First Steam Greenlight game released: McPixel

Fast-paced point-and-click puzzler arrives thanks to user votes

Retro-look puzzle game McPixel has become the first game to be published on Steam thanks to Valve's new Steam Greenlight voting system.


Steam Greenlight launched on August 30, allowing users to vote on game projects and concepts posted by indie developers that they would like to see published on Steam.

McPixel is the first of ten games initially announced for Greenlight approval - a list which also included Half Life remake, Black Mesa.

According to the official blurb: "McPixel is a save-the-day guy that you guide through 100 short challenges in an old-school point'n'click fashion. The goal in each challenge is to prevent stuff from blowing up using available tools! You have only 20 seconds to save the day! Think quick! Key features: 100 mindblowing levels Bonuses, secrets and more Free DLC for everyone!"

Check out McPixel on Steam. Valve will announce the next batch of Greenlight-approved games in October.
