Maybe? Kinda? Earlier today, the guys over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun reported that some of their forum users had done digging and found an option to redeem a Steam user key for Project Zomboid. Is this proof the zombie sandbox game is coming to Steam? Not quite.
In a forum post, one of the game's developers commented on the speculation.
"Valve have done us a massive favour in allowing Project Zomboid to use their servers and auto-updating and whatnot," posted Chris Simpson (aka lemmy101). "We won't appear on the store and Steam accounts will only be via redeem codes, so purchases will still be through our site."
So whilst the game isn't able to be bought just yet via the Steam store, it seems likely that you might be able to buy the game on Steam, once Project Zomboid is actually completed. I hope the guys at The Indie Stone get the game finished soon and up on Steam, especially after the recent piracy woes.
