surely you mean to post this

http://store.steampowered.com/app/700480/

(I don't agree with it being retitled "Microsoft Allegiance" though. that's gonna prompt a legal action)

I never had a chance to play Allegiance when it was new, I just mucked about with the demo's training levels and that was about all I ever played of it

Also the steam user reviews are a cesspool of idiocy.

Not free. You can get a DRM free copy only if you have a steam or Runic Games licence.

^ and it's more complicated, it only works with keys directly bought from Runic or Steam : I have Torchlight2 bought from gamersgate and activated on Steam but the key is invalid to redeem on GOG

To redeem games from Steam you have to use GOG Connect

nope , this won't work for Torchlight games if the keys are bought anywhere except RUNIC themselves. So as I mentioned before, a key bought from gamersgate is not eligible to redeem on GOG - they say so in the text at the bottom of the screem

Note that the GOG.com/reclaim promotion is available only for keys provided through runicgames.com – this does not include Steam keys, which are temporarily redeemable through gog.com/connect.


Yep, they say so :D, and I did the same with S.T.A.L.K.E.R from gamersgate

Siberia is currently for free on the GoG.com entry page.
How did I notice? Since I got an email that the game was added. I must have clicked the banner earlier without even noticing.
