    Or, you can distribute them for free and simply offer the option of a donation. Not sure if Steam allows you to do this, but other gaming sites do.

    @Poryg : It's because of how dilluted Steam is. I've heard of many a developer (not just RPGMaker devs) who has not even sold 1,000 copies on Steam now.

    @bgillisp I have sold just a bit more than 1000 copies so here's one too. I think it's because the market exploded and Steam is now flooding with games made in 2 weeks just for cash.

    The game also have zero coverage outside of Steam, despite being well-received by everyone who actually played it through.

    Besides, I don't like the way Steam advertises its games. The games that are already popular gain a lot more coverage. In other words, if you're already a millionare because of your game, they'll make sure you'll get even more money. In the mean time us poor developers won't be getting any buyers for the sole reason no one even knows our games exist, because they barely ever get any visibility.

    What I mean is, if the game is already popular, people will find it no matter how much space it gets on the front page.
