Valve has been hitting on all cylinders lately, rolling out loads of updates, new features, and new titles on its Steam platform. One of the most intriguing features of Steam is Steam Greenlight, which allows the user community to help decide which games will debut on the platform.

Developers can post information about a given game, including screenshots and videos, to Steam Greenlight and attempt to solicit community support. If Steam’s users collectively insist on that title coming to Steam, the game gets a greenlight and the devs can finish developing the game with the knowledge that it has a home. Valve gets the reassurance that it will be at least moderately popular. It sounds like a win-win-win.

Several titles from the first batch of Steam Greenlight games

Today, Valve announced the second crop of games from Stream Greenlight. Initially, the company was planning on releasing only about 10, but as fate (and the quality and number of submissions) would have it, there’s an even 20 new games coming soon.

Here’s the full list:

Afterfall InSanity Extended Edition
Folk Tale
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Project Giana)
Interstellar Marines
Lost Story: The Last Days of Earth
Miner Wars 2081
Octodad: Dadliest Catch
Secrets of Grindea
The Intruder
The Stanley Parable: HD Remix

I was looking for Half-Life 3 (or at least Episode 3), after that title.... Broken Heart

Good collection, but I was REALLY hoping to see Pinball Arcade get the greenlight. It's a blast on Android and other platforms, so it'd be nice to have it available through Steam as well.

Also, I laughed out loud at 'Octodad: Dadliest Catch'.
