I'm sure that's the first thing people are looking to add to their Steam library. What could possibly go wrong? :D
There's no manifesto. There's no formal plan.
Greenlight is the horror! Who at Valve come up with the categories? Where is "fps", "platformer", "puzzle", etc. ? Gaaah!!!
Is there a way to actually search for games by name? If there is I can't figure it out. Seems a strange omission.
Anyway, only up voted Gear Up and Slingshot Racing, the latter merely because it reminds me of Micro Machines from way back when. I'll get around to voting for a few more like RobF's game later on. There is some interesting stuff on there amongst all the shite.
Voted for Project Giana, Akaneiro: Demon Hunters (from Spicy Horse/American McGee), A walk in the dark and Towns.
"I do believe you are an unsophisticated, heartless bastard. It wasn't their fault that they didn't keep proper backups! It was thieves! I am better than you."
Okay yeah fair point, but still not sure why you'd vote down P:Z. I'm not their fans either, but I can't see why it shouldn't be on Steam. Except for anti-monopolistic reasons of course.
Alright, so I tried out It's a Wipe! It's a really cool idea, but it doesn't have the depth to back it up quite yet. But it is a very cool idea, and a manageable management game, at that. I ended up leaving some suggestions for the developer, and hope maybe he'll work on a few of the things I mentioned.
Personally, I think the battles part is fine. As a guild management game, only so much of the focus should be battles. It's the relationships with you and your guild members that need worked on, and the activities that should affect said relationships are nearly non-existent.
And yet, as a game that could be improved and end up on Steam one day, I upvoted it. The developer said he planned to keep working on it, the way one would keep working on an MMO, so it's got potential. It just hasn't quite gotten there yet.
This is brilliant... mainly because I've found out that this thing actually exists. In fact, the entire catalogue of LayerNet Simulator games is getting a Thumbs Up from me, and I'm following them... just for the hell of it.
Meanwhile, every other project mentioned in here is getting a thumbs down, because I've got a hole in my (left) sock and I want to take that out on others. So there.
Boy am I glad I jumped right in at the start before all the crap came. Trying to sift through (looks through greenlight tab) up to 19 pages now (must have been 5-6 last I looked) is a pain beyond comprehension.
My list so far:
Folk Tale (caught my eye, what can I say?)
And my personal favorite:
>>>>- Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land -<<<<
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
But, if that's the case, perhaps Valve needs to be clearer on what upvotes and downvotes mean.
"Moronic cynicism is a kind of na´vetÚ. It's na´vetÚ turned inside-out. Na´vetÚ wearing a sneer." -Momus
I guess it's to wean out the offensive or random applications with downvotes. The metric used for getting through is only upvotes as far as I can see.
No Streetsweeper simulator
This idea can burn
Just done some hunting about. Noticing a lot of weird pornographic VNs appearing. Oh valve what have you done?
Also... I just saw Battlefield 3 on there.
I hope all the people putting up those sorts of games know about...
