How is that possible?

I playing an indie gem which is buried under the daily steam trash and was released on Friday:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/504690/Woven/

I mean, a game once lost that "steam is learning" or "profile limited" status still needs to get more traffic and purchase for the cards.

Yet cards suddenly popped for that game to my inventory a few minutes ago.

No, the game not close to losing the status, with its 1 steam purchase review.

I am curious, anyone can answer this?

EDIT:
I think Philblank answered it:
"Their AppId seems to be a really low number, chances are high they registered their game before card limitations were instated. Even if they didn't release until now, their account could have been grandfathered in"

Thanks, this was a very unique exception that a game can have cards even with steam is learning about tag that way, so I was really curious how it could have happened:-)

as i get if steam is learning about this game thing there needs to be about 200-300 reviews to let game do cards, strange.

If you hover over the question mark after "Steam is learning about the game", it doesn't mention cards being restricted for this game. I think there are different "learning" messages because I feel like I've previously read some mentioning that cards for that game were not being given out.

It clearly says Steam Trading Cards. Usually if cards are not yet available, (but a possibility in the future) it will say "Profile features limited". So just take your cards and run with them :)
Maybe someone messed up when setting this game up on steam. I have no idea.

It clearly says Steam Trading Cards.

Those tags are set by the devs and can be applied regardless of whether the game has cards or not.

So we could report a game if it advertises cards but does not have them? I assume Steam does not like false advertising. Not come across any of those myself but I possibly would not notice. I try to play the game first and ponder the cards afterwards.

Valve do say the tags should be used based on actual content and not planned content so it would be a valid report.

Be honest: This thread is secretly a ruse to get people to wishlist or buy this game, right?

Nope, it is a question because I never saw any game with Steam is learning about or profile limited tag a card, so it is a very unique experience.

I don't have any connection with the developers, publishers, other than that playing their game.

And I thought that "Steam is learning about this game" is the same as "Profile Features Limited", guess not...

Their AppId seems to be a really low number, chances are high they registered their game before card limitations were instated. Even if they didn't release until now, their account could have been grandfathered in

Kinda looks like another dev's first gamemaker fiddling's try, but it also kinda looks cute so wishlisted it. :p

The f2p adventure game looks nice too.

How a game exit "profile limited" status? The steam FAQ for the developers is not very clear.

I guess they need to sell a certain number of copies directly through the Steam Store. This measure was implemented to avoid asset flip games and developers adding this kind of games to create huge farms of bots (farming cards).

They won't tell for fear that people will "game the algorithm"
Best ideas so far are a mix of sales, total gameplay time of owners, and community hub interaction (screenshots, forum posts, etc.)
You have to reach the threshold before the "Steam is learning about this game" period is over, since I don't think "profile limited" status can be reversed
