Running away with the lost video games up for votes on steam greenlight.

It’s look at the games on Steam Greenlight looking for votes day!  Go video games. Anyway a few things to talk about before getting to the games themselves.

This post covers September 1 to 3, 2016, welcome to September by the way. I use my opinion to judge these games and what might be interesting. I try to give all games a fair chance, but I’m not including all games that are up for votes. I also like to note that this post isn’t meant to be the end all be all of the games you should vote for on Steam Greenlight. I know that everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games so check out the games for yourselves to see what is offered. There are also some rules I’ve created to help me judge these games.

Rules:

  • There must be an understandable English translation for me to write about the games.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight.
  • Each game must have a trailer to be included.
  • And, reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve gone over in previous blog posts will not be included in this one.
