildmaster).


You state the following on the game page above:

!!!Free Steam Key!!!

Yet there is no information on how to acquire/redeem such key.  Please provide this information to your audience.


Probably have to pay more than (0) to get a Steam Key.


Hmm, I remember there being an option to allow Steam keys even though it's free. Try going here and see if this will repopulate: https://itch.io/docs/buying/already-bought

Meanwhile, I'll look into what happened.

I'm inclined to believe there's no Steam key option available for those who obtained the game during the free promotion, likely by design.  I would appreciate an update to the main game page to let people know that the Steam key is only available to those who paid for the game.  Thanks so much for the temporary free giveaway and I look forward to my playthrough :)


Thanks for the info and for checking out my game. I've got a inquiry going on to see if I'm crazy or not. :P
