Six More Games Get The Greenlight
This news seems to have slipped past most people’s radar in the wake of last week’s E3 fervor. Once again continuing the trend of smaller, more frequent batches of Greenlit titles, Valve recently announced that six new games and a piece of software have made it through Greenlight:
- Assetto Corsa
- Ether One
- GunZ 2: The Second Duel
- Heaven Benchmark (Software)
- The Forest
Seems like the survival horror fans have been browsing Greenlight a lot lately. The games that jump out the most, to me at least, are The Forest, Stonehearth, and Ether One. I highlighted The Forest in my previous Greenlight Spotlight, so it is good to see it Greenlit. I recall Stonehearth getting a lot of hype not too long ago due to a highly successful Kickstarter that generated 626% of its original target goal. I haven’t really paid any attention to Ether One until recently, but it seems to have a cool concept. You play as a “Restorer,” someone who is sent into the minds of people with severe mental illnesses and trauma so that they can restructure their shattered memories and help them lead a normal life. DreadOut looks like Fatal Frame with a smart phone and an Indonesian setting.
The only game on this list I’m weary of is GunZ 2: The Second Duel. I know nothing about this sequel, but I remember playing the original game many years back. It was kind of fun, but it was also a really grindy Korean free-to-play that tried to “encourage” you to buy boosts and weapons by making the progression process as slow as possible, so forgive me for not being too enthusiastic about the sequel.
