Title: TM on PC
Post by: Craig on June 02, 2014, 12:54:11 AM
Over the next couple of months we will be going through the process to try and get Total Miner onto the PC.

We will try to do this via Steam Greenlight.

I will document our progress here.

If the game is given the greenlight, then there is probably about 2-3 months of work to be done to port the game to PC, and then another 2-3 months work to make it "work well" on the PC, as in, make the game feel like it was developed for PC playing, not console playing. These changes of course will not affect the console version.

This work will be done at the same time 2.04 - 2.4 are being developed.

Total Miner is now on Steam Greenlight.

Go vote it up please, and get all your friends to vote it up.

Even if you don't PC game, it will help us continue to update the 360 version.

Steam Greenlight is not looking good. After 12 days we are only 25% of the way to the top 100 games. We need to be in the top 50. Most of the votes we got were in the first 4 days, now we are only getting a handful of votes each day. Looks like it's not going to happen.

We received the following email on friday:


Your title, "Total Miner," has been Greenlit!

To continue, you will need to complete the necessary digital paperwork to sign up as a new Steamworks Partner.


At the end of that process, you'll have an appID and account in the Steamworks Developer Program with access to the necessary SDK, documentation, and configuration website to prepare your application for launch.


Sincerely, The Steam Business Team


This email means that Total Miner is coming to PC via the Steam distribution system.

A big Thank You to everyone who voted, you've helped keep Total Miner alive. We appreciate that very much. For me personally, Total Miner is my passion and I want to see it get better and better. This is a big step forward in keeping that dream alive.
