johns.game's developer illegally revoked legitimately purchased keys for the game today (24 November 2016)

Post by Pedro-NF » 25 Nov 2017, 15:40

I bought two copies of the DIG Super Bundle 104 in 27 May 2017, which included the game johns.game. I activated one of the game's key on this account and used the other key in one of our weekly giveaways. Today (24 November 2017), both keys were revoked by the game's developer. I already contacted the giveaway winner and explained what happened.

Since the game's developer has been deleting topics and posts about this on the game's discussions forum, please post on this thread if you also had your key(s) for johns.game revoked, so we can further document this issue and take proper action later if necessary.

I don't want this game anymore - what I want is, at the very least, to get this guy off Steam.

If you haven't done that yet, please report these developers to Valve. There is no option to file this kind of report via the developers' profiles, so follow the procedure below:

1 - Go to the game's store page and click on the flag icon below "View discussions".

2 - Select the Legal Violation option from the list.

3 - Write a description of what happened. Here's what I wrote:

"On 24 November 2017, the developers of this game revoked ALL keys they ever sold for the game, harming tens of thousands of people who had legitimately purchased them. The attitude of the developers about this has been mainly to delete posts and topics from the game's discussions and ban people who called them out on what they did. I expect Valve to take severe measures to stop these devs from scamming people ever again."

You should be aware that, even if you receive a new key from the developers, when the original key was revoked YOUR STEAM ACCOUNT WAS PERMANENTLY FLAGGED, as if you had purchased that key illegally.
