It’s a new blog post about the games looking for votes on Steam Greenlight! This time it is for the games of October 28 to 30, 2016.
A few notes and I’ll get to the games. First, this list does not include all of the games up for votes. Second, isn’t meant to be a list of the must vote for games on Greenlight. Everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games and it would defeat the purpose of making such a list if I include all of them. I will give all games a fair chance to leave an impression on me though.
A few rules that help me out:
- If a game does not have a trailer, it will not be included.
- A game must look ready for Greenlight for me to include it.
- Reposted games that I have gone over in a previous blog post will not be included.
- Games must have understandable English in their descriptions of the game to be included.
Here are the latest Games:

Thoughts/Opinion of the Game: It will draw comparisons to Rocket League as it looks like a low resolution version without the rocket jumps blasting you across the arena. That isn’t entirely a bad thing, but it does need something to really separate itself from that game.

When the coup fails it looks like you’ve taken your final breath on the planet but strangely you find yourself thrown back to the year 1633.
