I got an email today at 10:50 that said "The Superfluous" has been Greenlit by Steam. For those that don't know much about the PC Gaming market this is huge news. Steam is the largest PC game distributor in the world. Being Greenlit means that I'll be able to sell "The Superfluous" on Steam.
Selling a game on Steam has been one of my biggest dreams. Reaching this milestone is really beyond exciting. The process has been super stressful and I am sure my family will be happy to have me become closer to my normal self. Below I'll post my stats for the game.
I've seen a lot of games relying on less than ethical means to reach their Greenlight goal. Basically this means promising a Steam key if they vote Yes on their project. I don't really get this though. It doesn't reflect how good your game is and makes it harder for Steam to pick good games to Greenlight. Also it reduces the amount of money the game generates. So it is a lose for the community and a lose for the developer (if it's a good game).
Here are the stats. These are really only useful for other developers.
