A bustling little Greenlight voting queue for you.

It it time to rummage through the games put up for votes on Steam Greenlight. This post is just a quick run down of games that caught my attention. It is always a good idea to check out all of the games put up and see what you like for yourself.

A few other things to keep in mind:

This list is for the games posted between September 13 to 15, 2015.

This list is my opinion, which means some games that might deserve chance might not make my list. I try to not let this happen much.

Rules:

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • They must have an English translation.
  • They must look ready for Greenlight and not look like a joke submission.
  • Games reposted to Greenlight that I have talked about previously, will not be included.
