A tough battle hardened queue of games looking for votes on greenlight.

It’s look at the games on Steam Greenlight day and see which ones catch my interest and to potentially vote for. This little post will cover the games of August 23 to 25, 2016.

Worthy things of note, this list is created from my opinion which means not all games will be included. In fact a lot of games are not included in this list. I suggest any readers to check out Greenlight for themselves as everyone has differing tastes as to what makes a good game. That and this list is no means the end all be all of the games to vote for on Greenlight.

A few rules to help shape my list.

  • Games must have an understandable English translation for me to be able to write about them.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve gone over in a previous post, will not be included in this one.
  • Finally, all games must have a trailer to be included.

  1. Hello 🙂

    I am Gerard, the main developer of Tales of a Spymaster. I just wanted to say thanks for the mention here. The game got Greenlit a few days ago anyways. It is my first ever game and still a great deal to do, but glad you liked what you seen and hopefully you will like the direction the game goes in future.

    Gerard.
