Upcoming game and a note on Steam keys

Greetings Commandos,
It is hard to believe that the game is nearing its sixth anniversary! Overall, it has been a great learning experience for us, so we'd like to thank everybody for supporting the game. Your feedback has been invaluable and in return we'd like to remain as transparent as possible.

Upcoming game
Super Chains is currently in development so join our Steam group to find out more. Some very exiting updates to Super Chains are on the way so please share your feedback, it really helps out a lot!

A note on Steam keys
If you are one of the few people who have received a key for 8-Bit Commando through any third party website, we encourage you to activate your key as soon as possible. Everyone should have had more than a year to activate their keys, and failing to do so, means that your key may not work in the future.

Thanks for taking a look and much love!
