Sekai Project have revealed that they are attempting to bring the massively popular Vocaloid-cenrtic 3D animation software MikuMikuDance to Steam Greenlight, sure to get western fans excited even if an English variant of the famed freeware has been around for some time sans DRM.
Some have questioned the significance of bringing such freeware to Steam – though the prospect of giving the software and its masses of users access to the Steam Workshop might very well make the endeavor worthwhile.
There is no information regarding whether additional content or features will be added to the Steam release, but the program’s arrival onto the platform will surely help in attaining Miku’s goal of world domination.
Reactions from Steam users have been predictably positive as well:
“So ready for this! I had no idea where I could get MMD before, but this makes it really easy now! I’m excited to get to use this!”
“god i’d imagine making models and videos and pictures would be easier if this ends up using the steam workshop which has me EXCITED!”
“Imagine how much easier it would be to add models and effects.”
“The otaku in me wants this game on steam immediately”
“As someone who used this, I can say this is a good product. Lots of people make stuff for you to use. Even pokemon!”
