It all started with a team of warrior cows who wanted to get a bit in the spotlight. Cow Kapow! is a turn based strategy game with real tactical depth provided by the 100+ weapons of Grass Destruction, randomly generated terrain and starting position.

Choosing from a wide array of weapons and items you can wreak havoc on the opposing team of warrior cows with surprising combos of moving, jumping, charging and attacking.

Since this jewel could not be kept away for long we decided to let the world decide whether it was worth unleashing the cute battle cows upon the unsuspecting world. Therefore we proceeded to submit the game to a community known for its taste in gaming, the Steam Greenlight programme. The Steam Greenlight is the community of subscribers voting for new games thus validating your creation among other submissions.

In the first days of our submission we got an impressive spike in votes and the comments were mostly positive. We managed to get featured in two indie game Steam Collections, followed by around 2500 users each.

Normally things slowed down in the following days but in an interesting turn of events we got the last push of votes literally overnight. Last Wednesday morning as we logged into our profile we discovered that the people have spoken and that Cow Kapow! was greenlit on Steam.

So some stats about our adventure on Steam Greenlight:

Time to Greenlight: 17 days

Demographics: 85% of the visitors were between 18 and 35 years old

Featured on: 2 Steam Collections, 5000 users in total
