Asking for a friend myself :)

Some creators here have released games on Steam. I want to learn how this can be done, since I plan to release a new game and while originally it will be free (and always free while here in AGS forums) in the future it can cost a token amount (most probably $1)

Instead of someone typing in or copy/pasting the process from google and you having to wait for that, wouldn't it be easier for both parties if you googled it yourself?

Not being snarky or anything. Just seems easier and faster for you as well.

I will try that too - just thought of pre-emptive inaction first, cause that's my way  (nod)

I'm actually kind of curious about this myself. I have never done it, but this vid seems to have pretty clear instructions that I'm assuming are accurate (?). The comments section has a number of questions/answers that might be helpful, too.

Have you considered also adding it to Itch.io, so it will be DRM-free?   :smiley:

Ahh, sorry, thought I already checked but didn't see it.  Great to know I was wrong.   :cool:
