A quirky queue of games for votes!

The dark caverns of Greenlight games is crawling toward the daylight, screeching for attention, and no matter what you do they keep coming with more and more behind them. Throwing a torch at them in hopes of burning the whole thing down doesn’t work very well. The only way through it all is by actually looking and voting on the games. Thus that is what we shall do for the games of July 24 to 26, 2016.

I also like to make note of the fact that this list is made using my opinion. I don’t claim it to be the greatest list of Greenlight games that you most definitely positively have to vote for. Everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games so I encourage anyone to take a look for themselves to see what Greenlight has to offer. This list is just a look at the games that managed to catch my interest in some form.

The rules for inclusion to this post:

  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve previously gone over will not be included.
  • Games need to look ready for Greenlight.
  • Games need a trailer.
  • Games need to have an understandable English translation.
