    In order to publish your multiplayer game on Steam, you need to implement your transport with SteamWorks, I recommend you to check out Facepunch transport, which made easy to implement steam connections with C#.

    In fact, matchmaking in L4D works like this: When the user clicks create server, a random empty server is selected from the pool of dedicated Valve servers (officially launched) and the user becomes its administrator
