For the next day, the indie game and former Steam Greenlight project Papers, Please is $6 instead of its usual $10. You should stop reading the article and go buy the game if you're looking for a new kind of puzzle game.
Exato Games and 3909 have both received the privileged opportunity to have gamers the world around experience their highly praised titles on Valve's digital distribution platform, Steam. Both Guncraft and Papers, Please have officially launched and are available right now.
Finally, finally, finally! Reverb Publishing and Handyman Studios' emergent, action-survival game Edge of Space has officially been greenlit for Steam. Even though I already have beta access, I'll be buying the game for a second time once it releases for good measure. EoS wasn't alone in the greenlighting process, it was joined by a few other notable titles.
