Half-Life remake amongst first games given the Greenlight by Valve

Valve has named the first ten titles to successfully pass through its Steam Greenlight process, including a remake of its classic first person shooter - Half-Life.

The games, as voted for by the Steam community, are now available in the ‘Greenlit’ section of the digital distribution service until they are finished.

There is more Half-Life in the first games, too, including horror mod Cry of Fear and zombie mod for Half-Life 2, No More Room in Hell.

Fully developed games meanwhile will be made available immediately.

The first ten games to have passed Steam Greenlight are:

Black Mesa

Cry of Fear

Dream Heroes & Generals

Kenshi

McPixel

No More Room in Hell

Project Zomboid

Routine Towns


“The Steam community rallied around these titles and made them the clear choice for the first set of titles to launch out of Greenlight,” said Valve’s Anna Sweet.


“Since launch, hundreds of titles have been submitted, with more coming in every day. We expect to be announcing more titles coming to Steam via Greenlight soon.”


Steam Greenlight was launched two weeks ago to enable users to vote for games they would like to see on the service, rather than making developers go through Valve’s own approval process.


It has recently been criticised by some users however due to Valve’s decision to add a $100 fee to developers submitting their games to the service, which some consider too big a barrier to entry for a title that may not be successful.
