Just like the subject asks, "When purchasing directly from arcen, do you get a steam key too?"

I figure it's better for them than buying from steam, but I would like a steam key. The one page does not seem to be updated with TLF info.

The closest you can get to "direct" that I can find is through the humble widget/store, and with that you do indeed get a steam key plus the DRM free copy.

Oh, I thought if I did the paypal thing on this page, it would be direct. But that might be through humble as well since it says "humble widget".

Whoops, forgot to add the link to page i was talking about: http://www.arcengames.com/w/index.php/tlf-features

We will eventually offer the game direct through us, but actually we get a bigger cut from the Humble Widget and you get both the Steam key and DRM-free copy. The way we've had to do Steam keys for direct purchases in the past is a bit cumbersome, so it's very possible we'll forgo them this time around. Nothing confirmed though, haven't yet discussed it as a team.

Ok, humble widget it is then. Thanks.
