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.

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.
