Steam Greenlight gets 40 new games, Freedom Fall included

Freedom Fall

By on November 13, 2013 at 10:58 am

Everyone loves an indie title or likes to pretend they do, at least. Luckily, if you’re not part of the cool club you may now join with a staggering 40 titles being approved through Steam’s Greenlight service.

There’s a tonne of stuff I don’t recognise although a quick parsing of the list includes the Australian-made platformer Freedom Fall, which I had the chance to play at PAX earlier this year. I also remembered the game for one of the creepiest cosplays I’ve ever seen in my life, but good people don’t let bad photos hit the internet.

If nothing else, we should celebrate whenever an Aussie title breaks through the noise. The fact that there’s a lot less oxygen for indies these days — in part because so many titles are getting Greenlit or sold through Humble Bundles and various other sales — is another matter.

One step at a time, though.

Nice to see another batch of my Kickstarted one’s getting the go ahead, but honestly the real shiner here is Bollywood Wannabe (Half joke, the game is actually pretty amusing)

I’ll have to go take another look at Freedom Fall.

 

Wait, CLANG got greenlit too? Isn’t it dead? Why would Valve greenlight something that’s never going to see release?

 

That’s the comment/question/criticism I raised over on that steam announcement this morning, that and some of the Kickstarted ones (Undead Overlord, Lords of Discord) failed to even reach the funding goal also, so good luck with them Seeing the light of day. :S

The greenlight process is pretty horribly broken :S
