1701 A.D.
(My first post here, hopefully I'm doing this right)
So, there is a great game I used to love to play called 1701 AD. Sadly once Windows7 came out it stopped working. Aparently there are drivers you can install to make it work, but now my product key doesn't work anymore for some reason. I know a lot of other people who have had the same problem. Having it available on Steam would be awesome, in addition to automatic updates if any come out, it would also all but eliminate the problem of it not working on new versions of Windows, or losing your product key.

Here I will include a few links with information on the game.

Combined with the amount of players who would get it on Steam just for the multiplayer, even if they already have it working with their disk, this would be a great game for Steam to get up.

Nope, you're not doign it right. :( You forgot to read the FAQ "About Greenlight".

"I know of a game that should be on Steam. what should I do?"
"Contact the developer and convince them to submit it to greenlight"

I'm not sure how being on steam in itself would eliminate the problem with it not working with newer opewrating systems? Wouldn't that require updates from the developer?

I think you are looking for Gog.com. They seem to avcctually be working the way you seem to think Steam works: listening to wishlists and making sure that games works for users.

1701 was the better game, in my opinion, but if you want a similar experience, then Anno 2070 is worth a look (it's on Steam). Unless my memory is off, 1701 used to be on Steam too, but it was removed at some point (and I regret not buying it).
