What? I thought Greenlight didn't even exist anymore! Valve has been talking about shelving it for literally the past 3-4 years - how haven't they gotten around to it yet?

They're probably waiting for some modder to remove it, then buy the rights or the modding team and pretend they removed it on their own.

 

And people will be raving about how the great Gaben delivered them from the terrors of Greenlight. ;)

I just...wow.  I wonder if he'll actually release it this time.

 

The new menu art is too clean, though.

I don't man. I've heard from a reliable source the game still has five micro issues.

600 hours of play???!! DEAR GOD WHY??? The most I have in a game is probably 120 hours, even upon completing The Witcher 3 multiple times wasn't even 120 hours.

Greenlight does not exist anymore, just FYI. They just went through eveything that was already submitted and clicked 'approve'.

Grimoire made it through long ago.

I still won't believe it until people are actually playing it.

No hope now. Valve finally closed Greenlight and now Valve Direct is happening which is going to be amazing for pc gaming. Think of it as Nintendo's seal of quality approval <3

Not only doed it look absolutely horrid but it's going to be priced at $40 with 10% off at launch so says the official page anyway. 2 hours ago it said "This game will unlock in 1 hour". Even though I'm not interested in buying this game I am interested in seeing the initial reaction for people who are interested in purchasing it, savvy?

Another user made a good point recently saying:

"I was going to buy it until I read that the dev said the game was in development for over 20 years, which is hard to believe..."

How do you all feel about that?

Hah, said 1 hour to unlock awhile ago, now it says coming soon. This is probably the most interesting game development since BattleCruiser 3000AD.
