Steam codes for Telltale-website bought titles?

Hi,

I wanted to ask, if I've bought all these games through Telltale.com, is it possible to get Steam codes for them as well, so that I can also link them to my Steam account?

Thank you very much!

    We don't give Steam codes for our games as of right now, but you can pretty easily add a shortcut to any of the games in Steam's games library.

    Right now? Is it possible that you might do this in the future?
    I really enjoy telltale games so I buy em from this site because of the collectors dvds. But I would rather have all my games organized on steam.

    Yes, I agree,;) it would be very nice.

    For example, guys at TheHumbleBundle when you purchase a bundle of indie games from their website, they give you also the code to redeem your games directly on steam, not via a link of an externally installation.

    I REALLY appreciate it if you'll do it in the future... PLEASE! Something tells me that I'm not the only one who will be happy of the service (a second code, valid on Steam, along with the original TelltaleGames one - for each purchased game, or per "season" if that apply).

    Thanks a lot in advance in any case, have a nice day.

    They probably don't do it because it would mean less money for them. Perhaps they could charge an extra fee, but [and I lack certain knowledge of Valve's licensing system] it's possible the extra fee could be as much as the price of the game on Steam.

    With the current situation on Steam, I'd like to bump this topic briefly, and would appreciate it if someone on the Telltale team could please respond.

    During Steam's Holiday Sale, they're running a contest where people receive gifts, coupons, and entries into a sweepstakes, simply for playing games and scoring achievements. This year, at least 2 Telltale titles are part of this contest. Jurassic Park (with the "Holiday Bonus" achievement announced today) and Puzzle Agent 2 (which hasn't been announced by Steam yet, but which seems a no brainer for inclusion with the "Christmas Tree Census" achievement that was added).

    This creates a bit of a problem for many devoted Telltale fans. Because we went out of our way to support Telltale by purchasing the games through the Telltale store, we don't have a Steamworks enabled copy of the game, and so can't actually score these achievements. This in particular hurts people who purchased the Deluxe editions of the game, which were unavailable on Steam in the first place.

    In the past, Telltale have provided Steam keys for pre-order customers of Poker Night at the Inventory. While that was undoubtedly a special occasion, I would ask if Telltale might consider somehow enabling this for their customers again on these two particular titles (and any other Telltale titles included in this contest, though I don't think there are any), either for free, or for a small nominal fee to partially or fully cover whatever Steam might be charging you for doing it.

    We definitely appreciate the feedback on this, and I promise it's not an idea that's being dismissed here. I totally get where you're coming from and I wish I had some news on this for you, but as of right now, I don't.
  • edited December 2011
    Thanks for the quick reply Michael, I appreciate it.

    The Steam contest will continue until January 2nd, and achievements will continue to be counted up until that time, so just knowing that it's not an idea being instantly being dismissed is great to hear. There's still plenty of time for us to get those achievements if something can be done, and I hope that Telltale might be able to find a solution over these next 12 days or so that will work for everyone.

    I know you've already responded, but I'd just like to toss in that I, too, am saddened that I can't participate in the Steam hunt.

    I was never particularly bothered by not having my Telltale games on Steam before, but when they have achievements on Steam... well, I like getting achievements! It's a fun little addition. It doesn't ruin the experience to not have them, by any means, but it's always nice when I do. And now that Telltale is participating heavily in the Steam metagame achievement hunt, I miss them all the more!

    Add another person who would love a steam code for Jurassic Park. Bought the deluxe edition and having it in my steam list would be hugely convenient. :D
  • edited December 2011
    Hey,

    I just got access to a very, very limited number of Steam keys for Jurassic Park and Puzzle Agent. I can give you one if you ordered one of those games through us, so if you need one, please PM me with your order number.

    I don't have an infinite number of keys, and I won't be able to offer them once the Steam Gift Pile promotion ends on January 2nd, barring any future policy changes.

    Edit: I originally thought I had Puzzle Agent 2 keys, but it looks like I was sent Puzzle Agent 1 keys. So I have those, and I'm working to get the PA2 keys now. Sorry about that.

    The Sequel to Edit: I have the PA2 keys now.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Awesome! Hopefully I'm not too late. I appreciate the gesture, even if I am.

    Telltale prove once again why they are awesome. =) You don't get customer service like this from any ordinary company.
  • edited December 2011
    I'm caught up on all the requests now, and still have plenty for any of you who still want them. Please make sure you include your order number in the PM. If you've already deleted that email, you can grab the order number from your My Telltale page here.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    I'd just like to say thanks loads, you guys are rad.

    This is pretty great, but is any of your codes working, guys? I've tried entering mine, but it says it's already been used by an existing Steam account :(

    Your PM got lost in the shuffle for me this morning. You should have a new code now.

    Many thanks, Michael. I received my code earlier while I was at work and just entered it into Steam now that I'm home.

    If you hadn't made the offer yesterday, I was planning to pick up JP on Steam at the discounted daily deal of $15, despite already having the deluxe copy.

    Thanks again!
  • edited December 2011
    I kind of hope I'm not late on getting the JP codes.

    This is also a service I'd like to see here on Telltale.

    Steam is becoming my platform of choice, and I find myself stressing over the management of games not on the platform.

    I usually buy my games from Tell Tale shop, for support and those excelent collectors editions, but I'd rather be able to have them also on steam..

    Please consider having this as an option (steam keys) on your download page.

    Thank you for all the great games!

    Hi,

    I'm backed up on getting these keys out, and responding to inquiries in general, because we're all out of the office this week and I'm stuck working remotely from a Droid tablet. If you sent me a PM in the last few days, you'll be getting your key soon, and I apologize for the delay.

    I've brought up a potential policy change in regards to the Steam keys, but for right now, this is being done as a very limited time offer because of the Steam promotion. The feedback is appreciated, though.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Thanks and I can understand the limits of a tablet. ;-)

    Good to hear, I was afraid because I wasn't active on the forums I was ineligible :)
    And amazing that your giving up your free time for this :o

    (found this post last week Googling the issue)

    Great service like this (and pm sent).

    What about Poker Night at the Inventory? Will that get Steam keys too in the forseeable future?
  • edited December 2011
    I'm all caught up on the requests now. Sorry again for the delay.

    Swee1, if you bought Poker Night through us, you should be able to get a Steam key here: http://www.telltalegames.com/tf2unlocks

    Thanks,
    Michael

    I did not know that!

    Also, thanks for the Puzzle Agent key! You're the best!

    Now here's to hoping this will become general policy and I can switch my other games to Steam as well :P
  • edited December 2011
    Thank you very much!

    I second Swee1, you are the best! How many other people would take time out of their days off to help out in a pinch like this?!
  • edited December 2011
    Thanks a lot for the key Michael, you rock!
    And I agree swee1, games are so much easier to manage when you have them all in the Steam library.
  • edited December 2011
    Happy holidays, Michael! I hope you would find time to answer my request before steam event is over.
  • edited January 2012
    The steam promotion is ending right about now, so I guess I'm late for getting any keys. It's a shame on my part, but it warms my heart to see Telltale being so great again.

    You didn't really have to this, but you still did. That's why you are up there as one of the few best game companies around.
  • edited January 2012
    I can fulfill any requests PM'd to me prior to 10am PST today, when the Steam promotion officially ends. I don't know if you'll have time to get the achievements at this point, though.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Sorry to resurrect this thread after almost one year.

    But I bought Sam & Max Season 1 back in 2007 (for Windows) and got my physical copy. 6 years later I want to play it again - but since I moved to OS X and my iMac not having an optical drive there is no way for me to play :( besides buying an external drive or buying the game on steam again :/

    So how is the current situation concering steam keys? I would love to play Sam & Max again..

    Thanks,
    Ben

    If you bought the game in the Telltale store (and as far as I can tell, you did), it should be available for download on the Your Games page.

    Actually, no straight up Mac version of the first season exists at this time (so, Steam keys would not be helpful either).
    There are ways to run the PC version on Mac, though (I personally used CrossOver Games - now, just CrossOver -, but people have had success with Wine).
  • edited May 2013
    Since this thread has been resurrected anyway, is it likely whatsoever we'll end up with the option of steam-redeemable titles? I bought Tales of Monkey Island with MI1:SE a few years ago here and would love to be able to have them on steam for easier usage.
  • edited May 2013
    I also would love it when I could redeem my games bought on telltalegames.com on steam!

    I was wondering if I could get a steam code for my version of the walking dead season 1... I bought it back in November full price from this Telltale website and downloaded it. then I recently got steam after already buying the walking dead through this site. I was able to add it as a "non-steam" game, so it's in my list of games, but all the achievements, and game background, and the cool stuff like that doesn't show up with it, steam pretty much just launches the application for me... is there anyway to get a steam code for my game? or am I stuck just using the "non-steam" version the way I have it?
    Thanks!
