A hurricane of video games want to be voted for on steam greenlight.

Video games are wandering the wastelands of Steam Greenlight desperate for the sustenance that they need known as votes to continue on to greater things, or maybe I’m taking this whole analogy thing just a bit too far…

Anyway the whole point these blog posts is to go over the games that are looking to get onto the digital distrubtion service Steam through the voting process on Steam Greenlight. This post will cover September 25 to 27, 2016 and any games caught in my queue from before then.

A few other things, these posts aren’t meant to be the only games you should votes for on Greenlight. I get that everyone has differing opinions when it comes to games. I also like to note that this listing is created from my opinion so not all games will be included, though I do try and give all games a fair chance to impress me. I recommend any reader to check out the games for yourselves.

I have a set of Rules to help me narrow down the games.

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