Nearly two full weeks since Radon Labs' RPG prequel first made its way onto digital download services comes the following press release announcing its availability on GamersGate, Impulse, and... Steam? I still don't see the game on Valve's service, but one would assume it coming later today:
THQ DEBUTS DRAKENSANG – THE RIVER OF TIME, THE PREQUEL TO THE DARK EYE BLOCKBUSTER RPG FRANCHISE, FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

Developed by the original authors of The Dark Eye, Drakensang - The River of Time, takes gamers centuries back in time into the mystical world of Aventuria – a world that previously only existed in the minds of avid The Dark Eye players.
