Dragon’s Lair Headlines The Next Batch Of Games To Hit Steam Via GreenlightBy: Zach Walton - November 30, 2012
Dragon’s Lair is kind of like Myst. Both games show up on every platform imaginable regardless of how many times people have played it. The former has now added a new platform to its growing portfolio as it’s one of the latest games to join Steam via Greenlight.
Steam Greenlight announced the next 13 games that will be coming to the digital distribution platform in the future. With these games, we’re now up to 50 indie titles being approved for the platform. Today’s announcement also marks the first time that software has been approved for release since it was added to Greenlight a few months ago.
“In just three months, the community has helped us identify 50 new titles for us to offer via Steam,” said Alden Kroll of Valve. “With the help of Greenlight, the indie games market share of games sold on Steam has increased by 50 percent for a third consecutive year. That’s a stat we are proud of, but one we also hope to increase as we learn more about Greenlight and continue to refine it in the new year.”
Here’s the 13 games that you will soon be able to purchase and play on Steam:
As for general purpose software, six titles were approved for the first round.
The third round of games reaching approval are of no surprise. The creative games are left by the wayside while games with already established fanbases rally its fans to get approved on Steam.
The software is a little more interesting, however, as users are approving more game and video creation software. The only odd one out is “You Need A Budget 4,” but I guess Steam users really do need a budget whenever Steam sales roll around.
