The world of computer games is open to you

Some computer games are so good that they can tear a person away from reality for many weeks. It is not surprising because the development takes much time and money, and even the most minor details are well thought out. The game world is so diverse that everyone can find something according to their taste. This can be done through a single platform — Steam. We will tell you about it.

What is this program?

Steam for Mac is a service for buying and launching computer games, communicating between players, creating gamer communities, and much more related to gaming. In the early 2000s, Steam, a brainchild of Valve, was used only for the distribution and activation of this developer's product. Today it is a full-fledged social network with many features, supporting various games and applications from different developers, such as Sega, Epik Games, Ubisoft, Rockstar Games, etc. In addition to extensive and well-known studios, you can find many creations of independent developers on this platform.

What makes this service so good?

Steam has become a top-rated service among gamers and game developers because it can offer the parties what they need. Developers got a program for selling their projects worldwide. Unlike retailers, there is no need to spend much money to publish games, worrying about whether it can recoup the investment to sell through Steam.

Gamers, in turn, were allowed to buy games quickly and conveniently, test projects before release, enjoy collaborative network battles in a fair environment, add friends, etc. All purchased games and achievements are linked to the user's Steam account. That's why you can access your account on any device. All you need to do is to download Steam Client and sign in to your account. You must buy and activate Steam game keys to get access to the desired projects.

What can you do with this program?

In addition to the primary function of Steam — buying and installing games — it has many other features. It allows you to:

  • install game updates on a priority basis — the platform does this automatically;

  • do not think about the safety of game data — Steam also takes care of this;

  • create and save backups of game distributions;

  • activate supported games purchased in boxed versions;

  • buy games as a gift for other users;

  • get a refund if you do not like the game (the game can be played for up to 14 days after purchase on the condition that it has been running for no longer than 2 hours);

  • create personal pages and groups, and join communities;

  • find like-minded people and friends;

  • exchange messages and chat in the built-in voice chat;

  • share your achievements;

  • exchange, buy, and sell in-game items, such as inventory, cards, and more;

  • take screenshots, shoot videos, and post them on YouTube;

  • record and broadcast streams without any third-party software;

  • get the latest news about game world events;

  • listen to music stored on the device instead of game soundtracks;

  • let other users access your game library;

  • customize your page design;

  • use the developer's technical support services.
