Those who follow Steam religiously will be pleased to know that its ranks of games and software will soon expand. Another round of Steam Greenlight games have just been approved, bringing the total number of approved games to 44 and number of approved applications to 6. All in all, 50 approved games and programs isn’t too bad considering Steam Greenlight only just launched in August 2012.
This is a pretty momentous approval moment, since it’s the first time both games and programs have been voted on by the people. Prior to this, we’d only seen Steam Greenlight games. But enough talk, let’s look at the items that will eventually be added to Steam.
You’ll be seeing these games soon.
- Darkfall: Unholy Wars
- Dawn of Fantasy
- Dragon’s Lair
- Euro Truck Simulator 2
- Gear Up
- Kinectic Void: Space Adventure
- The Light
- No Time to Explain
- Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves
- Waking Mars
Waking Mars was recently part of the Humble Bundle for Android 4, with the Windows and Mac version already finished, so we’ll probably see it on Steam very soon.
And these are the six pieces of software that were approved.
- Action! Screen Recorder
- Bandicam: Game Recorder
- Construct 2
- Display Fusion
- HitFilm 2
- You Need a Budget 4
As you can see, a lot of the approved programs have to do with recording game footage or screen captures.
Valve has not stated when the next batch of approved Steam Greenlight games and applications will be released. I wouldn’t be surprised if the next round didn’t appear until January 2013. That’s fine though, as the program is doing quite well as it is.
