Shadowrun Returns Keys Inbound

A Kickstarter update for Shadowrun Returns has word from Harebrained Schemes that beginning today Steam keys are being sent to backers and preorder customers to ensure they are set for the Windows and OS X launch of the tactical RPG follow-up on July 25th. Here's the plan:

Starting today, emails containing Shadowrun Returns Steam keys are going out to all Backers and HBS website Pre-order customers. This will help ensure that everyone has their keys in time for the launch on July 25.

Please note that the keys will not unlock the game until it is released on July 25th. Once we flip the switch, you’ll be able to begin the download from Steam and play the game when it completes. More specifics on loading your Steam key will be included in the email we send you.

Also on July 25, your DRM-free version of the game and the digital rewards for your pledge level will be available via your HBS Account. Go to https://account.harebrained-schemes.com/ to download them on launch day.

As a reminder, your physical rewards will begin shipping in the first week of August. Delivery dates are determined by geographic location.

I was a backer from day 1, but still haven't gotten my key yet, and a coworker who had just preordered his a few weeks ago has already gotten the key.

That irks me.

Relax. They do it in chunks to prevent their support people from getting swamped, and the selection is fairly random. I was one of the very first people to back this, and I didn't get the link to the page where you choose your physical goodies until the last day they were sending them out.

I've not gotten anything yet, and I backed early.

Why do they send keys beforehand anyway...this is all very strange and confusing to me...
Because they are the kickstarters and they have email addys for all of them?

I hear there's a lot of video out (of people creating content and testing it), but I'm trying to avoid it, for spoilers...

So when can those who did not back or preorder buy this??? Can we do it on the 25th or do we have to wait a few days/weeks/months/years? Why do they send keys beforehand anyway...this is all very strange and confusing to me...

Looks like they pulled the (physical) CE's from here and now suggest steam preorders.

Should go live on the 25th.

Looking forward to my $125 physical package!

Was looking over the weekend and was disappointed to discover this is next week, and not this week...

REALLY looking forward to it...

Yeah, got mine and it works. Too bad they weren't doing preloads - even it was just a day or two ahead.
