Seems like we've overwhelmed their servers. The website is totally down, we'll just have to wait until they're online again I guess

The developer is working to resolve issues with the activation server.

Please bear in mind that their server is being slammed with thousands of requests. It's causing a lot of load for them, so issues like this are going to crop up.

This is not free. We provides our personal information which is extreamly valuable. But guess what. The serial does not work. The server does not work correctly. You know what is the worst thing is? The registration popup for Hordes Of Orcs is DEVIL OF ALL OF THE WORLD! I cannot close the popup. I have to restart my mac to get rid of the popup. "Buy Now" button leads "404 NOT FOUND" web page. What a shame!

Are you kidding me?  How about instead of just posting, you read through these pages and realize this issue has already been discussed and solved.

Will we get an email or something once its started working?  Or should we be checking back every once in a while?  I figure the checking back isn't helping the servers much...

Emailing everyone would actually cause more load, so we historically have not done so. Just check back every hour or so.

As long as you're not refreshing the receipt page every five seconds or so, it's not going to hinder anything further.

Last night I put my serial in for Hordes of Orcs, and it went grey, not allowing anything to be done. I tried this morning and it allowed me to enter it, but froze up after I allowed Little Snitch to send and receive information from Hordes of Orcs. Now I am stuck with the spinning beach ball of death.

It's total normal that your registration don't work, or sometimes freezes. Just try it later...

I think that okay, because the game is free. You don't pay a cent for it, so be patient!
Just try to see Freeverse website... Noting is working like it should. Even the Freeverse website don't run. So... Let's wait and see smile

I am not a gamer. The last game I enjoyed playing on a computer was Ultima Quest for the Avatar back in the late 80s and Descent in the 90s. I finally launch a game that is interesting and the registration process bites. If I could figure out how to reset the one-hour trial time I would do it. Oh well. Maybe a little patience will help. lol

We all, (including myself) need to be patient and grateful. Yes the servers appear to be down and the flood of requests fro serials is taxing, but we got the software FREE. Many of us seem spoiled and unrealistic about this. Thank you Macheist and thank you to all the companies that went in on this deal. I have purchased numerous bundles in the past and will continue to support. Thank you for giving us one free!

This is a lesson for developers: heinous registration processes are bad.  The server wouldn't be down if the game didn't require online activation, and people wouldn't be complaining about it as much if the trial period were closer to a week, instead of 60 minutes.

Nice game.  Crummy registration process.

Agreed.  Why 60 minutes?  It would be so easy to ignore for a week while I played that one mode, over and over again.  Honestly.  lol just being able to have some fun with it and maybe get better a little would make it alot easier haha.

Also, again not complaining just observing, but if you are putting your app in a Macheist bundle, given Macheist's history of success, shouldn't you be able to pretty accurately predict the traffic that you'll get, and then prepare for it?  It would have such a more positive impact on potential future customers, ya know?

Free verse doesn't even have their website coming up over 8 hours, interesting.
So this is what I'm getting now.  Not sure what's going on when you can't even reach the very folks who produce the produce for more than 8 hours.  But hope springs eternal and we wait with bated breath.

It is free so if we don't get it, what have we lost.  However, when asked how much I would pay for this, I would now say zip, since if there's no guarantee that things work in today's economy not going to spend my money or my son's excitement on something that would be only disappointment.  I think MacHeist is great, they can't control things however that being the case perhaps they need to test things out before putting them out there for the public consumption.  Just a thought.  Other than that, I am mostly happy with what MacHheist has done.
