For this episode of Talk About Games — Gadgets 360’s weekly gaming show, we discuss what it takes to get a game on Steam. Despite the inordinate amount of poor quality titles on the biggest gaming platform on the planet, it’s not as easy as it seems to make a PC game for Steam.
To talk about this, Games Editor Rishi Alwani is joined by Vaibhav Chavan, Founder and CEO of Underdogs Gaming Studio to talk about what’s needed to bring your game to Steam.
Over the course of this episode, we dissect Steam’s refund policy, what teething issues most developers and users face with Steam, as well as the effect of subscription services such as Xbox Game Pass on single-player games. In addition this, we try to answer a question that plagues many a creator — if mobile games are supposedly more profitable, why even target Steam in the first place?
Finally, we also talk about Underdogs’ own titles for Steam such as Till the Dawn, Waiting — that borrows from the likes of Gone Home and Firewatch as well as Mukti — an adventure game set in a museum which touches on the theme of human trafficking.
All this and more in Talk About Games — Gadgets 360’s weekly gaming show. Join us every week, Friday night at 9pm IST for a brand new episode of Talk About Games.
