The Greenlight Groove: Courier of the Crypts, Wormhole Ventures and LOTS More

Greenlight

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!

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, as long as it’s expressed properly (please, be nice).

Note: someone over at Valve managed to break the Greenlight vote queueing thingie, which is why this went up a few days late. Better late than never though, right?

There was a cancelled terraforming project in this system which has left behind an abandoned yet habitable planet and a lot of infastructure.

Your task, given to you by the AI that woke you up, is to land a ship on the abandoned planet, and it won’t be easy.

Wormhole Ventures (@WormholeV)
In the recent years the humans of the Sol system have discovered the way to open wormholes to travel through. It takes tremendous power to open these wormholes. They cannot be maintained for long. As the large constructor ships travel through the vast voids of space to new locations they convert themselves into Anchor Stations. These anchor stations are sometimes referred to as core stations by people who regularly traverse wormholes as they are typically the central hub of activity for a region. These anchor stations provide a point that a wormhole from the Sol system may link up to.
