Gifting a Humble Store game?

Postby Phoenixwarrior141 » Tue Oct 07, 2014 9:31 pm

I bought a collectors edition of a GWBW through the website of the developers, my plan was to keep the Art Book, Comic and Soundtrack for myself and gift the Steam Key to my friend. But for some reason the Humble Store (Which is what processed my transaction) won't give me the Steam key and instead insists that it redeems the key to my Steam Account. The gift icon isn't there and since I already own the game, I can't get the extra copy.

This costed me $20. Anyone know how to get through this?

I've wondered about this too, actually. I've got one or two unredeemed codes hanging about, but don't seem to have any option to gift them anymore.

It seems to be because Humble is insistent on redeeming the code itself, not just giving you the code.

I'm pretty sure we could email the Humble Support Ninjas on this one.

Well why isn't it like this to begin with though? Doesn't it make sense to just tell me the code and let me redeem it myself or give it to someone? Or does Humble not know that and just gift me copies once I buy it?

You could try to unlink your Humble Bundle account from your Steam account. That way, you should receive a key, like before, instead of getting the game redemmed autommatically. To do this, go to preferences.
