Steam Store Page optimisation
Please note that there are many other items you can create to improve your store page. The Steamworks system does not mark them as mandatory, however we recommend that you prepare them anyhow. Some of the non mandatory but essential items are:
- adding Developer, Publisher and Franchise connections
- researching and adding Search Keywords
- customizing your Steam Store Page background
- adding more trailers, ideally at least one gameplay and one cinematic trailer
Keep in mind that Steamworks requires more than just setting up your store page before allowing you to release your game
