Graal on Steam

It would be nice if a modified Graal client that connects to Era iPhone/ Classic iPhone was on steam. There could be the ability ability to purchase gralat packs from your steam wallet.

Every single f2p game I've seen added to steam has had a significant increase in players upon release on steam. One game i played that had only about 100-200 players online at a time increased to 2000-3000 at a time.
Valve(owners of steam) will allow games from indie developers on steam as long as they're fun, so getting Graal on there shouldn't be too difficult. Just be sure to optimize the servers before releasing it on steam :P

The pc servers wouldn't really work out yet because there is still subscription fee, but perhaps when Graal pc goes free to play they may be able to be added later.


Facebook Graal didn't get too many new players because it wasn't listed anywhere easy to see, and because it depended on players sharing it-most people used fake accounts to play Graal rather than their real ones. On steam, there is a whole new releases category, and the current selection of f2p games isn't that large.

Steam has certain quality requirements. Won't happen.

What about this new green light thing?

From my understanding players vote games to go on steam, of course you need a lot of votes still.

Graal isn't fun. Classic might change that though.

Pretty sure the only thing making that impossible, was that iOS used different account system. They don't anymore.

Classic already is fun and it's not even fully released. It's got a high standard of presentation that I expect it to be #1 or #2 PC server. I will eat my shoe, of your choice, if it does not hold a high playercount.
