Turtle Cream released 'Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory' at Feb. 2012. It was available at Desura & Indievania, and Humble Store for direct selling. At now, it is available at Steam.

Sun Park, CEO of Turtle Cream found this. Selling in steam for 2 days surpassed selling for 9 months outside steam. "Steam is **cking power house, as Edmund Mcmillen said." He posted at Turtle Cream blog. "We already knew Steam is big marketplace because we bought & enjoyed many games. But we never knew it's so surprisingly big! It's like that we launched brand new game to public with full powered PR. We got another chance." He continued. "This game is more polished than what we released at Feb. So please give another chance even if you played it earlier. You will have much better experience."
