Oh yeah, for sure.  Believe, me I started small with AI War and it grew from there because of what I kept adding.  First two weeks: 0 sales.  First month after that: a few thousand dollars.  End of the first year: top rated list on metacritic and $70k.  Five years later?   Modern classic and $1m.  So I've been on this ride before.  In many ways, the modern ecosystem is more similar to the original one than it has been for years, except that the vectors for spreading word of mouth are so much better now.
At the same time, the amount of people trying to put their product out there has multiplied, and the risk of drowning among the mass of games has increased. If there has been no attempt at reaching out to people with larger viewerbases, you really should get started on that.

Not on the Arcen store yet? :-)

I don't Steam, so I'll wait to grab it from there

thanks I worry way to much about things like this.

Same here, haha.   Every time one of these games comes out.

But I'll agree that the response from players looks just super right now.  The Steam forums for the game have started moving (naturally, I am watching them) and aside from technical questions and such there's been no negativity there.  It's all positive so far.  There's also a lack of anyone yelling at anyone else, which is always good when it comes to Steam forums.   And 17 reviews up at the moment, all positive so far, yay.   I havent actually gone and read them yet myself but I will in a bit.
to be fair on the review front I think about roughly half of them are from here nut yea all the normal people who put reviews have been positive also yea the steam forums been pretty pleasant so far. (it definitely helps that Chris and the gang have super responsive)

Thanks, have a vote! :)

By the way: Can you edit that entry? Maybe add the trailer instead of the alpha footage?

Unfortunately only gog personnel can edit that entry. I asked for a change but nothing happened yet. I also made a small promotional Humblestore giveaway on gog for visibility.
