A Comprehensive Guide to Why Can't I Download Game Pigeon?

The original Game Pigeon client was a plugin for a popular open-source media player called VLC . It lacked many features that would be considered standard today, such as cloud storage and leaderboards. However, it did provide achievements and chat, which were its main features.

Game Pigeon eventually added online play into their client in Steamworks, and they lost most of their playerbase in the process. Many of these players did not want to switch over to Steam just for Game Pigeon, due to the nature of open-source media players such as VLC and KMPlayer.

Game Pigeon eventually fell into another hiatus after its sister company which handled accounts was shutdown by Valve.

Game Pigeon today is completely different from what it was when the original client came out.

Game Pigeon no longer has online play, and instead focuses on providing a better third-party service than Steam. It also includes many features that allow players to customize their experience in their games such as themes and notifications.
