Help Lux Delux get Greenlit

Post by dustin » Fri Mar 22, 2013 2:46 pm

Steam is the largest distribution network and store for PC games. Their service is quite excellent too IMHO. They have a newish user-voted system to decide which games they add, called greenlight.

I've just submitted Lux Delux to the greenlight system. The goal is to get enough votes to get distributed by Steam. This would result in tons of new players, like triple the number of total players ever really.

Lux needs your help! Please vote for us in the steam greenlight system. (you'll need a steam account).

Do you have to buy an item, or can it be gifted to you? Cause if they can be gifted, I may have a cheap workaround...

I think you have to buy something to buy from the market, hence the gifting.

STEAM STYLE


***** Just now
Fast play, easy to learn. Addictive interactive games with real people should cost more than this. DO IT!

edit]

if you want to steam cheap this costs a dollar and you get a vote:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/221640/

superhexagon or something.

then you can vote, even llamas can vote for a dollar!

Hmm, I wasn't aware you had to buy something there to vote. That kinda sucks.

But it also sorta makes sense. Otherwise, we could all make a dozen accounts and get Lux in in a couple of days.

You don't need to buy something new per se, rather than you must have bought something at some point and still have the serial code for it.

My account is still up since my Counter Strike days.

Things look good so far. With 6 pages of comments we have:
~90% in support of
~9% neutral
~1% against/spam

There's one thing I'd like to bring up though, and that's achievements. Multiple people have mentioned it and I was wondering if that was being considered as a feature, and if so what would said achievements be?

I guess that's like when you get a silver star for playing a hundred games. Though more of them. Weekly medals and seed medals, MOTW awards, that sort of thing. Maybe a medal for having a certain win percentage too? Not sure how I feel about more awards though.

According to the stats, Lux has 1,300 yes votes on greenlight. While the average for the top 50 games is 39,500 yes votes. So we have some distance to cover still... if you have friends that play on Steam, please share the greenlight link with them.

We're up to 2,476 yes votes now. Progress, but still a ways away.

I'm working towards directing the iOS users to vote as well...

Hahahaha, I was reading some of the comments on Steam, and a guy said, "AI yo momma warned you about, I'm sold."

Just thought that was a good laugh and true.

(Six weeks since last official update. What's the current vote total? ETA for approval?)

3,224 yes votes currently. 20% of the way into the top 100 games, so 80% of the way still to go...

iOS retina update is coming in the next month or two. That's the next thing that I hope will twitch the needle up.

I realized today how easy it easy for people that already have a steam account to vote Lux for Greenlight. I asked around in a couple counter strike servers today, as well as asking all my steam friends. I think I got a nice handful of votes today, so I am going to continue spreading the word in the Counter Strike GO community. If you have friends on steam link them to the Lux Delux Greenlight page and ask them to vote. Tell them that you would really appreciate it and maybe tell them a bit about why and what you like about this game... It took me about 3 minutes to get 5 votes today before work.

Update: I think I got a good 8 or 9 votes and I may be getting a couple people to buy the game as well. I am going to continue doing this after work today in different online servers.

That's awesome plummy, thanks! I guess it really is about getting the word out to existing Steam users. So anyone else who's active in steam games, please follow plummy's lead.

I just got off work early so I'm back at it. Dustin keep an eye on the vote count, because i am having a great time advertising the greenlight and talking about the game. :) It's getting some really good comments in the games that I am playing and I'm getting people to vote and even send messages to their friends. I created a bind in game so I only have to hit one key to type "http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/f ... =133112577 Please help this game get noticed on Steam Greenlight! Simply follow the link and click yes! It takes only 5 seconds and would be greatly appreciated!". After doing this I found that it helps to talk over the mic and say things like, "let me know after you vote so I can personally thank you". Just tips for anyone else that might have other steam games!

Greenlighted, eh? Bravo.

(Surely, that'll fix everything.)
