Skipping Greenlight?
So Fist Puncher can be published by Adult Swim and skip Greenlight, but Paranautical Activity can't? Come on Valve!

Yeah, I don't get it either. Supposedly they removed their Greenlight... maybe as long as you don't have an ACTIVE GL you can get in with a publisher? That still would make zero sense... I do like that they're getting on Steam, because it seems cool, BUT, Greenlight/Publisher stuff needs some stability and a set rule-set.

Adult Swim already have 2 more games in Steam, maybe that's why it's not on Greenlight.

Paranautical had the wrong publisher.

Their publisher went to valve and said "we are only their publusher to get them on steam"

This used to be on greenlight, I am almost certain of it. I'm pretty sure I voted for it too.

They were on Greenlight. 'The Greenlight: Fist Puncher" by Jesse Cox and Josh Mattingly. I assume there's a rule that you can only be turned down from getting on Steam via publisher if you have an ACTIVE Greenlight page... which seems kind of silly. If that were the case, PA should've been able to delete their Greenlight page and instantly get accepted through Adult Swim Games.

Yeah I am not trying to hate on Fist Puncher, cause it is a game I WILL buy. I mostly wanted to hear other people thoughts about the whole Paranautical Activity "scandal" thats been going on.

Yeah this has been on greenlight sense PAX prime so that's last September. I saw it at pax and voted for it back then but for some reason they have been able to by pass that system. A thing of note to the people here Paranautical publisher was Adult Swim... the same publisher. That is why you see most of the head scratching here.

I ddon't understand why Valve did this. Not hating on Fist Puncher or Adult Swim Games, the gaame looks pretty good, but PA got pretty much the same deal, and from the same exact publisher as well. But Fist Puncher is able to pass Greenlight because they delete their page? If Valve wanted to stop PA from passing as an example to other games, why wouldn't they stop this from bypassing Greenlight as well? It seems like both devs did the exact same thing, yet PA got denied.
I just don't understand how only some games are allowed to bypass Greenlight while others aren't. Again, nothing against the game or Adult Swim, my only issue is with Valve.

Agreed, they need to make some solid rules and stick by them.

That way we can remove it.

Heh, I'd like to see that. I wonder what would happen

Too expensive! I should buy this game max for 2,5 $

Paranautical activity was going to be published by Adult Swim though...
What's Paranautical Activity?
