A circus of games somersault about for attention.

The games on Steam Greenlight are holding a circus doing flips, tricks, and somersults so that you’ll pay attention and vote for them. Well not really, they sit there playing trailers, having nice screenshots, and are described in the written form usually fairly well. It is just more fun to pretend the whole thing is a bit of a circus.

Onto the more serious of stuff before I can get to the games. This post will cover those games posted from October 7 to 9, 2016 and maybe a few games from before than that I missed out on. This list is also not meant to be taken as the only games you should vote for on Steam Greenlight. I know that everyone has a bit different tastes when it comes to gaming so there is no way that these blog posts will ever be the end all be all of Greenlight, and I don’t want them to be. Also, this list is created from my opinion, I try to give all games a fair chance, but there is no way I’m including every game up there.

A few rules to narrow down the field:

  • Games that don’t have a trailer will not be included.
  • Games must have an understandable English translation so that I can write about them and include them.
  • Reposted games to Greenlight that I’ve gone over in a previous blog post will not be included.
  • Finally, games need to look ready overall for the Greenlight voting process to be included.

 

Now the circus of Games can roll on:
