Finally got update on the Steam situation. Our 'soon to be announced' new partner has a contact at Steam and I finally got a reply.
As trivial as it might sound - Steam won`t accept DoF as our Metacritic score is not only bad, but we don`t actually have enough reviews for an official score... http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/dawn-of-fantasy
. And Steam will not deal with Indie PC games without a proper Metacritic score at least with 60% rating.
Right now we have 3 reviews there - all with 50%+ rating - and fairly so - these reviews date to October/November - as Dawn of Fantasy was in a really messy state back then (thanks 505
So now we actually have a contact to get us on Steam without Greenlight, BUT - we would need to get a proper review, or two, or three first. And while there had been some really positive DoF reviews, we need someone from Metacritic official list to review the title...
Would someone reading this know someone who works at any of these reviewers?
Heh - the headaches I have to deal with
