KSalue greenlightSteam Greenlight picks! Every now and then we’ll pick some Greenlight games (or software) with short first impressions of what’s been picked to hopefully help them get the greenlight from Valve and appear on Steam. Here’s our choices for today:

 

Salt, first person sailing, adventuring open world freedom! also pirates.

ULTRAWORLD, simple yet beautiful first person exploration game with minimalistic visuals.

Volo AirSport, diving wing suit simulator, it looks intense! dive, dive and glide! and do a flip on the way.

Code Spells, you play the game by coding it, this is new, and it looks really fun!

Interloper, a 2D real time strategy game with it’s own unique play style, with a nice warm art style.

 

Samudai, 2D feline samurai fighting game, local MP, and a minimalist art style (really looks good!)

Outpost 13, 2D pixelated point and click adventure game, where your the alien monster taking the shape of crew mates, and you want to eat/kill them. Nom Nom.

Viking Ghost, aside from that awesome heavy metal music in the trailer, it’s a top down arcade action adventure shooter, where you slaughter a lot of monsters, and take a step back and solve puzzles.

Next Arkham game in 2014?

Batman: Arkham City

According to a report from Kotaku.com, The next game in the Arkham series could be out in 2014 while several job posting matching of Rocksteady career opening have been found on CGhub.com.

These jobs are for an unnamed British developer ( Rocksteady studios are based in London ) which is working on “an extremely ambitious AAA 3rd person/Action Adventure Game”. The project “has been tipped to be one of the most successful games of 2014″.

Rocksteady has been very silent about what they are planning to do next but in May 2013, During the Dallas Comic-Con, Batman’s voice actor Kevin Conroy accidentally confirmed the existence of a new game in the Arkham series by stating that he’s been working on the “next Arkham game” for the past “nine or ten months”.

The detailed description of the job posting found on CGhub.com could suggest that Rocksteady and Warner Bros are planning to release a new Arkham game next year, but of course this is purely speculation.

Stay tuned for more updates …
