Democracy arrives on Steam with Greenlight
Valve has announced a brand new system they will be introducing to allow the community to help choose new releases for Steam.
Greenlight is a brand new system in which developers and publishers can post information and media about their new games in an effort to convince the community to decide what will be released on Steam.
It uses Steam Workshop to organise the content and let Steam users rate their content and leave feedback.
"Making the call to publish or not publish a title isn't fun. Many times opinions vary and our internal jury is hung on a decision. But with the introduction of the Steam Workshop we realized an opportunity to enlist the community's help as we review certain titles and, hopefully, increase the volume and quality of creative submissions," said Valve's Anna Sweet.
Greenlight will launch on Steam on August the 30th.
