I'd like to quote the official stance on the matter of adding games bought outside Caravel to your forum account to avoid any confusion in the future:

After 2015, Caravel will not be able to support manually linking up foreign orders to user accounts on the Caravel Forum..

Because it's already 2016 (or beyond) the official and unofficial stance is that this is impossible. We'll have to turn down any request to add games to your account, I am sorry.

You can find more details about it in the newsletter from December 2015.

If you are aware of any places on the forum where mrimer, Schik, me, or any other moderator or caravel staff member says it's possible, please send me a link and I'll modify the post to avoid any future confusion.

Hello, skell.

As I see in newsletter, linked by you, it was planned to add Steam keys for "other distribution channels". I am long-time fan of DROD, as I played some free version in the start of 2000s (Architect Edition? I cannot remember), so got pack as soon as could afford it, from Indie Gala... quite a long ago already. No keys since that. Well, I am happy to have offline versions, but Steam I like better. :)

I contacted Gala recently, and they confirmed that they awaited the keys... and actually they awaiting is quite long too.

Can you cast the light over this issue? Will be the Steam keys on the Indie Gala, and if yes - then when?

As you said, I don't believe we have Steam keys set up for Indie Gala. I'll double-check on the status of that.

Thank you, mrimer. What is the result of checking?

They don't have them up yet, but it should happen in the next couple days.
