Zip zapping through a voting queue.

Hello and welcome to this blog post where I go over the games of Greenlight looking for votes. This post is for the games posted between January 11 to 13, 2015 or any game caught in my queue from before then.

I try and keep my blog post simple, but there are a few things I like to say before talking about the games themselves.  This post is made entirely from my opinion and that mean’s some games might not be included because they didn’t impress me. I try to give every game a fair chance. I also have to throw the fair warning out there that shortly after I post this blog post it will be out of date. Games come and go quickly from Greenlight for a variety of reasons.

Rules:

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

 

Now we can get to the Games:

Title: SssHhh

Genre: Horror

Art Style: 3D First Person World

Synopsis: An episodic game where there is no backstory, all you get is a quote at the beginning and that becomes the idea for the game.

Opinion: A unique twist on the horror genre to have no backstory to go off of. But that also means that it has to live off of its tension and very few games can keep up high levels of tension.

Title: Omen of Sorrow

Genre: Fighting

Art Style: 3D Arena

Synopsis: A 3D fighting game with horror as its back drop. Fight as dark creatures and against other dark and demonic creatures.

Synopsis: Your world is coming to a crashing end, and you a young Moon Being are not there, no you are off on a quest to find a lost deity, you must explore the world and use chemistry to find the deity and help save your world.

Art Style: 2D Game Board
