Did the owners of this game pre-steam get a steam key? If so how would i go about getting one since i probably deleted it from my email
Yes! Looking at your forum key I can see that you bought the game from itch.io originally. If you don't have an account there, you can set one up with the email address you used for buying the game, and then the game will be in your account. And then you can go into your purchase entry for the game and get a Steam key. :)
Thanks, I created an account on itch with both of the emails that i could have bought the game using, but airships is not showing up there. Am i doing anything wrong?
No, that should work. Can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the two email addresses, and I'll search through itch.io from my end.
