Steam Greenlight Gets Much Needed New Features

By   /   3 years ago

The latest update to Steam Greenlight brings in a whole host of new features that were, in my opinion, greatly needed.

With this update, you’ll now be able to opt out of voting on a game, effectively skipping it. When you skip a game, it (currently) takes it out of your queue for a month. However, if you want to vote on a particular game before that time, you can now view all of your skipped games.

My favorite new feature, is the one that allows you to “favorite” games. This feature allows you to easily find your favorite games, making it easier to follow their latest developments. Alternatively, you can now “follow” games, which will update you automatically when a developer posts new announcements for said game.

If you’re an activist, you can help your favorite games out, by spreading the word via your “collection”, which is a visible list of all your favorite titles. If you’re a slightly more vocal activist, then you can share your love for your favorite games by sharing it with your friends, via the activity feed. Just, uhh, you know – don’t abuse it, or anything. That would be annoying.
