Default dof ain't on steam but?

So dof dev says steam won't accept dof because of lack of reviews and low ratings? Well here is a game called FRAY and it's on steam.

Did you check just how much Advertising theyre doing ?
It seems they got quite the Money in the Back considering how many Reviews on Renown Spots they Received in such a short time .....


But well I guess this never crossed your Mind

A lack of reviews and low scores (resulting in a low metacritic score) was the reason given when one of our contacts asked someone at Valve directly why Dawn of Fantasy wasn't approved yet.

As I see it, there are several ways to get your game on Steam
  1. You have a publisher pushing the game
  2. Someone at Valve likes your game
  3. You've struck a deal with Valve
  4. You've submitted a demo of your game to Steam before release and they think it will do ok
  5. Your game has a high enough metacritic score
  6. You've spammed the Steam submission until they give up
And soon there will be Steam Greenlight.

I don't know how Fray got on Steam, I'm guessing they made their application months before release using a demo (which would be expected to be buggy) and Valve thought it would be a decent enough game if the bugs were fixed. However they did it, good luck to them.

As for us, it's not like we can submit a pre-release demo so for now, we're trying the option of getting more reviews to boost our metacritic score, which has the added benefit of getting word out about Dawn of Fantasy. We've already heard back from a number of reviewers to let us know that they will be writing their reviews soon.

Once we get a few reviews in and our metacritic score goes over 60, we will resubmit to Steam. We will also use Steam Greenlight to give ourselves another chance when the time comes.

If neither of those work, we will consider other options.

I never tought I would agree with something you write but for a change your right
Steam sure has some issues with their leadership to be putting crap like that on but refusing Dof .....

Never said Fray's bugs were fixed just that the buggy version might have been approved on the assumption the bugs would be fixed.

We definitely agree that DoF should be on Steam

One week to go till Steam greenlight goes live http://steamcommunity.com/greenlight/ - I plan to get DoF up there on day 1, after that it`ll be up to our community to vote and help us get up there.

And ouch - that`s probably the lowest metacritic user score ever... even Stronghold 3 did much better.

To sun: bah, I pointed it out to make a point, bah- I'm not a private detective that can secretly peek at their finances - bah, you're vain.

To everyone else normal: And the new steam community stuff is pretty excellent...for dof and etc
