Strategy First, the publisher of PC games such as Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns and Galactic Civilization, has signed up with Valve to distribute future games on the company's Steam digital distribution service. The deal will cover multiple forthcoming PC games, including Strategy First's next title, naval combat title S.C.S. - Dangerous Waters, due for release this month. The move represents the first step Strategy First has taken to rebuild U.S. distribution channels since its bankruptcy in 2004. Earlier in the year, the developer, now owned by Silverstar Holdings, partnered with Lago srl for European distribution, but had announced no plans for the American market until now. "Digital distribution is an exciting, effortless and dynamic delivery method to bring Games and Gamers together in a real-time experience," said Strategy First product manager Emanuel Wall. "We are excited to be working with Valve and the opportunity to bring our top quality titles to their Steam delivery platform. We believe Valve's delivery system is one of the best methods of connecting gamers to top software titles as do millions of gamers worldwide. We believe our robust portfolio of gaming titles coupled with Valve's recognized market acceptance are a winning combination for both parties and gamers alike." The strategy game publisher's deal with the creator of the Half-Life series is the latest in a slew of recent announcements by Valve, highlights of which include an untitled Warren Spector project, Tripwire's Red Orchestra, Introversion's Darwinia, among others.
