Valve allowing non-game software to be sold through Steam seemed like the next logical step for the platform, but the company has gone one step further. Now, developers can post this kind of software on Steam Greenlight for the community to leave feedback on.

Additionally, "concepts" can be posted to Greenlight free of charge to allow developers to showcase their work earlier and see what users have to say, however, voting for these items won't result in them getting distributed on Steam.

Even still, there's value to be gained through this process and not having to pay the $100 fee on concept submissions sounds like a good balance.

Today's update also did the following:

  • The updated front page of Steam Greenlight now highlights recent submissions and Friends' favorites as well as recent news
  • Developers can now add additional contributors to their items in Greenlight for the purpose of moderating and responding to community feedback
  • A new widget-creator has been added under the "About" section to help promote your Steam Greenlight entry
  • The FAQ has been updated to add some new questions and include information about Steam business in general
  • Steam Greenlight logos are now available for download, also listed under the "About" section
