Steam is bringing some new contenders to the market through its Greenlight service this week. This batch of titles is a very eclectic offering; a little something for everyone, from the casual player to the adventure game fan.

The quality of these selected titles really speaks not only to hard work of the developers but also to the dedication and love of their fan bases to try and champion their favorite upcoming titles. Some highlights include the fantasy inspired world of In Verbis Virtus where spells are cast by speaking them through your microphone, the haunting and desolate 3D adventure title Homesick and the silhouetted, fast-paced platformer Vector

The rest of the titles include: Coginition: An Erica Reed ThrillerDay One: Garry's IncidentGuncraftSuper Motherload, and Verdun. Steam has also Greenlit another three software titles: Actual Multiple MonitorsFL Studio, and Leadwerks 3: Steam Edition.

I'll admit, Vector may have taken a lot of inspiration from another well-loved indie running-based title, even down to using a similar intro sequence, but I would like to try it out before getting my torches and pitchforks ready. I can't wait to see what gets Greenlit next!

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more
