Steam support

Login, friends, etc., basically the same set of functionalities Game Services ANE has. Recently steam has become a really potent platform for small indie devs, so I recon there's going to be a decent demand for such extension.

    Great to hear that there is a lot of interest in Steam!

    In order to get moving with this ANE we’d really appreciate your input on what you see as the important components of Steam for a first release. Key platforms and any important functionality.

    Also, we are considering adding this as another service into the Game Services ANE. Feel free to let us know if you have any thoughts on that.

    Cheers,
    distriqt

        Apologies, we missed your last message.

        We have started development on the ANE and are currently splitting our development time between this ANE and Firebase. We are really excited about these ANEs however finding enough time to complete them quickly is always tough.

        Come on, guys, give me an answer, any answer. I just want to know what are the chances of this ever getting released.

        Still nothing new? Is there anything specific you can give me? We'll be integrating Steam in our game in a week or so and could really use an ANE like that.

        No release date as yet.

        We are still doing some initial investigations into the platform and assessing the best way for us to integrate it. And we have been doing some tests with integrating into native applications.

        Cheers

        Came back to ask how is it going :) Do you have a release date for this extension maybe?

        What I need the most is obtaining the session key for the current session. Also other standard features, like obtaining friend list and achievements.

        "Also, we are considering adding this as another service into the Game Services ANE. Feel free to let us know if you have any thoughts on that."

        Yes, I think this would be the best way to do it.

        PS. Adding PC/Mac support to other ANEs of yours (e.g. social) would be a great thing as well.
