Very good game, when I started, I got the orange gun and got 72 kills in a row! Why isn't it priced? It's a great game!

+1, there's no reason not to because steam players can play with non steam players in any game. It's a real shame that such a great game goes so unnoticed because it has little exposure.

They could even add it to the Steam workshop to encourage more developers to contribute.

I wonder if they've considered applying for 'Greenlight'?
I know greenlight for Xonotic and Warsow is being discussed by their dev teams. RE should beat em to the punch!

I think he means the original quake mod. Or the doom mod. Or any of the other mods that followed. Cause there's no way TF2 is making it onto Desura, Valve is keeping that Steam-exlusive.
