Question for gamedevs out there that have shipped games through steam direct as individuals. Does the game developer name on steam have to be your own name or can you go wild?

@johannesg I put "Zarfhome Software" on my account, but that is a real legal entity (an LLC) with a tax ID. I don't remember if they required documentation to set it up. Probably they did.

@zarfeblong Yeah, something tells me that I might need to create a real legal entity for my brand (Kollafoss Game Farm). But it would be super handy if I didn't need to.
