Da New Guys and Das Olde Desura
« on: June 06, 2015, 07:53:27 AM »
'Da New Guys' is the only not-on-Steam game by Wadjet Eye Games, if I am not mistaken.
I own it on Desura - but the recent news suggest that Desura is going to close its doors soon. And Dave Gilbert said he would not deal with Desura any more quite some time ago - there were indeed no more Wadjet Eye games published there since 'Primordia'.

I can still download 'Da New Guys' on Desura for now - but are there any plans for getting it to Steam, in case that platform will be shut down? I think Wadjet Eye Games have proved their quality well enough not to be admitted through Steam Greenlight only?

That and EEC (still waiting on a steam sale playfirst) is the only games I have not played. I own a copy on desea but would pay for a copy on steam for porting costs.

Don't wait for Playfirst Steam sale - that will probably never happen as Playfirst PC-gaming is dead for several years already.

"Emerald City Confidential" is the first Wadjet Eye game I have played - and still my favourite even after Blackwells and Technobabylon :)
