The Hunt for Steam Greenlight: August 22, 2014

As an indie worried about our Steam Greenlight campaign, we know just how big of a role promotion plays in getting your game onto Steam. (People can’t vote Yes if they don’t know it exists, right?) We thought it would be fun to dig around Steam Greenlight, find some really cool projects, and help spread¬†the word about them!

Here’s how it works:

So without much further ado, here are our inaugural picks in something we call, The Hunt for Steam Greenlight!

All similarities to any other graphics are completely... "unintentional."

Chad’s Pick


Look at that evil villain!


We had a chance to play what was the basis for this game while we visited PixelDash in Baton Rouge for Episode 3 of the show. At the time, it was still pretty nifty. (This was in early January.) Even then it had a lot of polish from the weapons and projectiles to the decorations placed about the levels.

Diego’s Pick

Relic Hunters Zero

Oooh! Wavy stuff!
I really dig the gameplay style which is an isometric run and gun style action game with a really fun visual style. Combat looks fluid and fun with a lot of attention given to tactics and positioning. Now, the name suggests there might be some exploration and discovery… I sure hope so!

Scott’s Pick

The Phantom PI Mission Apparition

Wail out, ghostly apparition!

Someone on their Greenlight page described it as Animal Crossing meets Ghostbusters!¬† The trailer does a terrific job at establishing setting, atmosphere, conflict and some of the mechanics you’ll use to stop the booooolies. (See what I did there?)

Thanks for reading! Please check out the projects on Steam, give them a thumbs up, and spread the word! Every bit helps.
