I'm seeing the posts where Steam is said not to be working, but on a clean Mojava -to- Catalina install I was able to install Steam and it downloaded the client successfully. It starts up and shows me my library, is there something specific that isn't working? I haven't tried controller support, and I believe they install a driver for that to work.

Steam was originally a 32-bit app. A while ago they released a 64-bit version but my experience was that it didn't automatically upgrade, I had to go to their website and manually install to get the 64-bit version. I have not played any games yet but the Steam app (64-bit version) appears to be running fine on the 10.15 beta.
