With over 700 games already submitted to Steam’s new Greenlight service, it’s getting hard keeping track of things. It’s also getting tough having to sift through the joke submissions to find the actual games.
In an effort to cut down on this, Valve today announced it will be introducing a $US100 fee for a game to be posted on Greenlight. The good news is that this should cut down on the number of crude platformers with the word GABEN in the title.
The better news is that Valve won’t even pocket the money; the proceeds will be donated to the Child’s Play charity, as they “have no interest in making money from this, but we do need to cut down the noise in the system”.
It’s not often you come across a perfect plan, but this sure looks pretty close.
