The Greenlight Groove: ‘Heroes of Loot’, ‘Threshold’ 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).

Steel Assault (GL)

Steel Assault is a 2D side-scrolling action game for PC, set in the year 2040 after revolts and fascist uprising have shocked the United States. The game mainly focuses on close combat, but the player is also equipped with a variety of different weapons. Its aesthetic is inspired by late 8-bit games on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), such as Shatterhand and Batman. These games utilized heavy dithering and details in negative space to create a dark atmosphere within the system’s limitations.

Threshold (GL)

Threshold is a puzzle platformer game where you play as the cute little gnomish wizard, known only as Hood, return home by solving the mysteries of magical, but treacherously unstable, lands. All is not as it seems, however, as depending on which direction Hood faces, the world changes to present different challenges.

Little Big Mansion (GL)

Little Big Mansion is a shortform videogame about the complicated relationship between two magicians with opposite powers. They embark on a quest together to explore an old mansion, but quickly find themselves unable to cooperate. It was originally conceived as a game jam prototype in 2013, and has since then become a full-fledged adventure.

The Bug Butcher (GL)

The Bug Butcher (@_AwfullyNice_)
You are Harry, a brash and tenacious exterminator, who runs a one man pest control service called “The Bug Butcher”. Amongst his peers Harry is known as ‘that guy who only fires up’, even if shooting straight were strategically far more efficient. Still no one dares to question the tactics of the best damn exterminator in the biz! So with a dash of vertical compulsion and a healthy arsenal of military grade weaponry Harry faces off with the meanest and toughest alien bugs that the universe has to offer.

VR Pong (GL)
