Valve gives Steam update to Game Republic members

On Tuesday 23rd May, Game Republic held an online Q&A with Valve, with an opportunity for members to ask questions about Steam and the new Steam Deck Console.

Alden Kroll and Erik Peterson from Valve answered questions for nearly an hour on all aspects of Steam including Wishlists, sales and discounts, discoverability, Steam Deck verification and VR games.

For members there was invaluable information to help them sell their games on the world’s number one PC games platform, including using Wishlists instead of pre-purchases (so the Steam algorithm picks up all the sales on day one to help get your game better promoted), making sure you include gameplay videos and screenshots prominently on your game’s homepage and how developers should look to translate their games into other languages such as simplified Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Turkish if they want to maximise sales.

Game Republic members have full access to the hour-long Q&A with Valve, as well as some essential links to stats and information on Steam – if you couldn’t make the event live as a GR member, get in touch with us for the exclusive link.
