It'd probably be a part of Steamworks, you're right.

The problem is not finding out WHICH files to upload to the SteamCloud server, but where to put them on the other side. There exist the problem that the game's directory is in a different place, or the game is a different version, or it has already existing saves that would be over-written (e.g. Unreal Tournament's tournament progress data).

well there would have to be game specific handling for the save files processing, but so long as valve offer a storage and transfer system I'm sure many games will integrate it - it's hardly the most complex task when building a game :P

Hmm...there's been no news since the initial announcement of Darwinia+. Any reason beyond the release of Multiwinia?

Yeah. It's far in the future - about half a year so far, if I recall correctly.

try raising it above the surface it's resting on, a couple of blocks of spam are usually good for that

If that doesn't work, try getting neothermic to wave a banhammer around, the cool breeze might do a better job
