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"

I believe Steam would provide you with the documentation and help with that feature. I know of a game that was developed and worked fine and there join through steam feature went down because steam made an update. that was broken...

and then it didn't work, the developers kept saying that they are waiting on steam to fix the update. So possible that is all managed by steam. Don't take my word on it though.

also, just a bit more advice if this is a first project for you, you will need to have a steam account that has been active for over the last 3 years, and if it is your first submission, It will have to go on the greenlit page. and the minimum requirements to submit a game on greenllight. is 1 video clip of the game, 4 images of the game and $100 payment. I am pretty sure anyway.
