Kurisu-Chan Posted June 7, 2018 Share Posted June 7, 2018 Well...it seems like valve finally gave up on their bizarre positions about what should or should not be allowed on steam. https://steamcommunity.com/games/593110/announcements/detail/1666776116200553082 "Valve is not a small company - we're not a homogeneous group. The online debates around these topics play out inside Valve as well. We don't all agree on what deserves to be on the Store. " Spoiler So we ended up going back to one of the principles in the forefront of our minds when we started Steam, and more recently as we worked on Steam Direct to open up the Store to many more developers: Valve shouldn't be the ones deciding this. If you're a player, we shouldn't be choosing for you what content you can or can't buy. If you're a developer, we shouldn't be choosing what content you're allowed to create. Those choices should be yours to make. Our role should be to provide systems and tools to support your efforts to make these choices for yourself, and to help you do it in a way that makes you feel comfortable. Spoiler With that principle in mind, we've decided that the right approach is to allow everything onto the Steam Store, except for things that we decide are illegal, or straight up trolling. So basically : the store will be flooded with even more crap, but at least, freedom?.. I dunno, i think steam allowing any game to release on it is a stupid idea, we'll get flooded with even more crappy games that will sink any good game that doesn't have a huge marketing campaign, the visibility of games will be lowered.
