Non-Game Software Is Now Available On Steam

Programs like GameMaker and 3DMark are now available on Steam.

Valve sent over a press release today to announce the news. Here’s what they have to offer:

ArtRage Studio Pro

CameraBag 2

GameMaker: Studio


3DMark Vantage

3DMark 11

Valve adds:

Many of the launch titles will take advantage of popular Steamworks features, such as easy installation, automatic updating, and the ability to save your work to your personal Steam Cloud space so your files may travel with you.

GameMaker Studio, for example, features integration with Steam Workshop that allows GameMaker users to share their work via Steam.

You can browse through Steam’s software offerings — all 10% off during the launch — on their website.


  • If Valve can manage to get Adobe and Autodesk on board with this, and throw in something like the OpenOffice suite as well, they will have a very well rounded software catalogue and will be ready to take on the big boys. I’ll be surprised if they can pull it off, but if anybody is going to, it would be Valve. They managed to get all the big game publishers on Steam back in the day, so maybe there is a chance.

    • I dunno – drop the price of the adobe/autodesk software, slap it on steam and you’ve got sure sales. That stuff is industry standard, and pirated mostly because of ridiculous price points.. Open office is a no brainier.
