The latest rascally games jumping around for attention.

Hello. As you may have figure out today I’m looking over another ridiculous queue of games looking for votes on Steam Greenlight so that they might be sold on the digital distribution platform Steam. Said games might not actually be ridiculous in any form or they might be  but who knows until the games pop up before me. But I shall have to see as I explore to find the interesting games hording their way onto Greenlight.

This blog post will cover the games of December 18 to 20, 2016 and any game caught in my queue from before then.

I find it important to note that this list does not contain all of the games up for votes, and it also is not trying to be a great grand list of games that you should vote for regardless of your tastes in gaming. I do this because I see it as rather pointless to just include all of the games when you can go look for yourself. It is also impossible to meet every gamers taste  without including all of the games or by including a very small subsection a niche, but that probably still wouldn’t work.  So, I just write about the games that manage to capture my attention and also pass a few set rules I have created.

The rules to narrow down that games:

  • Games must look ready for Steam Greenlight to be included.
  • Games must have a trailer to be included.
  • Games must have an understandable English description so that I can write about and include them.
  • Reposted games that I’ve gone over in a previous blog post will not be included.
