So in early September, I purchased the Humble Bundle that included Gratuitous Space Battles. Today, I finally play it (I had it installed a while ago because I hopingly thought I would have time to play it [hahahahahaha]).
Since I had also used the Steam key that I received from the bundle, I was running the game through Steam, so it gave me a pop-up notification that I will have to enter in a serial number (that Steam somehow knew) in-game for verification. Went to find it, found it in the Online section of the game.
I pasted in the key both with and without dashes (in case that would have made a difference) but both times it gave me a “Key Invalid” message.
I don’t know why this is happening since this is the first I’ve seen this key, and there are no indications of any security breaches on my computer or Steam account, but I was just curious to see the online play. If I’m remembering correctly from GSB’s newsletters before the game even came out (I’ve been watching you guys for a while), there’s a spectator feature? Maybe that’s a different game, but I’ve been wanting to do even that.
I will gladly post/PM the key I was supplied by Steam if a staff member asks me for it.
Thanks and cheers from Albuquerque, NM
