Blistering through a greenlight queue of games looking to be voted on.

The voting process on Steam Greenlight continues to keep getting new games, so I shall continue to try and wrestle with what are the most  interesting ones. And of course that means I’ll be judging these games based upon my opinion. I try to give each and every game a chance to cast a somewhat favorable light on themselves.  Also this post shouldn’t take long to be out of date as the voting process on Greenlight tends to move quickly. Though by all means please look through the post.

This blog post will cover the games listed between March 20 to 22, 2016.

Rules:

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