It’s a Greenlight queue of games that want your attention.

Welcome to the Sunday edition of looking through games that are looking for votes on Steam Greenlight. This post will be for any games listed between December 18 to 20, 2015 or any games caught in my queue from before those dates.

It should be noted that I create this post through my opinion, thus some games potentially worth mentioning, might not get that mention. I  try to give every game a fair chance to impress. It should also be said that this post will be out of date shortly after its published with how quickly games can come and go from Greenlight. I could fix the posts once they’re out of date, but then I would spend forever fixing old posts and I don’t have time for that time sink.

Rules:

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • Games must have an English translation so I can write about the game.
  • Games should look ready for Greenlight.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve talked about in previous posts will not be included in this post.

 

Now we run to the Games:
