Steam Greenlight Update

I wanted to update everyone on our progress on Steam Greenlight. This was written on August 5, 2014, and we’ve made a lot of progress in the last week! According to Steam’s stats, we’re 66% of the way to the top 100. A week ago we were only 50% of the way there!

Valve recently approved another batch of Greenlight titles, although this time they only chose 50 (the last several batches have been 75 games each). I also noticed that a lot of the games that had been in the top 20 didn’t get chosen this time…and most of those had done “vote and get a free copy of the game” giveaways, so maybe Valve has noticed and isn’t approving games that use that tactic?

I am curious about something though, because it doesn’t make very much sense to me. Here’s the current chart of our progress on Greenlight, compared to several of the current top games:

Notice how the top #100 item (the darker blue line) is actually less/lower than our line (bright green) at the end…so I’m not sure how we’re only 66% of the way to the top 100 if we already have more yes votes than the #100 item? I’m thinking that Valve is not just basing the top 100 on votes, but if that’s true, then I’m not sure what other criteria they’re using, or why we keep climbing up 1% for every 50 or so votes that we get. 😉

Anyone else noticing the same thing?

Hopefully we’ll keep up our current momentum, and get some more coverage about Letter Quest so that we can bring it to Steam soon!

If you have a moment, consider voting for Letter Quest on Greenlight. Thanks!
