Payment Processor Issues

You may be aware that our website has been unable to process payments since late last night. Our team has been working to try and remedy this issue, but it may take some time to resolve.

Purchases on our website will be temporarily disabled while we work with our management team to resolve this problem and find a new payment processor. Should our website need to go down for maintenance, we will notify you all as soon as possible. We will provide updates on when our website can resume accepting payments and/or we have a temporary workaround in place.

In the meantime, why not check out the Steam Summer Sale? A vast majority of our catalog is currently discounted for the event. You can find the list of discounts here.

We sincerely hope to resume service for our loyal customers as soon as possible. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
