If you, my friend, have felt as if this year Steam has gone a bit nuts with new releases, you are arguably correct.
Thanks to the constant barrage of Steam Greenlight approvals, the digital distribution platform pushed out as many releases in the first 20 weeks of 2014 as in the entirety of 2013.
It is acceptable at this juncture to lean back in your chair, adopt a baffled expression, and exclaim “whoa”.
The observation comes courtesy of Gamasutra, drawing on publicly scrape-able data.
This significant upswing in releases may explain why Valve has taken steps to increase discoverability on Steam, which seems to be powering towards an App Store-like future.
