This should be an app for androids and IOS and nothing more.
Since when did Valve let apps onto Steam? What will they put on steam next, Angry Birds? This title is just BEYOND stupid and there is no reason it should be on steam while hundreds of better games e.g. Paranautical Activity, has to go through the greenlight. WHY IS THIS ON STEAM!?

Angry Birds (well, a variant) is already on Steam. Also, you're basically dismissing every Casual game out there on the platform, from PopCap upwards. PC or not the Casual genre is extremely popular.

(There needs to be a Sticky re: the Steam agreement prior to Greenlight.)

It is actually a better game than Paranautical Activity if you are into bust-a-move games and not into yet another generic shmup that doesn't bring anything new to the genre. Cranky Cat actually is innovative in its genre.

This game totally deserves to be on Steam, and it makes a fine PC game. That it also has an iOS port doesn't change that. Civilization, Shadowrun. FFT, and many others do, too!

Quit being an obnoxious TotalBiscuit fanboy. It's a little embarrassing.

This game does not deserve to be on steam. Many good games have to go through greenlight, why shouldn't this?

This is a store. It's not a "privilege" for a game to be sold here, so the whole "deserving" part is already complete nonsense. If you feel that games on Steam get too much exposure, then quit crying and start buying elsewhere to support other stores (like Desura or GoG).

Also, you seem to think that because one game gets added, another one does not. That is not how it works. The generic shmups you guys seem to be upset about were not added because apparently not enough Greenlight voters expressed interest. That would have been no different if Cranky Cat would not have had a previous agreement with Valve that pre-dated Greenlight (reading is hard, I know, easier to just shed teenage tears).

Greenlight is not an ideal system, but you bark at the wrong tree. It's easy and effortless. Not buying here and actually putting some action behind the whiny words would actually require some kind of sacrifice, and that is asking too much. So keep on making puppy noises for all the good it will do. That is why nobody listens to you: it's just noise.

This insightful post brought to you by EpicNarwhals.

There is a reason why there is a casual category on Steam. Get your head out of your ♥♥♥.
