Splatter is also present on Steam Greenlight now. If you have a Steam account and you want to see Splatter there, please vote for us!
Thank you very much! Background story:
Steam is a successful distribution platform for PC games. They passed the 50 Million Users mark some months ago and are still growing. Steam provides a prominently exposed online shop, a phantastic service for your games collection and regular deals.
What does that mean to us? Well… Steam has a huge market share. There are quite some sale reports by indie developers now, and they mostly tell the same story: Steam is responsible for more than 70% of the overall revenues. Also many gamers appreciate Steam for what it offers to them, and explicitly wait for a Steam version until the buy a game. I won’t judge them, for I – as a gamer – also like Steam very much.
That means: whatever measures we take, how many people we reach, it’s all equal. Without Steam we’ll achieve only a fraction of the revenues. But Splatter needed two guys for two years to complete. We need high revenues to make this adventure worthwhile and to allow us to continue. So you could say: without Steam we don’t stand a chance in the long term. And that’s why I now ask every human to vote for us on Steam Greenlight.
