Six more Steam Greenlight titles were announced as greenlit today, with a healthy dose of variety in the types of games chosen. Horror fans can look forward to The Legend; platforming proponents should anticipate Bleed; like strategy games? Give Legends of Eisenwald a looksie; future game devs can now simulate their experiences on Steam with Game Dev Tycoon; anarchists can soon play out their desires in RIOT; and the "country-life RPG" Stardew Valley finally joins the Steam library.

Personally, I'm really looking forward to Stardew Valley. The music used in the trailer is incredibly relaxing, and the game itself looks to complement the mood well. It also helps that the art is beautiful, creating one really solid-looking game. It just seems like a nice place to be.

The post also mentions how Valve decides what games to Greenlight, an idea that even most developers don't understand. Other than simply looking at Greenlight votes, the team looks at external factors like "press reviews, crowd-funding successes, performance on other platforms, and awards and contests." So when your favorite game isn't Greenlit, you now know who to blame. Everyone.

Four Sided Fantasy does both sidescrolling and screen wrapping

Way back in the day, most side-view took place on a single screen at a time, and often moving off the edge of one side caused the player to reappear on the other. (See: Joust, Asteroids, Mario Bros.) Then Super Mario Bros. c...more

Some weird stuff was just greenlit on Steam

When a new batch of Greenlight titles gets approved for release on Steam, I have a pretty simple routine: scan the list for recognizable names or thumbnails that show potential. That's it. The April 3 batch does have some gam...more
