Gameforge.com plans to launch 24/7 streams for its games on Steam

German MMO specialist Gameforge has announced plans to begin streaming its projects literally all the time via Steam.

That's according to a post on Facebook, in which the company asked its community to let them know what games they would stream and at what times. Presumably, the idea here is to curate 24/7 content to broadcast via Valve's platform.

Streaming was quietly rolled out to Steam earlier this year, first spotted with the launch of Devolver Digital and Deconstructeam's The Red Strings Club in January of this year.

Gameforge's releases are primarily free-to-play so having constant promotion of its titles will, in theory, boost both engagement and spending with its project.

"We are planning to launch 24/7 streaming on Steam. We strongly believe this can be put into reality with your help," the company wrote.

"The base of every game is the community and Steam is a huge audience where you can present your favourite game. Show the world how you master the challenges, share your expertise and help others to discover some of our best games."
