Steam Greenlight, and a new project

by on Jun.09, 2014, under News, On Game Development

Steam Greenlight is an excellent way for indie developers to launch their games. It is essentially a platform where developers can submit a game, and the steam community can vote on those games, and if a game receives enough votes it is “Greenlit” and can be released and sold on the steam platform.

This platform solved one of the major problems for independant and smaller game development studios, which is the marketing and release of the game. Advertising campaigns and beta testing can be prohibitively expensive for indie developers, and can prevent a promising game being released, or being oticed.

Steam Greenlight allows developers to advertise and test their game, as well as responding to user feedback, during the greenlight process, which is something that is ordinarily very difficult to do.

There is even a section for concepts and early prototypes of games, and a game does not need to be fully finished in order to be “greenlit”.

I have not yet attempted to release a game on greenlight yet, but I have begun work ona  new project which I hope will be ready to submit in a number of months. The greenlight process itself of course, can take a long time, depending on how long it takes to gain a sufficient number of votes.

I will announce further details of my project as it progresses, I think it’s too early to do so now.
