The slightly crazy or insane madcap games wandering greenlight.

With a resounding crash we continue to circle round and round the greenlight games looking for those worth voting for. This post will cover the games put up between April 10 to 12, 2016.  I judge the game as best as I can on what I find interesting and try to give every game a fair chance to leave an impression. That said some games will get left out.

Rules:

  • Games need to look ready for Greenlight.
  • Games must have a trailer.
  • There must be an English translation for me to write about the game.
  • Reposted games that I’ve previously blogged about here will not be included.

 

Look it’s the Video Games:
