The Non-Steam Version Request - Sign Here If You Want It [1 post/person]

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

POST HERE TO REQUEST A NON-STEAM VERSION.
One post per person in this thread. A short & sweet signature is all you need.
No Steam hate or love required nor needed . Please & Thank you.

Update - Oct 29/11 - 5:50 AM EST: 13 signatures
Update - Oct 29/11 - 9:20 AM EST: 26 signatures (including Shams!)
Update - Oct 30/11 - 6:50 PM EST: 102 signatures (112 - 10 unrelated posts)

I would gladly repay for a non-Steam version, and I'm sure there's many others that would love a non-Steam version as well. As it stood, so far, it was clear there wasn't going to be a non-Steam version.

But now, given the following quote by Paradox Staff member Shams:
The Kerberos guys wanted to do a non-steam - but getting everything ready for release meant choices had to be made. Unless there's a 5000 man strong petition for a non-steam version it's not likely to happen...
I think there's some [very minute almost non-existent, but still] hope. All we need is 5000 people! :D
[lol yea that's not happening but worth it to try :p]

Now, Shams probably made the comment offhandedly, so it's of course in no way a guarantee, nor a promise and might not even be a realistic possibility.

But if do manage to get 5000 signatures in this thread, that would at least be a very powerful message.
And if it fails/flops, it would at least be an interesting experiment. So have fun with it.

So keep it clean. Sign your name. That's all.

Enjoy.

Signed - Innocent Beard

EDIT: Shams himself has signed! We thank him for his support of course. Here is what he had to say:
signed!

Yes, who is this Shams character anyway and why should we trust his offhand remarks?

Well I hear he works as a producer and with business development at Paradox. So he can problably be trusted, we just need to get more signatures.

What are you waiting for? Snap to it.

I doubt any kind of petition will achieve what you want. Who is Shams? Surely not a Kerberos employee.

A Paradox employee. But please. Let it be a fun exercise. It's not harming anyone to post here. If you don't want to request it, don't. Enjoy.

EDIT: I'll keep a running tally of signatures, usually post count subtract known unrelated posts, hence the 1 post/person rule.

Signed indeed. Steam is a nice platform but SotS 2 doesn't need it. No DRM, supply the same game and binaries to everyone.

I would buy a non-Steam version. Signed.

To give you all a little hope, the original petition for CK2 had 863 posts.
