I had uploaded my game on steam a few days back. The game is currently in beta and I've been distributing keys to many users to playtest, stream etc. Many of them have reported an issue that their antivirus programs don't let them run the game even when downloaded and run via the steam launcher. Though some would make an exception and flag the game as safe, others wouldn't dare to play assuming it to be risky.
I have gone through the documentation of corona and understand that this happens to be the case if the game is not digitally signed. But looking up the net I also get to hear people saying steam games don't require a digital certificate as the games are run by steam through their client and certificates are necessary only for distribution outside steam without DRM.
My question is, am I missing something out here? Is there some kind of a permission that I might have turned on that the antivirus is blocking? Or is there any other workaround to this problem that someone could suggest?
As an indie developer I find these certificates quite expensive also not to mention most of them have to be renewed once every year. Any information regarding this would be certainly helpful.
