No EGS Exclusivity for EVERSPACE 2

A Kickstarter update from Rockfish Games discusses crowdfunding of EVERSPACE 2 and other aspects of the upcoming space exploration sequel (thanks PC Gamer). This also includes word that they will not be offering this as an Epic Games Store exclusive, taking the opportunity to throw some shade at other indie developers over "broken promises" in a full-throated endorsement of Steam:
Finally, we have noticed that since our last Kickstarter, things have changed quite a bit. Due to broken promises from indie devs all the way to AAA publishers, it is probably no exaggeration to say that trust in developers is at an all-time low, especially in regards to Epic Games Store exclusives of titles that were originally (co)funded on Kickstarter.

Ironically, one of the main reasons why we are doing another Kickstarter is to double-down on our promise that EVERSPACE 2 will launch on Steam first, no matter what. Just in case there are still any doubts, you might want to read an official interview on Gamesindustry.biz why Steam is and will be our most important digital games storefront.
