Valve has announced the first set of games submitted through Valve’s Greenlight service on Steam that will move onto the next step, and eventually be released through the service proper.
Here’s the list:
- Black Mesa
- Cry of Fear
- Heroes & Generals
- No More Room in Hell
- Project Zomboid
As many of these games are not yet done, they will obviously not be launching simultaneously.
"The Steam community rallied around these titles and made them the clear choice for the first set of titles to launch out of Greenlight," said Anna Sweet, who works in business development at Valve, in this afternoon's press release. "Since launch, hundreds of titles have been submitted, with more coming in every day. We expect to be announcing more titles coming to Steam via Greenlight soon."
The company has come under scrutiny recently for a $100 requirement to submit games to Greenlight, albeit the $100 goes to Penny Arcade’s Child’s Play charity. Developers weighed in for a piece last week on Giant Bomb, and the conversation continues, as these games move forward, and they earn a potentially lucrative spot on Steam.
