The July 21 to 23, 2015 Steam Greenlight voting queue of cool games, maybe.

It’s time for the July 21 to 23, 2015 Steam Greenlight sorting queue of sorts. Welcome back, or just welcome. I have some rules for the games listed.

Rules:

  • A game must have a trailer.
  • A game cannot look like a joke submission.
  • If a game doesn’t look ready for Greenlight, it will not be included.
  • The game’s Greenlight page must have a translation into English. I can’t write about games in a language I don’t read.
  • And for the last rule, if I have previously posted about a game and it has been resubmitted, it will not be included.

 

Right onto the interesting stuff, Games:
