Game Dev Tycoon among batch of six new Greenlight titles

By Brenna Hillier, Friday, 17 May 2013 00:53 GMT

Six more games have been approved by Valve’s esoteric Greenlight service for eventual release through the premiere PC distribution platform.

Game Dev Tycoon’s inclusion is pretty interesting; developers have complained that it’s very difficult to build the kind of momentum needed to catch Valve’s attention – a system which has never been fully explained, by the way – but the business sim went viral after calling out pirates in a pretty sneaky way. The promotion drew as much criticism as praise, and the game itself has been called out for its similarities to Kairosoft’s Game Dev Story.

The newly greenlit titles were announced in a Steam community post.

Here’s the full list of titles which made the cut this round, complete with official descriptions, which in at leats one instance can be best dewcribed as “jibberish”.
