Steam’s Greenlight selection process has approved three new games and one new piece of software for the platform–a smaller batch than usual.

Edge of Space, Papers Please, and 2009 release Venetica have all been approved alongside the software Substance Designer 3. Steam usually accepts much larger batches of games via this process, but has stated that it hopes to speed things up in the future using this method.

“We have decided to Greenlight a smaller batch this time, so we can move more quickly. There are lots of titles getting attention, so we are likely to continue Greenlighting titles in this quicker, but smaller batch fashion,” the company said.

“These titles were selected on the same criteria we have been using in the past: Votes in Greenlight give us a hugely valuable point of data in gauging community interest along with external factors such as press reviews, crowd-funding successes, performance on other platforms, and awards and contests to help form a more complete picture of community interest in each title.”
