Today we're releasing a couple of new informational resources for developers and publishers to help them get the most out of each Steam release. We've launched a new Steamworks homepage that details all the major features available to game developers via Steam and some new documentation specifically pointing out the features that can be used to help build an audience and communicate with players via Steam.
New Steamworks Homepage
We've heard from quite a few game developers that aren't aware of many of the tools and features available for free via Steamworks as part of releasing a game on Steam. So we thought it would be useful to put together a better overview page that provides a summary of all the ways that developers can make use of the Steam platform. Among these tools are ways to help build an audience, manage business, communicate with players, and solve common development challenges.
You can check out the full new information site on the homepage of Steamworks here: Steamworks - Build & Distribute Your Games on Steam
Marketing Tools & Features Documentation
We've also gotten a lot of questions from game developers about how to reach the right audience for their game and build up to a successful launch. So, we've put together a set of documentation to draw attention to the tools and features that Steam provides for game developers to reach customers and stay connects throughout the lifespan of a game. Many of these are tools that Steam has had for a long time, but who's value we haven't been good at communicating over time.
You can find this new resource here: Features And Tools, Marketing (Steamworks Documentation)
As always, please let us know what you think, or if you have any feedback.
