Nuclear Throne
Poor Rami
Since Rami is so very angry with Steam's decisions to not be the gatekeepers, I have a solution for you.
Remove all current and future Vlambeer games from Steam. Put your money where your mouth is.
I heard Scratch.io or whatever is a great site for indie devs who have such superb morals.

Ah yes. I too noticed a strong lack of context.

Valve recently decided to stop enforcing absolute power over what games could and couldn't be sold on Steam. Apparently, soon, customers will be the ones deciding what they want to buy.

Apparently (all I have to go on about this is the OP's post), one of Nuclear Throne's developers is angry about this.

I'm not entirely sure why we should care, but that's what seems to be happening.
I'm confused why you bring it up here on the NT forums even though it reads more like a point you wish to make towards Rami himself. Ah well.

I mean there's discussion to be had on the topic but I think it's probably better had on twitter.

I was more confused why he was posting it here, I understood what it was about.
I see.

Yes, the link between the game and one of its developers' opinion about the practices of one of the distribution platforms that it uses does exist, but it is indeed tenuous.

I highly doubt that Vlambeer is going to pull Nuclear Throne (or any future game) from Steam. It's probably where they made the vast majority of their sales and the only place where they bothered to update it. AFAIK the Humble and GOG versions are still on u98.

Basically, what Rami thinks about Valve's move is completely irrelevant to us.
Rami is 50% of Vlambeer and easily the loudest one.

Oh wow. I thought there were, like, six or seven of them. Maybe the other ones quit after the whole Nuclear Throne development PTSD thing?

Regardless, I don't think the fact that he's angry with Valve's policy will be affecting us in any way.
Well that's a shame, as I said, he should put his money where his mouth is. But consistency was never a strong side of the virtue signalling folks.

It's called contract work.
A person pays you money for a project, once the project is done/the time you were paid for is up, you're out. If you're good you might get more contracts.

Ah, I didn't realize the name only applied to the "core" dev team.

Regardless, the fact remains that this is highly unlikely to affect us or Nuclear Throne.
Vlambeer has always been Rami and JW however Nuclear Throne had 6 total people working on it. 7 if you count YellowAfterLife and another one if you count the Thronebutt.com developer as well.
See, other devs are doing it.

Don't just be a virtue signalling clown, Rami, practise what you preach.
I'm not sure I understand, though.

How is Valve "bailing out of all social responsibility"?

Is this about those asset flipping games or something?
