How a whole language of the Steam Translation Server was shut down - and why it's important to you • /r/Steam

So basically this guy Torsten gamified your workplace to dangle a paid position in front of you to get more productivity while you’re trying to make a better front end to work with, and when the whole thing backfires on him he gets 2 people let go and then Valve HR basically tells you (after doing 10 years of free work) to fuck off?

I know I’m late to the party with this. IGN posted this video days ago, and I should have watched it sooner. Oh well.

In the video, IGN plays the “full” PC version of TRON RUN/r. (You can tell, because Steam achievements pop up at the 3:13 mark. They actually earn the TRON 3 achievement …)

Here’s the interesting part: The video confirms that you will be able to play characters other than Anon, but it sounds like they do have to be unlocked. (I think we all pretty much knew they were either going to be unlock rewards or DLC. Thankfully, it seems they’ll be there from the start, rather than additional paid content later. But is it all of the characters I found by poking around in the game files? Probably?)

You also get to see the additional polish in this full version. Temporary level selection screen is gone, replaced by proper menu screens. Additional visual effects and touches. Looks great.

In case anyone hasn’t backed Beastmaster and Prince

Or hasn’t had a chance to read their email or see the comment page: 

–They are going to consider bringing over the Vita version of B&P if they get more money. 

–They are currently planning on using the Japanese audio for the game, but they are still working on negotiating with the VAs so they can’t make any announcements

–They are planning on making higher tier rewards

–They have increased the current highest reward tier (the 140 dollar one) from a limit of 50 backers to 200, and it’s going fast. If you wanted the 140, I would pledge now. 

If you have the money I highly recommend pledging. They’re offering a Steam code for 25 dollars when the game is gonna be 50 at retail price; you’re literally paying half of what they game will be worth. If you’re able, buying it now is a much smarter option and will ensure that the game is even brought over here. You can always increase your pledge if they manage to get a Vita stretch goal or better rewards and/or higher tiers at some point. 

If you can even pledge 1 dollar it would be helpful. This would mean so much to the Otome fandom. Even if you can’t pledge money, please share the posts, and the news articles, so that news can spread about the Kickstarter! Let them at least hear your voice that you want the game. 

 Let’s show them that there’s a market over here! The harder we work, the more otome will come over!

I thought this game seemed really nice and calming. I haven’t played it yet so I don’t know if it’s any good, but it’s pretty and supposed to be relaxing, and it’s free (I think you have to pay for extra features).

@babyserpent this seemed like something you might like if you ever play games (idk if you do?)

“Nurture a small pot of succulents that grow in real time.
Viridi is a safe haven, a place you can return to for a moment of peace and quiet whenever you need it.
Leave Viridi open in a second window to keep you company while you work, or check in on your plants as a meditative moment every night. While not fully realistic (they’re very forgiving), your succulents will require some maintenance and can die from over- or under-watering. Name your favorite plants, give them special care and attention, and they might even flower for you.
Viridi is free to try and comes with your choice of plant assortments. If you think it has a place in your life, you can buy your favorite plants from the in-game nursery for just a few cents a piece. Remember to visit the nursery occasionally for the weekly free seeding!“

These are a couple others that seemed similar (and are also free):
