We went for the “fairness upgrade” approach. You can use the non-commercial version of articy:draft SE even for projects intended for a commercial release. We ask you to upgrade to “commercial use” when revenues kick in and you feel like you can afford it. If you consider this “payment in installments”, the second installment will only become due when you are commercially successful. So we’re taking the risk of not completing or monetizing your project off your shoulders. Long story short: “When your rent is paid and your families are fed, please help us also feed our families.” Thank you for that.

Everything has been prepared on our end, but the people responsible for us at Valve were (understandably) pretty much captured in the summer sale. We're positive that we can now get it going, and we'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the exact release date.
