We have now distributed Steam keys to our customers.

We hadn't initially planned to give out Steam keys, and we were unable to promise them to anyone at the time.  However, several things changed over the last few months.

In case you're interested in the history of how this decision came about, here's a clarification:


  • Steam's terms of use prevented us from offering or even promising Steam keys to our customers while the game was available for purchase on but NOT on Steam.  As we had decided from the beginning that Steam Early Access was not a good fit, and it was fully our intention to keep the game live on until launch, Steam's terms of use prevented us from offering or promising Steam keys during that time.
  • Although we're quite big fans of itch,io, in discussions with our publishing partner, Team17, it became clear that it it made the most sense to eventually consolidate our PC customers onto the Steam platform as we work toward simultaneous launch of Aven Colony on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 later this year.
  • Our goal with the beta was to grow our user base enough to give us solid feedback on the beta and a direct line of communication with our customers through comments and our forums at, and it's clear that we already have enough customers to achieve that goal.
  • As a result, we've decided it's best to put off future purchases for the full game launch -- and we've now locked off the game to future purchases on
  • Given that it's no longer possible to purchase the game until its official launch in Q2 of this year, we're now able to distribute Steam keys to all of our initial customers.


We're glad to be able to support you with Steam keys, and we appreciate your understanding.

We will continue to update those of you currently playing the beta with new versions as they become available every 3-4 weeks, and we will continue to update the game on as well as Steam.
