Did you know that Steam Greenlight just approved 100 more projects? No, not last month, but just this week. That brings the total up to 309 games in the last two months, which is a lot to look forward to. This Top 10 list therefore tried to trim the fat and list just the top tier, which includes a game from developer Playniac.
In a comical, yet telling turn of events, this news was even a surprise to the company. When prompted with congratulations for making the list, Playniac was not even aware of being approved on Steam Greenlight in the first place. Ain’t that something?
After thinking it was just a commendation for being on Greenlight in general, the developer said on Twitter: “Wait, what, we got #Greenlit???!!!!” Punctuation aside, the stupefaction was genuine and subsequently, the page for their game received an update with this success.
Now, we know for a fact that developers receive a mail from Valve upon approval, so it’s not like there’s no communication. That said, could it be that the frequency of approvals is going overboard lately? This seems like a rather big blip on the radar to miss, certainly as it’s vital for some games.
Do you think Steam Greenlight is approving too many games at once or do you feel it’s done properly like this?
