A little bit of a wild and crazy ride of Greenlight games up for votes.

Welcome to a new bumbling and maybe humbling queue of games looking for votes on Steam Greenlight for December 15 to 17, 2015. I’m your host and completely unimportant, so let’s get down to what makes these posts.

This blog is made from my opinion as I look over the games, as such some games that don’t make enough of an impression on me but might be worth mentioning won’t get that mention. I try my best to give ever game a fair chance. Also this post will be out of date shortly after publishing since games come and go from the Greenliight process.

Rules:

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • Games should look ready for Greenlight.
  • Games should have an English translation so I can write about them.
  • Games reposted to Greenlight that I’ve previously talked about, will not be included.

 

And now what you came for in the first place, the Games:

 

Title: Medusa’s Labyrinth

Genre: Horror

Art Style: 3D First Person

Synopsis: Set in ancient Greece an outbreak of some kind has happened and the priests of of Poseidon have locked themselves inside of the temple. The Hierophant has told them not to go out even though things have quieted down, they quickly learn that things are not how they used to be as loud screams pierce the walls of the temple and the gods refuse to answer their prayers. This game will be free to play.

Opinion: The story seems to have a lot of potential.
