A post holiday short Greenlight voting queue.

It’s time to look through a new queue of games up for votes on Steam Greenlight. This post covers the games listed from December 24 to 26, 2015 or any game caught in my queue from before then.

Also to note this post is made from my opinion and judgement on the games in Greenlight. That means it’s possible that a game worth mentioning might not be included. I try to give all games a fair chance to impress. And games come and go quickly from Greenlight so this post shall be out of date shortly, and I’m too lazy to go back and keep all the old posts up to day. Sorry.

Rules:

  • Games must have a trailer, an English translation, and look ready for Greenlight.
  • Reposted Greenlight games that I’ve previously talked about will not be included.

 

And now the Video Games:

 

Title: Olorun: Theocracy

Genre: RPG

Art Style: 3D World

Synopsis: A role playing game that challenges you with free swinging combat where you can play with friends against everything or other players.

Opinion: I don’t feel like I have the greatest grasp of what this game wants to be from the Greenlight page.

Trailer:

Title: Tank Brawl

Genre: RPG, Arcade

Art Style: 2D Top Down

Synopsis: A brawling tank game, where you shoot at other tanks through a variety of levels.

Opinion: It isn’t for me.

Trailer:

Title: Si, Yeon -The Flower of Three Kingdoms –

Genre: Visual Novel

Art Style: 2D Hand Drawn

Synopsis: When a girl on a visit to China falls into the Yangtze River and nearly drowns, only to awaken in the year 290 AD. Brought there potentially by a frivilous turtle who is looking for a master of the “He Shi bi” and promises to send her back to her time if she helps out.

Opinion: An odd and twisted sounding story.

Trailer:

Title: Lost Lands: Mahjong

Genre: Puzzle

Art Style: 2D Screens

Synopsis: A Mahjong game with an elven theme to go with it. The Elves are a perscuted race in the Lost Lands, they must keep their swords and minds ready at all times. In order to help them you must solve the 150 Mahjong puzzle levels. This game will be free to play.

Opinion: Seems like it could be a solid game.

Title: Atriage

Genre: Strategy, Puzzle

Art Style: 3D World

Synopsis: A turn based strategy game that gives you four different spaceships to try and master as you battle for supremacy against an opponent in space.

Opinion: It looks colorful, but I don’t feel completely sold on it from the trailer.

Trailer:

Title: Beast Blaster

Genre: Puzzle, Arcade

Art Style: 2D Screens

Synopsis: A simple game where you must place bombs to destroy the menacing beasts without harming the innocent other creatures that happen to be on the same level.

Opinion: This game doesn’t have much to seperate itself from other similar games.

Trailer:

Title: Approaching Blocks

Genre: Educational

Art Style: 3D First Person

Synopsis: The game is simple, you are free falling and every time you hit an object and fail you must figure out what a forigen language statement means. This game is a way to help you learn different languages.

Opinion: It’s a bit of an odd way to teach language but if it works and is fun that’s all that matters.

Trailer:

Title: Neon Drive

Genre: Arcade, Music, Racing

Art Style: 3D Third Person World

Synopsis: Through seven levels you must dodge the objects in front of your car as the custom music for each level plays out.

Opinion: It looks great with a very 80’s Tron neon feel, seven levels is on the short side unless the game is very hard.

Trailer:

Title: Buriedtown

Genre: Survival, Strategy, Horror

Art Style: 2D Top Down

Synopsis: You must survive Buried Town a place infested with zombies as you disembarked from your wrecked canoe. Do your best to survive the hordes, and find a way out of this hell.

Opinion: It is a bit of a different take on the zombie genre of games with some potential.

Trailer:

Title: Evertown

Genre: Strategy

Art Style: 2D Pixel Top Down

Synopsis: You must build your town up to survive the night when the creatures come to attack what you’ve built. The longer you survive the more you can build but more creatures come to take it all away. There are five many resources to keep your town going, food, wood, iron, glory, and gold. You’ll need to make sure you have a balance of all of those to keep going.

Opinion: I’m not the biggest fan of pixel graphics, but the graphics really suit this game.

Trailer:

Title: Hieroglyphika

Genre: Strategy, RPG

Art Style: 2D Pixel World

Synopsis: Set in the Egyptian underworld, you play as a Prussian archaeologist who is lost in a pyramid and must decipher the hieroglyphs if he wants a chance to survive the creatures that have come to life.

Opinion: An odd but interesting setting for a game.

Trailer:

Title: Stars in Shadows

Genre: Strategy

Art Style: 2D World

Synopsis: A space exploration game that challenges you to build an empire while dealing with other leaders and finding lost technology to help you along the way.

Opinion: It has an interesting visual look that separates it from other 4x strategy games.

Trailer:

That will be the end of this queue unfortunately. A combination of the holidays and the queue feature on Greenlight being finicky and not wanting to work made for this short post. Sorry. If you have any comments, questions, suggestions, criticisms or corrections feel free to leave them below or contact me on Twitter @Snipehockey. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog post.
