Hopefully you didn't feel like Steam was already feeling overcrowded with content, because Greenlight, the service that lets Steam users vote for the games they want to see offered on the store, has pushed through
50 new games eager for your love and attention. Don't get attached just yet though, as some games are still a ways off from release.
Ninja Pizza Girl
, for example, was greenlit but still has 11 days left on its Kickstarter campaign
. The game, which is less about saucy culinary delights and stealthy warriors and more about bullying and helping girls in particular with self-confidence, has not yet cleared its $35,000 AUD goal. Jotun
, a game featuring a hand-drawn art style and taking place in viking purgatory, has also not yet cleared
its Kickstarter funding goal, despite being greenlit.
If neither emotional encouragement nor fighting giant viking monsters are your thing, keep an eye on the minimalistic - yet nonetheless visually mesmerizing - Absolute Drift
, a game where your tires leave bold streaks across a white landscape as you race around, smashing into or avoiding bright red obstacles. Alternatively, there's Quadrant
, a horror game where you play as a NASA facility employee in 1979, who must survive
being trapped with mysterious creatures. We'd suggest keeping both
eyes on that one, so you can see where all the bad things come from.
Okay, so that's two paragraphs and we've described less than a tenth of what was greenlit yesterday. To avoid breaking the Internet (and your patience), we're gonna leave the list of games that were greenlit riiiiiight here
