Hello, I’m not sure if you’ve heard of humble Bundle, but many gamers with huge game library’s have huge humble Bundle collections. The web interface for humble Bundle is very clunky and can be painful to use, but i think you could fix that. Humble Bundle supports straight downloads (wget compatible) and so its highly likely you would be able to create a function that scrapes the games you own via humble Bundle and allows you to download them through game room. Might be too much effort for a slightly more niche market but just an idea 🙂
+1 for this, and also, you should check out this documentation I compiled for Humble Bundle’s API: https://www.schiff.io/projects/humble-bundle-api
Nice API documentation! Just quickly thinking about it, can’t games bought on Humble Bundle be Steam Games ? Because then I’d have to decide (or add options for it) so that Humble Bundle is “dominant” on Steam or the inverse, and whatever the decision I already see many people wishing the invert decision done…
When you buy a game from Humble Bundle, sometimes it’ll be a Steam key, sometimes it’ll be a DRM-free download, and sometimes you’ll get both. If it’s a Steam key, then you’ll probably want to outright ignore its existence in Humble Bundle — the user might have given the key to someone else, so you should just go off whether it exists in their Steam library. If there’s a Humble download AND a Steam option available, preferring the Steam version is probably best — realistically I think that’s what most people prefer.
