Can I link my Kongregate and Steam accounts? If so how do I do it?

No.

would be kind of cool if you could though because Steam is hugely popular!

Why would you want and need to link your account to Steam?

I’m going to make wild guessing here: 1) He has friends on Steam and would like to chat or whatever with them while on Kong, 2) He has some money on Steam and would like to purchase some Kreds, or 3) The underpants gnomes told him to.

1) He has friends on Steam and would like to chat or whatever with them while on Kong

Then get his Steam friends on Kong and chat. Alternatively, have two windows open (unless, of course, you have Windows 8, in which case you’re objectively an idiot).

2) He has some money on Steam and would like to purchase some Kreds

Not that there’s ever a good reason to buy Kreds. Only valid reason I can think of off the top of my head is to buy VVVVVV, but you can do that on Steam already.

3) The underpants gnomes told him to

…Oh. That’s a very reasonable explanation. Clearly, we need to link Kong and Steam.

The OP isn’t even requesting that there is a link between Kong and Steam, he’s just asking if there is a way. You are treating him as if he was an asshole that demands a feature that is semi-useless, atdb.

There was! For like a couple days, and then they took it down to fix some stuff, but it will be possible very soon™

I think Kongregate is starting to move in that direction, but it will take a long time to get there. It is something the developer can do themselves, though, so ask them. ^_^

To update, while changing my password I noticed that the link button is visible/re-added again. From Steam’s side, authorizing/logging in, works, but it times out on Kongregate’s side. It’s a bit off to re-add the button without it working, so hopefully this is a minor oversight. I’m glad to have the feature back (it’s removal was unfortunate but extremely understandable) and hopefully it works soon. I’m really excited to see what else Kongregate does to leverage Steam!

To help, in case this is a troubleshooting issue, the url of the popup with the timeout is:
