Well, perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I’ve got some good news with maybe a little bit of a dark lining: both Sabres of Infinity and Guns of Infinity are going to get released on Steam.
Needless to say, I couldn’t be happier about this: a Steam release means that both IFs will be made available to millions of new potential fans, people who perhaps would have never known about my work otherwise.
The “problem” is that a Steam release also means a great deal more work for both me, and Choice of Games. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on overhauling some of the old art for Sabres (You may have noticed some of that new art gracing both the header image to this post, and the Sabres of Infinity page. Don’t worry, the existing versions will be getting an art update as well). In the meantime, Guns of Infinity has been getting a once-over by a professional copy-editor, and both titles are getting CoG’s customary kinematic text Steam trailers. This means that it could be a matter of weeks, or even months before Guns of Infinity is ready for launch. However, it also means that the finished product will be more polished and receive a wider release than it would have otherwise, and that that simultaneous release of Sabres of Infinity on Steam would introduce a whole new audience to my first published IF.
I suppose that’s more than worth the wait.
