Depths of Peril - Post Release Interview @ RPG Codex
RPG Codex has a nice interview with Steven Peeler from Soldak on Depths of Peril, talking about the development, how the public and media have reacted to the game and the future:

1. First of all, how was Depths of Peril received by the media? Did the reaction meet your expectations or surprise you in some ways?

Overall I would say the media has treated us about how I expected. We are a small indie company, so I didnít really expect to get too much attention at first. However, a few sites have surprised me by treating us very well. Those sites that have taken a look at the game though have liked it. So far our average review score is in the mid-80s, which is good whether you are a large AAA developer/publisher or a small indie company.

2. I don't recall seeing any previews/reviews from large mainstream sites. Did you try to contact them, offer them review copies? Do you think they would have treated your game differently if it had a well known publisher's name on it?

Well it depends on which sites are considered large mainstream sites. We have contacted as many review sites as possible and offered review copies. We have gotten a handful of reviews so far (which have all been good) and have more that are coming soon. We still welcome more reviews.
More information.

@ Steven Peeler, have you considered releasing Depths of Peril on Steam? I'm sure they would be willing to distribute it. But I suppose what you mean with "portals" is perhaps exactly Steam, GamersGate etc.?


Well right now Iím expanding our distribution by getting added to some portals and looking to sign some retail deals.

Yes, I have thought of Steam. I've actually contacted them a couple times, but haven't heard anything back yet. They have probably been really busy with the Gold box stuff. I haven't tried talking to Gamersgate yet. I'm not sure I've heard of them before, but after a quick look they seem like a good place. Thanks for the tip. :)

@ steven , Why can't I post at your guys forum I tried to signup and post but it says I need to be validated by admin first or something :S I waited a month and still not validated

Steven Peeler October 29th, 2007 02:09

You can't post on our forums at soldak.com? It shouldn't require you to be validated at all.

Ok that should be Orange box. I knew it was some color. :)
