The good news is that Pseudoku has been approved on Steam Greenlight. I could technically begin selling the game right now. (Well, after filling out a bunch of paperwork, but you know what I mean.)
The bad news is that I’m not happy with how it runs and I don’t feel comfortable putting it up for sale. I got several complaints from people that it doesn’t run. I don’t have numbers on the failure rate because I didn’t make any effort to track how many people downloaded it, but I’m worried the number is high. The last thing I want is to put this thing up for sale and discover that 20% of the people who pay for it can’t run it.
The worse news is that I spent most of my weekend playing, talking about, reading about, and maybe even writing about Borderlands 2. This means I didn’t work on Pseudoku, and I also didn’t write about Pseudoku.
I’d like to know what the failure rate is. I know Straw Polls are just unforgivably ugly, but they really do seem to be the most reliable free poll out there. So here it is:
I anticipate that some people might want to go back to earlier entries in the series and download the old builds so they can participate in the poll. Just to save you the trip: Don’t bother. I’ve taken them down. They were still being downloaded and it’s really annoying to have this constant trickle of comments and feedback on things I fixed ages ago. I’m content to gather feedback from just the folks who downloaded the game at the time.
Anyway, next week I should have something of more substance to say about the project. Unless I’m still playing Borderlands 2. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Secret of Good Secrets
Sometimes in-game secrets are fun and sometimes they're lame. Here's why.
Trusting the System
How do you know the rules of the game are what the game claims? More importantly, how do the DEVELOPERS know?
