Adding Smokin' Guns to Steam

Postby Nevada Smith » Sat Sep 01, 2012 3:24 am

Perhaps this has already been noted, but you can now submit games to be added to Steam via the Steam Greenlight mechanism. If your submitted game obtains enough votes from users, Valve will add the game to their Steam service:

This seems like an excellent way to promote Smokin' Guns and obtain more players.

PS. Valve accept mods, not just normal games. =)

I assume someone would have to personally "own" the game before that happens, or the team would need to become a legal entity, possibly a non-profit registered with one of governments if there's going to be any money from the sales or even contributions. Not to mention all the content included must be clear regarding licensing.

As far as i understood http://www.valvesoftware.com/legal.html, you can upload sg at steam anyway and if anyone claims copyrights(i don't think this is going to happen) it will be removed.

Yes... There are several other Western mods currently being voted on at Steam Greenlight. As such, Smokin' Guns might have a chance too.

Hi,
having myself a Steam account, I'm checking what's possible.
Btw, now you still must pay 100$ to submit a game... Maybe maybe.

Also, I can see only 41 members in the Smokin'Guns steam Group !! Where are our players in Steam ? So join it, join it if you have a Steam account !!
Join it ! Join it !
