TheSHEEEPI'm pretty sure that Liam has reserved half an hour each week to come up with new Wine puns.
Come for the news, stay for the puns.

Cerulean Days, a Visual Novel following the internet being shut down after a biological attack

Quote... a deadly biological attack took place so the government shut the internet down ...

Is anyone else scratching their noggins over this plot point?
Well I did simplify it a bit

From what I remember of the intro, it was something about the internet being used during the attack and the government has gone wild to lock the island down.

I honestly don't understand how anyone can grumble at the price. This was a professionally made game, just like any other. The tech behind it is mostly meaningless against what the game itself is worth.

Putting a Linux game on Steam: Missing Executable - a common pitfall for game devs

koderThe setting itself is actually a bit of Gotcha, because Linux builds work for all Beta and generated keys *except* actual purchase. That's how it slipped my attention - we have quite a few Linux players testing the game, but they all had keys, so this didn't affect them.


I'm really glad Liam pointed the solution out for me, I lost half of previous night trying to figure it out.
Always happy to help

From what I remember when I last spoke to Valve about it, there's other documentation developers have that are more in depth. Edit: It's this page that has some extra details, added a link to the article.

As for the tag, we have a Game Dev tag this was missing, it's now on.

liamdawe...we're waiting on confirmation about getting a shot from Steam's own developer section which likely is confidential.
I have released a game half year ago on Steam and every page in administration has noted in footer that it is under NDA (or something similar).

That said, I did some "ducking" and found tutorial videos on steamworks are public, so maybe take a screenshot from those? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoNH-v6aU9Q
Yeah that video is quite old now and by the looks like what a developer showed me, possibly a little different now too. However, the basics of it seem the same, so I will add a link to the article - thanks!

Shepard62FR: I'm very aware of everything relating to SteamDB. Not entirely sure what you're getting at, we're waiting on confirmation about getting a shot from Steam's own developer section which likely is confidential.
