Steam users looking for a tint on the usual Steam default skin could install the PixelVision skin. Not only does this skin present Steam in a bold, clean way but also uses a serious, dark black to add a hardcore gamer feel. The buttons seem to become more striking, which is great when it comes to aesthetics. Also, the similarity to the original Steam client means that Steam users will still feel at home using the new skin. Using a mixture of a deep black and a dark blue works brilliantly, making key information, boxes and buttons stand apart from the dark background and imaging. Not only that, but the vivid in game popups and notifications seem to fit with any game; perfect when it comes to Steam skins. This skin is great for users who want to try out a new skin similar to the default skin.

  1. Thanks for this skin ! It’s just nicely done, however there is a compatibility matter with upper bouttons next to Shop, Library, community …
    I’m on 2 screens which are, one 1080P Acer XB270H and the other 2K Acer Predator.
    I hope you can fix it ’cause your skin set is amazing !

  2. Great skin. I was gonna join the steam group but instead thought I would comment on here. Keep up the good work and hope to see more black’sh dark skins that look clean and stealthy.

  3. I am playing csgo 1024×768 and I cant see the time on shift+tab pls fix and you could add the webbrowser tab to the shift-tab menu^^

  4. Hey there, great skin, even tho some may do not like the new overlay, I very welcome it!

    But noticed that there’s a small blue line going half across the profile picture frame when you have
    Steam open ( You know.. where you can switch in between Store, Library, Community and so on )
