    Steam’s New Rules Change How Games Stand Out

    Image: Valve / Kotaku Yesterday, Valve issued an update for devs who sell on their storefront. Starting September 1 of this year, “banner images,” referred to as “Capsules” in Steamworks, will be restricted from including a variety of accolades, current sales, and more. In the announcement of the policy change, the house of Gordon Freeman states that the previous rules weren’t defined well enough. Banner images are the equivalent of cover art on Steam.
