Steam Deck: Digital book release
The digital book prescribes the story of Valve, which is a long journey and steps of development to what Valve is today. Not only that, but the digital book also describes the philosophy and their goal in developing each product.
For example, the goal behind developing the popular PC game client, Steam was to ensure a hassle-free update distribution and keep players’ precious game library under one client. They also explained the different aspects of their concept of releasing Steam Deck. The Steam Deck we have around today started its development under the relentless efforts of the team 10 years ago.
The main goal here was to provide a device with gaming opportunities without sacrificing portability, hardware which was meant to be, in their words “hackable”, and an open OS with the capabilities of welcoming the community to expand it. The digital book gives a lot of insight into the products, helpful in understanding the product much better.
