100,000 votes? I can see a few games getting there, but I can see plenty missing out. If publishers start promoting greenlight more though I can see us steam addicts making the push.


Until they get an initial filter to get rid of the garbage before it can even be voted, I don't see anything making it.

There should be a fee to get your stuff listed on greenlight to help clean it up. $100 sounds reasonable. Then if your game makes it you recoup those initial costs.

That's an absurd amount of votes needed. If down votes cancel up votes nothing will ever get green lighted.

Seems like an extraordinary amount, doesn't it? One of the FAQs said that they haven't settled on an exact system yet, so perhaps that number will come down.

Does Steam release any sales figures? Is there any way to see what sort of sales numbers games that are already on steam get?

Here it is.

How many votes does a game need to get selected?

It's going to change during the first few days/weeks since we don't know what kind of traffic to expect. Part of the drive for this system is the need for customers to help us prioritize which games they want to see made available on Steam. So the specific number of votes doesn't matter as much as relative interest in a game compared with other games in Steam Greenlight.
We're going to be reaching out to developers as we see their games getting traction regardless of whether they have achieved a specific number of votes or are sitting 1st or 2nd place at any given time. We are most interested in finding the games that people want, not requiring them to always hit a specific number of votes.

LOL yup. I was like hmmm must of been free keys or very very cheap keys for this game for it to all of sudden to appear on here like this.

Lol had to remove all my entries when I read this, found it on my groupees download page.

I don't think I need to say anything about this one.

Seduce Me.

Might be NWS content depending on where you work.



There really needs to be a dev account flag, apparently someone threw up the original Turok (it's been deleted already). They definitely need to be verified that the right person is adding the game and not some random person not tied to it at all.


More edit:
Someone added Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, image in spoiler tag.

Spoiler

damn it was removed :cry:

Seriously, this.

I found an RPG Maker Ace game on Greenlight (with a rather well done explanation of it) that was not only using all the default RPG Maker graphics, but also the default character that the game includes in every new project you create. They didn't even bother change his name from what it starts off as...

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

Gotham City Imposters is now free to play.

Downloading it now! :D

It's kind of silly that they ever charged for it, since it was using what looked like a free-to-play model straight from the beginning.

Having been an MMO guild leader/officer (high-end raiding) for many years I can safely say it is NOT something I would want to play a sim of. Nice idea in theory, but not something I'd ever want to play for fun.

I think if we all band together, this can reach fruition. Everybody vote NOW!


Click on the dev to go to their Greenlight page with all of their games. They have a dozen or so simulators from the mining and tunneling to tanks.

If you don't include the game name, the likelyhood I click through is almost zero.

I can't believe no one at steam checks these before they go out. Some, especially the bootlegs, are an awful waste. It honestly might be part of Steam's strategy to get devs to stop pestering. "Look, your Adventure Game Studio game with Paint graphics was down voted 1000 times. Please, stop submitting it."

Endless Space is also a weekend deal for $15.

Totally didn't need to be tempted by that. XD


What happened to this? I've been waiting patiently and still $30. :wall:

Liking Greenlight so far, even if games don't even make it to Steam it certainly helps promote them through a more mainstream channel. There are games that would not have caught my eye before (well since it is still new the list is still fairly small and keeps my focus).

However, with the good there is the bad. No developer wants bad press when promoting a game but how far can it go before it's right to begin censoring some of them? Upon reading comments I came to the attention of some Greenlight "drama" if I may say, concerning the developer's deletion of individual negative comments of a game I upvoted. This leaves me questioning my decision...but I digress. It seems the structure of Greenlight will need some changes.

One game that has caught my eye: http://steamcommunit...ls/?id=92952101
Hat, Time Traveling Umbrella, and a evil Mustache Girl? Instant vote for me. Good or bad it's planned to be a short game valued at $1 at the moment so why not?

Very tempted by this, this plus buying the dlcs at 75% off in the future would be cheaper than the season pass at the same discount by $.50. How significant are the dlc packs?


I also see that Deus Ex HR is on sale, which I've wanted to wait for a sub $10 for the base game plus missing link. $9 for both, how long will this square deal go on for so I can make up my mind.

Whelp, I've done it now. Just ordered my new graphics card. I can finally embrace my inner graphics whore. I just hope it gets here soon. I've been holding off Sleepy Dawgz for as long as I can so I can play it in its full glory.

Also, Fuck The Walking Dead. Half way through Episode 3, and mannnnn. :cry:

Decided to grab Quantum Conundrum and Deus Ex HR + Missing Link for $12 total, bumping them to the top of the backlog to hopefully finish before Torchlight II on 9/20.

Sale was briefly live. It was removed due to a miscommunication with the publisher. I wish I had bought it when I saw it at work, but no, I had to wait til I got home.

Welp, probably going to get Quantum Conundrum now. Sub $5 just hits my sweet spot, even without the DLC. I can pick those up ultra-cheap later anyway! ... [or maybe not. Gamefly wants to call me and give me an authorization PIN... I can't hear. Alas.]

I also ordered a new graphics card, so even more of my games should run like butter now! I am so excited. It's like Christmas for me. I'll actually be able to play the copy of Borderlands 2 I pre-ordered!
