I'd rather support Matrix/Slitherine directly - if I buy on the site can I use the key to register and play on Steam?

Thanks zakblood. I'd like to buy here, register on steam, and use the family share feature to try to get family members interested or hooked on this game in the endless hours when I am not on Steam. Is this eligible for the steam family share? Thanks

I was not aaware this culd be done. Is it possible to register on Steam once I have registered on Matrix, or do I need to purchase another game for Steam?

No you don't have to buy the game twice. When your register your Matrix/Slitherine bought game you can generate a steam key for it on the website in the user section.

I want to be certain I understand, I have already registered my game on Slitherine/Matrix, so I can return and get a new key in the user section?

Btw, which user section are you referring to, the Sitherine/Matrix website or the Steam website?

For me, I've already supported Matrix by buying almost all its games, almost all of them at full price.

The advantage of a Steam purchase is you can get a refund with less than two hours play time or several days, which to me is a significant bonus - just in case. I think I will like this game either way, especially with the editor (which I need to find out more about; i.e., ease of use, etc.), but buying full price again, I need to be sure.

Okay, based on this thread I am buying immediately. And am quite excited about it. Way to go devs!!

Well after reading this thread, I too have have bought via Slitherine, pasted the Steam Key over to take advantage of the workshop mods and am now happily ploughing through the tutorial. I support any devs willing to devote time, money and effort into creating ancients games like this. Not sure If I`ll be able to put down FoG II though, might just need to sacrifice some sleep to resolve that :)
