Well, it’s been six months since Round 1 of my Steam Greenlight Picks, and nearly all of them have succeeded in securing the necessary votes to be sold in the Steam Store. Of those, four titles have currently been released and are available for purchase.
These titles from before still need an upvote if you’re interested. Cognition is already available on other platforms, while Gray Matter is an older title looking for its spot on the digital shelves.
I wanted to pick out another 15 titles for this round, but either Greenlight is approving titles faster than new prospects can take their place, or they‘re simply hiding in the vast sea of chaff. We’ll have to make due with nine this time around.
One curious thing, though: I’m certain I saw at least three—if not four—separate titles who utilized the same phrase in their trailers. It’s as if someone has written a Video Game Marketing for Dummies book making promises that players will come in droves if you just use the phrase: “Who will you be?”
