Hello everyone!
We are so happy to announce that Illyriad has finally launched on Steam! What does this mean for you? This means that you can now play Illyriad through Steam and can participate in all of Steam's great social features, gather achievements, even obtain trading cards!
To find the game, check here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/559310/
For more information on Steam -- what it is and how it works -- go here: http://store.steampowered.com/about/
Unlike the regular web version of Illy, the Steam version of Illyriad costs 4.99USD/3.99GBP; however for this price you do receive an additional starting bonus of 200 Prestige, which is a modest one-off discount on the current price for 200 prestige.
We're happy to announce that the price is discounted 20% for one week, to allow our current and wonderful veteran players a chance to try it out!

Also, please leave an honest review for the game!
If you have any questions about this, please feel free to leave them here, or on the Steam Store page!
Thanks for everything.
The Illyriad Team

To link your current account to Steam Account use the "Link Existing Account" button rather than the "Play Now" button.



It will then ask you for username and passoword for your current account; then link them.

Got the Steam download, couple things-

1) Will the chat boxes have the option to be moved around?

2) The mysteries achievements (Allembine, Famine Management, Gnome Brew, etc) didnt unlock when i linked my accts. Same with the ones like 'Vacationer', which shows i exo'd a city, but didnt unlock achievement. Book-keeper too. along with a few others.

3) Links in the GC  or off profile dont do anything (tho they do appear clickable)

Aside from these little things, the steam version looks great. Wouldnt mind the option to zoom out, like in the browser, but that's also minor.

Also, Private Chat boxes can get stuck behind the GC/AC boxes, and since they cannot be moved im not sure how to get them free without restarting app and sending new PC.

And can you direct me to the place to turn off music?

It will in the coming months (and Mac); however we are ironing out the bugs on the one platform atm.

btw steam also has the AC bug. Where when you switch to a sat it will show the other accounts alliance chat and since steam as no way to reload it will become a problem

Released an update that temporally disables the music; this is until you can switch it off and on in game.

Hopefully should have a resolution to the stat based achievements tomorrow.
