[TE4] Steam Keys are available !

Postby manutoo » 28 Apr 2021, 16:05

Hello,

to request your free Steam Key for TE4, go there : https://www.managames.com/Key_en.php?game=TE4&Steam=1 .

Warning : be sure to provide your correct Customer ID. If you have lost it, you'll have to request your License Key on the 1st day : https://www.managames.com/Key_en.php?Lost&game=TE4 ; and then on the following day, you'll be able to request your Steam key.

Notes :
- I will likely not update the Steam version as often as the Mana Games version, at least till the official release on Steam
- the Mac version is still not on Steam ; I'll try to add it around end of May (EDIT June 2nd: it's there)
- How to enter your Steam Key in Steam : https://support.steampowered.com/kb_art ... -tfbn-1352
- your Steam Key looks like this : XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

Werner,
unfortunately, the Linux market is extremely small and thus it doesn't justify the time & headaches of maintaining the Linux version, so it won't have a Linux version on Steam for a very long time (ie: not before the game will get less than a couple of update per year).
The Mac market is 4 or 5 times bigger than the Linux market, and I still don't plan to publish the MacOs version on Steam before the end of the month.

:( :cry: that makes me really sad because i was expecting that you release also for linux, i know the MacOs market is bigger 1% vs 5%, if it is just for testing reasons then we the inux users can help you if you want, because i think to build is not very hard with unreal engine.

Werner,
it's the Unity engine and for example it took me 2 hours to do the last Mac update because I updated to a new Unity version. There are also specific bugs to the Mac version which makes me lose time. I barely can afford this lost time & energy for the Mac version and I surely can't do the same with the Linux version... :fear:

Werner,
sure, I'll keep updating the Linux version on Managames.com, but as it'll be on a slower rhythm, it means most of the time it won't be possible to play online with people not having the Linux version.

ok thats not a big issue :), but i can play against other Linux players if i want.
Anyway Te4 work under Steam with proton (Proton is a tool for use with the Steam client which allows games which are exclusive to Windows to run on the Linux operating system. It uses Wine to facilitate this.) so as long as it works i can use steam to play against online opponents and play offline with the native version.
I still would prefer a linux steam version, because i think it would be good to also get posted on linux gaming sites, because TE4 is very good on gameplay and i think there is a interest who would buy it native but won't buy it when it is not native, but that's your decision.
Anyway thanks for the answers.

Hello, Manu.

Regarding this:
"- I will likely not update the Steam version as often as the Mana Games version, at least till the official release on Steam"

I'm assuming Steam updates will happen together (or almost) when the game is finally released, right? Do you think there is any reason for me to keep the Mana Games version installed? My HD space is low, so I try to see what I can delete :D

Thanks!

antimouse,
yes, once the game will be officially released on Steam (end of next week, normally), then I'll usually update both versions at the same time.
