Going Green

Yes! It finally is happening, AI Vendetta is now live on Steam Greenlight!
We want to thank Everybody; Friends, family and people from all around the world for your time, support and feedback. We could not have done it without you. Yet again we rely on your voice and your support:

Feel free to leave a comment or further feedback on Steam.
We will keep you posted on our progress as we go and we will of course try to answer any questions you may have!

For those that have been following us this announcement may be a little bit surprising. We've been planning for Steam Greenlight for a while now, but when Valve announced that they would be replacing Greenlight with Steam Direct, we knew we had to act fast. The reason we prefer Greenlight is that we really are interested in the voice of the community and we feel that we would lose that connection with Steam Direct. While Direct is still a completely valid decision of Valve, which we also support, we personally feel that having a real connection with our players and their feedback is more important than (nearly) guaranteed deployment on the Steam store through Direct!

Again, thank you so much! Please help us share AI Vendetta with the world by voting for us on Steam Greenlight!

More on Steam Direct

We appreciate that Valve is taking steps in improving their gateway to the Steam Store. Greenlight is an amazing place where lots of indie game gems exist and where everyone can have a shot at getting their creativity and hard work out there. It also gives people a voice and puts them in control of the way games are submitted to Steam. However, there are just so many games out there right now, some which are just not quite there yet and it's just too much to demand from your players to control the flood of submissions every day. So we respect Valve's choice in putting up a slightly larger barrier to allow only the games that have the right quality and funding behind them. We will definitely miss the community's voice but our only real wish is that small devs will still get their chances and opportunities in this new system.
