Steam is a well-known platform for digital distribution of computer games and programs. Also, developers are planning to launch a showcase with licensed movies and TV series in the near future. This service is famous for its hot sales and discounts, which could reach up to 90% in special periods. There have been cases when users purchased a game for 5 or 10 rubles, the original price of which was 1000-1500 rubles.
Stim is not only a shop, but also a social network for gamers from all over the world. Users can make friends, use chat, set up status on their personal page, recommend their favorite games and even make gifts.
To start using the service, you need to download the client and register your account. It is advisable to use anti-theft equipment. After that, you can buy games of various genres, download demos or clients free-to-play projects with free access. All of them will be added to your personal library so you can download them at any time of the day or night.
All games in the service contain media files (screenshots, video trailers) and a detailed description with system requirements and language support. Each game/programme is assigned a theme where you can discuss individual points of interest or technical problems. It is also worth highlighting the section "Games with early access". Alpha and beta versions of the expected projects often get there. Users here pay for early access, not for a completely finished product. At the bottom of the main window you can see a separate tab Steam Greenlight, where users vote to add a game to the store.
