Simutrans on Steam Greenlighthttp://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=575085099
We plan to move to Steam. Therefore Simutrans is in the Greenlight
process. If the game gets approved, it will be available for free
on Steam. 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 present ways of distribution, source code, binaries,
Windows-installer, and inclusion in many Linux installers will still be available
Steam is a large 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. While Steam is commercial Simutrans will be free of charge or any other for-profit activities. The free and open-source
license (Artistic License) under which it was originally released by Hajo Malthaner and in the following developed by countless volunteers requires this.
Steam users can vote for games to pass Greenlight, and if you have a Steam account, we should be very happy indeed if you did so.
