Installing Steam on Devuan Ascii

What's the simplest way to do it?
I've made some searches on google and even found that there's a Devuan group on steam but all tutorials I found involves adding a debian repo into sources.list. Anyway, how can I do it?
Thanks in advance.

I think it's just a matter of setting up multiarch because steam seems to be 32bit only:

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
apt-get install steam

You obviously need to have non-free sources enabled as steam isn't exactly open source. In case you are wondering where your steam client ends up: It's at /usr/games/steam. Run this from GUI and it'll install it's files to your home directory. You need to you have OpenGL support available for it to work though (which i guess you have if you plan to use steam).
