A new riptide of games rolls around for votes on steam greenlight.

Welcome to silly land or whatever you’d like to refer to it as. These blog posts are where I look over the games put on to Steam Greenlight by developers hoping that gamers will vote on their games so that they can be published on Steam so those same gamers can buy it. I look through the games and talk about those that potentially interest me.

Please note that I don’t make these posts to say that these games are the ones you simply must vote for. No, I get that everyone has differing tastes when it comes to what they like. I talk about the potentially interesting games you might want to check out. This list comes from my opinion, I do not include all games looking for votes, I do give all games a fair chance to leave an impression.

I have a few rules to help me narrow down the games:

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

Also worth noting this little post will cover the games of October 16 to 18, 2016.

 

Now lets get to those blasted games already:
