The war drums of steam greenlight keep beating to get more games and votes.

And here we are to try and blog about the games that are posted to Steam Greenlight in the hopes of being voted onto digital distribution platform. That is if unlike the last time I tried to blog about the games of Greenlight it is working and not broken. Fingers crossed that it works.  This post covers the games of April 1 to 3, 2016 but probably includes several from before then.

It is worth noting that some games might not be included because they didn’t impress me. I try to give every game a fair chance, but I also recommend readers check out Greenlight for themselves as your opinion will differ from mine.

Rules:

  • There must be a trailer.
  • There must be an English translation so I can write about the game.
  • The games should look ready for the voting process.
  • Games that have been reposted and that I’ve previously mentioned in blog posts will not be included.
