I was wondering if anyone has released or tried to release on Steam and how much time it took Steam to respond to your game submissions, I cant find any info about it on their website and its been over a month now since I have submitted and have yet to even get a confirmation email.

Is this to be expected from sources such as these? Ive sent them two emails so far at 3 weeks apart and have to make a decision on what to do with the game and can not wait much longer.

From what I've heard, the best way to get on Steam is to successfully release your game elsewhere, and THEN get on Steam (or have a proven track record of successful games) – thedaian Jul 19 '11 at 20:58
Is your game nearly complete? – zfedoran Jul 20 '11 at 3:54

I'm already on Steam and it can be hard to get a reply from Valve sometimes. They also have a LOT of turnaways - and their policy is to not tell you why. Which kind of sucks.

One of the best ways to keep getting wrong material is exactly not telling the reasons for refusing them. Pretty stupid. – o0'. Jul 20 '11 at 16:33
