Towns is more building site than urban centre

Fraser Brown takes a look at the drama surrounding the Steam Greenlight title, Towns. It remains unfinished months after launch, and has gained the ire of many consumers.
"It strikes me that while the positives of Steam Greenlight outweigh the negatives, it’s far from the transparent platform we wish it could be. It was a pragmatic move that allows Valve to look like a supporter of the “little guy” and get more diverse content with minimal effort. Where they should be vetting the games more thoroughly, regardless of community votes, they instead let incomplete projects get sold to unaware consumers and then, apparently, impair the developers’ ability to give a genuinely honest appraisal on the state of their title for all to see." (PC, Steam, Towns)
