Green lit my first game earlier today. It was Waiting for Horus if anyone is curious. I'm curious to know what the first game will be.

There is a lot wrong with this service if you ask me...

Say they were to put Minecraft on Greenlight. Everyone would vote for it and constantly gander the attention of everyone towards it. What about the other, lesser known and perhaps hidden-classic games? Hopefully we'll be seeing good things coming from this service in the long-run. Hopefully.

Nagare That game looks really nice from what I'm looking at right now, especially the art direction. Thanks for sharing.

Edit: A lot of people don't seem to be taking this service very seriously. I mean really, House Fire Simulator 2013? What the hell?

Mrblikey - Well, for one thing Minecraft isn't coming to steam. Won't stop people from adding it possibly, but it's not going to.

There are still going to be plenty of games that get Steam releases without the need for Community involvement.

I think Greenlight is a decent supplement to the regular process.

Mrblikey, no problem. It is probably one of the lesser known games, but I think it looks awesome. I took part in the latest beta weekend (there is another one on Sunday) and I really enjoyed it.

Link for others.

I also think exposure will be a big problem. I think most titles will never be noticed, and only a few will actually make it big. XBLIG also has that problem.

Didn't have that much of a problem when I realized I could sort by category in there. Although the options for racing are pretty awful right now hopefully that changes. The demo for the slot car game didn't work either which had me rage out a bit as I love making tracks >> played the hell out of Revolt with friends.
