Steam Adds 14 New Indie Titles

Posted by at 11:56 am on July 26, 2013


Fourteen new video gamehave risen through the ranks of the Steam Greenlight program to achieve wide-scale distribution on the popular gaming platform.

In August 2012, Steam started Greenlight, a program that lets small-scale game developers pitch their game ideas to the Steam community at large. The community can “upvote” their favorite pitches, and the most popular games receive support from Steam and are eventually published on the platform.

It’s Steam’s way of partially crowdsourcing its approval process, and is also a great way for no-name or beginner game developers to get free publicity and feedback.

So far, 42 games have been published via Steam Greenlight, and these 14 will soon bring the number to 56:

  • “A Hat in Time”: an episodic adventure game geared toward children.
  • “Among the Sleep”: a first-person horror adventure that stars a child but is not for children.
  • “BROFORCE”: an over-the-top, ultra-violent side-scrolling platformer chock- full of explosions and “bro” puns.
  • “Centration”: which describes itself as a survival horror multiplayer sandbox game.
  • “Chasm”: a 2D action role-playing game that many have compared to the classic “Metroidvania.”
  • “Darkwood”: a survival horror game with a top-down perspective and a procedurally generated world.
  • “Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut”: an expansion of the 2010 cult hit “Deadly Premonition” for Xbox 360 and PS3.
  • “Divekick”: a quirky two-player fighting game that’s received considerable hype both on and off Steam.
  • “Operation Black Mesa”: This game started as a fan project in the world of “Half-Life,” considered one of the best games of all time.
  • “Project Awakened”: an action game that encourages players to add their own “mods,” or enhancements.
  • “Recruits”: a chaotic top-down shooter with a multiplayer feature.
  • “Rekoil”: a first-person shooter with an original story and competitive multiplayer.
  • “Shelter”: In this third-person adventure game you play as a mother badger who must brave the wilds and take care of her cubs.
  • “Starmade”: a dizzying first-person shooter set in space and with “Minecraft”-like graphics.

The games have yet to be published; they’ll be available over the next few weeks and months. Pricing information on most of the games is not yet available. You can read more about each game, including development updates and feedback, at Steam’s site.
