It looks like the guys at Ritual are going to be the first penguins to release a game via Valve’s Steam content distribution framework. This is excellent news. For starters it will be proof that digitial distribution can work for independent developers and second it will be done episodically which is also something not done since the days of shareware. Go Ritual, I hope it works out well.
Personally I’ll probably download SiN 2 from my Steam account. I quite enjoyed SiN when it first came out and it will be good to see what the guys have come up with for the sequel.
