Quirky games make up this voting queue of Greenlight games.

It’s time for a new Steam Greenlight voting queue of games. These are games that have been posted from August  14 to 16, 2015. There are also some rules to go over for why I don’t include some of the games that get posted.

  • A game has to have a trailer.
  • The games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • A game should not look like a joke submission.
  • There must be an English translation. I can’t write about games in languages I don’t know.
  • If a game has been reposted to Greenlight and I have talked about them in previous post of mine, they will not be included.
  • Lastly, all of this is largely based on my opinion, I try not to dis-include games, but sometimes I do have to make judgement calls on how I feel.

 

Right, with all of that done. It’s now all about the Games:
