See topic. I imagine it's been mentioned before so there probably is some reason it isn't on Steam. But on the odd chance that I'm the first one to think of this... Maybe put it on Steam?

I dunno how Steam handles developer microtransactions and whether they would want to impose using their payment system for SGE instead of buying tokens, if that's still a thing.

That or maybe there's a fee to list/maintain a submission to Steam versus self-hosting for free. Biggest advantages I could see IMO would be Steam's huge APIs and statistics, but that would only serve SGE better with a larger playerbase.

Still though, it would be super cool. :)
