In Steam’s policy, it is mentioned that platform users can request a refund for any title, as long as they have not exceeded two hours of play, the developer commented that there were many refunds, which left him with very little profit.
As a result, developer also announced that his next title, From Day To Day (a demo of which can be played on Steam), is unlikely to see the light of day in the near future.
Currently, Summer of ’58 is available at a 23% discount for $ 6.92 or regional price.
