Wow! Finally starting to calm down from the excitement of yesterday’s Greenlight announcement and get back to providing updates. A huge “Thank you!” goes out to all those who took time to consider Three Dead Zed for Steam. We’ve attended various conferences showcasing Three Dead Zed and the show of support has been amazing. It’s always a joy for us to witness people enjoying their experience and laughing (for the right reasons) at our games.

We are currently working on adding new features to Three Dead Zed including a new ending, level tweaks, key bindings, steam trading cards, and achievements. Before a Steam release, we need to test this version of the game on more PC configurations, including SteamOS, in an effort to make your first experience with the game an enjoyable one, as intended.

As stated previously, if you bought the game from another store, you will get a code for the Steam version (assuming Valve’s policy doesn’t change). Your early support is very appreciated.

In the mean time, please vote for these games we feel need some attention.

Metal Dead:
This adventure game is great and really funny. It won quite a bit of awards and deserves to be on Steam.

Awesome action game from a very cool development team.

Rise of the Ravager:
Our own little shout out. :) Please check the demo for yourselves! We feel you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Thank you once again for your time!
