Post Promoting Phobos
Hello!

I assume all of you are familiar with steam and its features, but I'm not sure how many has heard about Steam Greenlight.

What is Steam Greenlight? (Copy from the homepage):

"Steam Greenlight is a new system that enlists the community's help in picking some of the next games to be released on Steam. Developers post information, screenshots, and videos for their game and seek a critical mass of community support in order to get selected for distribution. Steam Greenlight also helps developers get feedback from potential customers and start creating an active community around their game as early in the development process as they like."

You can read more about it here: http://steamcommunity.com/greenlight/

The first games got accepted from Greenlight today, ten days after its launch. Having Phobos on Steam means free advertising and a larger community which in my opinion is always welcome. :like:

What do you think about this? :)

We'll have to look into this. We actually wanted to refrain from promoting the game further, as long as we are neither finished nor have a steady flow of progress. It sounds like a nice opportunity, though.

Well you could just wait until it's released and then post it to Steam Greenlight?

Steam Greenlight is obviously in very early stages. But like Till said, I doubt we'd even consider using it until release. I'm not even sure that Steam would really suit us; it would depend very heavily on the revenue split. But you can be sure that we'll be following the development of Greenlight closely.

Yup there is. It's just to prevent the massive influx of "spam" projects which caused a bit problems. But the $100 proceeds goes directly to Child's Play so I don't mind paying for it myself if we come to that point.
