But there will still be games. Don't worry.

Valve have made a big announcement overnight, saying that Steam will begin offering more than just games. As of September 5, the digital distribution service will be offering other types of software, including creativity and productivity programs. Offering these new programs via Steam also gives publishers the chance to integrate their software with Steamworks, which will in turn offer all the good things we love about Steam already, like auto-updating and cloud saves.
Steam has been known to offer content other than games in the past, such as digital magazines, not to mention Indie Game: The Movie, but this announcement will mark Valve’s biggest move since expanding to Mac in 2010.
