I forget to title this post for a Steam Greenlight queue. Whoops!

With the holiday season now in full swing the list of Steam Greenlight games wanting votes goes on.  I’ll as quickly as I can go over what rules and ideas make up this post so that you know what’s happening. That or just skip to the games.

This list is for the games posted between November 27 to 29, 2015. The post is created from my opinion which means that some games might not be included. I try to give every game a fair chance, but I have to leave somewhat impressed by the games.

It should be noted that games come and go from the Greenlight voting process quickly. This is because of getting voted through or removed by the creators. Thus this post will be shortly out of date from the time its published.

Rules:

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • Games need to have an English translation for me to right about the game.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve previously talked about will not be included.
  • Games need to look ready for Greenlight.

 

And now maybe the Games:
