Very pleased to annouce that our second AppGameKit powered PC game has been approved for launch on Steam.

Many thanks to our friends in the community here for your support during the development of our little retro bug blaster.

Well done again for the second game on Steam. Looking forward to the Mac releases to try
Hows it going on Steam? Is it much easier now they have changed the format for releasing?
The Amiga and Amos were great!

Thanks.

It's hard to say regarding Steam. I think the support is better, certainly feedback was very clear, but much slower for approval. That might be a result of them taking more time to give clear feedback.

Overall, we've been happy with what we've experienced.

Looking into Mac versions at the moment. Not being a Mac owner is a problem, but it's an area we are interested in.

Gratz on the release, I think we all know starting is easy finishing not so.

I am still torn on Steam, Some 400-500 new games a month are released despite the paywall, in fact the number has significantly increased after greenlight. http://steamspy.com/year/

As to MAC I used to go over a friends place but he recently upgraded to PC , I have since taken to running OSX and Ubuntu via VMWARE on my PC to compile MAC and Linux platforms, that might be worth looking into.

I used this for a short while before buying my MacBook http://www.macincloud.com which works ok.

[EDIT] -
Not sure what is happening with the version of the IDE mentioned where you could compile a PC or Mac app from either computer just using AppGameKit??

Oh no, you install and run OSX in a VMware virtual machine and use the OSX version of the IDE within the VM.

This is what I meant. It's on the road map, thought I saw it somewhere

My understanding is that cross-platform compiling is on the list.
