DMS ♥s Steam

Digitalmindsoft now offers a love letter to Steam, saying Steam's online service helped them recoup development costs of Men of War: Assault Squad before the World War II RTS sequel's release:

We at Digitalmindsoft wanted to take a moment and thank you for creating a platform that has completely revitalized the PC gaming market and allows us to deliver exciting content to millions of players. Never before has it been so exciting and rewarding to develop games for the PC. Hit game Men of War: Assault Squad paid for its development costs during pre-order with Steam as the largest contributor! The game continues to sell and generated more than 5 times of its costs, thanks to your ability to promptly update and maintain our game. This dedication has made it possible for us to re-invest into our company, continually support our products and strive to make bigger and better games.

A marketplace can never be free of issues, but through excellent communication and response time, you've managed to find a solution to all our requests and helped us to provide the best possible experience for our players.

Therefore we are extremely excited to see Steam growing, as well as maintain its well-deserved status as a market leader and we look forward to a continued partnership as we launch future titles on your platform.

So in the name of our company and a large part of our player base, thank you so much for your great job!

Steam has been a god send for indies. Their upfront seems a little high, but getting your game on the front page gets it in front of millions of people.

Assuming your game meets the arbitrary standards that Valve sets for Steam.

It's actually fairly difficult to get an indie game on Steam; you must have just the right combination of innovation, aesthetics, game-play, and planetary alignment or it's a no-go. (And they won't even tell you why your game was turned down.)
