Default who gets the money?

i was thinking about the whole steam thing and how valve will make all the profit from people buying hl2 over steam. what i was wondering is if valve is going to be be like a publisher for ritual when cz is sold over steam. Is valve going to have to give ritual a chunk of the profit, or is ritual getting all of it, or valve getting it all, or what?
I'm guessing the answer will be logical but i was just wondering.

What your saying doesn't make any sense, valve payed ritual, a development team, to make the game-- how the actual game is published doesn't have anything to do with ritual. Second, valve isn't a publisher-- but steam gives them the ability to not necessarily have to go through a publisher in order to get the game in people's hands.

I understand that valve isnt a publisher, what i was thinking is that valve could play publisher by selling a game on steam and taxing the developer.
So what your saying is that valve payed ritual a flat payment for developing cz and is doesn't matter if it sells well or not to ritual (moneywise)? Is that accurate information?

No one is going to get an official response on this matter. It's really no one's business.

it's simple, no publisher = save huge money. online availability appeals to alot of people ie. more people buy game, and if price is same online, valve gets a hell of alot more money, not the game designers like ritual

Yeah, DLing 20 gigs of games every time you nuke your drive doesn't really appeal to me either.
