Default Better place to buy Lost Horizon?

Hey hows it going, on the deep silver shop website i read that you can only download the game for a year if you need to later on, what if i want to play the game a few years after i have to buy it again. Wondering if there is a better place to buy it? Thanks.

I just got it from the Deep Silver shop. It was half the price of Steam and the Adventure Shop at £17, and I figure if I want to play it again in a year or two and I've somehow lost the installation files I can just pick up a physical copy from a bargain bin. The total price I've paid will still be lower than getting it from other stores.

I'm not sure if the Deep Silver shop limits the number of times you can activate a copy of your game, though. Most digital downloads are limited, but this wasn't mentioned in my receipt. The order confirmation just gave me an option to purchase a year's download extension (21 days is included with the game), and a backup copy on dvd.

It's £17.99 on Steam. Plus you can install it on any computer you have Steam installed, and indefinitely - not just for a year.

Okay, at that price, I would have gotten it off Steam as well. Says €35.99 for me (10% off from €39.99). €39.99 from the adventure shop, so £17 from the Deep Silver shop seemed like a decent enough deal when I wanted to play it now. I keep backups of all my games anyway, so being able to download it again at any time is just a bonus.

Odd. I'm in the UK, and it definitely says £17.99, reduced from £19.99. Yeah, backups are handy, but I like the service Steam provides. It's genuinely convenient, does away with any need for physical copies or even digital backups, and with Steam Cloud you can even use your saves on different computers without having to do anything to transfer them over.

I want to make sure I have this straight. Steam says $17.99 for the game. That is American dollars is it not? Because Deep Silver says 39.99 which I assume is a different form of currency.
