  • Please, another question.

    If I want to publish my game in steam, it is obligatory to use steamworks or steamworks is only to include achievements in my game?.

    I want to publish my game without achievements, so I do not need to use steamworks, do I just have to export for windows and it's ready for steam?

  • I want to publish my game without achievements, so I do not need to use steamworks, do I just have to export for windows and it's ready for steam?

    Exactly that. As long as the game runs from an .exe for windows, you don't need to include Steamworks.

    However, including some Steam integration and features might help improve the visibility and desirability of your game on Steam.

    Steam4C2 can help with this.
