Investigating what’s what in the latest queue wandering steam Greenlight.

Yep there are some games that have politely queued themselves for votes and the hope of being allowed to be sold on the digital distribution platform. I’m here to look through and talk about the games that manage to catch my interest which may make you decide to give them a look.

This blog post will cover the games of February 4 to 6, 2017.

As always I like to make note of a few things before I get onto the games. This list of games does not include all games nor is it trying to be a must vote for queue of games. These are games that stood out to me and I thought hey someone might like to know about such and such game.  I get that everyone has differing tastes when it comes to games so making an ultimate list is out unless I include every game which I don’t want to do as I see it as rather pointless. Also I have a few rules to help me narrow down the games.

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