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\

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.

Cool beans, man! Even if not many pumping out levels just yet there are enough default ones to keep this game going for awhile. =D

Maybe I'll drop in a few once I get a better hang of the game.

I did Anna videos, unfortunately didn't do the facecam but that would have been fun because I did get startled and yell at the game a few times. haha BTW this game is awesome.
