Rimworld Steam Key Fraud Halted

Ludeon Studios announces that they've been forced to stop giving Steam keys to those who buy the DRM-free edition of Rimworld from their site, though the game is still available for purchase directly from Steam (thanks Tessier). Word is their generosity was being rewarded by thousands of dollars in chargebacks due to fraud:
If you bought before today, you can still get a key. However, Iíve been forced to stop offering Steam keys for those who buy today and in the future. Weíve been getting hammered by fraudsters who are obviously more experienced at this than I. Shutting it down for now is the only way to avoid thousands of dollars in chargeback fees and lost sales. Itís time to take a breather, because I canít fight this Ďliveí.

The game is, of course, for sale on Steam if you want a Steam copy. Buying from our site will give DRM-free copies as before, but no Steam key.

All the stolen keys are being cancelled, and should be deactivated before they can be sold (or soon after, depending on how fast Valve does it). The funds they were stolen with are being returned to their rightful owners. If you donít want to get ripped off by fraudsters, be sure to buy direct from Steam.

If you bought direct from us before July 17 and find your key cancelled, it may be due to a separate glitch we had (affecting only a few dozen people). You should be able to get a new key immediately from the Steam key giver, and continue playing where you left off.
