Valve Announces their First 10 Steam Greenlight Games

A blog post written by Alden Kroll went up on the Steam community website regarding the first day of Steam Greenlight. The project saw 622 games posted with over 2.3 million votes being poured in. Whats so special about this Greenlight business? Steam has always endeavored to be at the forefront of PC gaming and Project Greenlight is its newest way of putting developers and gamers together in a creative way. Essentially the idea is to help indie developers post their games in a place where a community will then vote on them and, ultimately, have them put up on Steam.

Today Greenlight helped approve 10 games to be released “in the months ahead”. The full list includes:

- Black Mesa: “Black Mesa is a re-envisioning of Valve Software's seminal game Half-Life."

- Cry of Fear: “Cry of Fear is a singleplayer modification of Half-Life 1 which brings you the horror you've always been afraid of.

Dream “Dream is a first person atmospheric exploration game that has you assume the role of Howard Phillips, a young graduate with no direction in life who develops an obsession with his dreams.”

- Heroes & Generals:Heroes & Generals is a new Free2Play Massive Online FPS with a Strategic Multiplayer Campaign that takes place during World War II.”

- Kenshi: “A free-roaming squad based RPG. Focusing on open-ended gameplay features rather than a linear story. Be a trader, a thief, a rebel, a mercenary, a business owner, a doctor, a bandit... the list goes on.”

- McPixel: “McPixel is a save-the-day guy that you guide through short challenges in an oldschool point'n'click fashion.”

- No More Room in Hell: “A tribute to the highly acclaimed film series in which the above quote originated from, No More Room in Hell (PC Gamer's Mod of the Year 2011, ModDB's Editor Choice Multiplayer Mod of the Year 2011), is a co-operative realistic first person survival horror modification for the Source Engine.”

- Project Zomboid: “Project Zomboid is an open-ended zombie-infested sandbox. It asks one simple question – how will you die?”

- Routine: “Routine is a first person Survival Horror set on a abandoned Moon Base designed around an 80's vision of the future, Your job is to find enough data and survive long enough to uncover the truth behind the strange disappearance of everyone stationed on the Lunar Research Station.”

- Towns: “Towns brings a fresh new take on the citybuilding/management genre by introducing many RPG features.”

It goes without saying that all these games should be on your radar as you scan through Steam in the coming months. Happy gaming!
