BValve has removed 200 fake games from their catelog. Fake games in this sense is when a developer cobbles together a game by asset flipping using generic assets and renaming the games and selling them. They removed 173 games from two developers Silicon Echo Studios and Zonitron Productions. It turned out that it was the same person using different accounts to publish their games. Polygon reported an email that a representative sent to Valve saying they were given no warning and no opportunity to change their ways. The dev then reached out to Polygon that said they were doing shady practices for easier statistical tracking.
They have also said that have been driven out from being a developer because their reputation was destroyed and will quit the industry. This comes after Valve were explicit about making it hard for fake devs to succeed. They also nerfed their trading card system and update their algorithms to separate legit games/players from bots. Bots can have games running and sell these cards on the marketplace for money in Steam Wallets and buy games off the marketplace.

They will also be investigating romance options that are a little more dynamic than just straight forward gaining affection.
