Failed to contact key server

Just bought the game and am unable to play it, I get the above message every time I try to launch it.

Tried all the usual things like renaming clientregistry.blob and temporarily disabling firewall.

Anyone have any ideas?

Same problem here, maybe the key server is a bit stressed at the moment.

Same here. I think it's like what happened to Pray when it was on sale, all the CD-Keys sold out
Also there is another thread about this issue here, I checked the times and it appears your thread was first

I'd create a support ticket demanding a key or my money back but the freakin support registration links are broke.
Moderators take note!
This is small time, incompetent and embarrassing on Steams account

I'm sure is just a shortage of keys
I got a copy and it doesn't work, hopefully this gets fixed soon..

Demand? It does happen a few times where some keys fail to register. Steam/Codemaster will get on it - but demanding?

Sometimes an offer can be too successful - even on Steam for Valve...

I bought my copy several hours after it went on sale and I got my CD key. It installed and automatically logged me into GFWL without problems. So it must just be that they sold out on CD keys and will get new ones soon.

Who are you to critique my wording?
If you like to not get something in return for your money that's your business.
If the word demand is too harsh for you, too bad.

Hey Guys. We have temporarily run out of keys for FUEL and more have been requested. You can still purchase the pack and play the other games. When we have more keys, FUEL will unlock for you automatically. Our apologies!

Selling games without giving out the keys is weak.
Putting a game on promotion and for special sale without even having keys is just a very bad joke.
