Hi Casey. I'm unclear on how to use the key. Could you, or someone else, please let me know how to use it?

All good. Worked it out.

Thanks for Upgrade...and Icht.io users have a Steam Key too ?

Yes I  just sent an email to all those that bought it. I will shut the steam key offer down probably tomorrow. 


Hello, thanks for your initiative but I don't receive nothing (Key Steam)...sorry.

Can you email me at info.bruinbeargames.com

Hello, some "freeze" of the game in Gen middelton apparence tour with US AI with v 1.200 (?) .  the game ask me to activate AI for this Commandant but no icons disponible (begin tour 2).  Any solution ? thanks.

If This was turn 2 then there should have been a popup that the Allied AI stops at turn 2 and the play stops.  I should have been clearer about this.  Allied AI is only good for turn 1, its just a teaser for now.

Sorry for this, thanks for the great job and can't wait for the next step of this good game...sincerely, Philippe (from Belgium)

Will this game be available on Steam?

The game will be released on Steam when Allied Ai is completed. Anyone that bought game on ITCH.IO will receive keys.
