With Hades, we knew we really wanted to create a game we could develop in partnership with the community, and from talking to the folks at Epic, we realized their store would be the flawless place to conduct our latest experiment.

The other notable thing about the Epic Games store is its revenue split with game developers, which is closer to the generous terms of an itch.io than it is with Steam. Numerous others are already released and are available via Steam and other online stores.

Gaylonkin's extracurricular hobby as SteamSpy was praised by many, including indie developers, publications and general users alike.

"Exactly how that pans out in the long term remains to be seen, but this is a promising start", he added.

After announcing its existence on 4 December, the Epic Games Store has now launched, during the 2018 Game Awards. The two games are fairly popular and have been well received.
