Through its Greenlight crowd-sourcing initiative, Valve has greenlit more games to be listed on its digital distribution platform Steam. The company has announced that it will soon have eight more indie games, along with three software titles. As with the previously greenlit titles, these will be released independently by their own developers in the coming weeks, or months.
The games that have been greenlit are Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, Day One: Garry’s Incident, Guncraft, Homesick, In Verbis Virtus, Super Motherload, Vector and Verdun. Software titles greenlit are Actual Multiple Monitors, FL Studio and Leadwerks 3: Steam Edition.

Valve had launched Greenlight back in August last year. It allows developers and publishers to post information and media about their game in an effort to convince the Community that the game should be released on Steam. Greenlight piggybacks on Steam Workshop’s flexible system that organises content and lets customers rate and leave feedback. Apart from serving as a clearing house for game submissions, Greenlight also provides an incredible level of added exposure for new games and an opportunity to connect directly with potential customers and fans.
The problem smaller developers had with Steam was when they were attempting to get their game on Steam, they’d either get a “yes” or “no” for an answer. No explanation was given otherwise. Greenlight looks to help the developers who submit videos, demos, screenshots etc. and let the community decide if the game is worth being on Steam.
You can check out Greenlight and participate on its Steam Community page.
