The long list of games that have lined up on Greenlight for your votes.

And we are back with a new queue of games that want to be looked at, loved, and a bunch of other things, but mostly they just want your votes. It is a new Greenlight list of games for August 20 to 22, 2015. As is the case with all of these posts, there are rules for games to be included, mostly for my own sake and sanity.

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • The games cannot look like joke submissions and must look ready for Greenlight.
  • There must be an English translation on the Greenlight page.
  • Games that have been reposted to Greenlight and mention in previous posts of mine, will not be included.
  • And the last one, which is not really a rule: this list is my opinion, and try as I may, there are sometimes where games that deserve a chance but may not get one. This can happen for various reasons, but it comes down to is in my opinion the game didn’t reach the standard good enough for Greenlight.

Enough of the ridiculous and bring on the Games:
