A new snatch and grab queue of greenlight games wanting votes.

A new day, and a bit of the same old same old. Of course that means a new queue of games looking for votes on Steam Greenlight.

And now we rush through the small details to get to the games. This list is for games posted between October 28 to 30, 2015. It is also made from entirely my opinion, which means game worth mentioning might not get mentioned. I try not to let this happen. This post is also meant as a quick look at the games. I don’t go into great depth about them. Readers should also be aware that games can be voted through or removed from Greenlight at any time. So this list might be a touch out of date at the time you decide to read it.

A few rules:

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

 

Now quick to the Games:
