Valve’s Steam Greenlight initiative is off to a resounding start. Having launched just months ago in July, the community-driven program has promoted dozens of quality indie games thus far, thereby guaranteeing inclusion on Steam. Now, Valve has announced that it will accept software submissions on Greenlight – effectively immediately.
This ties in well with the recently added Software catalog on Steam, which currently consists of apps and utilities like 3DMark, Source Filmmaker, and ArtRage Studio.
Additionally, Valve has rolled out a few tweaks to the Greenlight interface. The front page now showcases recent submissions and makes favorites made by users on your Steam friends list viewable. Look past the break for a full overview of the changes.
Other changes made in this update:
* The updated front page of Steam Greenlight now highlights recent submissions and Friends’ favorites as well as recent news
* Developers can now add additional contributors to their items in Greenlight for the purpose of moderating and responding to community feedback
* A new widget-creator has been added under the “About” section to help promote your Steam Greenlight entry
* The FAQ has been updated to add some new questions and include information about Steam business in general
* Steam Greenlight logos are now available for download, also listed under the “About” section
