10) I bought the game, but there is no registration key in it. How do I activate the demo?

A: Some games are DRM free and do not have any license code or registration keys to unlock it. The demo game and the full version are separate files. Read your purchase email and you will find a download link to the download the full version of the game.  That link will be valid for 48 Hours or first download, which ever is earlier. Back up your save files, uninstall the demo and install the full version of the game. Then put back the save file to start playing!

A: Please contact us at [email protected] with the purchase reference number, we will re-activate the download link or send you an alternate download link.

12) What is a DRM free game? It seems that I can play the demo of DRM free games longer than 1 hour.

A: DRM stand for digital rights management software and it is used to wrap the full version game so that it is limited to one hour of game play when people download the demo. It is mainly used to kill piracy and let the actual customers enjoy the benefits of his/her purchase. It requires a key to unlock the demo to full version, which you receive in your purchase email usually. But sometimes the DRMs can start of false antivirus alarm or cause problem during activation of the product. Keeping the convenience of the customer, some developers release games DRM free.  A DRM free game does not contain this wrapper, so the demo and the full version files of the game are usually separate and it doesn’t require any sort of activation or key insertion. The demo has limited game play, but not necessarily restricted to one hour and you can play it as per your pace and anytime you want. When you purchase the game, follow point 10.
