Valve has made a few enemies with its decision to implement a $100 pay-wall to its new Greenlight service. Earlier today we published an article on CVG explaining why Valve should rethink the policy.
However, it's also become apparent that Greenlight is already hampered by a discoverability issue, with great games lost in an ocean of amateurish content and spam. So we've decided to highlight five promising projects that we feel are more worthy of your attention. If you like what you see, click on game's link and get voting.
Qasir al-Wasat: A Night in-Between
Possibly the best thing about Qasir al-Wasat: A Night in-Between is its commercially harmful Middle Eastern title. Trying to sell a game with an Arabic name to a gang of online Americans shows either poor business acumen or absolute belief that the game will sell itself.
