The in-game free steam key reward feature

Every player can unlock an extra copy of the game by actively playing for over one hour. This Steam key is the ideal invitation to play Marooners together with friends.

Specifically, only the in-game time while playing counts towards this requirement. Once a full hour is played, players will receive a Steam key in the game’s main menu.

Starting today, all players that buy or have bought the game during Early Access receive the exclusive golden “Wrench of Early Access” weapon as a token of gratitude from the developers.

On the game’s launch day the community can unlock a number of new weapons together: all of the new weapons will require the community to do something different based on the global game stats. The community will have to slap or steal coins thousands of times in order to unlock the “Plump Plumber’s Plunger” and other weapons.
