When does a Greenlit game get onto Steam Store?
Yes, probably dumb, but I've never really bothered to ask. Does Valve choose what will go and what will stay although the game is Greenlit? Obviously. Right?

Er, no, wrong, I'm afraid. Although I'm sure they could have some say in it if they wanted, it's pretty much up to the developer to sort everything out once greenlit. Getting the game finished and fully prepared for Steam itself, making sure that all their legal ducks are in order, etc. Apparently it's not just a case of chucking your game on Steam once you're given the okay. Some games sit in that limbo indefinitely while 'stuff' happens in the background.

And when I say 'finished', that's dependant on the route the developer has decided to take (and more recently, their honesty, it seems).

Yeah, that's sorta what I meant in my post above yours. Some choose to go Early Access.

Once the game is approved by the community, Steam will reach out to the developer about adding the game to Steam store.
