Hi, folks.

I see Impulse has this on sale for $11.24. If I purchase it from them, can I use the key to activate it on Steam?

Thanks!

As far as i have read it. ( infos may not be correct )
Only keys from other retailers which where bought before the steam release can be activated on steam.

So if you buy it now on imulse, you will only be able to get that version.

Yes that is correct, they are not doing any more key transfers.
So beta keys only will activate on steam.

It was a bonus perk for those who purchased during beta when Steam was not selling it.

Get it on Steam or wait for a Steam sale.

Just rightclick on the file in Impulse (game select list) and select Registration Information. Copy and paste into Steam and done.

My serial in Impulse was not the same as what I registered in Impulse. This is because the awesome Minmax team generated new keys to work with Steam. Try it and see.

Just to clarify -- you can do that and when you play it in Steam you still have access to all the steam achievements and stuff? If so I am on it.

It functions exactly as if you had purchased the game directly from Steam.

Best of all, my save progress from the Impulse beta directly carried over to my Steam game. :D

Hmm maybe Impulse got some extra Steam activated keys but there is no guarantee it will always work for everybody who buys from Impulse in the future

"Officially" the service is no longer offered.

I wish I had known about this yesterday :(

Oh, well. It's still worth $15!

Cheapest I've seen SPAZ has been to use the code HAPPY-PAYDA-YSITE (20% off) and the $5 credit with brings it to $6 via this link. :)

did you play it before 8/16/11?

If so then try the key without dashes

If you never launched it during beta then you are out of luck

I am not sure how that gmg version works, but in Impulse you can rightclick to get the registration key, which was different from the key in my email. Does the gmg version have anything like that?

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can confirm that Impulse keys also work for Steam.
15 minutes ago I bought my SPAZ from Impulse. Installed their client, went to the My Games tab and clicked view registration. It came up with a key which I entered in steam, steam redeem it as Space Pirates And Zombies Retail (impulse). So get it before the sale ends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
