Purchasing games for others

posted by Laaaz on - last edited - Viewed by 580 users

I just played through the demo and am am about to order Sam & Max season one. Besides purchasing the game for myself, I would like to give the game to some friends as a gift:

Can I order and purchase the game for others as well?

  • Vogge, that's a good idea!

    We heard back from Digital River that you have already bought for a friend, you'll need to provide them with your order number and password. (If you don't feel comfortable doing this, PM or email me and we'll figure something else out.)

    If you are planning to buy for a friend but haven't yet, the best way will be to do it as part of a separate order so they have their own order number and password. Use your own email address if you don't want them to receive the confirmation email. We can switch the email address on the order to theirs later on if you ask us to.

  • Thx Emily, will try it next time a friend has birthday (which is in december) :-)

  • Emily,

    I have purchased season one of Sam and Max twice (2 separate orders, as you suggested). How do I transfer the second purchase my friend. I would like her to receive the updates as the next five episodes are released.

  • If you email me with the order number and the email address you want on the order, I can change it for you.

  • I just sent you an e-mail. Hopefully the transfer will go smoothly

    BTW.
    I am enjoying the copy that I bought for myself quite a bit.

  • Thanks, got your email. :)

    Any update on a "nice" way of giving SnM as a gift? I like the idea of some sort of E-Card with something like "Hey, somone likes you a lot and wants you to play Sam n Max - here it is, download here!"

    Just ordering it and then changing the email-address is not that fun, maybe the recipient of an email like this will delete it as spam ("Free game? Yeah sure!") if you cannot put a personal message in it.

    Phoo

    Yeah, we really like that idea too, and want to implement something like this in the future. Right now we're a little too busy churning out games once a month, though. :D

  • ...hm, I understand that :). But would it be possible that I order the thing (and pay it) and the "Download Now" email is sent to the recipient of the gift? Maybe with a note (like replacing "your order" with "your gift" or something).
    Pleease :).

    Phoo
