Steam has introduced an innovative solution to address the financial loss faced by developers and the need for players to try out games before purchasing. Currently, players can request refunds within a 2-hour gameplay limit, but this leads to losses for developers.

To resolve this issue, Steam has implemented a new approach that combines elements of demos and limited-time access. Players are now given 1 hour and 30 minutes to experience the full game within a specific timeframe. This allows them to make informed decisions about purchasing the game while minimizing financial losses for developers.

The new approach benefits both parties by providing players with a comprehensive gaming experience and increasing the chances of attracting potential buyers for developers. Steam’s innovative solution strikes a balance between the needs of developers and players, creating a healthier and more sustainable ecosystem for all involved.
