During an event in Shanghai, No More Robots and RageSquid revealed one of the first titles heading to Steam China, from Valve and Perfect World. Descenders, the multiplayer free-riding title was revealed as one of the initial Steam China titles and has become the top-selling region for the game on Steam.
Mike Rose, director of No More Robots commented on the announcement:
“We’ve seen our Chinese sales explode over the last year. So when Valve asked us to be part of the Steam China announcement, we couldn’t sign up fast enough.This is going to be a massive deal for Western studios, like ourselves, that have wanted to bring their PC games to Chinese audiences for some time, but have struggled to find the right partner or platform.”
