Default Steam Pressure for Steam

Function and Beauty combined. Still feels like Steam.

Pressure is a blend of beauty and function. Every part of Steam has been carefully considered and reworked to create the most fluid and wonderful experience possible. I have spent the past year and a half carving away at Steam to ensure that everything is where it should be, that every action is as logical and as expected as it can be. Gone are the dull and outdated color choices. Gone is the oddly spaced and positioned elements. Here is Steam as it should be... and yet it still feels like Steam.

Created by Dirt Diglett

Pressure has been a labour of love created with the frustrated tears of Dirt Diglett (Previously known as TDD). When the Steam 2010 UI Update was released I took it upon myself to immediately push the theme system to its breaking point creating the first and most popular for its time skin, "Enhanced Steam by TDD". Four years later I am doing it again with Pressure.
