BRINDIE quite for Steam Store Page mandatory items

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

Stay tuned for in-depth BRINDIE guides on optimising your Steam Store Page!

All non mandatory but much needed items are included in all BRINDIE PREMIUM packs.
