IGW : How to use your digital game codes

If you requested a digital game during registration, you should have received your code on October 17th.  These donations can be used as prizes for attendees or downloaded to an account.

How to use a Steam activation code:

The Steam activation codes for 12 Orbits and simian.interface+ require a Steam account. Steam is a free game platform. You can download Steam here (http://store.steampowered.com/). Click the green Install Steam button to download this platform.

 

Once you have Steam downloaded to your device and your free account set up you can activate your code by choosing Games >> Activate a Product on Steam.

This brings up the product activation box >> click next >> click agree >> enter the activation code.

How to add 12 Orbits to your Itch.io account:

If you already have an itch.io account you can add the activation code into the browser search and attach it to your account. If you don’t have an account, go to the itch.io website at https://itch.io/ and create one. You can then cut and paste your game codes into the browser search.

Click link my account.

You can choose the file type that you wish to download.

Thanks for participating in International Games Week 2017!

  1. One question at our library is, since we can’t share steam accounts across all of our computers, do the steam codes have a one-time use or are they able to be used more than once for all the library systems?

      I only speak for 12 orbits:

      If you need more keys for your library, even beyond the games week, just contact me through email. I like libraries 🙂

      Also, if you get the game from itch.io, you will be able to install it to multiple computers.
