Steam to add 21 more indie PC games via Greenlight

Valve announced back in September that it would add 10 indie games to its Steam service as part of the company's community drive Steam Greenlight efforts. Valve launched Steam Greenlight as a way for PC game developers to generate grass roots efforts to get their games to be publishers on Steam.

Today, Valve announced that 21 more games have been picked to be published on Steam as a result of community campaigns on the Steam Greenlight service. Valve previously announced it would add another 10 more games this month but today it said, "Given the number and quality of games submitted, and the ship date of many of the top-ranking titles, the decision was made to increase the size of this group."

The new list of Greenlight-based games that will eventually be added for download and/or purchase via Steam in the coming months include:

  • Afterfall InSanity Extended Edition
  • AirBuccaneers
  • Blockscape
  • Contrast
  • Fly'n
  • Folk Tale
  • Forge
  • Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Project Giana)
  • Gnomoria
  • Interstellar Marines
  • Lost Story: The Last Days of Earth
  • Miasmata
  • Miner Wars 2081
  • NEOTOKYO
  • Octodad: Dadliest Catch
  • Perpetuum
  • POSTAL 2 COMPLETE
  • Secrets of Grindea
  • The Intruder
  • The Stanley Parable: HD Remix
  • Yogventures!

I'm so getting that game, looks awesome!

I just dont see the big deal about Greenlight because people have been self-publishing games before it and they been using other services that do the same thing as Greenlight without needing other people to vote for it appear on Steam. Look at 2D boy's first game "World of Goo" if that came out today would they have to go through Greenlight because it is just two unknown guys and not some big team.

From my understanding, the game is put onto Steam for no cost (excluding the initial $100 posting fee).

It's a big deal because it's "free" advertising and file hosting. Then there's the fact that they are backed by the Valve name. Not everyone will download Joe Shmoe's game from some random site asking for paypal payment. I wouldn't have bought McPixel if it weren't for Greenlight because I wouldn't have heard of it.

Were in October now and the promised Black Mesa is still to appear on steam, good job it wasn't reliant on being on there, most people have got it direct from the devs site by now. So if I were the devs I would ask for my $100 back.

I think Black Mesa was added before the 100$ requirement, in any case, I think there's a LOT of people who don't know you can get n anywhere else and don't even know it exists until it pops up on their steam.

I'm not sure if you're blaming Valve here or the developers for it not being on Steam yet as it's a two-way street. It's not like they just gank their setup.exe and put it on their content servers. Also, there was no $100 payment because it was in the first 10 greenlit games...
