The latest round of Steam Greenlight-approved games is headlined by a few Kickstarter successes, perhaps most notably the only-recently-funded Satellite Reign
. The Syndicate Wars
-inspired real-time strategy title achieved around $611K in backing, and now heads to Valve's portal alongside open-world zombie horror 7 Days to Die
and 70s sci-fi god game Maia
7 Days to Die
even-more-recently achieved its Kickstarter goal of $200K and still has six days of its campaign to go, while Maia
from indie dev Simon Roth, self-described as Dwarf Fortress
meets Dungeon Keeper
, was funded on Kickstarter late last year.
Other highlights from the round of 15 include The Novelist
, in which you play a ghost who observes and shapes the lives of a family, the re-release of 90s horror The 7th Guest
, sci-fi janitorial sim (yes really) Viscera Cleanup Detail,
and another Kickstarter success in Nekro
, which mixes Diablo-style gameplay with the charming art of necromancy.
We've got the full list of newly Greenlit games after the break.
