New currencies coming to the Steam store

I know this is rather old news but I don’t have much time to post here. I can’t believe this is finally happening… after 9 fucking years (!) Steam introduces more currencies to the Steam store. Details below!

This is an e-mail to all Steamworks developers from Valve Software – New currencies to expect on Steam:

“Pricing should be entered as soon as possible, with display of these new currencies scheduled to go live in time for our 2017 Autumn and Winter Sales. To enter pricing, sign in to the Steamworks Developer Site and select Pricing from the Apps & Packages drop-down. You will see green-colored recommendations filled in for new currencies, based on your selected USD base price. These recommended prices can be accepted or adjusted at your discretion. As a reminder, if you do not have pricing entered for a country after a local currency is set live on the Steam storefront, your game will be unavailable for sale in that country.”

“We have also updated our recommended pricing matrix for new and existing currencies. Our goal is to update these recommendations annually, so as to better help developers succeed in markets worldwide. Pricing decisions on Steam are entirely in the hands of you the developer, and we encourage you to always do what’s best for your players. You can find more information and suggested best practices in the Steamworks Pricing Documentation.”

“*PLN pricing is specific to Poland, but as always any game licenses purchased within an EEA country (either directly or as a gift) can be redeemed by any user within the EEA.”

“0,99 euro – 3,59 zł
1,99 euro – 7,19 zł
2,99 euro – 10,99 zł
3,99 euro – 14,49 zł
4,99 euro – 17,99 zł
5,99 euro – 21,99 zł
6,99 euro – 25,49 zł
7,99 euro – 28,99 zł
8,99 euro – 32,99 zł
9,99 euro – 35,99 zł
14,99 euro – 53,99 zł
19,99 euro – 71,99 zł
22,99 euro – 89,99 zł
27,99 euro – 107,99 zł”

Which means Poland is no longer getting fucked on Steam.

Steam store is now blocked in Malaysia

It seems that the Steam store is currently disabled in Malaysia because of the game Fight of Gods. The client itself works, you can still download your games that you’re subscribed to but you can no longer buy anything from the store.

That’s pretty fucked up that in 2017 because of one title (a game about gods…) whole service is now disabled or possibly banned, even if they restore (or already restored?) access to the store is pretty worrying that shit like this happens these days.

Here’s the original screenshot that’s been floating around on the net:

Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission claimed that the game “degraded religions and religious leaders, and posed a huge threat to racial unity and harmony.” because it features religious icons like Jesus Christ and Gautama Buddha.

You can buy the game on Steam, it’s currently in Early Access for less than €5. If you don’t like the game or it’s contents just don’t buy it and move on. That’s how civilized world works.

Steam: Gifting system has been improved!

Steam Gifting will now be a system of direct exchange from gift buyer to gift receiver – Valve has removed the Gift to E-mail and Gift to Inventory options.

Benefits from the new system:

  • Scheduling Gifts Is Even More Straightforward. Go ahead and buy a gift months in advance and have it delivered to a friend on time, every time.
  • Declined Gifts Resolve The Way They Should. In the old system, a declined gift would sneak back into the giver’s inventory and remain on their bill. Now, if a recipient already has the title, or just doesn’t want it, they can click decline and the purchase is refunded directly to the gift giver.
  • Safe Cross-Country Gifting. No more worrying if a Gift to E-mail or Gift to Inventory is going to work for a friend, gifts sent through the new system will always work on the receiver’s account. When there is a large difference in pricing between countries, gifting won’t be available and you’ll know before purchase.

These changes are now available. Pre-existing gifts will be unaffected by this change.
