FRONTIERS is coming to Steam Greenlight on March 30th!


Hello, everyone - on March 30th FRONTIERS will be going live on Steam Greenlight! (Don't know what the heck Steam Greenlight is? Click here.)

And I need your help. I plan to distribute the game on GOG and Humble Bundle as well, but getting on Steam is my number one priority right now. Why? Because Steam's free tools will help me to distribute and rapidly patch the pre-release beta. The beta is a massive undertaking, and every minute I don't spend packaging and distributing and wrangling the next build is another minute spent squashing bugs and balancing gameplay.

Here's the Plan

Remember how much we kicked ass on Kickstarter? A big part of that was the early influx of backers. That pushed us into the top ranks, which generated interest, which kept us in the top ranks. I want to pull the same trick with Greenlight, which is why I'm doing a pre-announcement. If every backer with a Steam account plus even a fraction of the 10,000 from the Steam Concepts page votes YES on the FIRST DAY it ought to raise a few eyebrows.

In other words, the plan is lots of votes really fast. IT'S JUST CRAZY ENOUGH TO WORK.

Media gods willing I might even be able to swing a bit of press. In the meantime, you can help by telling everyone you know who might even have a passing interest in FRONTIERS (and a Steam account) to get ready to vote. I aim for a quick, decisive victory!

Isn't Greenlight getting phased out?

Hilariously, yes, they are phasing it out. Great timing right? But they haven't announced exactly when this is happening, only 'sometime in the next 12 months,' and in the meantime I've got to play by their rules.

I'll post a final announcement once the Greenlight page goes live on the 30th.

After the Greenlight launch is behind me I'll do a proper monthly update - I've got answers to some of the questions you asked last time, plus new gameplay footage.

      I didn't include one. I'm shaking it up and keeping everyone on their toes.

      I couldn't find a cat video link this time... Did you beat me Lars, or did you forget about it? ;)

      Trading cards + achievements please. And yep gonna give it a thumbs up.

      Fredric / gandalf.nho - I may be stuck relying on Steam to distribute the beta, but you will absolutely have a DRM-free option for the final release. I strongly, strongly dislike DRM so that's not just lip service.

      I hope you get greenlit, but please don't forget about the backers who despise any form of DRM.

      Nice, we need to greenlight this soon.

      And regarding the final release, hope will be able to choose in what platform we want the game (Steam, GOG...)

      Will definitely be promoting this, I'm the opposite of all those zealous anti-steam folk you see in 99% of Kickstarter comments in that I'm actually not likely to play a game at all *unless* it's on Steam.
      Just promise us some Achievements/Trading cards :)

      Sounds like maybe a good thing then. I'd rather have a flood of junk with if it meant good stuff too. The process really kept a lot of great stuff off Steam, or in limbo, and it wasn't really keeping junky stuff out anyway. So huzzah!

      Hopefully Frontiers will get in with absolutely no issue. Should do.

      >Won't this keep a lot of stuff off Steam?

      As far as I understand it, they're removing Greenlight as a barrier to entry. So you'll probably see more indie games than before. (I'm not sure how they plan to manage the submissions, but that's what I've heard.)

    10. Jesse Dylan Watson on March 27, 2014

      I definitely want Frontiers on Steam, and I want this for the game itself, too! Let us know, and we'll be there for vote day one!

      Maybe the wrong time/place to discuss this, but I'm confused about Greenlight getting phased out. Won't this keep a lot of stuff off Steam? A lot of Kickstarter games have gotten on via Greenlight.

      Crazy promo time! :)

      It shall be done indeed. :)

    13. Janosch Müller on March 27, 2014

      It shall be done. If a game like Frontiers can't get through Greenlight, something is utterly wrong with this world.

      I'm in 03/30 it is!

    15. BdB on March 27, 2014

      Everyone please vote even if you dislike Steam its for the game ,its for us all :)
      Thank you :)
