Only recieved NK code; not a Steam Key

Do I have to install NK's personal launcher to get the Steam key or
is this found under my account on this site somewhere?

    Hi acacia,

    TUG is available via Steam at the regular sales price on Steam or via the regular priced bundle still available through our Early Access widget (http://www.nerdkingdom.com/early-access/index.shtml), but the current 85% off sale on Humble is for the stand alone version of the game only, as indicated by the description and the Download for Windows being the only platform listed on the sales page.

    I hope this helped answer your question.
    -Dee.

    Curious what is the $16 USD increase in value for a steam key? Also I fully understand that the 85% off is a sale but I would love to understand a bit more of the choice to only offer the stand alone.

    The version including the Steam key is now on sale in the Humble Store for half of what the version without the key was on sale for 5 days ago. (See: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/tug_storefront) This is quite underhanded behavior. I have sent a support e-mail requesting either a refund or a key for my previous purchase!

    UPDATE: I just got an automated response saying that my support ticket won't be dealt with until after the Memorial Day weekend on the 26th. Rather convenient that they pulled the switcheroo after leaving the office. It's not even about the price, as it's extremely cheap to just buy the key version, it's the principle of the matter....

    I have to agree with you, Fargi... pretty weak all the way around on this one.

    Hey guys, after a lot of feedback on this topic, we did eventually add the choice of a Steam key to the end of our sale and Ino mentioned that anyone from the first sale round, who would really rather have a Steam key can request one. Just shoot us an e-mail at [email protected]
