C2 definetly has to get on Steam. It would mean a direct competition against GameMaker. Obvious witch one will win.

I mean, I am sure quite a few rather rich nerds have bought the whole package of Game Maker. Hurry before more money is burned! :D

Just opened a support ticket on Steam Support for telling them about C2. If the community wants it, it will be added.

Considering Game Maker already advertises itself as 'free' with "priced add-ons", I imagine using Construct's licenses in a similar manner would easily beat them at their own game. Even with the recent price increase for C2's licenses, it still trumps Game Maker's entire package by a mile.

Construct 2 need a good game to be submitted in Steam to advertise the engine, like gamemaker what doing, beside that also it will be good to have some special features from steam api, like achievements that can be integrated with games, i dunno if this possible with Awesomium.

@Ashley, if game maker is there, how about try contacting them to ask how they did it? They migh tell what you need to do to get Valves atention.

Construct must not be there only by the fact that the game maker already there. It should be there because it's a great tool, and it will be there, deservedly. But that is the question whether to Construct the use of Steam. Their pricing policy I do not like. Their policies in relation to clients, I don't like. Possible spread of Construct via Steam can increase success and sales, not the lesser possibility of losing reputation in Steam scandals.

I am encouraged by the openness that exists in the community scirra now. Perhaps the best way to own store (which is already there) games created by Construct, or even its own API for developers, which will work with scirra arcade, and on the web sites of their own. Spend karma and profit, returning at the mercy of Valve, who can not afford anything else.DrNickTo2012-10-03 16:20:45

As I understand, Greenlight is indeed the place to go to be accepted, for non-game software as well. Not that it can't be in by other means, just that Greenlight accepts all types of products.

Greenlight doesn't accept non-game software yet.

When the question was asked in the Greenlight forums, this was the response:
[quote="Valve Employee on Greenlight forum"]For now just hang tight. We'll be adding software support in the future.[/quote]

Interesting, because what I've read in the press says otherwise, probably a miscommunication somewhere? Or maybe just not open yet.

Wikipedia says the same about greenlight supporting software, but I must admit that I did not check Steam's forums.
