So I bought a special edition of Prison Architect, but I don't know how to activate the code. Do I have to enter the code somewhere in the game? or somewhere else? I have the 'Prison Architect Name in Game Edition Key'. Does the key not work after a certain date?

    Did you confirm the key in one of the formats the "Product Activation" window says it must be? Where did you buy the key from? Feb 22, 2015 at 22:54
  • I bought the game that came with a key from steam. Yes I am pretty sure that the format is correct.

  • If you bought it from Steam, then you already have it activated on Steam and you just need to install the game. Feb 22, 2015 at 23:16
  • I did install the game.

  • What are you trying to do, then? "Activate" is only for adding a new game to Steam that you got from elsewhere. Feb 22, 2015 at 23:19

If you are looking for the benefits that come with the "your name in the game" portion of your key, you need to follow the instructions in this link. Upshot is, you need to contact the developers and they will work your request.

Otherwise, your key is activated on Steam and has given you the game (and after a check of the product page, should have given you all of Introversion's other titles as well), and that should be all it does on Steam.
