GR - "The developer of Frozen Synapse believes that Steam is nothing short of essential to the success of independent game developers."
Must admit I have bought good few Indie games through Steam, normally I would have not bothered with if I had not had Steam installed on the PC.
I got Terarria, Amnesia, Super Meat Boy! They should bring Overgwroth to steam!
Overgrowth is coming to Steam, as is Natural Selection 2.
Maybe these indie developers should switch to mobile devices. Lots of money to be made for stand out titles.
So the guy is saying that Steam is great for indie devs and that they help them a lot, and your advice is to not go with Steam and switch to making games for phones instead?
Personally, I hate steam. I cant see why everyone is so quick to praise it as its been nothing but problematic from my perspective. Honestly, if Gabe came to my place to see how annoying his software canbe he'd make changes. However, because of the frustrations I've had I wouldn't let the MF near my place. Steam is not used for mobile devices and developers can succeed. Lower dev costs, wider target audience, easier to develop for.
Yeah I bought minecraf...wait...
