Thanks! :-)

The steam launcher/install is all figured out yeah. Their install/patch system is pretty slick.

Playing thru Steam is totally optional, of course - you can still play as normal with the version you download from the DW website itself.

Congratulations Sam, its been a long time coming, but definitely worth the wait. As always, you have my support and I am sure the rest of the player base during the Grand Opening to help with new players. We all hope this is a huge success because you deserve it for all the time and hard work you have put into it.

Yeah- I will definately look out for new players and help anyone to get started. Just getting together a few decent cars to give away, and set up a squad to scout with new players who are in in the (UK) daytime when there's not many players in.

Awesome. I'll probably download the steam version so it is displayed in my list of games and in the steam statistics showing how many people play it.

Will subs and CHR be purchasable via Steam Wallet or will it still be from the website?

Will there be Steam Achievements?

Steam collector cards?

I know those 2 things are important to some steamys and drive sales. I've bought a cheap game before knowing I can make back what I spent selling the collector cards. And I've played F2P games solely for that reason but most of those done seem to offer the cards

Might be worth organising a few community events on release, help the newbies settle in.

Yeah, some of them refer to themselves as "achievement chasers" and buy even the worst games just to get achievements. And they admit it freely. Personally I'll play a bad game if I can make a profit from it. I got one not long ago for 98 cents and made $1.25 off the collector cards. Although playing the game for 3 and a half hours to profit 27 cents is pretty stupid.

Basically the 2 versions will co-exist: if you're running the Steam version then purchases are all via steam wallet whereas if you're running the version from the DW website they're all via PayPal.

I definitely want to do achievements and collector cards, yes. But not an immediate priority - I don't particularly want to drum up more traffic than the regular Steam publicity will produce,  at least until I know that the servers won't struggle

One thing I have come to realise is that gamers are a very varied lot, and enjoy quite different things. I'm not a collector/achiever type myself but its quite a common approach

I have 2 races ready to roll... Just a bit short of organisation time (for some reason my wife thinks making nursery is more important than playing darkwind).

Funny that - I wonder why :-p

GEEk Events has Hammer Time lined up, we could schedule that to fit in with the Steam launch

It's the biggest (by far) "app store" for PC and Mac games. So it's a big opportunity to get discovered by lots of new players :-)

I think games such as XCom have helped "normalise" turn-based play so I'm hopeful that it will be broadly well received. I'm sure there will be plenty of negative comments too, but that comes with the territory.
