Steam Adding Non-Game Software to Its Catalog in September
Yes, we were all thinking it: This Steam Summer Sale is great for games, but what I really need is software for doing my taxes.
Relax, everyone. Gabe Newell has your back.
Starting Sept. 5, Steam will start accepting requests for the online platform to include software beyond games. Valve sent out an official press release with a few more details:
“The Software titles coming to Steam range from creativity to productivity. Many of the launch titles will take advantage of popular Steamworks features, such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save your work to your personal Steam Cloud space so your files may travel with you.
More Software titles will be added in an ongoing fashion following the September 5th launch, and developers will be welcome to submit Software titles via Steam Greenlight.”
So there you go. Are you looking to get more software through Steam? Let us know in the comments.
