A new queue has come roaring in with Greenlight game wanting someone’s votes,

We are gathered to graze through the garden of Greenlight games… and that just sounds like a creepy way to begin this. Good enough I suppose. I’m here to look through and give a quick idea about the interesting, cool, weird, and “inseret your favorite word here” games. This queue is for games posted between August 25 to 28, 2015. I also have some rules I go by to keep me insane while I go sane.

  • Games must have a trailer to be included.
  • Game must look ready for Greenlight and cannot look like joke submissions to be included.
  • There must be an English translation on the Greenlight page.
  • Games that are reposted to Greenlight and I have talked about in one of my previous blog posts, will not be included.
  • This one isn’t really a rule but worth noting. This post is entirely my opinion on the games worth talking about. Try as I may sometimes, some games that could be worth mention may not be included. I try hard to not do this, but it will occasionally happen.

 

Now that we’re done with the ugly boring stuff, let’s talk about Games:
