LIMBO: Free (to keep) on Steam for a limited time
« on: June 21, 2016, 04:50:11 PM »
Steam is offering LIMBO for free, for a limited time.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/48000/

Sometimes they have "free weekends" which are more like free rentals, meaning after the promotion period ends you'll no longer have access to the game. But occasionally they have time-limited giveaways where if you claim the game within the promotion period, the game is yours forever. The wording is vague, but I believe this is a case of the latter, and that you'll own the game after the promotion ends.

@Deozaan: Thanks, I was looking at it when it was on special a month or so ago for a couple of dollars ... procrastination FTW!

 :P

If you look at it in Steam it'll show as GAME PURCHASED before you install it.

Can you not access the store through the client and add it from there?

EDIT: Just click the Install Game button to add it to your account and you'll get:

Good thinking. But the game was already in my library from a previous purchase (probably a Humble Bundle), so I couldn't test for myself.
