    ppears in client code
    Steam owners Valve may be looking to allow game sharing in a future update, as suggested by a few lines of tell-tale code found in the store’s client code.




    Initially discovered by NeoGAF, the client code now contains the following lines:

    “SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicense_Title” “Shared game library”
    “SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicenseLocked_OwnerText” “Just so you know, your games are currently in use by %borrower%. Playing now will send %borrower% a notice that it’s time to quit.”
    “SteamUI_JoinDialog_SharedLicenseLocked_BorrowerText” “This shared game is currently unavailable. Please try again later or buy this game for your own library
