Cute, Homeless Kittens Want You to Greenlight Edge of Space


Reverb Publishing and HandyMan Studios are pulling out the cute-animal-in-distress card to push Edge of Space that extra mile towards approval on Steam Greenlight.

Currently in the top 50, Edge of Space, a 2D side-scrolling open-world exploration/crafting/building/terraforming/survival/action space-adventure game (now that’s what you call a genre hybrid!), needs to crack the top 10 to get the official green light for Steam distribution. If the Steam community unites to vote the game to approval by October 15th, Reverb will donate $5000 to the Humane Society, the cash to go towards the rescue of homeless cats. Reverb’s even prepared to make you feel guilty if you don’t vote the game through:

“However, if the game doesn’t get approval, that money will disappear, like a puff of smoke in the uncaring wind, leaving poor kitties to survive in the harsh elements, be placed in harm’s way and possibly scheduled for euthanasia. The challenge is out there, and for a simple “yes” vote on Steam’s Greenlight consumers can actively take a role in saving the lives of kitties. So, do your part, save some cats, and see a great space sandbox adventure get onto Steam’s platform. It’s a win-win!”

So, basically, if you don’t give the game a thumb’s up vote, poor, starving kittens are going to die. Here’s the Edge of Space Steam Greenlight page.
