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 games worth mentioning -- Catacomb Kids, Cosmochoria, Duelyst, and Odallus: The Dark Call, at first glance -- but then there's Boogerman, which is uncomfortable to see approved considering it failed to receive funding on Kickstarter. And GearGrinder, a title already available on Steam (as "Sledgehammer"), has been greenlit. Huh?
Any day now Valve will roll out its post-Greenlight solution. That's what I keep telling myself.
Duelyst looks fucking mental, at least:
