* Go vote for Nelly Cootalot, an indie adventure game with pirates and made by a silly guy with red beard.
* Also, Roundabout, a rather promising goon game, got greenlit recently. It has hats in limos and campy FMVs.




As it turns out, Steam gets flooded with new games that want in on the fun, but Gaben doesn't have the time to sort through all of them, so Gaben had an idea: I'll have my monkeys users do the work for me! And so Greenlight is born. Now, we use the power of Democracy to give Gaben more money.




Developers pay a $100 fee to be at the mercy of the masses to vote for their projects. Generally, it works rather like Kickstarter in that heavy promotion work is required to succeed.

Here, we laugh at the bad ones and do a peer-review process every month by holding a voting round to pick the very best games in the service. Those are added to the list below and to our Collection, which you are invited to upvote. We do this to make sure every good game has a chance to get on Steam and make the big bucks.




Warning this list hasn't been updated in ages.

ABC

Black Annex - office Syndicate. Corporate espionage, sabotage, and shooting all done in freaking QBASIC
Black Mirror II and III - atmospheric point & click adventure from Germany, the land of classic adventure games

Operation Smash - describing itself as "a real Metroidvania", you use a hammer to get around as if you were comic book Thor

PQR
Parallax - think outside the box in this monochrome, first-person puzzle game with overlapping spatial dimensions
Paranormal - a (sort of) procedurally generated horror game created by a ginger. Camera view and doesn't last long, but it's highly replayable

Rollers of the Realm - "the pinball puzzle role-playing game". Looks fun
Running With Rifles - imagine a more complex multiplayer Cannon Fodder with tons of squads running in a map simultaneously. Demo

Spud's Quest - an homage to the ancient Dizzy with modern trappings. Fresh from Kickstarter and looking great. Demo
Steam Marines - squad based roguelike in no way related to 40k Space Marines and Space Hulk, we swear. Alpha
Super Amazing Wagon Adventure - a coffee break game. Shoot things, die of dysentery in this randomly sequenced, unforgiving game. Demo

T
Taijou - a clever mashup of platformer and bullet hell shmup. Are you ready to rage quit? Here, have a demo

Talisman Digital Edition - based on the board game. With a single player campaign and standard multiplayer. Demo
T.E.C. 3001 - I am Batman. Wait, no, I am... Sonic? Bit Trip Runner 3D? Whatever this is, it's considered one of the best XBLIG titles

The Last Phoenix - bring life to a dead world in this peculiar aerial combat game. Demo
Toki Remake - remake of the old arcade game Toki with gorgeous new sprites

The list above is here to help you figure out what is what and pick whichever game you fancy the most to vote individually, but Greenlight also offers a tool called "Collections". A vote on a Collection will apply it to all games within. Imagine all the time you are saving! Ours is available here.

Blackspace - promising action-RTS hybrid with a focus on defense. Physics, customization, geological strategy, and destructible everything
Bleed - rather fast Contra-like game that, in spite of visuals, looks great in motion. If you like shooting things, this is the game for you. Demo

  • Seorin detected that submitters have complete control on the comments people post and some are even removing any negative feedback.
  • One of these is NEStalgia, whose author is so lovely he imploded his own game thread under a bunch of drama. Do not vote for this project.
  • Gnomoria was being targeted by a massive campaign of Dwarf Fortress fanboys who were downvoting it non-stop when it was possible to do so. Hell if I know why.
  • "Why won't Steam carry porn games?? I don't understand! Stop listening to Fox News, you close minded assholes!!"
  • "Vote for our game or you'll be responsible for the euthanasia of hundreds of cats!"
  • Because the people running NEStalgia love to burn bridges, they publically insulted the guy behind the Green Light Bundle for not including their game





Before the $100 fee came up, we had an entire week of everyone and their dog submitting crap non-stop. Those who ever wanted to make a game, used RPG Maker, or thought themselves as comedians smeared their poo poo all over Greenlight. It wasn't pretty, but the goons policed the place, got the bad stuff removed, and found the good projects. Before that, there were a million MSPaint abominations, Slenderman games, and Minecraft knock-offs; a few still remain.

But with the fee in place will there ever be new terrible projects to point and laugh at? Of course! Valve released the Concepts section and, Dunning-Kruger effect in action, it's full of hilarity.




Hi, and thanks for joining us here! There's some restrictions on what you can do, though -- for instance no dedicated thread for your game if it's started by yourself, no links to where we can buy it, and no vote requests (we can decide on that on our own). Just some common sense. Aside that, we love to hear from you! Please share your experiences, please answer questions about your project. Like you, there are many developers on SA and we welcome them with open arms, but nobody likes a shill.

Here are some games you should rate up:

Slingshot Racing - Originally a super fun iOS game, the basic slingshot mechanic is so amazingly satisfying that I'd love to buy it again on PC.
McPixel - A cross between WarioWare and a point-and-click adventure game. Just watch the Giant Bomb Quick Look of it.
Paper Monsters - Absolutely beautiful-looking platformer by the creators of Cordy, one of the most polished games on iOS/Android.

I've got a small personal favourites list of ones that I do hope get upvoted more. I'll be adding to it more later.

I'm especially happy to see Bleed in there. The art is amateurish, but don't let that put you off. Watch the gameplay video. I really dig how the action looks - there's a certain something there that just appeals, but it's hard to define.


Even better - it looks like a roguelike spliced with Space Hulk. Always good to have Space Hulk inspirations.

Better than a crowbar.


It'd be great if they could embed videos on the page. A trailer would help immensely to sell their idea to the masses. Or to throw endless memes at the masses. What I'm really trying to say is upvote Octodad 2.

Still if what Greenlight offers is even a quarter as hilarious as the poo poo on Kickstarter at this moment, then this thread will have been completely worth it.

The DROD games are some of the best puzzle games ever made (the original has to be over a decade old), but they've never gotten a huge audience. I'd absolutely love to see them on Steam, though they'd probably need to make their pricing system make more sense.

Yup, it's that one. I reported the game, but I don't know how much good it will do. Really, this sort of thing was inevitable, so I guess it's good to bring it to Steam's attention sooner rather than later. I just hope they do something about it.

Glad to see an actual good game put up by its actual developer! Game looks gorgeous, BTW, I'm glad I got in on the kickstarter.

That is precisely the thing to do, Avatar.


I was voting (up or down) on everything to come along, and after 120 votes I'm cut off. I know I'm not the only one. Can anyone confirm that there is a hard number there, or is it just votes/time, or what?

The bummer thing is that you can't even see the list of the new games to come up. I'd accept not being able to vote, but not seeing the games is no fun. I guess I can log out, but then the 120 games I already voted are back in the mix.

The Real Texas is up on Greenlight now. Well-reviewed indie action RPG. Part Earthbound, part Ultima and with a dash of Kafka. Low-fi graphics but ridiculously charming. There was a fairly big thread about it a while back, and folks really seemed to like it. This is the kinda thing that needs a foot up.

This had a kickstarter, didn't it? Did it make it? I thought it looked interesting enough.

Project Zomboid has been in development for a good while, and looks interesting.

No Time To Explain also looks interesting from what I've seen of it.

Boy I sure do see a lot of possible copyright infringement on some of these titles. A Portal 2 expansion?

Yup, it's that one. I reported the game, but I don't know how much good it will do. Really, this sort of thing was inevitable, so I guess it's good to bring it to Steam's attention sooner rather than later. I just hope they do something about it.

Reporting that was the first thing I did on Greenlight. I found it really conspicuous that there were no negative comments even before you created that Steam discussion too.

Hopefully they'll give him the boot.

We should definitely not be ignoring the discussions in this shitpile, they're hilarious too

Did it? If so, I think it made it, and has been out for a few months now. Well reviewed across the board. And, yes, I can confirm that the developer is a super-cool and chill guy.

Launch thread for the game, as posted above by Iris of Ether.

Not that I know of. It had straight up preorders on its own site, though. There is a small thread in the forums.

It's cool to see that Greenlight has been live for a matter of hours and is already completely filled with petulant, whiny children.

The Real Texas is a game I thought was both really good and probably wouldn't make it on Greenlight because the community wouldn't see past the oddball graphics. I hope I'm proven wrong.

Oh, this is going to be an interesting journey. Thank you, Steam.

I don't think I'm using Greenlight as it was intended. I'm just looking for the worst looking entries to see if they actually are, indeed, just that terrible. Games that look "good" aren't very interesting.

Oh god, actual effort. Voting hard. This kind of work easily out does 90% of what's on offer. I really want to support independent developers, it makes it a lot easier when the work is good like this is.
