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!
The Minims – A New Beginning (@beyond_hills)
In the game, the player must use logic, collect important items, and solve puzzles in order to guide Mii in his search to find his life partner Mo. Tracing her steps he embarks on a journey which becomes a self-seeking exploration regarding life choices and personal values. With its imaginative artwork, its compelling story and its relaxing tempo, it introduces the player to a quirky and serene universe.
Orion: A Sci-Fi Visual Novel (@cylightstudios)
Sam Acacius has received a horrifying message: the section of the Orion Torus where he lives, his only home, will be destroyed. This information has been entrusted to him alone. With the identity of the messenger itself obscured, Sam must decide whether the risks of investigation are worth it. What could a single person do to stop the inevitable?
Boyfriend Stealer (@bikinijamas) [Kickstarter]
Shanoa has been expelled from college… again. In her quest for the perfect boyfriend, she has never let trivial things like commitment stop her from getting the man of someone’s dreams. Unfortunately, her latest acquisition was the boyfriend of the dean’s daughter!
Amber Throne (@amberthrone)
Amber Throne is a traditional JRPG-styled game that focuses on turn-based battling and some light exploration. The game features a large cast of unique monsters that change stances depending on actions taken during combat, and a party with mostly hybridized roles to deal with them. Learning monster behavior is essential to reach victory. There is no mana to limit skill use, and no traditional “healer” character, letting you loosen up and use skills and items whenever/however you’d like, and making battles a little more strategic!
The Human Reignition Project (@sekaiproject)
The game’s set in Japan, in the relatively near future. Still this century, but a couple decades from now. Advancements in fields like robotics have made a lot of jobs redundant, and nearly omnipresent devices like smartphones have the done the same for face-to-face conversation. HRP as a game examines the impact that technologies like these have on our lives and relationships. Within the story, the Human Reignition Project is a small group formed by one old lecturer; a relic of a more personal generation. He’d like to see things go back closer to the way they were.
