Rambunctious games rally around greenlight for votes.

Games have gathered around to beg for votes and attention, which I plan to fully give them if they can muster past certain rules.

As always a few things to point out for this queue of games. This little post will cover the games of August 29 to 31, 2016. I also want to make sure that it is known that I don’t intend this blog to be the end all be all of what to vote for on Steam Greenlight. I understand that everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games, and that this list is based mostly on my opinion. That said, not all games will be included that are looking for votes.

Rules:

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