Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Amnesia: The Dark Descent Steam activation?

By DH125 posted 21st Jun 2012

So, I'm new here, and I just bought Super Meat Boy and Amnesia because of the huge offer this website is giving! So I just went ahead and activated Super Meat Boy on steam and everything worked, but when I tried to activate Amnesia it said it was invalid, and I looked up on the serial the site gave me and it looked incomplete, I went ahead and download it from the website anyway but is there any way of activating it on steam so it would be easier?

no sorry you can't activate it on steam

nope, it will not work, check steams website to find out what games you can activate, but you can always create a shortcut through steam.

Thanks for the fast replies! It's a shame I can't get it on steam but yeah like Zoppy said I can always create a shortcut, thanks again for the attention. Cheers

You can also check if a game can be activated on Steam by looking at the product page on Gamersgate. Beside DRM it'll show if it's Steamworks or not.

Yeah, sadly you can't. Perhaps in the future who knows.

you can install in the normal way then add it to your steam library as a non steam game if you require.

Yeah it's a shame, but thank you guys for the help. I doubt they do it in the future but well the important thing is to get the game, it's just a bonus let's call it that.

@Zoppy: That article ( is hopelessly outdated and incomplete. Just an example - the last Humble Bundle listed there is #3...
