Steam Greenlight games have been voted on by “roughly” 2 million participants since it launched in August 2012, according to a recent developer group chat on Greenlight.

According to the group, Valve is also looking to make the API available to developers before pending projects get Greenlit.

The entire transcript of the discussion is posted over on Crunching Koalas, and in it, the developers highlight some of the ways in which the service could help projects out more – such as getting more views once a project is initially posted.

Valve’s Chet Faliszek also said the team plans to “continue Greenlighting titles in quicker, but smaller batches,” in order to “move more quickly.”

The firm’s Alden Kroll, also said that while Valve would like to Greenlight more items it is unable to due to the “hard technical limits” in how its tools and systems are currently set up.

“We’re really trying to do this, and we’re actively working on it, but it hard and is a lot of work,” he said.
