A couple of games here, a couple there, all of them want your votes.

It’s time for me to run around and pretend like I know what I’m doing. Yup time to wander through a new queue of games on Steam Greenlight. As comes standard with these posts, I’ll run through what rules I use to create this blog post and then get to the games. Sound fair? No? Pity.

This list is for games posted to Greenlight between December 6 to 8, 2015 or any games caught in my queue from before then. The listing is created purely from my opinion which might leave some games out if they don’t impress. I try hard to give every game a fair chance. Games can also come and go quickly from Greenlight for various reasons and well that will leave this post out of date shortly.

Rules-

  • Reposted Greenlight games that I have previously talked about in a post will not be included.
  • Games must have an English translation for me to write about them.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • Games must have a trailer.

 

And now, said Games:
