Earlier today, Steam released a list of ten games which have passed through the gauntlet of approval that is Steam Greenlight. Some of the games listed, were not surprising. Anodyne, for example, just finished a large Pirate Bay promotion campaign that undoubtedly boosted popular opinion of the title. You may remember we featured Distance in an IGM Greenlight feature awhile back. We knew once people knew of Distance, they would have to get their hands on it.
I was surprised to see Receiver on the list, considering the game has been out since late last Summer, and I had not heard of any updates from Wolfire Games since Receiver’s game-jam conception and launch.
The full list of Greenlit games are as follows; we will be examining each of these games closer, in the coming weeks.
Anodyne – Sean Hogan and Jonathan Kittaka
Distance – Refract Studios
Evoland – Shiro Games
Huntsman: The Orphanage – Shadowshifters
Kingdom Rush – Ironhide Game Studio
Legends of Dawn – Dreamatrix Game Studios
Organ Trail: Director’s Cut – The Men Who Wear Many Hats
Receiver – Wolfire Games
Surgeon Simulator 2013 – Bossa Studios
War Thunder – Gaijin Entertainment
