Whipping up a frenzied voting queue of video games for steam greenlight.

A pretty queue of video games have come out from hiding looking for votes and acceptance to the digital distribution service Steam. I’m here to sort through them to see potentially what interesting games are hidden and waiting to come out.

Now, there are a few short matters to get through before I talk about the games. First and foremost, this blog post will cover the games of September 19 to 21, 2016 and any games caught in my queue from before then. Next, this list is created from my opinion and isn’t meant to be some great collection of greenlight games that you most definitely have to vote for. I understand that peoples tastes in gaming can differ quite a lot which is why this isn’t a definitive post. Also I try my best to give all games a chance to impress me, but I will not be including all games up for votes on Greenlight.

 

Rules:

  • Game must have a trailer to be included.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I have gone over in previous posts will not be included.
  • Games must have an understandable English translation for me to write about them and to include them.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight to be included.
