Developer Digitalmindsoft of Men of War: Assault Squad has posted an open love letter to Valve and their Steam store. They reveal the development cost was covered by pre-orders alone.

It's still selling to PC fans and has "generated more than 5 times" its cost to Digitalmindsoft, thanks to Steam's 'prompt updates' to the game. Steam has earned a "well-deserved status".

The studio is gushing with sentiment that all the support Steam has given them has led to re-investment in new titles and continuous support for their products. So sweet.

Here's the open letter to Steam from Digitalmindsoft in full:

We at Digitalmindsoft wanted to take a moment and thank you for creating a platform that has completely revitalized the PC gaming market and allows us to deliver exciting content to millions of players. Never before has it been so exciting and rewarding to develop games for the PC. Hit game Men of War: Assault Squad paid for its development costs during pre-order with Steam as the largest contributor! The game continues to sell and generated more than 5 times of its costs, thanks to your ability to promptly update and maintain our game. This dedication has made it possible for us to re-invest into our company, continually support our products and strive to make bigger and better games.

A marketplace can never be free of issues, but through excellent communication and response time, you've managed to find a solution to all our requests and helped us to provide the best possible experience for our players.

Therefore we are extremely excited to see Steam growing, as well as maintain its well-deserved status as a market leader and we look forward to a continued partnership as we launch future titles on your platform.

So in the name of our company and a large part of our player base, thank you so much for your great job!
