Hello players and developers,

what do you think about publishing OpenClonk on Steam?
This would attract many users to discover OpenClonk game and fueling the online games and community, with also attracting future collaborators to continue the development of the game with fresh new willing developers.
By now so many Open Source games landing on Steam for these reasons, and it could be something inspiring for Clonk world :)

The game can be published already now, because it is in a very enjoynabled state.

An example of Open Source project landed on Steam:

What do you think?

The truth is, this project is currently more or less unmaintained. There is no active development and no active support for new players / potential new developers. And that means no one to set up a Steam page. I don't see this happening unless someone just decides to pick up this project and work on it on their own.

In addition to what Clonkonaut said:

We discussed it before and the conclusion was that we indeed think it's a good idea but we had some quality-of-life features that we would have wanted to include before. Mainly splitscreen play (which used to work) and also controller support.
But most of the developers moved on to other projects a few years ago so there's currently not the necessary support to make it happen :(
