Personal Finance Software on Steam? What Now?

I was browsing the Steam sales today and came across a program called You Need a Budget 4. At first, I thought that it was some kind of indy game, you know, one of those hipster meme humor games.

To my surprise, this is not a joke at all. This is a legit budget program. I guess it will help people, especially those that like to squander their money on every single game that Steam puts on sale, but it was quite a shock to see a non-game application available for purchase. I wonder if this is a marketing ploy to get more people to install Steam (which is required in order to use the program), then suck them in to buy more games. if this is the case, then they certainly will need to get on a budget!
