Pressure's disappearance on the store
Hey fellow gamers,

as you have noticed, the game's store page is back online. Sorry for the confusion, but there was no other way, considering the circumstances. You can find the respective announcement here: http://steamcommunity.com/games/224220/announcements/detail/956255905067785180

Some of you already have discussed this matter here and there, but we think it is important to clarify it from our point of view:

We started developing Pressure back in 2011 and after a while of searching for a publisher (since we also wanted to release the game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) we decided to go with Topware. A decision we had to regret, eventually.

At first, this seemed like a good deal. We had already financed the full game and they threw in a big marketing campaign and their longtime knowledge in the industry. Huge promises were made, but few were kept. Press coverage was pretty insignificant, the initial release was very rough and Pressure stayed mostly under the radar. So, basically there was no launch effect regarding sales.

Even worse: The console versions never saw the light of day, which is another story. We couldn’t help but to face the bad situation, and after a painful time of uncertainty and false promises, we contacted a lawyer. By the mid of 2015 we had settled with Topware in court for a ridiculous deal. With the start of 2016 we got all the rights for Pressure back, though, which was our main concern.

In the end we made absolutely no money on developing Pressure. However, thanks to the commitment and trust of our investor, we're still alive and continue to bring delicious game creations to you, the players.
We hope, this sheds some light on the situation. If you have any questions about Pressure, please contact us. We’re happy to stay in touch.

Thank you for your continued support, you’re awesome.

Kind regards,
Your Chasing Carrots
