Carving through a new queue of games on Greenlight.

Yes, yes, it is time for me to once more write about the games standing at attention and trying to only show off their best sides so that they may be voted through. All of these games are put onto Steam Greenlight so that they might someday have a chance to be sold on the digital distribution platform.  I’m here to see what games have been posted seem interesting and might be worth a look at.

Now before I can get to the games, there’s a few things I need to say. To start off this blog post will cover the games of December 9 to 11, 2016. There may also be a few games from before December 9th, 2016 that got caught in my queue or I simply missed out on.

The next terribly important thing is that this list does not include all of the games up for votes nor is it meant to be a great list of games that you definitely have to vote for. Everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games making an ultimate list impossible and it’s also rather pointless to make a blog post about all of the games up for votes.

I do use a set of rules to help guide me:

  • If a game does not 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.
  • And games must have an understandable English description so that I can write about and include those games.

 

Now to the part you probably skipped to, the Games:
