Like the title.. There will be a steam release of this game?

Maybe with the steamworks features in it!

Nicalis has said that there will not be. WiiWare, however, is still possible.

Is it only possible now?

Something tells me their ideas aren't very well-planned..

For computers only --> just kidding, only wiiWare --> just kidding, both platforms --> lol no wiiWare afterall

Let me take a minute to compile a huge list of reasons why that makes sense, even though I don't think it does.

Out of curiousity, where'd you pull this one from?

Having plans and them not working out exactly as planned (due to unexpected events) isn't the same as not being well-planned either.

I took possible as not definite..
I guess well-planned isn't really what I meant, that has a more negative connotation..
Somewhat shifty?
I didn't mean it offensively.. just sort of playfully annoying. :)

Ah. Wasn't aware that Feryl's an official Nicalis spokesperson or something. X)

The info I gathered was from Nicalis' Twitter. Hasn't been a word about WiiWare in a while, but last I heard they were going to analyze how it does on PC before deciding.

To get something on steam you have to be able to integrate the steamworks stuff into the code. You can't do that with MMF AFAIK. Therefore it'd have to be in C++ or other 'languaged' form (ie. post port to wiiware) before it'd be viable, even if steam wanted it (and they have a lot of control).

Saira made it to Steam and it was also built in MMF2. :S

Congrats to you!  Steam = more sales = good for you.  I'm not sure how much you're allowed to say due to NDA stuff but would you mind sharing about the process to get this on Steam?  What made them change their minds?

I'm assuming things were a bit different this time around considering that you're working with Nicalis but I thought I'd ask.
