What developers think of Steam reviews

Since 2013, Steam has allowed its users to leave reviews on the Steam page of games they have purchased. Using the system, players can leave a written description of the game in question, and then award it a binary “Recommended” or “Not Recommended” rating.

In Rust, everything comes from a single rock. From rifles to radiation suits, it’s all thanks to a naked caveman hitting things with a big stone.

And as the…

Feature: Morally Corrosive

Impressions: Rust

I was hunting a deer with a rock, as you do, when I heard a voice. "We're not going to kill you." A shot cracked past my head and the deer slumped to the ground.

Garry On Garry’s Mod’s Endlessly Rising Sales Figures

Last week, Garry Newman tweeted a sales chart that backed up what we already knew: that his game Garry's Mod is extremely successful and that its sales have not slowed down since its release back in 2006. The extra detail was a little surprising though. July 2013 was the game's best month ever in terms of copies sold, the number of copies sold doubles each…
