Regrettably, the only way you can currently register is on-line with a credit card. We are looking into alternative means of payment. If there is ever another way to register, rest assured that you'll read about it on the news page.
Update: We can now also accept payments through PayPal.
Our standard license allows you to install a game on as many computers as you own, provided it's for personal use only. If multiplayer functionality is supported, you can also play LAN multiplayer games between those computers using a single license. However, only one of your computers using your license (that is, with your particular authorization code) can participate in Internet multiplayer games at any given time. If you wish to play over the internet, then you will need a separate license for each participating computer.
All prices on our ordering page are in Euros. On the same page that shows your cart you can also find a link that will convert Euros into your local currency.

The page where you enter your card information is on the bank's web site, and the bank directly completes your transaction. We only get a message back saying "transaction went fine, please give this person their game". No credit card information is ever transmitted back to us.
Anyway, if you still have concerns, we'll be happy to discuss them with you personally.
Go for the default selection first. If you are having problems (for example, if the website is unavailable or your credit card is rejected), try the alternative method. However, note that most credit card rejections originate from the issuing bank itself, so if (for example) your bank does not allow internet transactions on your card, then the second method will fail too.
All options are secure and require a credit card, but they use different payment systems. Make sure that the method you choose accepts your particular credit card type.
For VISA and MasterCard cards, this number is located on the back of your card. There should be a number printed on the signature stripe. The last 3 digits of that number are your CVV/CVC code.
There are several reasons why this could be happening. There should be a reason given in the error message which could help to identify (or at least narrow down) what exactly went wrong. Common reasons for failed transactions include:
If this still doesn't solve the problem, try registering with an alternative method (you can select the registration method on the same page you entered your name & e-mail).
