Steam Ending Greenlight Service; Replacing It With ‘Steam Direct’

As you all probably know, Steam Greenlight has been an amazing tool for indie developers getting to show their games to a wide audience and becoming published if enough interest is generated.

But, in a recent blog post by Steam, they have announced that Greenlight will soon be no more, but a replacement service will be available in Spring 2017. Named Steam Direct, publishers will now have to fill in a few forms, pay a submission fee, and you’ll be able to apply for your game to be released on Steam. The submission fee is still being decided, but an announcement will surely follow soon.

Many Steam users have expressed their opinions on Steam Direct, but I want to know whether you think the Greenlight replacement is a good idea or whether they should stick to their older ways! You can read the full blog post here, too.

  1. I don’t think there’s enough information on Direct yet to be certain, but if there is ANY curation at all then it’ll be an immediate improvement over the shit show (and I should point out that I don’t swear on here!) that is Greenlight.
