The Gate - Steam - Stand Alone PC Client Version

The Gate has arrived on Steam!
After many months of preparation and waiting, we are proud to announce the launch of The Gate on Steam. This new launch brings with it a fresh, new server and a stand-alone PC game client.
Here's the link to the web page of The Gate on the Steam Store:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/350020
Here are some questions and answers related to this launch. If you have additional questions, feel free to post them below.
Why a new server? We secured a deal with DeNA (our existing mobile publisher) to allow the launch of a PC-client version on Steam, on the condition that the PC-client version NOT be attached to the same server as the mobile/web version. As a result, we are launching the PC-client version on Steam with a fresh, new server.

Why can't you transfer my existing account to the new server? Part of our agreement with DeNA says we are NOT allowed to transfer existing accounts away from the old server. If we do, we are liable to legal action. Please, do not ask us to do this. We cannot, and we have no control over this.

Why are things cheaper on the new server? Money you spend on the Steam version is split only between Spicy Horse and Valve (30% Valve, 70% Spicy), therefore we make a larger % of every dollar spent on that platform, and we are able to pass along that saving to players on Steam. With the mobile version, the majority of the $ you spend DOES NOT go to Spicy Horse, it goes to Apple/Google, and DeNA. We cannot make prices lower there. If we did, then we could not afford to run and support the game on those platforms.

Why no Mac, Linux, Toaster-Compy 2000, etc versions? We are a small studio and do not currently have the resources to launch Mac, Linux, or other versions of The Gate on Steam. If the game does well and there is enough interest to justify additional versions in the future we will consider the idea. Please, do not write to us complaining about this. Again, we are a small team, our hands are tied here.
Why are there no Steam Achievements? Again, we are small studio and do not have resources to add these in at launch. If the response to the game is big enough, then we will have reason to add them in later.

Will there be a devil's cache? Or is that unlocked at later levels?

FlightTribe Publish time 2015-4-28 14:49:27

Apparently no Devil's Cache in the Steam version due to technical difficulties with the way they record logging in and sell currency   :(

So it won't be coming to the Steam version at all?

FlightTribe Publish time 2015-4-28 16:39:12

Never say never, but I wouldn't expect it any time soon certainly.

The version of The Gate on SpicyWorld is 10% cheaper than the version on mobile/Facebook.

Are the separate steam version and the separate mobile version will work at the same rate ? Events, Cards, items, arena cards, aand so on will they drop at the same time ?

FlightTribe Publish time 2015-4-28 17:21:01

Think of the steam version as being a mixture.
All the new stuff is there (Augment, Hell Forge etc etc...) But in terms of the demons/event items, it's going to be running about a year behind what's on your version.
