    Thumbs up Darkout on Steam Greenlight

    Hey guys,

    My name is Adrian Banninga and I am the game director of Darkout. Iím here to ask for any support from the community to help us gather as many votes as possible for our game on Steam Greenlight. As you may know it is a new system and it really makes it very difficult for any new Indie developer try8ign to break into the games market on Steam right now.
    We have been on steam since this weekend and though we have had a great response we still need quite a few votes to be greenlit by Steam. Please take a moment to check out the game and leave an up vote if you like what you see.

    We'd really appreciate your support!

    We just put up a new trailer as well, check it out and let us know what you think!

    Thanks for everyone in the community who have supported us this far!

    Adrian, Team Darkout

    Thx for the positive feedback guys!

    We are using the torque 2D engine, but have had to add our own lighting and random world generation system including a new collision system to handle all the terrain etc.

    the 'glowy' stuff is all the light sources and emissive plants we have where you do have light we want it to look as cool as possible in contrast to the dark areas in the game.

    We also just launched our Indiegogo campaign in anticipation of the Beta release coming soon and also we need all the help we can get until we release on Steam.

    Thanks every single vote helps!

    Steam greenlight is really making it difficult to get on Steam these days, we had great momentum and then the weekend hit and it seems like the whole place has gone dead quiet. It’s very frustrating but we keep on going
