IGF PLATFORM SPONSOR

Valve logoWhen we first released Half-Life nearly 20 years ago, it was hard to imagine what might come next. In addition to building award-winning franchises like Counter-Strike, Team Fortress, Portal, and Left 4 Dead, we’ve been able to connect millions of PC gamers with developers through the Steam platform. Nowadays, we’re pushing the envelope with worldwide Dota2 and CS:GO tournaments, and finally bringing the features and freedom of Steam into the living room with Steam Controllers, Steam Link, and Steam Machines. And in 2016, Steam VR is poised to usher in the next generation of interaction and entertainment with room-scale immersive experiences.
