It’s a fact that 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!
As you go through the list below, keep in mind that these are by no means the only new arrivals, simply those I decided to give my ‘yes’ vote (hence, recommendations). With that in mind, would you kindly help make sure none of them end up as a potential Stuck In Greenlight Limbo candidate, by casting a vote? And while you’re at it, do provide their creators with feedback. Good and/or bad, I’m sure they’ll appreciate both, as long as it’s expressed properly.

CATDAMMIT! Director’s Cat
It was just one of these mornings. Roman, a drunk, milcoholic cat was taking a hangover nap in a dirty backalley thinking that nothing worse in the world could ever happen to his sorry bottom.

The chainsaw immediately got stuck to his filthy paws, TURED ON and dragged him towards the city streets filled with kawaii inhabitants. This is how CATDAMMIT! begins.
