Steam Sale Runs out of Risen Keys

The Deep Silver Forums have an apology to users inconvenienced when their server ran out of authentication keys for Risen, as Steam's weekend sale for Piranha Bytes' RPG caused demand that outstripped their supply of serial numbers (perhaps due to a let-down by their bit supplier). This thread has the outrage from impacted users, who have been placated to some degree by the promise they will be able to activate their game today. Thanks Destructoid.

I dont think they expected that level of success, as Risen had a mild reception at best when it was first released. Turns out it's a really good game, and worthy successor to Gothic series (instead of the craptastic Gothic 4). The word of mouth has done some good to it i guess, as most people who completed found it very enjoyable (as i did, although it was just a bit too short).
As in Gothic 2, you have to play very finely in order to become a mage, and as in Gothic 2, it's not a matter of basic "good vs evil", and the scenario is rather good i'd say. Only downside is the characters are mostly forgettable apart for the Inquisitor who's a bit more multi faceted. The levelling and skill system are very good and very well done for immersion (same kind as earlier Gothic games).
