I have not been able to get logged in for two days now. It's very frustrating. I keep trying and it won't let me get passed the captcha's.

I am behind Agustin all the way and will keep trying.

Voted, I think. Is that just affirming I would buy this game on Steam?

Yes, you just state that you would likely buy this game when released on Steam: enough people wanting to buy it -> greenlight.

Thank you, dear Boomers! You're the best. I never thanked you for your comments after the Interactive Teaser (no idea where that post is right now). Just let me tell you that we took note of everything you mentioned and we will address all your concerns (especially when it comes to the interface).

We want to turn Asylum into THE horror experience that you won't ever forget. Oh, yes <grin>

Also, I've compiled a list of promising adventures on Steam Greenlight that could use some support. Please, take a look and consider voting those that catch your interest:

Thanks!

Voted!

However for what I see many more votes are needed, at the bottom it says - This game has attained 1% of necessary positive ratings so far.

Thanks for the list!

It's not clear that the games need to reach that full 100% positive ratings as much as it's important to get out in front of the pack in terms of votes. If Steam is ready to greenlight another 10 games in (for instance) two weeks, they will probably take the leaders, even if none have actually achieved 100% yet.

Still, it's clear that votes from the adventure community for adventure games that are on the Greenlight list are extremey important.

The math involved here is very obscure. My assumption is that votes are slowly validated over time. Even if thousands and thousands of users vote on the first day, the game still wouldn't be approved.

Also, I think that positive rankings will grow exponentially. This is just a hunch. In other words, it will take us a lot of work to reach, say, 10%, but beyond that point it should be no-brainer to become approved.

Things I've noticed:

- Being in collections can be a HUGE boost. In case you don't know, you can create your own collection and pick any games you want (just like I did above). Many of these are followed by thousands of users, and the simple fact of being collected can increase the awareness of the title.

- Favorites are a boost as well. It's always best to vote up and include in favorites the games you like.

- Comment. Always comment, even if it's a "Yay!".

All these things can help to increase the popularity of game.

We seem to be doing OK so far, but other terrific adventures are stuck in 0% (ie: The Sea Will Claim Everything). I'm honestly very worried about this: even a well-established publisher like dtp couldn't include directly a high profile game like Gray Matter and is forced to resort to Greenlight. It makes sense as I was told by a Steam executive that "adventures don't sell".

We REALLY need to work together and help as many games as we can, otherwise I'm afraid the future of the genre on Steam looks very grim frown
