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).
Pixel Rift (@PixelRiftgame)
A game within a game, Pixel Rift is original, fun and full of surprises that will keep you guessing along the way. You will venture from living rooms to classrooms, playing consoles, handhelds and even arcade machine as you fight the mundane distractions of life so that you can get down to what’s most important – gaming! From the black and white 2D sprites of the 70s to the bright and colourful 3D graphics of the 90s, Pixel Rift truly is a nostalgic and mad trip down memory lane.

Ian’s Eyes (@IansEyesGame)

Could you help him escape alive? Use your bark to distract the enemy and look for safe places to hide Ian out, but don’t let him alone too much – he could run away driven by panic! Your survival is the only way to discover the hidden secret between the walls of the Blue Norholm Primary School…
The Living Dungeon
There are no To Hit Rolls, AC bonuses, or saving rolls. You roll choices. You then have 2 tense minutes of deciding what to do with those choices. Your friends won’t help you make those choices. They will trick you and lead you to your doom. Trust us. We’ve played the physical board game of this with friends for 3 years, and it’s more backstabbingly awesome than some Japanese honeybee’s cooking a giant hornet (you’ll have to look that one up)

Or you can just devote yourself to drunkenness, sacrificing your last moments for a rakish revelry?

It’s your job to rebuild and renovate the ailing tavern against the backdrop of a fantasy world at war.
