    Only one traditional fantasy party-based RPG among the lot, and only one not funded through kickstarter. Time to start knocking on those publisher doors, Henkel, or else go indie.

  5. Guido needs Jesse Cox, Dodge and Roguey to make a video for him.

    (OK, one of those names was kind of random.)

    Steam Greenlighters truly are some of the dumbest people on the planet. There is no "PC master race" and yes I'm aware Yahtzee coined that term ironically.

    Not really, no. Not to forget the "early access", which means that you don't even have to complete the game. Just do an early access and run with the money.

    So Guido's blobber made it through greenlight without funding or even a demo in place. There's hope for Grimoire!

    there most certainly is a pc master race, but much like the gentle cheese-eating neanderthal they have been almost entirely replaced by untermenschen like you and yahtzee

    Wow, Deathfire KS is going to fail miserably. Re: Greenlight, it's a joke now, anyway. GabeN wasn't happy with the way it turned out so now they just approve a hundred games every other week.

    This will do more damage in the long-term, since more shovelware will likely end up decreasing confidence when it comes to blind-buying in sales. Jeff Vogel wrote a blog about how mass-Greenlighting means getting on Steam isn't the windfall it once was.

    You mean this? http://jeff-vogel.blogspot.co.il/2013/11/marketing-dumb-luck-and-popping-of.html

    That's not what his post was really about. He only mentioned "mass Greenlighting" once in passing. The post made a more general point about how in the long run, easy money "windfalls" always run out and that devs should consider the strategy of digging in for the long haul, like he did.

    The App Store is not successful at all because there are too many apps on it.

    This is one of the things they didn't do right, restricting tons of very good games because of stupid elitist criteria. They did exactly the right thing for once.

    Vogel complains no matter what. The 'long haul' strategy is to... wait for it... produce more games. Not going to be able to coast on one title your entire life. Unless you're Notch.
