A fierce list of Greenlight games looking for attention.

A snowed in adventure of finding the interesting games posted to Greenlight, sorry you’ll have to imagine snow if you don’t have any. This post is for February 4 to 6, 2016 plus any games caught in my queue from before then.

Also, since this post is created using my opinion on what impresses me, some games might not get a mention. I try to make sure that every game gets a fair chance. And this post will likely be out of date shortly after its published as games come and go quickly from Greenlight.

Rules:

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