Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchman's Mine (Enhanced Edition v4.0) has been added on Steam Greenlight.

Click here to see Al Emmo v4.0 on Greenlight

This is an upcoming enhanced edition of Al Emmo. The major changes will be completely new Al Emmo character vocals (by new voice actor) and 2D animated cutscenes to replace the original 3D ones. There are also a plethora of other tweaks and improvements! :)

The way Greenlight works, is that the community votes for games they would like to see on Valve's Steam platform. This removes the sole decision-making from their shoulders and provides a more accurate representation of which titles the gaming community at large wants to see on Steam.

So, we could use your help! If you have a Steam account, please log-in and vote "Yes" to help us get the upcoming Al Emmo build onto the Steam platform.

If Al Emmo gets onto Steam, current owners of the game will be given a free Steam code for the Enhanced Edition.

Thank you!

It's good to see this. These days, I use Steam almost exclusively for my gaming.

I see gog.com banners on your site but you only sell through steam? Why not sell it through gog.com as well? I don't like steam and would much rather buy it on gog.com
