Simutrans on Steam Greenlight
Simutrans plans the move to Steam, as a free
game. The distribution platform might help new players to get to know the game, and those who already play the game and also use steam an easier way to keep Simutrans up to date. If you don't use Steam, don't worry, all other ways of distribution, source code, binaries,
Windows-installer, and inclusion in many Linux installers will still be available.
Steam is a large, comercial game distribution platform, that means they sell games online, provide downloads that are started from within Steam. Steam is avaible for Windows, Mac-OS, and Linux (SteamOS). Greenlight is Steam's procedure to get games to the platform that do not have a large publisher behind them. I.e, indie-developers or open source. Steam users can vote
for games to pass Greenlight, and if you have a Steam account, we should be very happy if you did so. +Hayden Read
