The Greenlight Groove: ‘Over The Hills And Far Away’, ‘Izle’ and More


Many Steam users don’t check or even notice most Greenlight additions; there are simply too many, making it rather time consuming. Hoping to alleviate this problem somewhat, I bring you The Greenlight Groove, featuring my recommendations from the past week!

Keep in mind that those listed below are by no means the only new arrivals, simply those I gave my ‘yes’ vote. With that in mind, would you kindly help make sure none end up as a potential Stuck In Greenlight Limbo candidate, by voting? Oh and do provide their creators with feedback. I’m sure they’ll appreciate anything, so long as it’s expressed properly (please, be nice).

Demon Hearts

Demon Hearts is a 2D platformer game that will leave you feeling blood thirsty for victory every time you play! Take the winged and dangerously swift Vampiress Snow through many challenging silhouette environments while withstanding the many divergent demons, evil forces, and bosses you will stumble across. Be vigilant to your surroundings as you traverse through many puzzling levels and transform into invincible blood sucking bats to battle your way through each checkpoint! Use your remorseless katana skills to find each level’s Demon Heart and then cut into its flesh to advance to the next level! Will you slay all the Demon Hearts?

Over The Hills And Far Away

The War of 1812. Northwest Frontier. William Aubrey, a rogue redcoat of the once-glorious 41st Regiment of Foot, is on the run. Wounded and tired, he seeks shelter during a thunderstorm inside an abandoned barn. But when he gets there, he finds he’s not alone. A young Shawnee girl, named Mai, is hiding from the rain too. Bleeding out and not wanting to brave the fierce winds outside, Aubrey decides to put up with her until the rains let up. Over the course of the story, the two of them get over their general anxiety and indifference for one another, slowly bonding to become friends. But will their friendship outlast the rains; when both return to the bloodshed and the outside world?

Wills and Wonders brings you on an adventure through Earth’s mythology as you embark on quests to capture creatures, find skills, and even new leaders.

Izle (@AreaEffect) [Kickstarter]
In Izle you build your own world. By summoning the power the gods you can create entire islands, each one procedurally generated so no two islands are the same, and each one ready for you to explore.


Kieru (@PineFireStudios)
Kieru’s world is monochrome, as are the two teams of stealthy Ninjas who occupy it. A black Ninja in shadow or a white Ninja in the light are completely invisible to their oblivious opponents. Stealth, deception and sudden, surprise aggression will win the day. The single splash of colour in this severe and uncompromising world are the blood trails left by wounded opponents. But do they lead to an easy kill or an ambush?
