Description
A chosen selection of Greenlight Projects that shows three qualities:

-They are of high standard for what they are achieving to be.
-They are unique stand-alone projects that have a good amount of media to show for themselves (further along in development).
-They probably belong on Steam.

While subjective, this list is composed with a broad number of genres and stylings in mind (from popular to niche, horror to RTS, 3D to 2D, retro to modern, etc.) and hopes to provide users with a list of games that they could seriously consider purchasing on Steam.

Let's get some of these games on Steam.

Hi everyone, pls take a moment to check out our game. 1337 Studio introduces Asteroid Bounty Hunter, a space shooter, that on the first resembles old arcade games, but give it some time to experience the full dept of the game. Your primary mission is to blow things up, but as the game progresses you will find that numerous upgrades and new ships will spice the feel, dozens of unique boss fights, new enemies every level and more. So spare a moment and check it out.
