Steam to offer non-gaming software

Steam to offer non-gaming software
Valve has announced that they have moved beyond being just a games distributor.

Starting in early September, the company will offer new apps, with genres like Accounting, Animation & Modeling, Audio Production, Design & Illustration, Education, Photo Editing, Software Training, Utilities, Video Production, and Web Publishing.



All of the software titles will include Steamworks features like easy installation, auto-updates and Steam Cloud accessibility for resuming where you left off.

"The 40 million gamers frequenting Steam are interested in more than playing games," added Mark Richardson of Valve. "They have told us they would like to have more of their software on Steam, so this expansion is in response to those customer requests."

Devs can submit titles via Steam Greenlight.
