Aaaand TUG is Officially Greenlit!!!!

Posted by Nerd Kingdom (Creator)

Steam announced today that TUG got Greenlit... and in record time! And it's all thanks to you: our brilliant, wonderful, amazing community. You guys and gals seriously rock!  

Of course, it doesn't end here... this is just the beginning. As we prepare for Steam Early Access, we'll need your help and continued support more than ever. 

This is such an exciting journey for us, and we couldn't be more thrilled to share it with you. 

From all of us here at Nerd Kingdom.... THANK YOU!

      Hey! Glad to see that you're on a successful journey. I unfortunately have problems with starting the game. It states that I need DirecX11 in order to start the game, but my Diacnostic tool indicates that I actually have DirectX 11 installed on my computer. I pledged for the alpha and I haven't been able to play so far, which is quite sad :( Can you help me?

      We need to wait and look into how we integrate Steam key generation into our system first. Once that's all ready to go, we can definitely provide Steam keys to our current backers. We all use Steam here too :-)

      Will supporters with a software tier get a steam code? I'd love to keep track of the software with steam.
