        Steam isn’t gonna just flat-out say “look this is totally different than anything in your library” because that implies you might not like it. So they’ll find something you own to compare it to even if it’s a stretch.

        Might be because of the tags.
        Steam's tagging system is utterly retarded so practically every game has every tag possible

    For steam, it's a free game that could get/retain customers, and at it's worst it just takes up some space on their servers.
    For the devs, it's a way to build a portfolio, or gain some fans so they can sell their later works. In a lot of cases, nobody would buy your game if you added a pricetag, but some fag might donate to you if they play your game and like it.

    How do you hide your games from steam friends besides making your account private?
    I have some people on friend list who I know in real life and I wouldn't want them to know.

    If your game is free, then Steam's 30% cut of it is $0

      Don't you still have to pay a $100 publishing fee? Seems like you lose money. Of course if your game is really good you could possibly make up with merchandise, but 99% of free games are shovelware

    Nobody really knows. Valve lost their way a decade ago but since Steam prints money with very little effort or upkeep required they just keep existing and doing silly things.

    So that someone might actually see your game and play it. That $100 entry fee gets you lot, Steam basically bends backwards and does a lot of heavy-lifting to get your game in front of players' eyes, without you having to do anything.

    Compare that to something like itch.io, where you can promote promote promote, put out ads, try to get friends and family to download your game in hopes of getting the algorithm to pick up your game, and your game will still most likely never been seen by another human being. You are entirely at the mercy of the mods and their heavily-curated lists.

    $100 is a small price to pay just to get some fucking distribution power in this saturated market.

        No. I am speaking from experience. I didn't do a damn thing and I started getting a lot of views and even downloads. Then once the game passed 20 reviews steam started promoting my game even more and I started seeing that I was getting thousands of views per day. Their algorithm actually tries to promote games, which I appreciate.

    There was a time when they only translated Acerola Games, they were internet heroes because of it. Now, they just take the two year old "completed" projects from F95 and license them for profit. Even the pricing is insane on older games. To make things worse, they sit on new Acerola games forever.
