I bought cook serve delicious a while ago from their website before I got steam. Now that I have steam installed, I'd like to have cook serve delicious in my library; however obviously I don't want to have to buy the game again. I have the original installer .exe file that I downloaded when I bought the game. Is there any way I can use this to install my game into my steam library so it can receive the full benefits that steam provides (automatic updates etc.)?

    Since this is an indie team, it might be possible to just email them and explain the situation (along with proof of purchase), and ask for a Steam key. Jul 13, 2015 at 17:39

Unfortunately not. Although you can add a shortcut to the game on Steam and the Steam overlay will even show up, that still doesn't do much and it's still a non-Steam game.

However, chances are that you may have received a redeemable Steam code with your order, or that you may have one accessible somewhere with your purchase.

  • You can still use a subset of steam functionality like the steam overlay and streaming/broadcasting functionality with non-steam games.

  • Do note that things like achievements will not be counted when playing a Steam game installed from other means.
