Greenlight has a few interesting entries. Having rated 750 or so of 'em, I'm not sure what to make of what seems like a version of IdleRPG
, or what Road Works Simulator
A significant number of the games seem to be made in Ren'Py
, and the sheer number of games that have a similar art style to that of Minecraft is staggering. Then again, there's loads of cool indie games out there, but a few that stood out enough for me to favourite (and thereby follow the progress of) include Neocolonialism
I'm not sure what to make of Greenlight: the $100 mandatory Child's Play donation to get listed seems to be a bit anti-indie developer (although the number of fake Half-Life 3s that appeared in the first few days of Greenlight seem to make it necessary). I feel that perhaps making it a deposit would be a better solution. It also seems to force developers to become PR people: instead of contacting Valve, one now has to get fans to vote.
