Valve have just announced Steam Greenlight. The new service will work like the Steam Workshop, but for indie games. Creators can submit their work for rating by gamers, and the best rated games will then enter Valve’s approval process for inclusion in the Steam store.

The new service was revealed at a private event in London for British indie designers. Apparently the official website will launch soon, and we’ll have more information as soon as more anonymous text messages come through to my phone.

For taking arms in the name of your breakfast.
I do hope RMXP games will be supported, other wise, this seems cool! (altough you might have to sift through a ton of crap to find the gems)

You have to sift through a ton of crap to find the gems in the Steam Workshop as well, yet the good stuff usually manages to find a way to shine through. This definitely sounds good for hopeful game developers to make a name for themselves.

You don't purchase the game from Greenlight, if it gets enough attention and positive feedback it gets added to Steam, so I imagine the publisher/developer sets the price as usual.

Ah, see I was thinking people actually played the game and rated it on Greenlight like how Newground's blam system worked, and then it got added to Steam.

well if it supported for rpg maker games someone will need to work on the steam API and turn it into an usable rpg maker script.
and if they allowed for free i will make it for free since there are less indie games that are free.

I somehow doubt that they'll be accepting RPG Maker games, but I guess you never know.

If they accept To The Moon to steam, I see no reason why they wouldn't accept other RPG Maker games.

I'll just say that they probably wont accept ALL RPG Maker games but will probably accept some.

This should be a pretty cool service I think.

To The Moon isn't a Steam game. Reives sold it via another site for indie games.

So are the many articles indicating that the game is going to steam soon incorrect?

Huh. I hadn't heard about that. That's interesting... but then, To The Moon did receive a LOT of media attention despite being an RPG Maker game, so it's not too surprising that Steam's considering to add it in. Well, we'll see what happens then.

It could also be responsible for shattering the glass ceiling for RPG Maker games.  Frankly, I'd be happy to see more success even if I won't be any part of it.  I don't expect to see any half-assed games getting accepted obviously.

If RM games go on steam, I hope they keep them in their own section. That I can lock.

Why? It's not like bad RPG Maker games would get on Steam. There are a tons of shitty games made without game creation software like RPG Maker, but those don't make it on there either.

if i were you instead of developers talking about possible released or rpg maker game on steam. how about.
developer should start making a compact-able version of the Steamworks system for rpg maker vx,xp,ace, etc... so rpg maker developers can start making achievements or whatever steamworks can do to the game and the steam itself...

I just want to off-handedly point out that the Corpse Party series is made in RPG Maker and got ported to the PSP, clunky bad mechanics and all. Didn't sell much but it made a decent profit (not enough to warrant translating the sequel though).

RPG Maker games aren't inherently bad.  That being said, I'm heavily considering this.
