Crawling through a cruel list of games up for votes on Greenlight.

Welcome back to another cruise through the games on Greenlight that want to be voted through onto Steam. This post covers the games of February 1 to 3, 2016 and any games caught in my queue from before then.

A few things to note and rules. Some games won’t make this post because they don’t impress me and this post is made from my opinion. I try hard to make sure I give games a fair chance to impress me. And because Greenlight voting process can move quickly this post will probably be out of date shortly.

Rules:

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

 

Now we get to those pesky things called Games:
