Steam Greenlight is all the rage recently with Valve’s attempt to help indies and other up-and-comers get on the PC gaming map.  We have gone through the TPG archives to bring you a collection of games which should receive your vote.

Dungeon Dashers

Dungeon Dashers

“I’m self-funding Dungeon Dashers with my own money. I haven’t received any financial support from others, and I hope that the sales of Dungeon Dashers at this stage will help me fund its development further.”

Unepic

Unepic

“There was no funding. Unepic is a game done in free time with no investment.  Concerning support, I felt quite alone along this project. It’s been very hard to work during years with little emotional support.  Apart from my girlfriend, Just Carol (the artist who designed bosses and intro) gave me energies to go on as she believed in the project from the beginning.”

Underrail

“My family doesn’t understand what I do all that well but they have trust in me. My friends understand that better as some of them are also gamers and enjoy good old school RPGs.  But I get most emotional support from my girlfriend who understands my passion for computer games and my business ambitions better than anyone.”

BasketBelle

BasketBelle

“BasketBelle started as a pet project at night since I was an artist in the game industry by day. Once I left that company, I was full-time on BasketBelle, receiving zero dollars for months. I had plenty of friends and family cheering me on to keep working, so that was helpful.”

Clean Em Up

 Clean’Em Up

“I got depressed due to the lack of support of my family and my friends.  To me, no one was encouraging in what I was doing (as people in my community looks at video games as something useless and childish).  I stopped working on games (because whatever I did no one cared) for 5 years till I entered my college and I enrolled myself in computer engineering department because I still want to make games.”

Drip Drip

“Drip Drip was all self funded from years of savings while working for other game companies. We have received great emotional support from friends and family, who were very happy to see what we had created.”

Syder Arcade

 Syder Arcade

“It’s been almost a year of super hard work on our projects. And when you work day and night, and during week ends you are not sacrificing your time alone, but that of your loved one as well. By the fact that they did not kill us, you can easily imagine how huge and immensely important has been the support from our families and friends for all of us.”

Star Sonata 2

“The toughest aspect by far has always been marketing.  You can make the greatest game in the world, but that doesn’t magically bring thousands of players.  Since I enjoy working on the game so much, I find myself doing that mostly rather than working on marketing, but it’s the marketing that brings in people.”

Voxeliens PC Game

 Voxeliens

“As for funding, well I don’t think indie development needs to cost much except time (although that in itself is worth money). We both have a full time job which means we can pay the bills work on the project as long as we like. We’ve also taken advantage of open source software and this brings development costs down a lot.”

Frayed Knights

 Frayed Knights

“The modern gamer is simply deluged with games, and overwhelmed with marketing. The indie’s target audience is usually spread out across the Internet (and beyond…) It’s very hard to get any kind of attention at all. Even if your game is spectacular, there’s a good chance nobody will notice.”

Greenlight   Review   Interview   Official Site

 


 

Breaking The Rules Steam Greenlight

 Breaking The Rules

“The fact that until your game is not known to the general public (and 99.9% of indie games are not, at least in the first months) you feel like a little boat in the ocean, you never have certainty and you never know what the future holds for you .  In addition, piracy hurts a lot more indie than the majors because even losing few dollars can make a difference for an indie.”

Greenlight   Interview   Official Site

 


 

Koya Rift

 Koya Rift

“If I like making video games and I’m good at making video games, it would make sense that I could find my place doing it and making enough money to sustain myself. But I’m a student right now, and as an unknown indie dev I can’t make enough money to pay my bills. This is making me work more at a part-time job, and less in the game development market where I want to be. It really sucks that way.”

Dark Scavenger

 Dark Scavenger

“Dark Scavenger is worth the money. It’s funny and inventive which does something unique within the RPG genre. If you’re a fan of indie games, RPGs, laughing, and making meaningful decisions, then you should definitely pick this up.”

Metal Dead Steam Greenlight

 Metal Dead

“It’s a really charming game.  Even if you’re not much into the adventure genre, I recommend you give this a try.  Plus, there are zombies and metalheads in it. What else could you possibly want?”

Signal Ops

 Signal Ops

“The inspiration came from the much under-used spy genre and the idea of that guy you always see in movies like Sneakers or Mission Impossible sitting in the back of some oft-humorously disguised surveillance van whispering sweet nothings to his team in the field.”

Greenlight   Interview   Official Site

 


 

We wanted to pluck a few devs out of the crowd who we had either had the privilege of interviewing or reviewing.  We know there are quite a few titles available who are also deserving on Greenlight.  We feel every developer out there should have the opportunity to be seen.  These people have a passion for the business and it shows in the games they create. — TPG

        AW YEAH THIS IS GOOOOOD

        • Adam Ames

          Alright. Gotta get back to filling out the crappy job application.

          I do not hate this.

      • Adam Ames

        Totally downvoted you.

    • Adam Ames

      Seems OK. I was worried about how much the comments would get skinny as more replies were made.

      Totally not weird

      • Adam Ames

        Like the layout.

    • Adam Ames

      Hate the social crap.

    • Adam Ames

      I just replied to all of your posts and then wanted to reply to one of mine. The page reloaded and all of my comments are now gone.

    • Adam Ames

      Comments are now showing. That was strange. Maybe the system flagged me as spam?

  • Adam Ames

    Can we get rid of the stupid star drop down? That looks quite lame.

  • Adam Ames

    Is there an option to be notified of posted comments? I know as we get popular, we will not want this feature on, but WordPress sends me e-mails anytime a post is made with IP information.

    Just went into the CMS and we need to register or I am assuming you already did. It is very important we have the ability to mark or filter out spam and trolls.

    • Mike Bezek

      I get notifications as I am the admin of the account. I tried to add you as a moderator, but it keeps giving me an error when adding admin@truepcgaming. Go into the comments section and check it out and see if you can add one of your accounts in there. Be aware, you will get a TON of notifications.

      • Adam Ames

        It wants me to register at Disqus.

        • Mike Bezek

          Do it.

          • Adam Ames

            NO! YOU MAKE ME!

            Hey.. that was kinda cool. I can see a small notification on the right side when you are replying.

          • Mike Bezek

            Am I seeing things? You are enjoying this? You are enjoying change!?

  • Adam Ames

    Can I be a mod too? Please? :(
