There's a flat fee with Steam Direct. Be sure you have that much or else, no dice, not even for the underprivileged.

How much? It's 100 USD last I checked.

I plan on eventually putting a game on the STEAM store

Welcome to the club. (I'm still working on my game)

First I would recommend to come up with a name for your company.

Second make an email address for it.

Third sign up for steam with that email

Fourth pay the $100 USD fee for 1 slot.

Fifth make you game

Sixth read all the documentation that steam direct will provide you when you are ready to publish. They will help.

Seventh publicize.

Eighth  keep up with social media posts and emails and questions and ....

Not really sure, but I suspect that it's not an ftp to their servers.

Upload the game files and then they check it out.

All of this is in the documentation if you were to read steams terms of use.

Wait, shouldn't you, you know, make the game before trying to figure out how to sell it or paying $100? I mean sure, you could do an early access thing, but you should still have enough game to be worth showing don't you think?

 

Also, I wouldn't really bother with a company name unless you actually have a company. Or a least a team you can give a team name too. Cause honestly if you are mostly working on the game yourself, having a company name seems a bit silly to me. You don't see book authors with company names that often do you? A pen name or other alias? Sure. A company name? Not so much. A second email is still a good idea anyway though.
