If KS was on Steam would you buy it?

Post by Sk3tch » Mon Jun 25, 2012 2:39 am

I was thinking about it and here are my personal thoughts.

I like the functionality of Steam and being able to run all of my gaming from there, so even though the game is free if they through a paid version up on Steam for like 5 or 10$ I would buy it. It would let me donate to the creators of this great game (I know I can donate to them already but this way would just feel more official (At least to me anyways)). Plus they could through in achievements which I am always a sucker to. Stuff like Complete each characters good or bad endings or maybe 100% the game. Or maybe they could throw in the soundtrack as a free DLC.

I don't know, what are your thoughts?

All i know, is that if I woke up tomorrow and saw that KS was on Steam I would buy it in a flash.
What about you guys, yes? no? Why? And if no what would it take to turn you into a yes?

i think there's a way to allow steam to launch games that are not available on steam, just so you could play the game and access the steam community at the same time (or show your friends you're playing so and so game).

lots of devs from the KS team (namely Aura and Hivemind) have stated that they don't care to make money off the game though, one way or another. mainly due to how complicated it would be to split the profits between all the devs, as well as some other stuff i dunno about.

That's a question i can't answer ... cause if i had to pay for it at first .. i would have passed it over i think ... now that i put a good 70 or so hours into it of course i'll pay but if it wasn't free and i had to pay to play then no i would have passed it over for something else

Yes, without a doubt
When the war, has been won
And our march home begins
What awaits has not yet been revealed
What was won? what was lost?
Will our deeds be remembered?

Yes, but seeing as 4ls are even refusing willing donations... *sighs*

In a world where KS wasn't available as a free download, most certainly.

It has a better story than any of the crap titles that have been coming out for the past 10 years - 5 times over, no less.

Tis a free game and the devs even refuse to accept donations, why buy a game when the creators wish it to be free?

I think this thread is a waste of time. Why can't you agree with the dev's wish for it to be freely available?

Nothing would turn me into a yes.

Steam's a good way to advertise KS though.

Don't forget that Steam has some free-to-play games, so KS can be on that category

This is quite true.

I kinda like that its gotten most all of its promotion through forums and word-of-mouth, though. It makes it seem more genuine for it to work its way into the lexicon of media naturally rather than being over-hyped. When you recommend it to someone, you don't feel like you're just spitting out someone else's review buzzwords, rather you're offering them something you found and felt affected enough to tell them about.

But what happened with ARMA 2 and the DayZ mod
The mod was so popular that made ARMA 2 to have more sales since the mod was out that before that

No I would not.
In fact, to undermine the establishment, I would repeatedly pirate it and delete it to make Valve and 4LS lose money. Each time someone pirates it leads to one lost sale, so if I continued it for long enough, there would be negative sales, which would lead to a net loss.
