Someone mentioned that Steam was where people mainly get their games.  Are the games on Steam played online or downloaded?

 

Thank you,

If you're interested in games and/or game dev should probably just download Steam and get familiar with it. They're about to have a big winter sale, so now would be the time.

it has recently become a tsunami of shite cheap games

 
(Which - despite massive amounts of complaining - has caused no actual problems for anyone anywhere.)

 

This. Actually, it's not anywhere near over saturated yet. I have an awful game on steam I bought the rights to/added cards etc, and it's making around $180/month.

 

There's still a large opportunity for .50 shovelware with steam features (Trading cards/achievements etc).

Does Steam only accept games from major publishers, or will I take a game from an indie developer?

Any new developer (Without a major publisher) has to go through greenlight.

Basically you pay $100, and upload a description/screenshots of your game, and people vote on whether or on they'd buy it. If you get a few thousand yes votes, steam is willing to host your game.

What is the typical earnings for a typical tile based game, pretty great?

 

And where\how is everyone selling indie games besides Steam and Greenlight? 

 

(With some figures if possible?)

 

Thank you so much,

Joshua

There are a lot more - like F.e. itch.io and gog.com ... you can also host on your site for example.

 

I can't give you any figures as I don't currently have any product on Steam.
