    Hey all,

    We thought we'd mix it up a bit here and try our luck getting a game on Steam. I know our new title Parallels may not be the best one to try it with, as it definitely has a "Mobile" feel to it, but hey, let's earn some hustle points :)

    Here's a quick demo we made:


    Love to hear your thoughts and if you do have a Steam account, I'd really appreciate a cheeky upvote ;)

    Thanks everyone, keep on pushin!

    Just wanted to also say a massive public thankyou to Collin of Darthy Fame for all his help and advice over the last few days, you rock man :cool:

    @Kamil Kucma - thanks - really kind of you!
    @Machine Rises - So glad you like it :)
    @Simon Crack - Legend!

    honestly, thanks everyone - really do appreciate the support - I'll be posting the numbers with screenshots on this post so hopefully we can all get a benchmark for anyone looking to go this route - it's a whole new ballgame and pretty interesting to me - just hope it can help everyone in the long run :)

    So here's the first day stats, I think this is pretty good as far I can tell, but whether we'll probably just die flat out once we lose the first day exposure etc who knows. We pressed the publish button just about 24hrs ago and it seems in that time, 12 other games have been submitted knocking us down - so I guess by tomorrow we'll be relegated to page 2.

    I've only posted a couple of tweets, a facebook post on the indie game promo group and on our page - so hardly hitting it hard :)

    I'll keep updating on progress for a while :)
    @Machine Rises - Awesome - thanks man.
