Why the game is no more sold on Steam [Developer annoucement]
Due to a conflict between Alkemi (ie. us) and Topware, we have decided to terminate the publishing agreement for Transcripted. This termination is now subject to litigation between Alkemi and Topware. The matter is now handled by german justice and... I can't say much more than that. Hopefuly when the subject is resolved the game will be back in the store.

I'm deeply sorry to say that it means indeed that the game won't be updated for the time being.

Yeah, when trying to open the store page it should at least say that it is temporarily disabled.. It redirects back to main page without anything.

There's no way to know how and when the situation will unlock. I can imagine it's an awkward situation for actors like Steam and they deal with it in the most straightforward way. I can't blame them for not having developed a dedicated adapation of their interface for these situations.

Good luck to you guys! I hope this problem is solved soon and you can start selling this wonderfull game once again.

Thanks for the info. I hope to see your game at the store soon again.

What a ♥♥♥♥ty situation. You made a game you cant even sell. The game not being on steam right now is probably "loosing" you lots of potential income.

That's sad! It's such a great game! I hope it gets resolved quickly!

Doesn't look like, it's gonna be 'quick'. Sorry.

Is there anywhere else where we can see a changelog up to the current version? Normally we could find this on the store page in Steam.
Krobill  [developer] Apr 7, 2013 @ 4:22am 
a changelog ?

Right. Meaning - a description of all the patches or updates that have been applied to Transcripted since its release on Steam.

For an example of what I mean - This is the changelog for Borderlands 2.

Hmmm, i'm not sure we have a trace of all updates but we uploaded a patch with a few minor bug corrections something like a week after the release and we added support to a wider ranger of controlers in November I think... and... that's pretty much all. That's about then that we knew for sure that there was a big problem ahead with our publisher.

Alright, that's pretty much what I wanted to know. Thank you.

Fine game, by the way. I hope this situation resolves in your favor. Even if it doesn't though, I'm definitely looking forward to whatever your team does next.

Thanks. We certainly hope the situation resolves in our favor, though I'm pretty sure it won't be anytime soon which mean the game and pretty much any income it could bring is lost for us. We've working on a new game prototype but it's still in the really early stages of development ^^

Sad news. This is really awesome game, i have enjoyed so much playing it.
I hope it will be back on steam later this year!
