Pretty awesome if you ask me! .. This is the second email I received:Hey everyone!
The Natural Selection 2 Engine Test and Spark tools are now available on Steam!
If pre-ordered NS2, you will receive a special code shortly (if you haven't already) with instructions for unlocking it and downloading it through Steam. If you don't want to wait, you can retrieve your key manually (http://www.unknownworlds.com/ns2/retrieve).
If you haven't yet pre-ordered (what ARE you waiting for?) you can still do so and activate NS2 on Steam now (http://www.naturalselection2.com/buy). You can play around with the tools, walk around a couple test levels and shoot some target dummies while you're waiting for the alpha.
We've also released an update today: we've activated the server browser, fixed restoring the graphics device when you alt-tab in and out of the game, shored up some visual differences between spot lights in the editor and the game, and added the preliminary documentation on the engine's scripting API.
Releasing on Steam is another big milestone for us, so we hope you're as excited about it as we are!

P.S. If you've previously installed the Engine Test or Spark SDK, you'll probably want to uninstall it to save space.
Pretty neatHello Domien,
Thank you for pre-ordering Natural Selection 2! Your support has made a huge
difference for our company and has allowed us to stay independent.
As we get close to the Natural Selection 2 alpha release, we are now
distributing all of the updates to the tools and engine through Steam. So you
will need to activate your copy of NS2 on Steam through the following steps:
1. Install Steam from: http://store.steampowered.com/about
2. Run Steam, then go to Games -> "Activate a Product on Steam..."
3. Enter your NS2 Product Code: ZBY9G-RLDMA-ETW6V-P3FFQ-I93FZ
NS2 should now appear in your list of available games. Just double click it to
download it and updates will be installed automatically. The tools can be
launched by right clicking on Natural Selection 2 and selecting "Run Launch
Thanks again for your support!
