Leoshi;

 

Thanks for the vote! I would say, rather, that the majority of the Steam community just hasn't been exposed to games outside a narrow range of genres. We keep revising the text to try to help them understand. :)

Because there are many projects listed 2 or 3 times in the green light list it simply got to big.

True. Most people I know don't play outside the FPS genre. Or DotA.

 

And there are almost 500 games to vote for.

 

I don't want to be negative all the time so good luck!

I actually voted for that game before I knew black chicken made it, now I know I am more excited for the game.

I guess it is because I've never spent a dime on Steam at all, they are telling me I have no privilege to vote on it. :(

Acording to this News

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/09/05/green-for-greenlight-valve-now-charging-100-fee/#more-123152

Steam now charge $100 just for a dev team to be allowed to get the chance to maybe make it on Steam via greenlight.

Even if all the Money is spend to Child’s Play charity I think its still a bad move to charge money just for the small chance to eventualy get sold at Steam.

I would have more undestanding in this if they actual would charge money to pay a person to check the things out bevore putting it on greenlight, but thats maybe just me.

 

Edit: Btw. Scheherazade is still on 0% :(

Yeah, it seems like an odd move, although...*something* had to be done about all the fake submissions, I suppose, and Child's Play is a decent charity. It doesn't appear that we need to contribute, having already been on Greenlight, although you never know.

 

Hopefully Scheherazade will eventually make it, but it's pretty clear that the majority of the Steam crowd isn't interested in this type of game yet! :)

Yea but if you want to get Academagia year 1 or year 2 on Steam you will have to pay this $100. Even with the Fanbase you build by now I think the chances you get it trough greenlight are to small to be wort the $100.

Well, I'm not a fan of ren'ai styled games. Not that there's anything wrong with them but... this particular game and it's setting just doesn't interest me for several personal taste reasons.

 

Nonetheless, I hope it sells like hotcakes! My best wishes to BCS!

Well, filtering the unavoidable trolls there are many comments that express interest in the game itself, they only have reserves about the graphic style (which I already commented on in the other thread so I will not repeat myself here).

So all in all I don't think the reception is as bad as the lack of support for a Steam sale indicates. (I wonder however how many supports are needed! several of the people commenting gave their thumbs up and it's still far from the goal...)

 

By the way, will you release the demo together with the full version or before? (even if it's true that we are only at one week from the official release...)

Fortis;

 

The demo will be out on the 14th, the same day as the release, I believe. :)

 

We're still surprised about the reaction to the art. Man, we thought you guys would be blown away, too. :)
