You mean such that you can purchase them from Steam?  I think they'd have to build in the Steam API into them.

 

If you just want to get the old games, GOG has them.  But, I suspect that wasn't your question.

You can't use them to get a Steam license for the games. If you want them downloadable from Steam, you'll have to buy them again.

But the Steam client allows you to add a non-Steam game to your game list. This won't make it a Steam game, you'll just be able to start it from there and (in some but not all games) will allow you to access the Steam overlay while playing. I know that you can't do that with TLJ (not even with the Steam version) but I don't know about DF.

Thanks for the answers.
I had the originals on CD, but... i think in 2-3 years the dvd format will be unplayable on the computers... that's the reasson for asking about a "cloud" format.

Maybe someday will be a new "boudle" with TLJ and DF on steam or other system.

 

I'll be waiting :evilwonk:
