Rambling and rumbling through a new voting queue on steam greenlight.

The lumbering behemoth known as E3 2016 has groaned and moaned its way to a halt coming to a conclusion on Thursday. That leaves us to once again to find out about the games that are on Steam Greenlight looking for attention and votes. Somethings just don’t change.

This post will cover the games from June 12 to 17, 2016. A long bit of time to cover, but with E3 clogging up the airways it made sense to take a small break. Anyway, this post is made using my opinion on what looks interesting and fun. Some games may fail to make the cut for failing to make an impression on me.

Oh, also this list is just for fun, and just to show the potentially interesting games lurking in the shadows of Greenlight. It isn’t meant to be the end all be all of the voting process.

Rules:

  • Any game that fails to have a trailer will not be included in this post.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight to be included.
  • Games that get reposted to Greenlight that I’ve gone over in previous blog posts will not be included.
  • Finally, each game must have an understandable English translation so I can write about the game.

 

Now enough bogged down details, we’re here for the Games:
