Steam Greenlight, the community game selection system on Steam, to approve ten more games for release on October 15th.
Steam Greenlight was launched a few weeks ago and a week ago, ten games made it through the first selection process. (Black Mesa, Cry of Fear, Dream, Heroes & Generals, Kenshi, McPixel, No More Room in Hell, Project Zomboid, Routine, and Towns.) Black Mesa, a rebuild of Half-Life has received the most attention out of the batch so far. The games are due to land in the Steam shop over the next few months.
According to a tweet today by a developer, the next batch of ten games will be selected on October 15th:
Steam is a new system put in place where players get to select the games to be released, instead of a small party of employees at a publisher. Developers post info, screenshots and more about their games and Steam members vote on what they want to see most.
If you're a Steam member, check out their site to participate in the selection process.

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
