Chaos and voting queues for video games.

What better way to celebrate the United State election day that to vote for something far more interesting… video games! Okay so it probably isn’t that much better, but there is a lot more choice and said choices don’t seem as icky as those running for President. Bad jokes out of the way, lets get to actually information relevant to this blog post.

First thing that needs to be said, this post covers the games of November 5 to 7, 2016.

I also like to make not of the fact that this list of games does not include all of the games, nor is it meant to be a list of the only games you should vote for. My reasoning is that everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games and it would be impossible to please everyone without including all of the games. I don’t see it as a feasible thing to do in listing all the games, and if I did there’s no point as you can go to Steam Greenlight and see the same thing for yourself.  What games are here, are put down because they managed to impress me in some form and follow a set of rules I’ve established.

Said Rules:

  • If a game does not have a trailer, it will not be included.
  • Games must look like they are ready to be shown on Steam Greenlight.
  • Games must have an understandable English description on their page so that I can write about them.
  • Lastly, reposted games that I have gone over in a previous blog post, will not be included.

 

Now it is time for those nasty little buggers known as votes to make themselves known to the Games:

 

Title: Swol Quest

Genre: Adventure

Art Style: 2D Pixel Side Scroller

Synopsis: This is a quest to get pumped, to get swol as they say and all to stop people from pushing you over. It’s a game about dealing with body image and masculinity.

Game Play Style: It is inspired by the likes of River City Ransom and Dragon, so action brawling.

Thoughts/Opinion of the Game: It looks like a pretty quirky game that I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.

Finally one day the demons have gotten past the gate and brought the Apocalypse to humanity. Now you must battle to save the humans against the four horsemen of the apocalypse.
