Valve has announced that the fee to publish a game on Steam via Greenlight replacement Steam Direct will be $100. Originally, they were leaning toward $500, but impassioned feedback changed their minds. They also told Ars Technica that the fee will be recoupable if a game makes $1,000. Valve added that they intend to inject more “human thinking” into the algorithm, which is good, because that recoupable fee probably won’t dissuade people from posting joke games.
