Today's update to Steam Greenlight brings a handful of changes and additions for fans and developers.
First, we heard from both developers and gamers that it was hard to have a meaningful conversation about a Greenlight game within the often lengthy comment section on the page. So starting today, each listing in Steam Greenlight will also have a dedicated discussion area where fans can ask questions, post feedback, and start conversations around the game.
For developers, we're adding more data on weekly voting for their title and greater visibility about their status within the Greenlight process.
Developers can now see a graph showing their up-vote traffic for each day of the past week, and compare it with the average votes for top-ranked games.
Next, we've made changes to help give developers a better idea of how their titles are progressing to being Greenlit. For games in the Top 100 ranking, devs will now see their specific numerical ranking. For games below the top 100, they will see their progress toward top 100.
And finally, mark your calendars for October 15. On that date, we'll be announcing at least 10 of the next games that the community has voted up and moving them to the 'Greenlit' section. Make sure you get your votes in and make your voice count.
