New Website Makes It Easier To See New Games On Steam 

Chances of me clicking on Langoth in Steam's buried "All New Releases" list to get all of this info were very low.

With so many games coming out on Steam each week and the service's fondness for focusing on "popular" and "recommended" new releases, it's easier for smaller games to fall through the cracks. What's On Steam is a website that gives every new game on Steam equal treatment.

Launched earlier this month by the folks at indie developer Dejobaan Games (Drunken Robot Pornography, Drop That Beat Like An Ugly Baby,) What's On Steam is a website that puts every game released on Steam on the same page. Each game gets six slots for screenshots, a short description and price. What's On Steam also delivers six-second trailers for each new release, giving folks a quick flash of the games in action.

Every game. Only games.

Though the site has only been up for a couple of weeks, I've already found myself going to What's On Steam more often that navigating the new release section of the official Steam app. Dejobaan designed the site (with Valve's blessing) as a way for gamers and the gaming press to get a better idea of the games being released without having to click through a ton of stuff.

See? Told you there are a lot of games released on Steam each week.

    Does Steam get new games? I thought they were all Greenlight games nowadays.

    Why is there only 50 games at a time on that whole website? Am I missing something?

    The last two games jump from 3 days ago to 131 days ago...

    This is a good way to tell how much junk gets made and published, that and anime point and click RPG story games :P

    Thats how bad Steam is, That websites like this need to exist just so ppl know whats new in the store, Do ppl still swear by Valve? Still think Valve is God's gift to gaming? Steam is a bad storefront and brings nothing good to gaming. Can not wait for Steam to start getting the recognition they deserve & the gaming public's ire.

      It doesn't do anything you can't already do with Steam's search, it just formats the results differently. If you compare the site with the search link I gave above you'll find they list the same games in the same order.

        So my rant was unjustified? ;)

          Ha, well it's how you feel. I do think Steam can improve its UX, I just don't think it's as dire as some people think.
