Steam Greenlight
« on: September 09, 2012, 05:37:03 AM »

This post is really mostly for the devs, obviously.  I was just wondering what the thoughts are on adding Starfarer to Steam  perhaps via Greenlight?  I'm not sure if there have been any talks about getting this up on steam when it is finished already, but if that has not already been done, perhaps you should toss it up to the masses?  I personally would really appreciate having this on Steam, as that is the source of most of my gaming content these days, but on the developer side it obviously makes a lot of sense as far as exposure.  I would be interested to hear what the devs or I guess really anybody would have to say about this.

Hey, nice idea, but its already been thought of quite a few times and turned down just as many. Keep coming up with new ideas though! Oh, and just a side thought, maybe try the search bar next time. Thanks and welcome to the forums!

Here's the quote from Alex, the lead developer:
Guys - I appreciate the thought, but I really don't feel like Starfarer is ready for this kind of exposure. Please don't do anything on my behalf to make that happen - I think it could end up causing serious problems, both for the development of the game, the community, and, indeed, my mental health :)

e/ I like that you got your initial as avatar ;D

a sticky should be added to everyone forum section, and the frontpage, that instructs the new posters to use the search function before doing anything else.
