46 Steam (software) Steam  is a digital distribution, digital rights management,  multiplayer and communications platform developed by  Valve Corporation . It is used to distribute games and  related media online, from small independent developers to  larger software houses; in October 2012, Valve expanded  the service to include non-gaming software. Steam provides  the user with installation and automatic management of  software across multiple computers, community features  such as friends lists and groups, cloud saving, and in-game  voice and chat functionality.  Windows: September 12, 2003 Mac OS X: May 12, 2010 Linux: February 14, 2013 http://store.steampowered.com/ Indie games  are video games that are made without the  support of a video game publisher (Nintendo, EA, Blizzard,  Sony etc.). Steam is a digital distribution gaming company.  Together they make beautiful music. Since Steam doesn't  require gaming companies (or in this case, the individual  creators of the game) to print CD or DVD ROMs to  distribute their games to the world it's no wonder that indie  games would be plentiful on Steam. Add in the fact that  there are millions of Steam users, and that Steam does a  terrific job of marketing their games with numerous sales  and deals, getting exposure for your indie game is easier  and better than ever.
