Today gamers can purchase HOARD
on Steam in preparation for it's April 4th release at 25% off the normal retail price of $9.99. The pre-sale price is good until the game releases on April 4th for PCs and Macs. That's one of the reasons why I like Steam: when new games are about to be released they occasionally have discounts on them when you pre-order. I'm sure other distributors do this as well, but seeing as Steam is the only one I use it's the only one I'm familiar with and I've seen them do this plenty of times beforehand.
