Profits and control. Can't see how firing up yet another program to launch a launcher is a particularly smart move either.

Why? It doesn't require any extra service client. Just download the game and launch it from the icon on your desktop.

Why?


because exposure to the steam community can only benefit this game. could b someone browsing steamstore and sees it and is like "oh cool im bored i wana try this". BAM. Customer added.

For me, its no Steam = No buy, unfortunately...

I hope this game come to Steam, else I'll not be able to play it.

Anyone able to launch the game from steam? I know most MMOs launch the launcher rather than a game.exe, which is annoying to no end. I practically can't play games without having my steam UI anymore.

I haven't been on Steam much lately, but didn't they add the ability to add custom thumbnails for non-Steam games? Wouldn't it be basically the same thing if you just added the launcher to Steam?
