you good at keeping lots of balls in the air at once? Well

Why isn't this game in stores?
Well it IS going to be in stores in some
countries in Europe very soon. But we aren't racing to get
it into stores in general. Why? Two reasons. Firstly, the
retail games industry is little short of a giant scam. The
people who actually make the games get a laughably
small percentage of the sale price, if they aren't ripped
off entirely. It really doesn't make any financial sense
for us to add 3 sets of middlemen (the
retailer, publisher and distributor) between us and our
customers. That's also part of the second reason. We prefer
to sell direct to our customers. We can keep updating the
game and give free patches to people we know bought it,
you can contact us direct for tech support without going
through a disinterested publisher tech support call center.
It also means you are getting exactly the game
we wanted to make. All the rubbish things about modern games,
needing a CD in a drive, unskippable logo screens and tutorials,
silly censorship of the most trivial things, all this nonsense
is dreamt up by publishers. You won't find any of this nonsense
in our games.
