Continuing the evolution of the Steam platform, Valve has launched the promised Greenlight service, providing a way for the Steam community to vote on new hopeful indie games vying for a spot on the popular digital marketplace.
"We've been working on this feature for the last few months with the input from a group of indie partners, and the response has been extremely positive," said Valve's Anna Sweet. "With the additional help of beta testers, we are able to launch with a solid line-up of titles for the community to start viewing and rating. And, as we've done with all Steam features, we intend to continually grow and modify Greenlight as more and more developers and community members have a chance to get involved."
The service is reportedly intended to serve as a "clearing house" to assist Valve with the validation of potential Steam-delivered games, but Valve explains that it will also have the affect of providing "an incredible level of added exposure for new games and an opportunity to connect directly with potential customers and fans".
