Here's a quick FAQ on Transcendence and Greenlight:

Q: What is Steam Greenlight?
A: Steam Greenlight is the process required to sell games on the Steam marketplace. If enough people vote on a Greenlight title, Steam will contact us and approve Transcendence for distribution on Steam.

Q: Why do we want to be on Steam?
A: Steam is the largest marketplace for PC games. Many people discover games on Steam, so being on Steam will help to get more Transcendence players.

Q: Will Transcendence on Steam cost money?
A: Probably. My current plan is to bundle CC and EP into the Steam package and sell it for ~$9. But these issue won't be worked out until (unless) Transcendence gets greenlit.

Q: What does this mean for non-Steam people?
A: Nothing. The core game will continue to be free and the Multiverse will continue to sell expansion packs on the Multiverse. All Transcendence content on Steam will be available through the Multiverse also.

Also done. I probably actually *will* buy it on Steam as well if it gets through....since I've gotten all my expansions for free thus far (giveaway + beta testing EP).

Edit: One thing I'd add is the fact that this is a game that's been updated and revised over a long time, with constant improvements and the like. That's one of the major selling points for Transcendence: the intricacy of a game that's been tinkered with for so long.

Also done! Already seems like it's gathering support on Steam. I remember talking about getting Transcendence greenlit back when Steam was first launched; now with the excellent expansions and some of the nicer UI additions and special effects George has added post 1.1, I think we stand a chance of really going somewhere here!

George -- now that's it out on steam, is it also time for reddit post(s) (on /r/Games and the like) -- the community could come up with some material together, so that it's not a "self-promotion post"?

They said I can't vote at this time. Have to buy something. Is there any other way to vote? Fixed income and I just paid all my bills.

'fraid not. Steam accounts only get voting access to Greenlight after buying something. It's an anti-astroturf system.

I've got a couple of questions! I ran into the greenlight link just after I bought eternity port and that raises a couple of questions...
1. How will you handle people who already own the game? It just so happens that Transcendence is the only non steam game I've got. Would I have to buy the game again?
2. AFAIK, it's perfectly compatible with wine - which is how I play now. If launched on steam, would it be windows only or would you be doing a WINE wrapper of some sort?

I don't particularly mind buying again. It's a small price to pay to have all my games in one place but I'm currently linux only and that's a concern...

Will you be integrating Multiverse into the Steam edition? There's some functional overlap w/r/t updates, DLC, high scores, etc. When you first announced Multiverse I had thought that it was intended to be a Steam-like ecosystem for Kronosaur games.
