    Seeing the picture and the title, I first read the description as: "Explore the lost nuns of the Nebula..."

    Being released 18 months ago and still only having 19 reviews tells a certain story...

    And hasn't been pushed by anyone either.

    Word of mouth about good games travels pretty quick.

    Word of mouth only gets started if anybody sees your game in the first place though, the tidal wave of shit on steam means that if something doesn't make it past the popular new releases algorithm on steam 99.999% of steam users will never see your game.

    You used to be able to play it free online. It was P2W, but that might have changed in the steam version.

    A sequel with a greater multiplayer focus was in development, but it's probably abandonware now.

    Are you saying that the 'new releases algorithm' is the one-all, be-all method of pushing games now?

    That developers can't, for example, push it on social media? Or register on like-minded forums?

    And is it completely impossible for someone to browse Steam and come across this game without the algorithm to help along?

    Because all of those options exist, plus more. And yet the game has virtually zero eyes on it.

    So either it's not worth our time, or it's been abandoned... and even a good abandoned game would have people talking about it.

    No just that for small indie developers with no following it can be hard to get journalists/streamers to play your game specially for turn-based affairs that don't appeal well to the modern A.D.D. youtube audience. If you can't get previews/reviews going then basically all you have is visibility which is much worse these days. People used to talk about getting on steam being the golden ticket before 2015 because you were basically guaranteed money nowadays getting on steam means nothing.

    I am sure these developers probably did push it on social media, I'll let you google that.

    Kek, browse steam until you find the game without searching for it by name, I'll hold my breath.

    So there is no room for finished and released products in your dichotomy?

    The median earning for games on steam is probably under a 1000 just because something didn't achieve success doesn't mean it's a bad game just that steam is kind of in a winner takes all situation at the moment.

    No Rondo, no buy.

    This game looks like it could be an ok game in the genre(when it's out of EA at least). Anyone tried it?

    The first of Konami's Anniversary Collections, Arcade Classics:





    What's the point of having separate versions at this point? Why don't they just include both local versions for everyone.

    Because it's Konami, they did the same for ZOE2.

    Bought this today and it's everything I wanted it to be. If you like tough SNES looking platformers with a bit of a puzzle element I highly recommend it. Also great synth tunes.

    Sometimes to deal with the difficulty of being alive, I need to believe there is a possibility that life is not real.

    Before someone asks it: No, that's not the longest title for a 'game' ever.

    Not even close.
