Make Soldat on Steam!
« on: February 24, 2014, 11:03:41 am »
I love playing Soldat, but wouldn't it be cool if Soldat Could be on Steam? I think a $15 price tag and a option for group buy would be nice, I would definitely buy it! Anyone else thinking about it? I been wanting Soldat on Steam for some time now, what do you guys think? ???

There are a few steam request threads on this forum already, all i can say atm is that soldat is not ready for steam.
Some game breaking bugs need to be fixed before can think about steam (microlags, fullscreen windows 8 issue, fps issues, bad gui to name a few).

I would definitely buy this game if it were on steam. It's just perfect. No bullshit, no useless 3D, just plain fun action. You *need* to make this title available on steam.

This.

What's the point of being on an internet forum if you don't know how to read? Look what shoozza said. He gave actual reasons why it isn't on steam:

Careful with that axe, Eugene.

As it has been said many times before and as Shoozza just pointed out, unless you can download Soldat and install on any windows OS/hardware and then not have to spent 1 hour messing with settings to make it work there is not much point pushing Soldat onto steam. We would just receive a load of negative feedback which will not help the game :(

Soldat is supposed to be an indie game and Steam is just a useless middle hand. I don't see what good it would do forcing players to go via Steam and I've had trouble myself with most games I bought where I had to download from Steam. Same goes for Origin btw. I don't know wtf is happening to the game market.

Soldat is already on Desura (not that anyone cares) but I think people hope Steam will give the game additional visibility.
I actually prefer if I can install games without DRM.

Sure there are some bugs, but you could put it to "early accses"..
In this state it is allready on steam, and nobody cares about the few bugs..
AND it would help to find new bugs and to delete them

"Early Access" on 14 years old game sounds like the release is gonna happen somewhere in the next century.

Soldat is done already. Devs will just keep releasing patches and call it a day.

dont be so negative :D

if you wanna spend some time for new content, it would sounds like a re-release with big future plans 8-)
some ideas..
- steam workshop
- ^ mod tools
- new content for map makers
- ranking list system // matchmaking ,where you have with friends nice challenges :D

Meh soldat..it's dead, but this new Soldat HD, the spiritual high-res refactored remake of original Soldat game released in 2002, thats what we talking about here.

In greenlight FAQ it says even if it doesnt get accepted it still stays there..
so it means... it will kinda be on Steam anyways.. .. .

Except fixing some more important bugs those Shoozza named, there is also another matter requiring discussion.

What impression do we want to make on a newbie player who just installed the game? Such one is rather used to one-click-to-join-me-and-my-friends-to-some-server-where-we-don't-get-owned-immediately. Soldat doesn't have it and I doubt ever have it. Skill might be measured only by some system of fair matchmaking and that would require maintaining servers to perform such thing. Not to mention the whole MMR-like system, account system, other shit.

So Soldat is about to remain as it is... With a list of available servers where player has to search a place to play for himself. Picking some random one where he gets killed on the spot.

Basically, I'm a bit afraid that we won't get as many new players as we would dream to have. This is why Soldat is a previous gaming era thing. Not a casual game nor oversimplified in joining an online game.

SOLDAT is ready for STEAM.

I am a SOLDAT vet and I came back to play this update.

And I'm thinking to myself.

You guys would literally be rolling around in millions if you put this shit on STEAM

I GUARENTEE SOLDAT would make it to the Top Sellers list on the first few pages.

Price it at $15

SOLDAT would go viral!

There is only 30 people playing online right now. This is sad. There would be HUNDREDS if SOLDAT was on STEAM.

You deserve so much recognition and $$$ for this amazing, unique, no bullshit game that I spent much of my younger days enjoying.
