A new service from Valve called Steam Greenlight lets users decide what games they’d like to see offered on Steam. With Steam Greenlight, gamers can now browse through a list of new games submitted by developers, view screenshots and videos, rate games, and even provide feedback. Valve will then use these ratings as a gauge when choosing new games for Steam.

While Steam Greenlight doesn’t hand full control over to users, it will enable Valve to use gamers’ opinions and tastes when choosing new games, which hasn’t been done before. There are already hundreds of games submitted, which you can browse by genre, platform and number of players. You can also filter games by ones you’ve already rated and ones you haven’t.

If you’re a developer and want to submit your game to Steam Greenlight, you need to have the following:

  • A square branding image (similar to a box cover) to represent your game in lists and search.
  • At least 1 video showing off your game or presenting your concept.
  • At least 4 screenshots or images.
  • A written description of the game along with tentative system requirements.

Your game must also run on Windows in order to be submitted, and a valid Steam account is also required. Whether your game gets accepted or not, submitting it to Greenlight could be a great way to get some interesting user feedback and opinions, which might help you improve your game even further.

    I've already voted for Receiver ( http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92927535 ) to get onto Steam.

    It's an absolutely fantastic game from Overgrowth that came from the 7DFPS focuses on story and mechanics.

    You have much more control over your weapon than in any other game I've played, including controlling the hammer, slide, safety, taking out the magazine, putting bullets in the magazine, etc.

    I can't recommend this game enough. Go check it out and vote for it if you like it.

    YES! I am quite please. I <3 steam. I have been increasingly upset by the lack of a feature like this. Now hopefully we get the chance to vote on some older classics that are absent from the steam store.
