If you could do some sort of activation exchange or something it would be great(or even a coupon). If not, I'll probably buy it again anyways.

This is the first Greenlight project I've followed. What's the typical time from Greenlighting to download?

My favorite game just got Greenlit. How long before it launches on Steam?

Games are submitted to Steam Greenlight in various stages of completion. Once a game has been Greenlit, Valve will reach out to the developer to determine their timeline for finishing their game and launching on Steam.


Makes it sound like it's up to Jim, but based on the time that it took to get Greenlit, I'm sure it can't be that easy.

I'm about to build out a new computer, and dreading the elicense unlicensed/relicense fiasco. Can't wait until I never have to worry about that again.

This is my first post (newbie, of course) and I literally read every single comment in this thread. It was such a pleasant surprise to see that this game has been recently greenlit. I just purchased a license a few days ago and I'm thrilled to have finally come across a simulation that's so deep and engaging.

The developer seems like a very hardworking individual who is also honest and receptive to feedback. Those are the folks I root for!

You have my full support, Jim!

Cheers

This actually happened?

Ben, I feel like we need a giant announcement / celebration thread or something on the forums to make sure everyone knows. I almost didn't click in here and usually don't.

Ben gave up after he was scooped by Sportdigs; yet again.

The first step is figuring out what exactly I have the permission to do. Is this now a pipeline for all things FOF? Or a one-shot deal?

Given that it took 10 months to get FOF7 through, that question determines whether I get something out in the next few weeks or whether I give the game a makeover and put it out this summer.

Late to the show, but I'm so glad to hear the great news. I'm hoping we see a whole new wave of FOFers.

Ummm....hmmm...I think I'm hoping for that.

It's like Google Play in that there's a lot of verbiage to indicate that direct contact with developers is quite unwelcome.

It would be nice to have some sort of mentoring. I could use advice from people who know this business far better than I do.

Do you know Bill Harris of Dubious Quality blog?

Dubious Quality

I know he mentions FOF when a new update comes out and his football card game was greenlighted awhile ago, so he probably is a good person to reach out to.

Every game needs it's own id from them. With FHM version 1 on Steam we asked for an ID for version 2 and got it after some time.

Hope this helps (and congratulations for getting into Steam!).

He got the game to go up rather quickly, but had some help.

Thanks, Sebastian. How did you make that request, and how long did it take? Is there someone at Valve I should establish some sort of planning relationship with?

Steam Version and Super Bowl Sale

Front Office Football received the Steam Greenlight from Valve early in January and will be released on Steam the first week of February.

We are still working on a plan for qualifying customers to trade a ViaTech Front Office Footbal Seven order ID for a Steam order ID, if they choose to do so (advantages to either system).

Our price on Steam will be $24.99. We will lower the ViaTech price to $24.99 beginning on Super Sunday. Thanks for your support in helping us through the Greenlight process.
