Join Jonathan Sears for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding game and application detail pages, part of SteamOS for Developers First Look.
…One of the most important things for…any developer when submitting your game to Steam.…Is to consider what's going to be displayed on your game details page.…So here we have the game details page for Portal 2.…And you'll see there's a trailer playing.…If we go to the right, you'll also see we have some screen shots.…These get submitted when you submit your…game through Steam Greenlight, so make sure…you spend some time and choose the right ones when you're submitting your game.…Next, you'll see we have four pods along the bottom of the screen.…First, is the purchase options.…
How can users buy the game?…Let's take a look at this.…So, in this case there's five.…The first one is pretty much what you'd expect.…You can just buy it outright by itself.…No frills.…Next, you can buy two copies.…This game is co-op, and so this allows you to…send a copy to a friend and you can play together.…You also have the Portal bundle.…This gives you the first game, as well as a second game at a discounted rate.…So as you can see here, I get both games for $5 off.…
