Best selling, experienced developers, and big publishers have figured out a number of tricks to the Steam Algorithm that allows them to get more visibility on their games. Unfortunately, these tricks are usually only shared among experienced devs or by high-paid consultants. In this talk I will expose these weak points so everyone has a chance to get the most possible visibility for their game.


Developers of all success levels will leave this talk with a long list of actions that likely will increase their visibility and sales on Steam.

Intended Audience

This talk is for anyone who has a game on Steam. If you are a publisher, a veteran game developer, or even a first time indie, you will learn something from this talk.
