A new challenger appears! And they want votes on steam greenlight.

Whee the games of Steam Greenlight have come forward to be inspected and voted on, as per usual and that’s exactly what I shall do.

There are however, a few things to get to before looking over the games. First, this post is for November 3 to 5, 2016. This post does not include all the games up for votes nor is it trying to be an ultimate must vote for list of games.  I don’t want it to be and I don’t see a reason to include all the games.

I have a few rules to help me out:

  • If a game doesn’t have a trailer, it will not 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 in this one.
  • Finally, games must have an understandable English description on their Greenlight page so that I can write about them.

 

Now we can get to the all important Games:
