<img style="padding-right:3px;" align="left" src="http://www.dawnoffantasy.com/icons/photoicon.png" />Really exciting news today - Dawn of Fantasy was Greenlit by Valve earlier today! After three long months, over 150,000 hits and almost getting Greenlit over a month ago, we have finally made it! We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who voted for us, and especially the countless individuals who helped spread the word and make this possible! And now it`s time for our team to run up some overtime - as we`ll aim to get Dawn of Fantasy on Steam with-in two weeks.

Getting on Steam is a huge deal for Dawn of Fantasy, our company, and for our players as well! There is no denying that Steam is the largest PC distribution platform, and we expect to increase our sales revenue ten-fold. What that means for the game? We can hire new staff, pay our current staff and continue working on improving and adding new features to Dawn of Fantasy - for the years to come!

At the same time this should address the biggest flaw in DoF (and no it`s not pathfinding) - our small player base. And looks like it`s about to explode! With higher number of players the game world should feel much livelier, there will always be someone to fight with or against, and our PvP design should finally start to make sense. Especially with Seigeworks release early next year and new PvP and world domination gameplay it should be lots of fun!

Another benefit to our players - on the day of our Steam release we are honoring our pledge and adding all of our CD keys distributed in the past both to Steam and Desura clients. So whatever network you prefer you`ll be connection to your friends. All of your progress will carry over shall you choose to reinstall on Steam or Desura.

And in conclusion - I wanted to share some other exciting developments in our efforts to market and build the player population. Get ready to welcome hundred, if not thousands of new settlers and warriors even before Dawn of Fantasy launches on Steam. This and next week Dawn of Fantasy is promoted on Impulse network, that`s getting us an immediate boost of new players. In addition we have teamed up with Groupees bundle to invite thousands of new players that will be joining us this weekend and next week - please make the new guys feel welcomed!

Just discovered this game and I really don't like buying PC games outside of STEAM if I can avoid it, so I am super glad to hear it got green-lit! Eagerly awaiting released as I will be buying it same day!

So if I understand this correctly....I could buy the game today and once it releases on steam I can just use the CD Key I got now to add it to my steam games?
If this is indeed true I will be getting it ASAP ^_^

I was playing at a local gaming center and they banned the two accounts I had used to login, over $5k in games banned just because I was playing at the local gaming center. When I asked why they said because it's the rule and then pointed me to some bs fine print on their website. I will never use steam/valve again. It's really sad that you all went with them because if you do a quick look they have done this to thousands of people. They are just a bunch of greedy (BLEEPS)

Very glad to hear about this news, congrats to Dawn of Fantasy team on making it to Steam. I know I will definitely be adding it to my steam collection and joining in on the (hopefully) new influx of players. Again, congratulations guys, you all deserve it.

They'd Said this before, but if you dont want to use steam, I believe that you can just use the game standalone, so if you are a steam hater, then dont use it, just use the game like you normally do.

I have a product key for Dawn of Fantasy, but I've been waiting for the Steam launch in order to add it to my Steam library. How do I go about getting my Steam key?

(Or is the same product key going to work with Steam now? It did not work previously when I tried to activate it on Steam.)

It`ll be the same product key, and no you can`t add it on Steam until the game is released on Steam later this month. You can just install our client for now and start playing - all your progress will automatically transfer to steam once you reinstall the game with the Steam client.
