Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Can I put a PC game on Steam and make it playable on Android with the same account?

So I want to put my game on Steam AND Android, where players could use the same account to play on both systems.

I made some research and there seems to be a Steam app for Android but I'm unsure if it lets you play Steam games (I can't test it myself because I don't own an Android device)

Thank you in advance.

edit: The game would be built with Android in mind obviously, but released on PC as well. I'm not trying to play a PC game on Android, I'm trying to make a game that works on both.

Product Version: UE 4.10

It is technically possible to do a lot of Steam interactions on Android, but you would need to create your own online subsystem to accomplish it, as well as hosting your own web-API to manage requests. Steam does not have a native Android interface, so your game will need to talk to a web server hosted by you, which talks to steam via steam's web api. It will be a lot of work and you still won't have a 1-1 feature set.

Glad I found that out from you before trying to release my game on Steam. A feature I want is for Android players to join PC host sessions. I think I'll just keep it on LAN for now.
