It’s time for votes and games worth looking at. It’s a new Steam Greenlight voting queue.

Welcome to a new Greenlight voting queue of odd, quirky, fun, interesting, silly, something, something games. Whee. This list is for games posted between October 7 to 9, 2015. This list is also a quick look through the games and is not some definitive list. It’s a good idea to check out Steam Greenlight to see what you may like because my taste in games probably differs.

This list is also made from my opinion on what I like, which as a result may make me not include games. I try not to let this happen too much and judge each game fairly.

Rules:

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • Games that have been reposted to Greenlight and that I’ve talked about in previous post will not be included.
  • Games should look ready for Greenlight and should not look like joke submissions.
  • There should be an English translation for the game to be included.

 

Now the important stuff Games:
