CAN YOU SEE IT? In the first game of The Working Parts, a lone frog descends into the depths of a flooded forest, not yet knowing the full extent of its tragedy. To survive in a brutal, oxygen-obsessed ecosystem, you must help it see the patterns and hidden truths that make up the system - horrible as they may be. Kotaku says: "They Breathe is proof that you don't need realistic graphics or complicated gameplay to tell a horrifying story."

Also available on Steam.

I got the game through IndieRoyale Winter Bundle, there isn't a Steam code on Indie Royale bundle page and when I try to redeem it on Desura, I receive this error,

"The game you have redeemed does not allow you to request additional keys."

How could I get a Steam code?

Is there any particular reward for saving all the frogs? I saved some of them, others ended up being jellyfish bait. All I got is that you meet all the frogs you rescued at the surface upon finishing the game. Is there more to it if you save ALL of them?

In the Desura version it is only for peace of mind / OCD. We added a small bonus in the new Steam version though, as well as an achievement.
