Rampaging with a new voting queue of greenlight games before e3 storms through.

With E3 rumbling in the not so distant future, we continue to look through the small games that find their home on Steam Greenlight or at least ones that are looking for a home with your votes. Surprise surprise. This post will cover the games posted between June 5 to 8, 2016. It is made up entirely from my opinion which means some games will get left by the wayside for failing to impress me. I try to give all games a fair chance.

Also I’d like to make the point that this list is in no way definitive being subject to my opinion. It’s rather a list of games that I thought looked neat and are worth sharing/talking about.

Rules:

  • If there is no trailer, I will not post the game.
  • If a game does not look ready for Greenlight, I will also not post it to this blog post.
  • Games that I’ve gone over in previous blog posts that have been reposted to Greenlight, will not be included.
  • Games must have an understandable English translation for me to talk about them.

 

Now to the fun and games, knowing simply as the Games:
