Right around the beginning of August, Valve announced that Steam would begin selling non-game software at the start of September. After a month with no sign of said software appearing on the service, Steam has finally fulfilled their plans.
The digital distribution platform now offers six pieces of software in addition to Valve’s own Source Filmmaker. The programs being sold are as follows:
ArtRage Studio Pro
Espousing the advantages of Steam, Valve sent out a press releases stating:
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.
In addition, Valve is celebrating the new software by offering it at a 10% discount for the next week.
