Some of you may have already noticed that Steam is currently having their annual Summer Sale.
What you may not know is that Choice of Games has put up its entire catalogue on sale at a 25% discount. On top of that, they’ve put all of my currently published work up in a series of bundles, which are discounted even further.
That means you can get a bundle consisting of Mecha Ace and The Hero of Kendrickstone or one made up of Sabres of Infinity, and its sequel, Guns of Infinity for a total of 44% off!
If you haven’t had a chance to pick up any of those titles, now would probably be the best chance to nab them.
Good news: it looks like Choice of Games has managed to sort out all of the problems relating to the Steam release, and now both Guns of Infinity and its immediate predecessor Sabres of Infinity are available for purchase on Steam!
You can take a look at the Steam pages for both Guns of Infinity and Sabres of Infinity here.
I’ve got some good news, and I’ve got some bad news.
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.
Mecha Ace is now available for purchase and download on Steam!
This is kind of a huge deal for me, because I’m mostly a PC gamer, as are most of my friends: Steam is the “big one” when it comes to digital distribution platforms for me, and it’s really cool to see something I’ve made up there.
That being said, for those of you out there who don’t have Mecha Ace yet, now would be the perfect time to pick it up: it’s currently 34% off on Steam and will remain on sale until the 12th.
