Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Does the small scale release of a work in progress game or tech demo need to be reported?

I like to provide fellow devs, Twitter followers, etc. with work in progress builds to show off individual features of my games. Am I required to report every one of these? Or just the final product release?

I recognize there is some grey area in the middle possibly, but I would say that sharing with friends and family is not a release, but Steam Greenlight is a release. And every release needs to be reported.

What would you say if, for example, I uploaded a work in progress build to Dropbox and shared the link to that on Twitter and/or the Unreal forums or similar places?

(It's no problem to report I just figure you don't want to be inundated with mostly meaningless notices.)

sorry to resurrect an old thread. "but Steam Greenlight is a release"

does this mean that any game going through steam greenlight (and accepted ) has to be reported? If this is correct means we should be reporting our game.

I'm not an expert on how Steam Greenlight works, but if it's available to the public on Steam, it's a release.

Release reporting is mostly to track commercial releases, so I would say if you are doing that as part of your development process and not as your intended mechanism for release, it doesn't have to be reported.
