Steam Now Offering Non-Gaming Software
It's come a little later than originally planned, but you can now purchase non-gaming software on Steam. The first list of titles include GameMaker: Studio, 3D-Coat, ArtRage Studio Pro, 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark 11, CameraBag 2, and Source Filmmaker. Valve is celebrating the event by offering 10% off all the products until next Tuesday, which is a nice way to save a bit of cash. Source Filmmaker is a public beta so no purchase is necessary, while GameMaker: Studio has a free version with purchaseable upgrades adding more content. All the programs benefit from Steamworks, so any updates can be automatically downloaded to keep you benchmarking, editing photos, creating models, or even building a game. More titles are on the way, so keep a lookout on the Steam software page to see what arrives.
