Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced the launch of Steam Greenlight, a new platform feature that enlists the community's help in selecting some of the next games to be released on Steam.

Announced earlier this summer, Steam Greenlight allows developers and publishers to post information and media about their game in an effort to convince the Community that the game should be released on Steam. Greenlight piggybacks on Steam Workshop's flexible system that organizes content and lets customers rate and leave feedback.

"We've been working on this feature for the last few months with the input from a group of indie partners, and the response has been extremely positive," said Valve's Anna Sweet. "With the additional help of beta testers, we are able to launch with a solid line-up of titles for the community to start viewing and rating. And, as we've done with all Steam features, we intend to continually grow and modify Greenlight as more and more developers and community members have a chance to get involved."

As well as serving as a clearing house for game submissions, Greenlight provides an incredible level of added exposure for new games and an opportunity to connect directly with potential customers and fans.

Why do they call Source a leading technology?
Unless they're talking about their feats in game engine recycling...

The list is pretty lengthy and there is a fair amount of crap on it too...(Tow Truck Simulator? Road Works Simulator? Woodcutter Simulator?? :wtf:) There may be some gems in there. It doesn't help that is "shuffles" them everytime you change the page. Even if you filter the genre it still shuffles the titles within the results.

Good idea but not very well implemented.

I don't get why they don't add them all to Steam and let people vote with their dollars. There's no reason why people should have to vet them before inclusion.


I, too, hate the Steam "shuffling." I've noticed that before in other places on Steam and it is downright annoying.

Amazing.. Steam/Valve can't find the time to fix the hitboxes or glitches in L4D2 still. Can't find the time to fix the hacks and server redirects to 3rd pt servers.. Nor the time to fix the random and constant crashing problems lately...
"Problem affects virtually everyone every day in l4d2, servers hanging on load, crashing, bugging out, redirecting, forcing Ctrl+Atl+Del and hard shutdowns."
But they can find time to make a new rating system.. -1

Basically this is spot on. This "feature" is pointless.
