Putting VU on Steam
04:01:13 Feb 3rd 23 - Nayoke the Kid (God Eros Please Cry):

Has there ever any been any discussion of making VU available through the Steam Store? Seems like it would generate a lot more attention just by being in that environment. No idea how hard it would be transferring everything from browser to client, but I am assuming there are reasons it hasn't been done

id say that its because it would do the same as putting as a twitch category

that's like comparing apples to tennis balls. not everyone on steam plays call of duty or elden ring. the diversity of games on steam is tremendous. imagine if 1/1000 warhammer players caught onto vu. it would be bigger than ever

no no no id mean that itd be just chating for a looong bit and move build explain 

attenborough couldnt stretch that shit for mor that 10 min

also vu is built into browser and has no acttual app that i am aware of

extrapolate and interpret known data better

Easy enough to embed a browser into a faux client for playing via Steam, but not sure if that's even allowed? Not seen any browser-based games on Steam before

The game is fantastic to play as a browser game if there was a way to transition it to the app store it could easily pull in a few good new players

Problem with platforms like steam is they require a revenue stream.  This means that VU would be required to provide some sort of compensation moving forward to support this.  


Do you want to have to pay either a subscription or buy the game?  I'm not saying not to support Zeta but he would be in a position where he would have to pay an extra fee to steam to house his game.  He would likely have to pass this fee onto the players rather than having a donation system which has been working for him for over a decade.

A pros would be more exposure; however would this game survive a temp I flux of thousands of players who play for less than an era?  Most new people won't stick around long.  

I wouldn't be surprised if Zeta has already investigated this as an option.  Had he been serious about it he probably would have mentioned it at some point before now.

If a monthly sub for even like $5 for all the benefits of vip was put into the game I don't think that would be anything but a good thing for VU. It would let new and returning players get all the tools without having to put in all the money.


In terms of increasing player retention, that would probably involve more of a community effort. At the very least going through all the guides and articles and really streamlining the information there.
