Anyone know any good deals hidden online for Divinity:OS? I am hoping to get it somewhere for 20$ (i have $5 wiggle room ) or under without having to wait months on end for a possible steam sale. I found sites like cheapdigitaldownload.com but I am unsure how safe a site like it or ones it refers me to are going to be.

This type of game is probably one of my favorites and been yearning for it for a while now. Also I am started to get a little burned out on Diablo 3. I have put a stupid amount of time into recently. Being on a rigid budget has made it a difficult task to acquire games that really want. So anyone sees some sort of deal please let me know. Thanks everyone.

I think you should just wait. If you're on such a budget you can't afford a game like Divinity that is already discounted there's probably other priorities out there. There's tons of games on steam that are cheap that I'm sure can fill the hole until Divinity goes down in price. I don't think it's worth trying to go to untrustworthy sites to try and save a couple bucks.

It's selling so well that they have no reason to have a sale. Wait till the Steam Halloween Sale and it will be like 33% off.

It's worth supporting if you can. It's also not as great as many are making it to be though, so don't feel too bad about waiting for it to come down in price if you have to.

Quoted for freaking truth right here! The game is good, no doubt, but it is not the second coming of Baldur's Gate (not even close) and I don't even like it as much as some of Larian's other games. If you are short on cash wait for a sale. It is worth a play, but if you are strapped it isn't so good it is a "must play".

g2a.com has steam keys for about 16€, which should translate to 22$ or something like that.

How come they have games so cheap? Googling them some say they are scammers while others swear they are legit.

@ripelivejam: It's worth supporting for their intentions, "if you can". If he isn't in a position to do so, the end product itself isn't so good that he should feel like he's missing out.

@dagas: Don't ask me, man. I only bought something there once, Divinity incidentally, and everything was okay then. Never googled them beforehand either, because a friend of mine referred me to them, so the thought didn't even cross my mind.

I tend to avoid all third-party key resellers and just wait for Steam sales for games I don't want to pay full price for. There are just way too many incidents of keys being recalled or issues with accounts because the reseller bought a bunch of Russian keys and sold them to people with NA or EU accounts, things like that. Recently there was even the Rebellion situation with a bunch of Sniper Elite 3 keys that were sold by key resellers that got revoked, and people didn't get their money back. Turns out the keys were stolen.

Chances are you would probably be fine using a third party reseller, I just personally do not want to risk it or support potentially shady business practices.

As someone who lives in Russia and uses Steam legitimately (rather than through a VPN) nearly all games on Steam here nowadays are sometimes half the price of their NA/EU counterparts (even before the sales). The major downside, apart from pointless delayed release dates or some titles embargoed/unavailable during sales, is that certain Steam purchases made in Russia and CIS states can only be added to the libraries of computers running steam in those countries (an issue which became hugely apparent during the first week of Borderlands 2's release, which eventually led to two versions being given to Russian customers because for some insane reason 2K didn't fully get the "MM" part of MMO). In some respects it's a little shitty, especially if I want to gift a game to someone in, say, Seattle, or if I'm back home at Christmas and want to purchase a title via the steam app.

This region purchasing issue also applies to Divinity as well, but on the upshot, at least they recently got 1C in to localize it.

I got my Divinity key from there and can confirm their legitimacy. Use paypal.
