Vote for Cognition on Steam Greenlight!
« on: August 30, 2012, 12:04:14 PM »
Steam's new submission process, Greenlight, has launched today, and we need your help to make sure Cognition becomes available on Steam! Head over to the Cognition page on Greenlight and vote up Cognition!

How it works: Games submitted to Steam now get voted on by the community to see which games will be made available for sale on Steam. When a game gets enough votes, it's in!

So once again, we need your help to make it happen! All it takes is a click over to the Cognition page and a click on the Thumbs Up button to vote us up*! If you've got time for one more click, we'd love it if you could share the page on Facebook or Twitter, too, and help spread the word!

As always, your support is an essential part of our success, and we know we've got the greatest & most supportive fans out there who can make this happen. Thank you for everything and let's get this thing on Steam!  ;D

(*you do need a Steam account to be able to vote)

4,624 unique visitors! 424 favorites! 82 comments and just about every one of them positive!

....I really wish I knew what any of this was going to mean in regards to our positive ratings and relative chances of getting approved to be on Steam, but it's still pretty exciting in the meantime!

Threw my hat in the ring with a thumbs up vote!  Why does it still say 0% of needed votes tho?  Tons of favorites, tons of visitors - 0% of needed votes?!?!  THAT'S WRONG!  You should let 'em know, they're vote counter thingy is SERIOUSLY busted  ::)

Steam wants to watch the Greenlight feature for a while to see how many votes things get and the median level of traffic to expect before they set "needed" votes. I'm pretty sure no one has any percentage points right now because it's out of infinity. XD

So don't worry. You're making a difference. Though like Katie said, if you want to share it on Facebook, you'll make a much bigger one. A lot of my friends who have never heard of Cognition before have said that it looks really cool and they're looking forward to it and one even reposted the link. This game speaks for itself, so getting the word out is very effective. XD

Thanks guys!

Yeah--I've only seen the percentage go up a tiny amount for a few games, which seems to relate about 1000 Favorites = 1%. Which is just a huge amount to expect for most indies, so I can't imagine that will stay the same for long.

We've got over 13K unique views, and over 1.1K favorites! Thanks everyone, and please keep up-voting and spreading the word!

And hopefully we'll eventually know exactly what we need to hit to get approved to be on Steam in all this. :)

Steam officially "greenlit" the first ten games earlier this week. We'd love to be in the next crop if possible--keep voting us up and spreading the word! :)

I voted within minutes of our project going live on Greenlight, though I'm not sure if my vote actually counts any more now that Steam allows project creators to add co-contributors to admin the projects.

If you voted before you were added the data stays.

The tricky part is that you not only need a steam account, you also require to have purchased a game through steam to be able to vote (as in, to have your account be able to vote).

Also a Day 1 voter, naturally.  ;D

Yeah, the part about your account has to have purchased a game is a bit annoying, but I can see why they did it (i.e., to prevent people making a ton of spam accounts to up their ranking).

It is crazy unfair to me, make it a time thing instead. There are so many free games with such large fan base (TF2, for example) that most of them just register for that one game alone, they get to be steam members for years yet their vote on greenlight doesn't count.

Dungeon Defenders
Tribe

That would be a good way to do it--no idea how difficult that is to implement, but yeah, that would be much more fair! Plus there's something to be said for letting people who haven't yet bought something on Steam get the chance to say, "But I WOULD buy this".
