And they are totally wrong to do so. Daedalic is the world's most productive adventure game publisher & developer at the moment. They need Steam to maintain their international business. The boxed business for adventures is dead outside of Germany. Germany alone isn't big enough to make a living. See the Daedalic post at Adventure-Treff for more details.

So far Steam rufused to carry their adventures. Deep Silver opened the door for them. Thanks to their Dead Island blockbuster they have a much better relationship with Valve now.

So again, Daedalic needs Steam to survive. They can't compromise at the Steam thing. They must push this through now, because they have a chance to prove to Valve that their games sell. Then maybe Valve allows Deadalic in as a publisher.

It's make or break time for Daedalic. They would be well advised to leave everybody behind who wants to boycott Steam. It's not unlikely Steam sales will overcompensate the loss by factor 10.
