Was there an email I missed? I saw the Beta come up a few weeks ago and after checking what my initial pledge was for, and after discussing with some friends, came to the conclusion that we didn't "pay for" the Beta. We had a chuckle about how the initial estimate of completion late 2013 is a bit far off (and the frustration to see all the mobile/side releases in the meantime). Fast forward to tonight and I see the Beta is on sale for $15.
WTF? I chucked in my hard-earned cash three years ago and now it's up on steam for the same amount? Do I even get a steam version or am I locked out of online multiplayer with my DRM-free version?
Fortunately, before making this post I had a look and this forum has links to a humble-bundle resender. Turns out I do have Steam access.... so why was I just sitting here waiting for it to make full release?
While it has been a long wait, I've taken comfort from both the ongoing progress emails and the no-bullshit approach to providing patches (now called DLC) and even bonuses like releasing older versions of carmageddon.
If only I realised I had current access to those versions!
Was this info about the humble bundle keys put out in the kickstarter mailout?
Could the Stainless team consider emailing a reminder before ignorant users such as myself spend extra dosh on steam for something we've already paid for?
And most concerning/depressing, is the $15 sale essentially the same deal as what I paid for mid 2012?
