Dominating steam greenlight with votes.

The games are rummaging about on Steam Greenlight looking for votes to be allowed on the digital distribution service Steam. I’m here to run through the games and see which of them look cool\interesting\whatever you want to call it.

Now there’s a few things to cover before I can get to the games themselves. The big thing is that this list covers the games from September 22 to 24, 2016 and potentially a few games caught in my queue from before then. Also I don’t want these blog posts to turn into the end all be all of which games to  vote for on Steam Greenlight. I get that everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games.Adding onto that this list is created solely from my opinion, so you really should check out Greenlight for yourself. I do try to give all games a fair chance to impress me so that I can include them, but i’m not willing to include and go over all of the games up for votes.

I have a few rules to help me narrow things down.

  • Games must have a trailer to be included in these posts.
  • Games must look ready for Greenlight to be included.
  • Each game must have an understandable English translation so that I can write about them.
  • Lastly, reposted games looking for votes on Greenlight that I have gone over in a previous blog post, will not be included.
