A new game popped up on Steam today for just a few minutes, but someone caught a screenshot of the page before it went down. It's called "Steam: The Game."

The description seems to just describe Steam itself, not a new game of any kind. It matches up to an entry on steamdb.info that refers to it as a Tutorial App. For those who don't know, SteamDB crawls through the Steam databases to look for data, and in the past has shown new games before they were announced.

So what is this? Its timing makes it seem like something related to the upcoming Steam Summer Sale.

I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. I was ready to potentially write it off as a hoax until it showed up on SteamDB. Since it's there we know it's legit, but we'll have to wait for some more info from Valve.

So all of those trading cards we get by playing games might actually have a purpose? I guess we shall see in due time.

Oh they already have a purpose. You can combine them into badges and get coupons and stuff from combining them.

Hm, that's something I may have to look into some time.

Hope this turns into something cool. When is the summer sale?

I don't think anyone knows for sure yet. Someone always leaks the date early, though.

When you visit that link you gave me, is it in German? I'm not sure why, but when I go to a Steam page it's in German and I have to click the button to translate the page. Any ideas?

Cool, so it's not just me then, huh?

No, i've seen bugs like that before.

I sure hope the cards don't have a purpose in a game, as I've been selling them off as I get them.
