Steam Greenlight Approves 50 Titles Including Depression Quest

By   /   2 years ago

A total of 50 indie titles have been Greenlit by Valve for the start of the new year. Thus ensuring these titles an official Steam release in the future once the developers are done working with Valve to make their titles technically ready for release.

Some of the notable titles included are Kickstarter-funded projects like 7th Guest 3, Manos: The Hands of Fate, and a remake of the classic adventure game Shadowgate. The spotlight though is on Zoe Quinn’s Depression Quest, which is the first title to be made in the Twine framework that has been approved for a Steam release.

Depression Quest finally making the cut is great news for Quinn, who prior to this had to withdraw the game from Steam following harassment being aimed at her for being a woman. After putting the game back up a second time, she wrote that the harassment was an “accepted risk” and that “this will continue to be the cost for me to stay in games.”

The attacks though had no real effect on the game’s popularity which was already high even before the attacks began.

Depression Quest will be made available for free on Steam, but other developers can expect a significant boost in their sales once their titles are official put on Steam. The use base has already peaked around 7 million and with the indie scene gaining great momentum, greenlit developers would be expecting a great year to come.

For the complete list of today’s Greenlight-approved title you can head to Steam.
