Steam accepted a mini batch of games and software on Greenlight today, picking up four new, community-voted titles to eventually launch on Steam. The three games are Edge of Space
and Papers, Please
, and the software title is Substance Designer 3
, a texturing toolset.
Edge of Space
is a 2D terraforming experiment
set on a distant, rogue planet; Venetica
is an adventure set in historical Venice and starring Scarlett, the daughter of Death; and Papers, Please
is an intense immigration checkpoint simulator.
Steam will likely continue Greenlighting games in smaller batches so the entire process can move more quickly, this round's announcement reads.
"These titles were selected on the same criteria we have been using in the past: Votes in Greenlight give us a hugely valuable point of data in gauging community interest along with external factors such as press reviews, crowd-funding successes, performance on other platforms, and awards and contests to help form a more complete picture of community interest in each title," the announcement says.
