Steam Greenlight presses on with a new voting queue.

It’s time for a new post! Shocking! That said, let’s go through another queue of Greenlight games that want votes to get on Valve’s digital distribution service Steam.

A few thorny things to go through and then to the stuff you actually wanted to read.

This post is for games listed between October 25 to 27, 2015. It also is made entirely from my opinion and as such some games worth mentioning might not get mentioned. I try not to let this happen. Also, this is post is only meant to be a quick look at the games, and is no way an indepth look at the games.

This post will probably be out of date by the time its been posted as games can be quickly removed or pass through Greenlight.

A few rules:

  • Games must have an English translation.
  • Games should look ready for Greenlight and not look like a joke submission.
  • Games should have a trailer.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve previosly talked about will not be included.

Now the good/important/stuff:
