I am trying to get this game for my nephew. I bought it, got my Humble URL and clicked the link, then went to the Humble Bundle and clicked on the "button to redeem on Stream" ( i have a Stream account) and the stream won;t download and I am soooooo confused and my nephew is getting impatient! lol. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong and how I can get this game PLEASE! LOL. I am downloading it on my computer - please tell me that I can get it to his ipad as well. I appreciate any help!

    Do you have the game code for steam? If so, you can go Steam>>"Games">>"Activate a product on steam..."
    If you don't have the codes then you will have to wait for someone more familiar with the humble bundle.

    The humble bundle provides you with a Steam key. Just claim the key to Steam and you should be able to download it.

    As an uncle of 4 nephews...I can feel your pain.

  • I did claim the Stream Key - but when i am on the page where it says Play Now - it says "TUG is not available on your current platform." but I have claimed it on stream. It asks me for an Product Activation code - but i don't know where to find it???? Thank you for understanding....i have been trying this for 3 days.
  • i don;t think I have a game code for it....how do I get it???? thank you for your help!

    What operating system are you using steam on?
  • I am running MAC OS X version 10.6.8

    So it is in your games library? But you can't play it because it wants another activation code when you try to run it? Explain more precisely please

    TUG is only on Windows. :(
  • Ok - so since MacBook Pro and the mini Ipad don't run Windows, I can't get TUG to download and play until they make it accessible to the operating system for Macs -

    Short answer: No, not without doing techie stuff. (And maybe not even then.)

    Techie answer:
    The part I know, anyway: running TUG requires two major things:
    1) Windows (Steam tells you which versions)
    2) A video card that supports DirectX 11

    For #1: You can run Windows on a MacBook Pro: It requires the Boot Camp software, and a purchased copy of Windows.
    For #2: I don't know whether the any of MacBook Pros have DirectX 11 compatible video cards. (I'm sure that's possible to figure that out, though, with some knowledge and effort.)
