MewnBase is coming to Steam this Friday!

Store page link: https://store.steampowered.com/app/743130/MewnBase/

Having had a wonderful home on itch.io for the past two years, my little weird space-cat/survival/base-building game is making the next step by launching on Steam Early Access.

What if I already own the game on itch.io?

If you own the game on itch.io (thank you), you will be able to get a free Steam key for it on your MewnBase downloads page (once the Steam version is available for sale).

What will happen to the itch.io version?

Itch.io is an amazing platform and MewnBase won't be leaving it anytime soon. The itch.io version will continue to receive updates at the same pace as the Steam version.

How much will it cost?

The game will be launching at $5.99 USD on Steam, the itch.io price will also be rising to match.

If you've enjoyed the game, I would greatly appreciate if you could help spread the word, add it to your wishlist, leave it a review once it launches, tell your friends ❤️

Cheers,

I'm very disappointed with this Steam release. In this day and age when more and more online platforms are being opened and Steam becomes less and less competitive, you just go there?! Hah, that also means the itch.io version of the game will be neglected. You are not the first developer who does that and I hate it. Oh well, it's your choice and good luck with feeding an over spoiled publisher and on top of that a monopoly.

If you have read the notes. He’s keeping the game updated on both platforms.

Look pal. Most of them say that, but in the end even some AAA titles are neglected on other platforms.

Welcome to the harsh world, but I'll definitely buy this on Steam even if I received a key from you. Good luck!

You know he will get less from your purchase on steam right? Like -30% steam tax and the VAT. If you want to support the dev, buy it here.

Haha that's right. However I think having more opportunities for public exposure is more worth to an indie title than minding about taxes (and registration fees).

And perhaps there is no relation between keeping motivation to develop a game and choosing which platform to regist it.

Economies of scale, pal

Congratulations on the Steam launch! I have been enjoying this game for a long time on itch.io... can't wait to play it, share it and stream it from Steam! Thanks again for all the work you put into making this game amazing!

Itch.io played on my Mac and Steam on my PC.

Which downloads page? Steam or Itch?

If you've bought the Itch version, the downloads page for MewnBase that itch.io emails to you.  If you're logged into itch you can also find the key by clicking the Download button on the top of the page here:
