A rabid queue of side scrolling games.

Welcome to a new roaring rock and roll list of games on Greenlight that are looking for votes. Or perhaps not so rock and roll depending upon your opinion. Anyway I’m here to look through the games posted to Greenlight to see which look interesting enough to vote for to get onto Steam’s digital distribution service.

A few things of note. I’m using my opinion on what interests me, so some games will not be included. I try to make sure to give each game a fair chance to impress me. There is also the issue of how quickly the Greenlight process tends to move, games come and go quickly, which will make this post out of date sometime shortly after publication.

Rules:

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