Valve has added 15 more games to the ranks of Greenlight approvals, including a couple of Kickstarter favourites, Maia and Satellite Reign, and classic adventure The 7th Guest. With these new additions, which are listed in full below, the service’s total of approved titles reached 160.

While it was announcing the new games, Valve made an interesting comment about how Greenlight games are chosen; the service’s opaque selection criteria have come under fire from indie devs frustrated by the apparent immobility of their projects, even with plenty of community support. The post noted that votes aren’t the only thing that matter:

These titles were selected on the same criteria we have been using in the past: Votes in Greenlight give us a hugely valuable point of data in gauging community interest along with external factors such as press reviews, crowd-funding successes, performance on other similar platforms, and awards and contests to help form a more complete picture of community interest in each title.

The new additions are:

  • 7 Days To Die
  • The 7th Guest
  • Crashtastic
  • The Dead Linger
  • Door Kickers
  • INFRA
  • Maia
  • Nekro
  • The Novelist
  • Paranomal
  • Satellite Reign
  • Stranded Deep
  • Strike Vector
  • Viscera Cleanup Detail
  • Wayfarer: The Outer Reaches

7 Days to Die is rocking along!

 

mearehear,

I just looked at it after your comment and I’ve now backed it! Thank you for mentioning it!
I hope GON adds it to their “Adopt a Server” program when it comes out!

 

The continued lack of Grapple disturbs me. >:(

 

The 7th Guest

WHAT ?!?!?!?!
as in the classic point and click adventure are they doing a remake or just a re release ? :O

 

Haha The 7th Guest.

One of the first games to take advantage of the CD-ROM format with Full Motion Video.

 

holybumble,

No probs, it looks to have a lot of potential and has taken off quickly. You can see in the image below (if it works) just how quickly it jumped into action on Greenlight too.

I’ve just had a look at 7 Days to Die as well, looks very promising. Reminds of a Fallout themed Minecraft with a 3d Xcom Apocalypse type engine with the falling blocks. Highly tempted to fund despite current personal finances.

 

Yes ,7 days to die looks really good – I’m like @Heatho and seriously contemplating sending some money the devs way.

 

This doesn’t mean Satellite reign is now going to require Steam, right? …right??
