It's an exploration based reflex heavy platformer where instead of jumping you reverse gravity. 
 
Example: instead of jumping over a pit of spikes you walk over them on the ceiling.

Ha, the title of this thread is exactly what I thought when I opened Steam :D
 
I've been waiting for ages for this to make it to Steam.

Sure took it a while to get onto Steam. I wonder what the hold-up was. :O

Brought it, then realised I thought It was another game. This doesn't detract from its awesome-osity!

It's kinda funny how they're selling it at 10% off... Which amounts to a savings of fifty cents because it's cheap! And looks awesome! I'm totally going to buy this.

Yeah, something wrong with my connection too, half of the time I try to open a web page I get time out errors and stuff, which was rather scary when I purchased the game as I got that at first too, it seems they only charged me once though, and I did get the games (purchased it along with Chime), and got them downloaded within seconds, so I'm happy anyway.

nope
 
I don't really think achievements would fit this game ... except for "don't die" there is nothing really you can "achieve" besides making it to the end :)

@DeF:  well you could have achievements like get all of he orbs, die 10000 times, find the crazy elephant, things like that.

There are no actual Steam achievements. But there are 'achievements' within the game itself with various things that can be unlocked by completing them.

I managed to die 142 times on the first level. Isn't that achievement worthy?

I'm going to blame a bit of it on something about the game or my keyboard that makes the directional keys lock up occasionally, I think at least 30 or 40 of those death were because the guy kept walking right into spikes upon respawn because he was stuck walking in that direction for a few seconds. It was especially annoying on "Trench Warfare" where it could lock up right after a gravity shift, making the guy either walk off the moving platform right into the roof spikes, or walking right into the soldiers after landing on the ground.

It's DRM free off steam, but it's still quite popular on Steam. Funny.

I bought this too. Fun from what I've played so far. 
 
I remember thinking that this game should have been on steam when I saw the GiantBomb quicklook a while ago, finally it is!

That was exactly my thought train. 
 
It is a really well designed, difficult but fair, platformer. Also, kick-ass music and graphics, but it's probably easier to appreciate those features if you know what a C64 is. (Actually, see Game Room for reference of that era.) Some also quite funny video game-y in-jokes, as well.
