Wrecking a new Greenlight queue of games.

It is Thursday an ordinary day and the games of Greenlight are calling for votes. So, I shall look through to see what games are interesting and so on. This list is for games posted January 5 to 7, 2016. There are a few things to go over and then I’ll get to the games.

This post is of course made from my opinion. As such its up to the games to impress me to be included. I try to give every game a fair chance to do so. Also this post may be shortly out of date after being published. Games can come and go quickly from the voting process on Greenlight.

Rules:

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

 

Now to those pesky Video Games:

 

Title: Chicku

Genre: Platformer

Art Style: 3D Side Scroller

Synopsis: A local co-op game where you must escape from the farm as a chicken. It isn’t easy however as there will be lots of traps and things that will likely kill you with one wrong move.
