Yup, it is a new year and video games keep going onto Steam Greenlight with the hopes of being voted through to be allowed to be sold on the digital distribution platform. I’m here to see which ones look interesting and manage to catch my attention in some form then to write about them here so you kind readers can take a peak at the games.
Now this list does cover the last few days of 2016 as well as the fresh new day of 2017, mean it covers from December 30, 2016 to January 1, 2017. It is also worth noting that I do not include all of the games looking for votes and I also am not making a list of games that you simply have to vote for. I say that because everyone has differing tastes when it comes to video games to a must vote for list is impossible. That and inluding all of the games rather defeats the purpose of writing a blog post about interesting games.
I have created a set of rules to help me narrow down the list:
- Games must look ready for Greenlight to be included.
- Games also must have an understandable English description to allow me to write about and include them.
- Reposted games that I have gone over in a previous blog post will not be included.
- Finally, all games must have a trailer to be included.
Here is the lastest parade queue of Games:
