Gifting the game to 2 friends, best way?

Post by Aeternus »

Not sure where else to post this... this is kinda a sales question but there's no section for that on the forums.

I want to gift the game to 2 friends of mine as an early christmas gift. I've shown them the game and we've played around with it a bit, it's fun to do a little 3 way coop. But I'm kinda stuck on how to do that. I've bought my own copy through the humble bundle, but I'm not sure if I can buy another 2 copies through the same mail address. Is that possible, and if no, is there another way I can buy 2 more licenses that I can then give to my friends?

You could buy it multiple times as a gift on GOG.

If you can't buy multiple copies with the same email address, you can also gift it on Steam.
There are 10 types of people: those who get this joke and those who don't.

You can buy as much as you like via Humble.
For every purchase you will get an email with a key.

Purchase direct. Leave it to them whether they want to transfer it to Steam.

If they use Steam a lot just gift it to them virtually through Steam
