Software Added To Steam Greenlight

Valve continues to tinker and update it's community-driven Steam Greenlight process by adding non-gaming software for the first time. Software works just like games where the community can decide which projects they'd see available on Steam.

"Additionally, developers of games or software that are early in their development or creative process can now post their early work to start building a community and getting feedback from prospective customers," Valve says.

"Concepts can be posted for free, but the voting on these items serves only to give the developer data and feedback and does not lead toward getting the game distributed on Steam."

Other changes made in this update:

  • The updated front page of Steam Greenlight now highlights recent submissions and Friends' favorites as well as recent news
  • Developers can now add additional contributors to their items in Greenlight for the purpose of moderating and responding to community feedback
  • A new widget-creator has been added under the "About" section to help promote your Steam Greenlight entry
  • The FAQ has been updated to add some new questions and include information about Steam business in general
  • Steam Greenlight logos are now available for download, also listed under the "About" section
