Yes, yes. It is time to look over the latest and interesting games that have occupied Steam Greenlight with the hopes of being voted through to be allowed to be put on sale on the digital distribution platform. Also welcome to my readers to my simple yet slightly silly blog. This blog post will cover the games of January 8 to 10, 2017 and perhaps a few straggling games from before January 8th.
Now before I get to the games I always have a bunch of thing to say. Namely that this isn’t a grand list of must vote for games as all gamers having differing tastes when it comes to games. It also does not include all of the games up for votes as it would be rather silly as you can just go to Greenlight and go through pretty much the same queue. This list is in fact just a collection of games that have managed to catch my interest and or attention in some form or another and I thought people should at least take a look at them.
I also have a set of rules to help me narrow down the list:
- Games must look ready for Greenlight to be included.
- Games must have an understandable English description to be included and so I can write about them.
- Reposted games that I have gone over in a previous blog post, will not be included.
- And, all of the games must have a trailer to be included.
Here are the latest rascally Games:
