    I loved that The Eidolon devs put that notice there and Valve didn't interfere. Cheeky gambit but fun.

    But yeah, Humble is filling the void GMG, Gamersgate and what have you should have by,...

    Hehe, aye. Most of mine are from the Bundle Of Love which didn't come with giftable links.

    We're just the best at bundles.

    Oh yeah, but the majority of the "best" deals are either on Steam or replicated there within no time. There isn't the numbers elsewhere to warrant deep discounts *without* discounting on Steam (and...

    Might have skipped over it mentioned earlier but Humble now lets you see what keys you've got unclaimed in your library.

    Probably more useful if it was taken up by the other bundlers with their...

    Nothing that hasn't been elsewhere a few days either side though.

    I still suspect that the moment Steam let developers set their own prices, the jig was sort of up for most of the other stores....

    One of the frustrating things about this is that when you write videogames or you write about videogames you already lay yourself open for a disproportionate amount of shit. I honestly don't know why...

    An ex of a developer posted a run of chat logs and stuff to the internet after they'd split up. Internet seized on one of the people the dev stands accused of sleeping with being a games journalist. ...

    Probably worth mentioning again at this point that they have 50k banked to be going on with and 4 games still making money on Steam.

    The race to the bottom may be a little overstated here.

    Oh yeah, totally agree with you. Steam's weird in that without it PC gaming would absolutely be in a right old mess but it's a massively imperfect system and when Valve make mistakes, the ripples...

    I don't mind attitude, I just wish it was a bit easier to read!

    Couple of disagreements, I suppose. Might of got the wrong end of the stick on a few because a) I'm knackered and b) as rants go,...

    You've just made that up. Nobody uses comments for that purpose at all. They're there not to give people a right to reply but to foster a community and get people returning to a site. Nobody uses the...

    I know a few but most people are just sensible enough to mail the keys out so they don't really spill out much into Steam-o-geddon and I know it sounds shifty but it's not like *most* devs make a...

    Ehhhh. No.

    They have email addresses listed if it's that important.

    It's pretty much expected that if your game is in a bundle regardless of whether you actually promised Steam keys or not, you hand them over now. I think it's fair dos for a Greenlight bundle where...

    I've been using Gamemaker for over 10 years now (not for TBS because I don't do TBS) and it'll turn its hand to pretty much anything that takes place on a 2d plane with not too much friction. But as...

    Outside of big publishers it's probably going to be fairly informal anyway and review copies are probably going to go out fairly late. Not out of some sort of attempt to trick people, just with PC...

    I don't know how well it translates to desktop but I really enjoy Jones On Fire on the iThunk. It's simple but nails all the stuff I want from an autorunner (it has cats).

    I remember seeing the screenshots of Perimeter in PC Gamer before it came out and thinking "wow, that looks astounding".

    Well, that was a disappointment wasn't it?

    It's not exhaustive but I'd say it's a fairly accurate and really good piece of advice for devs. Devs will be contacted now pretty much the moment a game gets Greenlit or when it hits Steam, the...

    Nope. Disney didn't put it on Steam, hardly promoted the thing and then shuttered the devs not long after.

    Big shame because whilst it's got some serious rubber banding going on, it's a...

    Blur was, I dunno, much of a nothing really? It wasn't bad but it seemed to lose all the joy of a kart racer somewhere down the back of the sofa being so very orange and teal.
