Celebrating a new voting queue on steam greenlight.

It is time to get slightly into the holiday spirit only in regards to the latest games that have been posted to Steam Greenlight in search of votes. I’m looking through this new queue to see which potential games manage to catch my attention or interest.

This blog post will cover the games of December 12 to 14, 2016 and maybe a game or two from before that got caught in my queue that missed out on the last blog post. I also like to put this out there that this post is not meant to include all of the games up for votes nor is it meant to be a must vote for list of games. I see it as rather pointless to include all of the games and as gamers all have differing tastes when it comes to games it’s rather hard to make some ultimate list.

I do have a few rules to help me figure out which games to include:

  • 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.
  • Games must have a trailer to be included.
  • Games must also have an understandable English description so that I can write about them and include them.
