So I went about in Insomniac Games's website, and I saw that they made an unexpected but surprising new IP, entirely developed for Steam.

Slow Down, Bull is an action collecting game about a stressed out, overachiever bull who just wants to make beautiful art. Help steer Esteban through a beautiful schoolcraft art world to collect as many crafty pieces as you can, but be careful! Every time you steer him, he gets a little more stressed out, and you DON’T want to stress him out! Run and bounce around levels in 5 different areas, avoid knocking over hapless denizens, don’t get caught by Annette the Bullcatcher, and above all, keep your cool! Meet new critter friends to help Esteban achieve his dreams of being the best he can possibly be. Replay levels to improve your scores!

Oh, and for those people who think Insomniac Games is all about themselves these days:

Developed by independent development studio Insomniac Games, the creators of Ratchet & Clank, Sunset Overdrive, and Spyro the Dragon.

Ratchet and Clank will never have a real full-game again, will it? ;_;

^Uh, they're doing a re-imagining of the 1st game for the PS4, to coincide with the movie. That will be a full-length game. Both studios have been working on it. <.<;

Hmmm, the game doesn't look like much. Maybe it's better than it looks.

Personally, I think it's a decent game as long as you're willing to support both Insomniac Games and children for a good cause. I felt happy to comply with their intentions.

I've seen some of the development sessions on Twitch. It looks nifty, but I don't own Steam. *shrug*

You do realize that Steam is merely an iTunes for computer games, right mate? Since it's that way, Steam is free. It's most of the games on there that aren't, with a few clear exceptions including but not limited to Team Fortress 2 and DOTA 2.

Plus, Steam has achievements and an in-game overlay that kind of works similarly to those systems seen on the Xbox, so all in all, Steam is a legitimate gaming platform.

That's okay mate, because you only need a computer that's good enough for your mum to accidentally watch up NSFW videos without lag.

In further detail, you actually just need a computer with an Pentium 4 @ 2.4 GHz and 1 GB RAM, as well as a shiny little computer chip that will run so-called "DX 9 graphics." That being said, a Windows XP office desktop machine will do just fine.
