Awesome, totally want this. Been waiting for a skin based on the Zune look (while keeping the Steam look as well)!

Just ditch the Tribal decoration before release ;)

Thanks everyone. I may release it after all, but not until it's perfect!

The tribal decoration is from the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. If you haven't used it already, it comes with a bunch of different decals for the Start Screen. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to package them with the theme, but I just decided on this one to match the Windows 8 theme I'm using for personal use.

If I do find that I'm allowed to include them there will be several options, one of which would remove them altogether.

Frankly I prefer it with the Windows 8 "Tribal" pattern, otherwise it'd be in danger of looking a tad bland.

Looks awesome! I'm using that the second it's released! (Y)

IMO what about having the Steam logo as a background? Something like this:

Thanks!

I feel the same way, which is why I'd like to include the default patterns if possible. I'll always leave the option open to leave it blank just in case some people prefer it.

Thanks a lot! That would definitely look good in the bottom right corner of the client.

Yeah! The Steam logo makes perfect sense, you also might want to stick to the gray color scheme instead of the black one (now that I think about it).

I think so too. What are you referring to when you mention the black? The Zune Software?

I meant the black colour-scheme that you used in your Photoshop concept. Black looks good, but it just wouldn't be "steam" anymore.

I wouldn't say it's black, as it's actually only a couple shades darker than the Steam logo image Auroka posted. The Steam client is actually darker than this in most areas.
