<img style="padding-right:3px;" align="left" src="http://www.dawnoffantasy.com/icons/photoicon.png" />Today Steam launched a Greenlight project - a voting system to help Indie games get on Steam. And getting DoF on steam is absolutely essential for our future as a company and to make sure Dawn of Fantasy continues to expand and improve. If you have a Steam account - please help us and vote for us.

We`ll keep you on the loop on our progress - and thank you for you support!

Yeah - that`s our plan to connect steam API with our current CD key database.

Not exactly sure how as this is domain of our programmers - if your interested I can get a more detailed explanation tomorrow. But as I understand when DoF comes out on Steam, all you do is uninstall the original client, and install it through the Steam client, when you go to Purchase there will be a field to enter your original CD key that you with the original client.

Sorry, ppl... but steam - i reall dont like that platform. Hope i wont need it to play DoF, ever. Since i would have to take my hat, and wish a good life then...

This way, or the other. Good Luck, folks :) (at least i could put DoF to my favorites)

When DoF gets onto steam, will the game be on sale?

Konstantin Fomenko

To be honest I`m not sure about Steam pricing, it might be on a regular 29.99$ since Steam usually enforces prices and decides when to put the game on sale. Also I guess they won`t include any special items like we do in our store, but again - it might be, I`m just not sure at this point as we can`t get any replies from Steam.

im so dissapointed! i just wanted to buy this game... and then?! u sell this influence points crap?
im so sad that u destroy this awsome idea of a game with this "buy to win" items...

SpeedKiller - DoF is NOT a pay to win game. Only 5% of our players use micro-transactions, and while it allows them to get some extra units, it in no way effects other players as during PvP we match only even player armies against each other. Players who choose to buy crowns to invest into additional units will only be matched against similar players with same army/town strength. So while 5% (a small minority) of players chooses to Pay, they don`t Win anything.

And I`m really starting to debate removing this system altogether, as it`s just giving DoF bad rep, as everyone assumes PayToWin.

@Speedkiller

Just so you know
Influence Points can be Aquired by doing repeatable Quests and of course also by laying Siege on NPC Citys, by doing PvP or by doing normal Questline.

Simply said its not actually needed to buy Influence for Real Money
It makes life Easyr of course because you can speed up your progress

however
as Influence Points are an common currency you wont have any advantage against an player in PvP even if you paid real money for your influence.

Army STR is matched up for PvP so if you actually needed 2 hours to complete your Army or if you needed 1 hour because you speeded up with influence
wont matter at all during the actual battle :)




Pay to Win is simply sooo far off in this case ....



edit:
@Kon

To offer my Independent Opinion even if its not worth that much :P

I think you basicly got 3 Choices in this

1. Implement some larger Benfits which come at higher Crown Prices while making Crowns Cheaper to Buy so this Stuff can be Acquired only by Crowns or very Hard Work :P (For example an Premium Account which offers Increased Ressources Gain or stuff like Army Points Increase for Limited Time which give you an Additional Army Slot for an limited Period of Time and of course also costs considerable amount of Crowns)

2. Make Crowns much harder to gain ingame so people actually feel a greater benefit from buying them (Tough this will then actually promote the bad Repuation which is also why I personally would dislike it ^^)

3. Remove the Entire System and make it an Ingame only Currency (Question then would be how you Replace it because many people dislike if DLCs or other stuff which is Buy Only Showed up. But I doubt that its a good choice for a Company to remove an source of Income just like that so maybe it would make sense to replace it with an Premium Account which you can Buy for certain time periods and which will simply increase your income rates and rewards this would make it far easyr to explain upfront and would those mostly dissipate the pay to win rumors)




well just my two cents ;)

Thanks Vind!

Looks like Greenlight traffic is really slowing down for all projects, and it`ll be up to us to spread the word and invite people to vote.

With 6% (almost 7%) we are in a pretty good place already. Hoping we`ll get to the top 20 before traffic to Greenlight completely stops - I got a feeling that should be sufficient to get DoF on Steam.

well they themself said that they have no idea where to place the measurement here
and that they will get Games in dependence on the actual placement of the game compared to other Games :)

so if its a top place it should be fine :)

First 10 games have made it on Steam today. With the lowest score being 14%.

So with these 10 off the list, DoF is like in 18th spot right now. Hopefully we`ll get 2-3 more % over the next couple of weeks - and looks like we just might make on Steam in early October:):)

Thanks but not quite there yet:)

Steam should announce the next batch of games to make it later today - so I guess we`ll know in a few hours. Fingers crossed!

DoF didn`t get greenlit this time around, so looks like we should make it in the next round. Guessing either Nov 15th or 30th - Steam haven`t announced the date for the next round.
The worst, and I guess the best part - We were just 1 spot away from making it this round, but looks like we`ll lead the pack for the next round.

Looks like the next batch of games will be greenlit November 30th - Read more here (http://steamcommunity.com/games/765/announcements/detail/1315309682989989529)

As Dawn of Fantasy is currently sitting in the #2 position for games to be greenlit, we should be in that batch.

Hopefully this will allow us to get Dawn of Fantasy in the Steam Christmas sales, but at the very least we should be on Steam by early next year.
