A new queue of games has appeared on Steam Greenlight looking for attention and votes to be allowed onto the digital distribution platform. Well I’m here to give those games the once over to see what is what.
Before I can get to the games however, I have a few things that need to be written so that there are no people wondering what I’m doing with this queue of games.. First up is that this blog post will cover the games of November 12 to 14, 2016. Next this list does not include all the games up for votes nor should it. It is a list based around my impressions and what I find slightly interesting. I will include games that I don’t like because I can see potential in them. The games that do make the list are not to be considered the must vote for games and the only ones worth voting for. I understand that not everyone has the same taste when it comes to games, and I will probably put some games in my list that you don’t like.
There are also some rules to help me narrow down the list of games:
- Games must look ready for Greenlight.
- Reposted games that I have gone over in a previous blog post will not be included.
- Any game that does not have a trailer will not be included.
- Games must have an understandable English description so that I can write about and include them.
Here are the Games:
