I think it’s safe to say that everyone was happy to see Steam get a refund policy. While refunds weren’t unheard of before then, they tended to be rather rare and hard to get.

Passion can make a project come to life, but dedication and conviction are the elements that keep it alive after troublesome times, that is the story of D-Pad Studio.
