Steam Greenlight is a competitive place. Our Steam Greenlight campaign has been hard fought thus far. We know just how big of a role promotion plays in getting your game onto Steam. It’s time for our semi-regular piece where we highlight some unique, cool, or just plain fun Steam Greenlight games.
It’s time for…
Battle Brothers is a really fun looking strategy game. The art is similar to Diego’s style. (Gorgeous and hand-painted.) Some of the game is procedurally generated, so that’s a replayability plus. If you’re curious to try before giving them the vote, you can even go download their combat demo: http://battlebrothersgame.com/downloads/.
I Can’t Escape: Darkness
On the opposite end of the sprectrum: A horror game! Oh my! The game looks pretty cool, and apparently it’s a follow up from a game on Newgrounds! (http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/610205) It’s refreshing to see new entries into the genre.
Ultraworld looks cool and unique. It has a seemingly interesting narrative to deliver. The color palette is appetizing. It is, a bit of a mystery, though. It will be interesting to see more. Again, if you don’t want to wait for Steam, you can check it out at http://visit-ultraworld.com.
Thanks for reading! Please check out the projects on Steam, give them a thumbs up, and spread the word! Every bit helps.
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. Every once in a while we dig around Steam Greenlight, find some really cool projects, and help spread the word about them!
Here’s how it works:
Here are this weeks picks for games that are in The Hunt For Steam Greenlight.
Words for Evil
A typing fantasy RPG? Yeah. The trailer looks pretty awesome and reminds me of games such as 10,000,000 and what we were trying to create, This is My Quest. It purports to have complex combat, multiple varieties of word game based on the action at hand, and tons of content.
24 Killers intrigued me with its cool artwork. It turns out this one dude, Todd Luke, is like Shakey Graves for indie games. According to his Kickstarter, which was successfully funded, he is tackling the game’s programming, art, and music alone. It’s an adventure game where “four miscreant spirits are possessing the people in a small island town, and you’re responsible for finding them.” Sign me up!
A Rite from the Stars
A Rite from the Stars rounds our collection this week. It looks playful. It looks interesting. It has care and attention dripping from it’s pores. The trailer is well done. This game takes our third vote this week.
That’s all folks! Thanks for reading. Please check out the projects on Steam, give them a thumbs up, and spread the word! Every bit helps.
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!
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.
Relic Hunters Zero
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!
The Phantom PI Mission 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?)
