This is pretty sweet, when will it be on steam so I can purchase it? ;)

I'd love to buy it because this looks really fun and challenging but I'm not going to purchase it from some obscure transaction system like BMT Micro as well as other reasons. Don't you want to make more money from your game? Steam.

Thank you, for your comment.
I will try again to get an answer from Valve and the other big online game distributors.
Any tips are appreciated.

The ingame-level-editor is part of the full version of the game.
I will create a video tutorial, when I have time for it.

Which Engine is this based on, or is it really completely custom build?

The game is using the jMonkeyEngine and LWJGL:
Jmonkeyengine.com
Lwjgl.org
I will update the engine-information as soon as the engine-community added it to ModDB.
