Project Zomboid is an open-ended zombie-infested sandbox. It asks one simple question – how will you die? Whether surviving in Knox County free-roam or controlling Indie Stone mascot Baldspot in his quest to save his injured wife Kate – death is always a certainty. Quite how long you manage to put it off is another matter…

Only stable versions make it to Desura -- updating it takes quite a bit more coordination than Steam, making it a PITA to hotfix.

So, if you want to play the hottest, buggiest version: Steam. If you don't believe it, as it is clear by your reply down the list then, well. I don't know what to tell you.

To clarify, the Steam key (for Desura users) is available here: Desura.com

I wouldn't call it a scam. I think it's just mind bogglingly poor customer support and a serious lack of integrity on indistones part. If they were smart they would treat everyone who's purchased this game with respect and gratitude regardless of where we bought it. After all, we believed in their vision enough to plunk down cash that could be spent elsewhere for an unfinished game. The very least I expected was to get the current build. I'm so disappointed in them.

Hello Katfan, I asked the very same question. I've been told several things. I was told by one of the forum administrators at indiestone to change over to Steam if I want an update. I said I didn't want to use steam and I asked way push me toward steam. I was told basically that Desura is too difficult to make updates to and that the updates have to be near perfect. I found that hard to believe because indie studios don't have near the budget to do perfect quality control. Since Desura helps mostly indie game studios it just didn't make sense to me. I asked Desura support if this was true. Was their system difficult to update or change versions? They explained that it absolutely was not difficult to update versions of a game and that it did not have to be a rock solid version. Studios are allowed to change what they wanted, when they wanted. She explained further that they were just a host and that the studios that publish on Desura are left to do whatever they want.
After all the checking I did into this matter the only thing I’m sure of is that I have Zomboid Version 26 when I should have version 28. Also I will continue doing business with Desura because they have been attentive and courteous. I wish I could say the same for Indiestone.

You should consider updating to Steam.

Then you can follow this in order to unlock version 28:

So why do the devs keep referring to Desura on the DL page?

Btw, where's my steam Key?
