Pro Tips

It’s important to let people know:

  • What game is this for?
  • What is the link to the Steam asset?
  • What does this asset include?

Tag your game content correctly

Tagging content is important because it helps centralize it on Sketchfab. It also helps us find and promote you on Sketchfab and with gaming publications.

A good rule of thumb is to add a tag for the part of Steam you’re showing your work on and add a tag for full game name.
