will those of us who have already bought Darwinia be able to register our boxed copies to our Steam accounts? IV: No. That would be a logistical nightmare - think about it! TSR: Will your new relationship with Valve lead to any new content, features or improvements to any of your games? IV: Certain...

Re: QUIT YA BITCHING

the only reason steam should not run for you is that your computer sucks seriously. if so, its about time you upgraded. Or you could be running linux or mac osx if its cos of an over protective firewall, you should seriously consider changing to a different firewall (not just for steam tho). Becaus...

Yes you can. It is fully supported by Cedega and as I said earlier the existing Linux client may well be extended to provide for Darwinia when the time comes. It may work on cedega, but from what I have read whenever there is a steam update there are or have been problems with it. Altho this point ...

possibly, but then again, i live in south australia so its only a possibility! i also actually like the idea of getting it over steam and playing it right after i pay for it. like you could have done when the online order and download was on the darwinia website? (without having to download steam)

Well this is certainly excellent news! Steam is a world wide system that any country can access. Is that not like the darwinia website which is world wide? which was providing sales direct with direct download? I think the main points here are: Linux users feel dissapointed that at the moment they ...

personally I'd sooner pay for the game from the maker and download it directly from a site rather than download a client to download it for me and pay someone else?! how big is steam? (I notice the installer is 1mb) comparable to the 30mb of the game? :? seems steam is just adding another 'middleman...

Great news indeed, but dropping the ability to download from the main site? What about Linux users? I know several people who would never have bought Darwinia if the option to download the Linux version hadn't existed :? This is an excellent point :) I only bought the game because I could play it o...
