I'm glad your "sale" boosted your visibility, otherwise I wouldn't have known about this game. I am voting up the Greenlight, and I'm about to bomb my friend network with instructions to do the same. Good luck!

How do we launch the game from a Steam shortcut, I did not see an exe in the games desura directory. I like running all my non steam games from Steam.

You can manually add a shortcut to the executable in Steam. You'll find the executable in (by default) \Program Files x86\ApathyWorks\CuteThingsDyingViolently\

I am running 64 bit Win 7, and I dont see a ApathyWorks directory in program Files x86.

It should be under Program Files \x86\Desura\Common\<Game Name>\<Game.exe>

That's how I have done it with the Steam shortcuts for all my Desura games so far. they are not in the main Desura directory, you have to go to the Common subdirectory then to the game's subdirectory from there.
