Doesn't matter any more, with Steam Greenlight coming out in a month.

I don't know much about programming but do you think it would be possible to create some kind of wrapper for the Steamworks API using the Construct 2 SDK? If I remember correctly this has been done in some other programing languages. I think if someday some C2 games could get on Steam, it would be nice to have the achievements and stats at least, specially since Steam Greenlight will launch soon.

For instance this wrapper is for XNA and Unity:

I'm not interested in achievements or using them in my games, but I think I'd probably put them in anyway because it would be interesting to track statistics of players (like how many get upto a specific level or use a certain feature).

Wow, I'd never heard of Steam Greenlight before. That sounds pretty great! I honestly don't care all too much about achievements or any extra features -- I mean, it'd be great to have them, but releasing without them is better than not releasing at all.

Would we NEED to incorporate their API to release it? Not sure how that all works.

[QUOTE=NugMan] Aint Desura is better choise? Looks like indie-friendlier than steam - all those mods etc[/QUOTE] Easier to get onto? Yes. More profitable? Not even close.

Nothing prevents you from submitting the game on both services though.

[QUOTE=PorkyJynx] ive read ALOT about steam, and its nothing to do with exceptions, you have to keep posting your game to them, as they usually reject them instantly without looking at them when you first apply, theyre a tiny team, read up on it :)[/QUOTE]

There right, theres games like stealth bastard deluxe and hotline miami, each game maker games and yet they've made it, you see it depends on how many votes you get not on there opinion because it you get alot of positive votes in a bit they'll look at the game and most likely accept it since it actually takes no money to post a game on steam for them they only make money, and they do it because if people want it people will pay so they wont just reject you but if your game is unapealling to the public than they wont waste there time on your game. Also yea i know im posting this like 1 year after everyone else.... man to think that they said there'd soon be a port for steam and here we are a year later, no offense

@trando101 this is an old topic which occurred before steam added their Greenlight system.
