Beholder leads a wild pack of games on greenlight looking for votes.

It is a new day for video games and so on and so forth or something. Anyway I’m here to look through the games that I find somewhat interesting or are worth a look at on Steam Greenlight. This also means that I’m using my opinion to judge these games so some games will not get mentioned if they fail to impress me.

The games covered today were posted between April 25 to 27, 2016.

A few Rules:

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

 

Enough chat, the Games are calling:
