Just today Valve have announced the next list of titles that have been Greenlit by the popular public voting system Greenlight. After now running for three months the program has since its genesis in August seen a total of 50 titles from independent developers make it through the process and onto Steam.
This is a huge achievement and it does show that Greenlight is working wonders for the wider indie community. As before this system many indies found it impossible to get their games onto the Steam distribution platform, for one reason of another.
This months Greenlight is a special one as it’s the first one to have software come through onto Steam. But enough talk lets look at the titles now greenlit:
- Darkfall Unholy Wars
- Dawn of Fantasy
- Dragon’s Lair
- Euro Truck Simulator 2
- Gear Up
- Kinetic Void – Space Adventure
- The Light
- No Time To Explain
- Sang-Froid : Tales of Werewolves
- Waking Mars
- Action! Screen Recorder
- Bandicam: Game Recorder
- Construct 2
- Display Fusion
- HitFilm 2
- You Need A Budget 4
It’s great to see Primordia get onto Steam as personally I think that game does look fantastic and Waking Mars is another popular title that has a great deal going for it. Congratulations to all developers for getting accepted into Steam this month – it makes for a great early Christmas present no doubt.
Of course as with every system for every successful product that makes the cut there will always be plenty more that have missed out this time. One game that I think has been missed off Greenlight for far too long is Incredipede from Northway Games. It really is a fantastic game and I think it needs some Steam love right now.
The list does contain some surprises too, as who would have expected Euro Truck Simulator 2 to of made the cut this month? Or maybe I am just too out of tune with the Sim market to really know how popular it actually is.
Share in the comments below or take your outrage to the forums about what games you feel have been missed this week, hopefully we can get some of them onto Steam next month. Check out the official Valve post here.
