Greenlight Beta group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/greenlightbeta#


What is Steam Greenlight?

Steam Greenlight is a new system that enlists the community's help in picking some of the next games to be released on Steam. Developers post information, screenshots, and videos for their game and seek a critical mass of community support in order to get selected for distribution. Steam Greenlight also helps developers get feedback from potential customers and start creating an active community around their game as early in the development process as they like.


How does this differ from other stores’ submission processes?

The prime difference is the size of the team that gets to decide what gets released. For many stores, there is a team that reviews entries and decides what gets past the gates. We're approaching this from a different angle: The community should be deciding what gets released. After all, it’s the community that will ultimately be the ones deciding which release they spend their money on.



I know of a game that should be here. What do I do?

Go contact the game developer and suggest that they submit their game here for consideration.


What do I need in order to submit my game?

You'll need a valid and non-limited Steam account (yes, that means you'll need to own a game on Steam). Then, you'll need to fill out the submission form, including some information about you and your game. The submission will require:

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


Do not make fake projects, these will get a you a week ban from the Steam community features, blatant copyright of other games, may be more severe.

I don't think I've played a PC pinball game since that pack-in title that came with Windows in the late 90s. It'd be interesting to bust out the 360 pad to play one, probably feel more natural using the triggers and bumpers than using a keyboard.

I think he was referencing in jest Valis's misguided mini-rant in the Stream thread about Valve conspiring against pinball games.

I suppose that they have already contacted with some of the developers of the previously rejected games.

As Valve still has right of refusal so I think shovelware should be kept to a minimum - unless those that get through sell well and Valve sees the dollar signs.

Doesn't valve still have the last word? I'm not completely sure about how this will work, but I suppose that valve will want to reatain a degree of control over the content in their service.

Exactly my feeling with Shovelware, but it seems to sell, as it keeps coming and coming for the Wii.

So any one knows when is really coming? because we were preparing to present a game with it.
I suppose its stuck at Valve Time limbo like the first time their majority of projects are announced, and will have to wait to 2013.

Probably this afternoon. 1 PM EST seems to be the de facto Valve update time.

It should go live some time within the next 17 hours. It's a few minutes shy of 7AM over in Valve Land, but I assume the launch will coincide with the general Steam update in about three hours.

Edit: b10.

If VALVe were ready to announce HL3 in the near future, this would be the smartest way to announce it.

But no.

Thanks guys!
I hoped that valve time would be a little with us this time, at least a week. The trailer for our game needs still the final touches.
Oh well.

No hats, Origin drm seemed like a better fit, game will have day 1 dlc with different coloured noughts and crosses.

But the game is procedurally generated?
Pros: Origin DRM, DLC & Visceral
Cons: 'Oscar Worthy story'.

You have a customer sir!
