postheadericon Steam Green Light Promotes More Dirge

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little bit frustrated with Steams Green Light indie game promotion system.

For those of you who don’t know, the ubiquitous online content distribution and digital rights management platform Steam has, for the last few months, had a system whereby independent game designers can promote their wares subject of them being approved by both steam and a certain number of Steam’s users voting for their product.

I’m certain that being on Steam will have a great benefit for many tiny development houses.,Having your software promoted on a platform where literally millions see it every day is got to be good for sales, but am I the only one getting sick to death of seeing the same sort of title promoted over and over again.

While there are some fantastic imaginative titles on their, games that offer unique approaches and add something different and new to the canon of games available, most of those that get released all picked up by this platform or three very specific and very minority sub genres.

Platform Games.

Really? More platform games?

Yes I understand ever since Super Meat Boy and VVVVVVV there have been twists on a very old and jaded formula. But now the Green Light system is full of people jumping on the bandwagon with bolt together, “colour by numbers” – “ cookie cutter” platform games that look as dull as ditch-water.

Minecraft Clones.

Don’t get me wrong, I love minecraft. But why does every clone have to be a more or less exact copy. The zombies, skeletons, armour, crafting table, the same game mechanics left click, right click, break and place block. These aren’t clones these are absolutely 100% copies of minecraft. Why are there so many of them, why is no-one bothering to take the genre on a little bit?

Rogue likes.

I love rogue like games, I played net hack for years, spin-offs such as Diablo (at least in its first two incarnations) were fantastic but now about every fourth game on Steam Green Light system is a Rogue like. Bored bored bored.

Commercial games.

Why are there games from Electronic arts on a green light. Isn’t it meant for independent developers? What is the point of that? Valve do it as well with remakes of Portal and Counterstrike. This sullies the whole idea of an independent only platform. Sneaking in huge studio productions under the radar. Not good steam, not good.
