No greenlight?
I don't get, how this game end up on steam, since it wasn't greenlit and it's a first developer title?

Some people submit games to greenlight, some submit it to Valve staff instead and then the staff say yes or no after playing the game and checking out if can be on steam I assume.

Probably accepted to Steam because it was such a well received iOS title.

The developer says steam asked him to bring his title here..

“Valve contacted me back in August about putting 10m on Steam,” developer Luca Redwood told me this morning. “I prioritised it ahead of the Android version and The Big Update because I thought it was going to be really easy, but it turned out to be much harder than I thought.”

@quamper, thx for the info.

It's a bit sad to caught Valve on lie. Cause this piece from developer FAQ is basicaly a lie now.

"Who should submit their games to Steam Greenlight? Is there another way to submit my game to Steam?

Steam Greenlight has replaced our previous submission process. Any developer or publisher who is new to Steam and interested in submitting their game to the platform should submit their game through Steam Greenlight."

Greenlight is far from a perfect process. I guess it's better than the proto-anarchy that was Before Greenlight, though. Think of Greenlight as a step in the journey towards gaming goodness, rather than the destination.

There are obviously still games that Valve/Steam goes and asks to be part of their collection. Particularly major retail releases don't have to go through any kind of a Greenlight process. I'm sure Valve reserves the right to request games for their platform, as happened in this case.

Notice it replaces the submission process, i.e looking for Valve's approval. The developer didn't look for Valve's approval, Valve came to him. Thus, he skipped the Greenlight process.

Can I be the first to say "who cares?"
