Now that‘s something I didn‘t expect. Valve announced the release of a digital book. It‘s about 50 pages long and talks about Valve, Steam, and Steam Deck.
According to Valve, the book includes:
Background on Valve and our philosophy around creating products and hardware to make our customers happy
An overview of Steam, how it came to be, and where it is now
The story of Steam Deck, how we designed it, and why we built it the way we did
Information about our collaboration with Komodo to launch in these new regions
Tons of pretty pictures of Steam Deck, prototypes, games, and more
Seeing as the book has been translated into Japanese, Korean and Chinese, it’s clear the primary purpose of the booklet is to introduce these countries to Valve before the availability of the Steam Deck.
You can download the digital book for free here, and if you happen to be at Tokyo Game Show in Japan next month, you can grab a unique physical copy.
Who said I‘m jealous? (Yes, I am!)
