PopCap games on Steam
PopCap Games (Bejeweled, Zuma) has signed a deal to distribute their line of casual titles through Valve Software's Steam network. Starting August 30th, 17 games will be available for free trial or paid download on Steam. This may become a significant financial boon to Valve, since many of the products on Steam at the moment are games or mods already connected with Valve's first-person shooters. Independent offerings include the RTS game Darwinia and the World War II FPS Red Orchestra.
