Do those of us with a Desura copy get Steam keys now?

To all of you getting the "Activation Failed":
Right click on the game in your desura library, choose "View CD Key", and use that one to activate.
If you got the game as a desura key, IT IS NOT THE SAME ONE.

That has nothing to do with it, you can't even get that far. Something about an ECUS English 2012 file can't be found whenthe patcher is running.

Updater only downloads an update and it does not install it, it fails to install the update.
If you decide to not update your game you need to download some other files manually, since the updater dont even download and install those files you need.
to be fair, i was not expecting much since i had it as an extra in an bundle, but it does not even start.

Same problem with the updater. However, without it, I'm able to play the game.
Then, the interface crashes a lot. And how can I blame anybody, if I'm not playing the latest version

Really poor. No thought to design, clunky interface, horribly generic and bland look to everything, double activation and an annoying update process (that failed three times for me). How is this game worth 14 when The Political Machine (which is almost identical, but does hurt my eyes) costs 1.39? Worst game I've got on Desura. Yuck.

And the uninstaller failed with a stub error. Good grief...

The game installs, then has an update, downloads the update, and then proceeds to try installing said update only to fail.

Can't play the game then.
