Steam Greenlight adds new features

Steam Greenlight

Since its launch in August 2012, Steam Greenlight has had an average of three games posted to the service every day. That can make it hard to keep track of the numerous potential releases, but a new update helps solve that issue.

Based on consumer and developer feedback, Valve has added a few new features to the Greenlight service. The first of these is a skip option, allowing the user to postpone a yes/no vote on a project. The game will then reappear on the user’s queue approximately one month later.

Other features in the recent update include the ability to favorite a game, follow a game, or create a collection. The favorite option allows users to quickly find a particular project while the follow option notifies the user of new developer posts and announcements.

Collections are a place for users to post their favorite projects and update followers on their thoughts. Those not interested in creating their own collections can follow others and see what games are added over time.

Lastly, developers can now access a set of detailed statistics that highlight how many people are looking at their project and voting for it.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
