Update #16

WE ARE GOLD!

Hello everyone!

We have been busy as of late! We are GOLD! We are launching on Steam, Desura, Gamestop, and the Humble Store (via our official website) on the 31st of January!

Rejoice in that Retrovirus has a solid release date! Huzzah! 

Now we have one little favor to ask of you, tell everyone you know! That is really the last portion of the puzzle here in order to make sure we are successful because without your support we wouldn't have made it this far. Sure, our Kickstarter didn't make it, but we gained a second wind in a project that has taken us two and half years to complete!

For believing in us and our project, we thank you all so very much. We've asked a lot of you thus far, but one more time (to be followed by a last time when we launch), tell everyone you know. Tell your high school history teacher, your local dolphin handler, your old best friend-who-hooked-up-with-your-crush (actually, forget that guy), tell your mother, brother, sister, uncle, father, father (priest version), rabbi, monk, jouster, dog sitter, and sitting dog!

Tell them all that Retrovirus is coming January 31st!

      While we love our old PC game manuals and box copies, that isn't really on our radar, but we are keeping that option open because who doesn't want a copy in our real life hands!

      Any chance the game will find its way into the physical world (box on the shelf) afterwards? Maybe through Lace Mamba (GB), Headup Games (GER/CH/AUS), Daedalic (EU-wide) or an US-equivalent (Atlus?) to such publishers. I could even get you in contact with Headup if needed :).

      Btw, just to reiterate, the Steam keys are sent to those who purchased the game during the Alpha/Beta stages and not after release.

      @Obsidian- Zombies are fine as long as they aren't trying to eat you; if they are, then you're going to have a bad time.

      We are giving keys to those who purchased the game through Gamestop, Desura, and Humble Store. If you want to have a Steam key you will get one if you purchased from those distributors. Thank you for your support during the Alpha/Beta!

      Oh and I have also told the zombies who came to invade my house, is that also acceptable?

      That is great news! :D

      And for all those that wondered, this is from update #14

      "We just put up our Greenlight page today, and we need your help to get Retrovirus released on Steam. If we are accepted on Steam, then everyone who purchased us in pre-order on GameStop, Desura, or RetrovirusGame.com will receive a Steam key. So, please take a moment and give us your vote."

      I'm pretty stoked to see this finally. I've not had time to check it out on Gamestop's thingy, but I'll make time when it comes out on Steam!

      Like Veav, I also picked up the game on Gamestop when it launched on the platform.
      Any chance we may get Steam keys?

      I'm really not a fan of the Gamestop client, and only purchased there to support you, so if you can work something out in order for us to get Steam keys, it would be much appreciated. :)

      I picked this up on gamestop way back in the day to support the project. Anyone know how good GS is at providing steam keys?
