ThreadSatisfactory removed from Steam to be announced as Epic Store game
If it helps a developer they should launch on whatever launcher or platform they like. When a developer is targeting younger players who love watching streams then Epic’s launcher is ideal.
Every market has some version of this. Movies have cinemas. Books have hardbacks.
Maybe it’ll hit Steam later, or maybe never. Just like price point, it’s an inconvenience that might be enough to lose you purchase, but probably not if you’re interested enough.
I’ll always favour supporting artists over consumer convenience.
