Steam is the number one reason why PC gaming has suddenly flourished in the last two years or so.

I think Call of Duty, Mass Effect 2, Dead Space 2, and Star Craft 2 had more of a hand in that than Steam.

Not trying to defecate on what you said but Steam is just a platform to provide in-home window shopping for games, it's the content that counts no matter which way you put it.

Steam is a marketing tool. UQM needs marketing. Putting it on Steam will not impact the game itself in any way.

What about the website Good Old Games? (www.gog.com) They seem to have a really good community.  It would help raise awareness a lot to an "older" and more receptive gaming community.  I'm pretty sure Good Old games have agreements with Activison as well because they have published a lot of the older games from Troika and the like. 

What's certain is that something should be done to re-ignite the SC community.

That's like saying "Why should we accept free advertising? The game is already out there if people look for it."

I don't think I need to specify why that is a silly approach. Wink
