The game was Greenlit just Yesterday. Once again, thanks to all who supported it during the Greenlight campaign.

Looking forward to it. I know the game hasn't been out for a month yet but would you say that you are happy with the public response thus far? Would you be encouraged to make another game or is it a frightening experience?

People have responded positively to the game, as is evident from Steam reviews. Considering it's a one-man hardcore/niche type of game, I am rather impressed.

What the game is currently lacking is coverage. So far it has been positively received by those few reviewers who bothered writing a review.

I am not sure what else to do in terms of promotion. I have contacted lots and lots of journalists and websites prior to its release in the most formal and informative way possible. You know, press kits and all.

Some Youtubers/Streamers responded, also gave an interview at Darkstation.com, but nothing else worth noting.

Humble Bundle and Indiegala contacted me, I am currently preparing for them.

So I made a game that some people...enjoyed and it's still rather...obscure, I guess?

I am not disappointed overall, far from it: Other people still struggle to have their games Greenlit!

But I find it somewhat perplexing that some websites were eager to cover the Greenlight campaign for the game, and when the game was actually launched there was such a deafening radio silence.
[+] SPOILER
If anyone wants to help get the game out there, you can tweet/blog/share at Facebook about it, or, if already active in one, post about it at forums like Rock, Paper, Shotgun/the Escapist/GIantbomb etc, or even tweet at them about covering the game.
