Bot War is now on Steam (Coming Soon)


#1

I’ve created a store page for my game, Bot War, on Steam. It’s currently in the Coming Soon state. The game itself is ready for early access. The main thing I need to do next is upload the distributables, and make sure that when someone installs the game, that it actually works. I’m thinking, in particular, of those pesky Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable DLLs.

Anyway, check out the store page, watch the video, have a look at the screenshots, read the description, and let me know what you think. And wish me luck, because I’m nearing that nerve-wracking make or break point! :crossed_fingers:

Is this developed with jmonkey?

Yes, of course. Why do you ask? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Probably because you mentioned a C++ Redistributable and it’s not obvious that the JVM needs that to run. When Valve set it up to install one for my game I first thought they made a mistake, then I tested on a fresh PC and it really didn’t work without it. :sweat_smile:

The MSVC redistributable is the weirdest thing ever… and I always include it in my signs that Windows C++ software development has not really advanced at all in 20 years.

MoffKalast gave you the answer :).
Nice work; I just check the game and it looks awesome. :slight_smile:
