"Beyond making a game that we really wanted to play ourselves, getting Legends of Aethereus greenlit has been our biggest goal over the past year,” said Don Geyer, CEO of ThreeGates. “We want to thank the Steam community for voting us up and also want to state our commitment to delivering an RPG experience that’s unlike any other game available today. On September 27 th, players around the world will be able to play our game and we’re looking forward to a great launch.”
