Remember that it is a 100$ recoupable fee which means you'll get the money back so there is no risk whatsoever as it is almost impossible to not have sales to cover that on Steam :P

So don't worry, this will not change anything and the flood of games will sadly continue to poor in.

@Anonnymitet - actually it'll be more like trying to make money on the Apple Store. I can see hundreds of titles released every week.

@ome6a1717 Yeah, I gave up on the mobile market a long time ago with all the thousands of ketchapp game clones released everyday. Just look at the top 100 on the app store. One company, "King" in this case has 24 of their games on the top 100 list and they are all clones of candy crush. That if anything proves how messed up the mobile platform is atm.

Anyway, I hope Steam and consoles manages to avoid the same fate. But I must admit that I'm really worried about the future of game development.

Recoupable could be interpreted in different ways, and it doesn't say what they mean exactly.
It's kind of a strange way to set things up, especially since I can't imagine anyone not wanting their money back.

"Steam:
Heres your money back."

"Gamedev:
Nah you keep it since I'm an independant developer, and therefore have loads of cash sitting around."

Edit:
Update to an update of an update.

tldr: Make a grand get your deposit back.
