Steam Greenlight announced by Valve
Today Valve have announced a new community platform feature, enlisting their help in picking and choosing future releases on Steam.
The premise is that Steam Greenlight will allow developers and publishers to post information and media about their game or project in an effort to convince the Community that their game is Steam-worthy.
Greenlight plans to work in conjunction with the recently released Steam Workshop flexible system that organizes content and lets users leave feedback.
Anna Sweet of Valve said: “Making the call to publish or not publish a title isn’t fun.
“Many times opinions vary and our internal jury is hung on a decision. But with the introduction of the Steam Workshop we realized an opportunity to enlist the community’s help as we review certain titles and, hopefully, increase the volume and quality of creative submissions.”
Steam Greenlight is currently set for release on 30th August.
